Here’s why Sadie from Chemical Hearts looks so familiar
25th August 2020

There’s a new high school movie out for anyone who loves their teen drama with a little darkness: Chemical Hearts. Riverdale‘s Lili Reinhart and Euphoria‘s Austin Abrams star in the adaptation of Krystal Sutherland’s young adult novel (via Popsugar). Chemical Hearts, which premiered on Amazon Prime on August 21, tells the story of Henry (Abrams) who becomes fascinated with mysterious new student Grace (Reinhart).

Veteran TV actress Sarah Jones plays Henry’s older sister, Sadie. She described her role to Nude Magazine: “She moved back into their parents’ house while reeling over a divorce due to her ex-husband’s infidelity and working through it all, while reconnecting with her kid brother who isn’t so much of a kid anymore.” If Chemical Hearts viewers think they recognize the actress behind Sadie from somewhere, there are more than a few options. Jones has had recurring roles on a number of TV shows.

Sarah Jones' prolific career

Florida native Sarah Jones got her first recurring TV role on the Showtime series, Huff (via IMDb). Jones starred on four episodes of the show, which also starred Hank Azaria. She kept the momentum going on premium cable shows with HBO’s Big Love, which focused on a polygamist family. Jones played Brynn, a teen dating the family patriarch’s son (via TVFanatic). On Sons of Anarchy, she played Polly Zobelle, the daughter of a white supremacist leader (via Sharp). She starred alongside Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul in the Hulu series, The Path. Most recently, Jones starred as astronaut Tracy Stevens in For All Mankind, a science fiction show on AppleTV. 

Jones told Pibe Magazine she was inspired to act by Charlize Theron. “My impression of ‘blonde actress’ roles were that they were essentially objectified archetypes more often than not — just a lot of projection without a lot of substance beyond what the actress personally brought to it, ya know?” Jones said. “Then Charlize Theron comes along, tells a story about a murderer, not only from the perspective of a serial killer, but from the female perspective as well…It was revolutionary for me.”
