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.
Previously a student at Professional Children's School in New York and Dwight Morrow High School in Englewood, New Jersey, Sarah eventually decided to put full concentration in pursuing an acting career following her graduation from Hollywood High School to which she had transferred her study. Throughout the 80s, she managed to be involved in a series of both small and big screen productions, among others "Somewhere Tomorrow" (1983), "The Almost Royal Family" (1984), "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" (1985), "The Room Upstairs" (1987), and "Pursuit" a.k.a. "Twist of Fate" (1989). Welcoming the next decade, she gloriously received positive reviews from the critics for exhibiting such wonderful comedic skills in "L.A. Story" (1991).
From that point, Sarah was seen more in film features rather than TV programs as she only starred in two small screen projects
