Sarah Chalke

Sarah Cassandra Chalke (born August 27, 1976 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a Canadian television and movie actress best known for playing Dr. Elliot Reid on the NBC sitcom Scrubs and Becky Conner Healy on ABC's Roseanne.


Chalke was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, the middle of the three daughters of Doug and Angie Chalke. Her mother is from Rostock, Germany, and her entire family moved to Canada in 1952. Chalke maintains contact with her German relatives. According to a Scrubs commentary track, she used to attend the German school in her hometown twice a week. She speaks German and French fluently. She is currently engaged to Jamie Afifi.


Chalke's acting career began at the age of 8 when she began appearing in musical theatre productions. At 16, she became a reporter on the Canadian children's show KidZone. Her "big break" came in 1993 when she took over the role of Becky (Conner) Healy on Roseanne from Lecy Goranson; she also made a non-Becky cameo appearance in the Roseanne episode "Halloween: The Final Chapter" (#178, originally aired October 31, 1995). She returned briefly to Canada where she starred in the CBC television comedy Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy (1998-1999). In 2001, she was cast as Dr Elliot Reid in the NBC comedy series Scrubs. She has appeared in several feature films, starting with Ernest Goes to School (1994), but has yet to take a leading role. She also appeared in Channel 101's The 'Bu with The Lonely Island, a parody of the hit show The O.C., but was credited as Pamela Fenton.
