Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, I began my career as Judy Lynn Kamen in the first grade play, where I appeared in the role of Baby Bear. My obvious bent towards dramatic exits at bedtime led my parents to nickname me “Sarah” (Bernhardt), and my love for singing, dancing, and the spoken word led me to perform every chance I got and to study music, dance, and voice throughout childhood and young adulthood.
After graduating from Levittown Memorial High School, I attended Hofstra University as a Theatre Arts Performance major for three years, interrupted my studies to marry a McMillan, transferred to Colorado State University, and graduated with a BA in Speech and Theatre Arts.
Over the years, my professional career has provided me with a variety of opportunities. I’ve been a theatre arts teacher, singer-songwriter, dancer, print model, and actress in live theatre, interactive theatre, films, commercials, industrials, music videos, new media, and voice over.
I can currently be heard voicing the computer in a feature film called Average Joe, that can be purchased at: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/dvd-now-hiring-jason-sedillo/2988
and can be seen in An American in Texas on Amazon Prime! https://www.amazon.com/American-Texas-James-Paxton/dp/B07GBY58BB
My family moved to south central Texas in 1982, and I’ve been learning to appreciate pecans, the Texas Hill Country, and the rich multicultural heritage found here ever since. These days…when not acting… I can often be found hanging out with my precious grandson (who is currently in elementary school), working out, doing yoga, substitute teaching, and …during Christmas season…working as Mrs. Claus at Morgan’s Wonderland.
