Biography

To the millions of fans that made the Fox political thriller series "24" (Fox, 2001-10) one of the network's most-watched programs, actress Sarah Clarke was inextricably linked with her ally-turned-turncoat character, Nina Myers. As Meyers, Clarke went from being the lover of Agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and second-in-command of the Los Angeles Counter Terrorism Unit, to an assassin who was eventually assassinated. Clarke had been a busy character player on prime time and in independent film for several years prior to her casting on the series, and following Meyer's demise Clarke was linked to another pop culture phenomenon when she was cast as the mother of lovelorn teen Bella in the "Twilight" film franchise, which further spotlighted the actress' talent for portraying people on the sometimes dangerous fringes of society.
