Her real name is Gypsy Kemp but she changed it to Sarah Kemp as when she was young it was such an unusual name. Her first credited role on TV was in the series Shoestring which appeared on BBC television between 1979 and 1980. She played an Australian hitchhiker. Her name appears as Gypsie Kemp in the credits, but in Shoestring she is listed as appearing as Sarah Kemp in The Partnership. She then appeared in Sporting Chance in 1981. Her last credited role was in the TV movie, Mercy Mission: The Rescue of Flight 771 in 1993.
