Biography

Sarah Paulson (born December 17, 1974 in Tampa, Florida) is a Golden Globe-nominated American actress.

Paulson was a series regular on the cult television show American Gothic and the WB series Jack & Jill (1999), playing the character "Elisa Cronkite". In addition, she had a minor role in the HBO series Deadwood, and was a focal character in an episode of the critically acclaimed FX series Nip/Tuck.

Paulson briefly appeared on the NBC series Leap of Faith (2002) as the main character, but the show was short-lived. In 2004, she had a supporting role in the ABC series The D.A., but that show also ended after a few episodes.

Paulson starred in a revival of The Glass Menagerie on Broadway, and has appeared Off-Broadway in Killer Joe, Talking Pictures, and Colder Than Here.

Paulson's movie credits include Down with Love, What Women Want, The Other Sister, Levitation, and Serenity.

In fall 2006, Paulson co-starred in NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip playing Harriet Hayes, one of the stars of the show-within-a-show. To date, this is her most notable role, earning her a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actress in a TV Series. However, NBC canceled the series on May 14, 2007.

Although born in Florida, Paulson spent a considerable amount of time growing up in New York City, especially Brooklyn, where she went to elementary school for a few years. She also spent some of her childhood in Maine.

In 2005, Paulson was indirectly outed by girlfriend Cherry Jones during the 59th Tony Awards, when Jones thanked her by the name "Laura Wingfield" (the character Paulson was then playing in The Glass Menagerie) during her award acceptance speech. This speech is the only public proclamation of their relationship.
