Sarah Desjardins


B: July 15, 1994 in Vancouver, British Columbia

Sarah Desjardins knew what she wanted to be when most children her age were still perfecting their bike riding. So convinced of her future, her parents found her an agent when she was just six, but the expense of launching a career at that age became prohibitive and those early hopes and pans were put on hold. By time she reached high school however, she set out once more to find an agent. Desjardins landed her first role in 2011’s made-for-TV movie Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story. Recent credits include playing Donna Sweett on the series Riverdale, and the role of Callie in the series Yellowjackets. Her latest project, the Netflix series The Night Agent is based on the novel by Matthew Quirk, and is a sophisticated, character-based, action-thriller centred on a low level FBI Agent (Gabriel Basso) who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings — until the night that it does, propelling him into a fast moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office. Sarah Desjardins plays the role of Maddie Redfield, the teenage daughter of the Vice President who is looking to escape his shadow. Canadian actors Kari Matchett, Ben Cotton and Eve Harlow also costar in the series.
