Canadian actress Sarah Gadon graduated from teenage roles on television series to more complex and mature turns in independent features like David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" (2011), "Cosmopolis" (2012) and "Maps to the Stars" (2014), as well as more mainstream efforts like the horror update "Dracula Untold" (2014). Born April 4, 1985 in Toronto, Ontario, she was encouraged by her parents to pursue her interest in performing, and spent much of her early years training as both a dancer and an actress. She studied as a Junior Associate at the National Ballet School of Canada while also attending the Claude Watson School for the Performing Arts, and made her screen debut at the age of 10 in a 1998 episode of "La Femme Nikita" (USA Network, 1997-2001). For much of the late '90s and early 2000s, Gadon worked steadily in television, landing guest roles on "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" (YTV/Nickelodeon, 1992-2000) and TV movies like the Hilary Duff vehicle "Cadet Kelly" (Disney Channel, 2002) before making her feature film debut in the teen comedy "Fast Food High" (2003) opposite Alison Pill. By the late 2000s, Gadon had graduated from juvenile roles to more mature turns in series like "The Border" (CBC, 2008-2010) and the historical crime drama "Murdoch Mysteries" (City/CBC, 2008- ). She also lent her voice to several animated programs, including the amusingly macabre "Ruby Gloom" (YTV, 2006-08), which earned her a Gemini nomination for her performance in the titular role. In 2011, she began a fruitful collaboration with Canadian director David Cronenberg with a supporting turn as Emma Jung, wife of psychoanalyst Carl Jung, in "A Dangerous Method," and reunited with him the following year in "Cosmopolis" as the new spouse of Robert Pattinson's self-obsessed financial executive. Her work with the sometimes-controversial filmmaker seemed to spur a sea change in her screen projects: she was a schoolgirl targeted by a vampire (Lily Cole) in "The Moth Diaries" (2011), then played a celebrity harvested for viruses by a mysterious company in "Antiviral" (2012), a thriller directed by Cronenberg's son, Brandon. Gadon moved between major roles in independent dramas like "Enemy" (2013) and minor turns in major U.S. productions like "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (2014) before landing substantial roles in two high-profile projects. In "Dracula Untold," she portrayed the wife of Transylvanian ruler turned vampire Vlad the Impaler (Luke Evans), while in Cronenberg's "Map to the Stars," she was the ghostly vision of a deceased Hollywood star.
