Sarah-Jane Redmond is a Canadian actor and acting coach. Redmond's work has spanned film, television and theatre productions, often in science fiction roles. She trained partly under Canadian actor William B. Davis, before founding a theatre group and branching into screen work; later in her career she began teaching acting for the New Image College of Fine Arts in British Columbia, in addition to directing theatre performances at the college.
Redmond was born in Cyprus and raised in both England and Canada, further pursuing acting studies in both nations. Several of her screen roles have come in collaboration with screenwriter Chris Carter, who cast her in several of his television series. Outside of acting, Redmond practices martial arts and boxing.
Sarah-Jane Redmond was born in Cyprus, where her father was stationed during his career with the Royal Air Force. Her family moved to the Lake District in England, before emigrating to Canada. She studied acting both in Canada and England, before founding an amateur theatre company, Holy Barbarians, in order to pursue stage work. Part of Redmond's study took place at the acting school of Canadian actor William B. Davis. During this time, she also worked as a dancer in Toronto.
Redmond's first screen role was in an episode of The X-Files; this introduced her to director David Nutter and writer Chris Carter, who would later cast her in a recurring role in the series Millennium, as well as the 2008 film The X-Files: I Want to Believe. Her other television roles focus on science-fiction programming, with appearances in Harsh Realm, Andromeda, Dark Angel, The Outer Limits and Smallville.
Redmond's feature film appearances include 2002's Hellraiser: Hellseeker; she auditioned for this role using bondage artwork by Eric Stanton instead of a standard actor's headshot. Other film roles include The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Case 39, The Invitation, and The Entrance. The latter film earned Redmond a Leo Award nomination in 2007 for Best Lead Performance by a Female in a Feature Length Drama; she went on to lose the award to Alexia Fast for Past Tense.
Redmond also taught acting at the New Image College of Fine Arts in Vancouver, British Columbia. During her time with the faculty, she directed the college's 2011 production of the Stephen Adly Guirgis play The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, alongside fellow actor Frank Cassini.
