Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A beneficiary of the exploding horror film renaissance of the mid-2000's, newcomer Sarah Roemer firmly established herself as an heir apparent to the title of "celluloid scream queen," thanks to her performances in three high-profile genre pics. Making her maiden voyage into the milieu as a supporting character in the 2006 sequel, "The Grudge 2," Roemer soon graduated to a co-starring role in director D.J. Caruso's teen thriller, "Disturbia" (2007). A surprise hit at the box office, "Disturbia" racked up an impressive $22 million in its opening weekend and transformed the gorgeous Roemer into a hot property virtually overnight.A native of San Diego, CA, Sarah Christine Roemer was born Aug. 28, 1984. Tall, athletic and strikingly attractive, Roemer began modeling at age 15 after she was discovered buying coffee at a local 7-Eleven.

The fact that Roemer possessed natural talent - not to mention a strong resemblance to fellow beauty, Jessica Biel - no doubt helped the model transition into acting.

A native of San Diego, CA, Sarah Christine Roemer was born Aug. 28, 1984. Tall, athletic and strikingly attractive, Roemer began modeling at age 15 after she was discovered buying coffee at a local 7-Eleven. Like many models, however, Roemer got bit by the acting bug soon after moving to Los Angeles. The fact that Roemer possessed natural talent - not to mention a strong resemblance to fellow beauty, Jessica Biel - no doubt helped the model transition into acting. Roemer's first film - the dark indie comedy, "Wristcutters: A Love Story" (2006) - was an offbeat tale about the post-suicide afterlife and became a cult hit overseas, eventually going on to win top prize at New York's Gen Art Film Festival.

Roemer's first major role, however, was in the Columbia Pictures production, "The Grudge 2" (2006), the sequel to the hit 2004 horror flick starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Cast in a supporting role, Roemer portrayed Lacey, the teenage girl from Chicago who falls victim to the grudge curse near the end of the movie. Roemer's breakthrough picture, however, was "Disturbia" (2007), a modestly budgeted thriller starring Shia LeBeouf and Carrie-Anne Moss. Taking its cue from the classic Hitchcock thriller, "Rear Window" (1954), "Disturbia" told the story of Kale (LaBeouf), a troublesome teenager who has been placed under house arrest for the entire summer. With his movements restricted by an electronic tracking device around his ankle, the restless teen eventually turns to voyeurism as a means of alleviating his boredom. Kale's clandestine new hobby leads him to spy on his neighbors, where he discovers Ashley (Roemer), the daughter of a new family next door. In typical teenage fashion, Kale promptly falls head over heels for Ashley. Unfortunately, this blossoming romance is abruptly sidetracked when Kale stumbles onto the knowledge that another one of his neighbors, Mr. Turner (David Morse) - is actually a serial killer.

Continuing her reign in terror movie roles, Roemer followed up her impressive turn in "Disturbia" with the lead role in Hyde Park Entertainment's "Asylum" (2007), another youth-oriented thriller. In it, Roemer played Madison, a college student who discovers that her dormitory was once a notorious asylum for the mentally insane. After appearing in the films "Fired Up!" (2009), "Walking Madison" (2010) and "The Con Artist" (2010), Roemer moved to television, co-starring in the thriller "The Event" (CBS 2010-11) and "Chosen" (Crackle 2013- ). On the set of thr latter series, Roemer met co-star Chad Michael Murray, whom she married in January 2015.
