Biography

Sarah Chalke (born August 27, 1976 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a Canadian television and movie actress best known for portraying Dr. Elliot Reid on the NBC sitcom Scrubs and also for portraying the second Becky Conner-Healy on ABC's Roseanne.

Chalke was born in Ontario, Canada, and was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. She is the middle of the three daughters of Doug and Angie Chalke. Her mother is from Rostock, Germany. Chalke maintains contact with her German relatives. According to a Scrubs commentary track, she used to attend the German school in her hometown twice a week. Her first language is English, though she speaks German and French fluently. She is a vegetarian. She is currently engaged to Jamie Afifi.

In 2001, she was cast as Dr. Elliot Reid in the NBC comedy series Scrubs. She has appeared in several feature films, starting with Ernest Goes to School (1994). She also appeared in Channel 101's The 'Bu with The Lonely Island, a parody of the hit show The O.C., but was credited as Pamela Fenton. In a recent interview on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, she commented on how as Scrubs has progressed, she seems to be wearing less and less clothing, and is considered by some as a 'sex symbol'.

Chalke lost her aunt and grandmother to breast cancer because they weren't diagnosed while the disease was in its early stages. As a result, Chalke decided to encourage breast cancer awareness, and starred in Lifetime's movie Why I Wore Lipstick To My Mastectomy.
