Biography

Sarah Drew was an American actress best known for her television roles as Hannah Rogers on the teen drama "Everwood" (WB 2002-2006) and Dr. April Kepner on the hit medical drama "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC 2005- ). Drew was born on October 1, 1980 in Charlottesville, Virginia. After graduating high school, Drew began to pursue an acting career in earnest and attended the University of Virginia with a focus on Drama. She first broke into the entertainment industry fairly early, but as a voice actress at first. Fans of MTV's deadpan animated series "Daria" recognized Drew as the voice of vapid high school teenager Stacy Rowe, one of the best friends of Daria's bratty sister Quinn Morgendorffer. She continued her voice work for "Daria" throughout her college years until she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Drama in 2002. A year after graduation, she appeared alongside Academy Award-winner Cuba Gooding Jr. in the sports drama "Radio." In 2004, Drew joined the cast of The WB's teen drama "Everwood." She played the recurring role of the smart, but incredibly shy Hannah Rogers who developed a crush on Bright Abbott, one of the series' main characters, played by Chris Pratt. Her involvement in "Everwood" led to other opportunities over the next few years, which included a recurring role as Kitty Romano, the naive wife of the closeted Sterling Cooper employee Sal Romano (Bryan Batt), on the critically acclaimed series "Mad Men" (AMC 2007- ). Drew's biggest break to date came in 2009 when she cast as Dr. April Kepner in ABC's "Grey's Anatomy." At first, Drew's Dr. Kepner was originally slated to appear in only two episodes as an intern of Seattle Grace's rival hospital, Mercy West Hospital. However, show creator Shonda Rhimes thought Drew's natural portrayal of the overly eager and vulnerable Kepner fit perfectly for the show and extended her contract to become a fully-fledged regular in Season 7.
