Biography

A notable actress, writer and director, Sara Gilbert made a name for herself as a unique female voice from the time she first appeared as Roseanne Barr and John Goodman's spunky, opinionated onscreen daughter on the boundary-pushing sitcom, "Roseanne" (ABC, 1988-1997). Her "regular girl" looks and independent spirit lent an authenticity to a string of early roles as teenage misfits and outsiders, winning loyalty among real-life counterparts who rarely found anyone they could relate to on the big and small screens. Although she would never again achieve the level of fame she enjoyed as a child actress on "Roseanne," Gilbert held tight to her individuality as she explored a range of acting and production roles, as well as in her non-traditional personal life as a supporter of progressive political and social causes.
