Sarah Catharine Paulson
December 17, 1975 (age 36)
Tampa, Florida, U.S.
Cherry Jones (2005 - 2009)
She was a series regular on the cult television show American Gothic and the WB
series Jack & Jill (1999), playing the character "Elisa Cronkite". In addition,
she had a minor role in the HBO series Deadwood, and was a focal character in an
episode of the critically acclaimed FX series Nip/Tuck.
Paulson briefly appeared on the NBC series Leap of Faith (2002) as the main
character, but the show was short-lived. In 2004, she had a supporting role in
the ABC series The D.A., but that show also ended after a few episodes.
Paulson starred in a revival of The Glass Menagerie on Broadway, and has
appeared Off-Broadway in Killer Joe, Talking Pictures, and Colder Than Here.
Paulson's movie credits include Down with Love, What Women Want, The Other
Sister, Levitation, and Serenity.
In the 2006-2007 television season, Paulson co-starred in NBC's Studio 60 on the
Sunset Strip playing Harriet Hayes, one of the stars of the show-within-a-show.
To date, this is her most notable role, earning her a Golden Globe nomination
for Best Supporting Actress in a TV series. In December 2008, Paulson appeared
in the screen adaptation of Will Eisner's comic book The Spirit, playing an
updated version of the character Ellen Dolan.
On August 25, 2008, ABC ordered her pilot Cupid to series. It was a remake of
the 1998 program which starred Jeremy Piven and Paula Marshall. In the new
version of the series, Paulson starred opposite Bobby Cannavale. The series
debuted in late March 2009 on ABC, but was quickly canceled on May 19, 2009
after only 6 episodes aired.
Paulson portrayed a circa 1982 Ellis Grey, the mother of main character Meredith
Grey, on the hit ABC primetime drama Grey's Anatomy in February 2010. She
will play Nicolle Wallace in the upcoming political film Game Change.
Paulson was born in Tampa, Florida, but was raised in Brooklyn, and Maine.
Paulson dated the actress Cherry Jones. Jones has been accused of indirectly
outing Paulson in her acceptance speech after winning a Tony Award in 2005;
Jones thanked her by the name of the character that she was currently playing,
The Glass Menagerie's "Laura Wingfield". However, the pair had attended the
awards together and kissed right after Jones won, thus making it clear that
Paulson was not secretive about the relationship. In 2007, Paulson and Jones
declared their love for each other in an interview with VelvetPark at Women's
Event 10 for the LGBT Center of NYC. They have since broken up.
