Bestowed with such a remarkable talent in performing arts, particularly comedic acting, Sarah Jessica Parker, without doubt, has gained the status as one of the most prominent actresses in Hollywood film industry. Trained in singing also ballet since she was merely a little child, Sarah was born on March 25, 1965 in Nelsonville, Ohio to Stephen and Barbra Parker who then decided to split up not long after her birth. Her mother afterwards remarried to a businessman named Paul Forste, thus delivered four other children, so she consequently has seven siblings altogether. Raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, the girl joined Cincinnati Ballet before followed her family to New York City where she enthusiastically polished her dancing skills at the American Ballet Theatre while took time to sing with Metropolitan Opera in its productions of "Cavaleria Rusticana", "Pagliacci", and "Parade."

Encountered her small screen debut through NBC's "The Little Match Girl" at the age of eight, Sarah later earned her first Broadway role in "The Innocents" which led to the family's relocation to New Jersey in 1976 with the purpose to support her dream of becoming an actress. This continued to another one in "Annie" by the year 1978 and a film debut in "Rich Kids" (1979) in which her scenes afterwards were unfortunately deleted. However, her disappointment did not last long as she satisfyingly was selected by CBS to join the cast of its comedy series entitled "Square Pegs" (1982-1983). Portraying an awkward, bespectacled teenager named Patty Greene, she surprisingly gained adequate attention from the audience to rise as a bright rising star of Hollywood.
