Facts about Sarah Chalke
Sarah Chalke Biography
Canadian-American actress Sarah Chalke plays Dr. Eliot Reid, the loony, toothsome blonde from TV’s Scrubs (with Zach Braff). On stage or in front of the camera since childhood, her break in Hollywood came in 1993, when she took over the role of Becky in the sitcom Roseanne. Chalke replaced actress Alicia “Lecy” Goranson as the older daughter of Roseanne Barr and John Goodman in the show’s sixth season. Fans called her “Second Becky,” and both Chalke and Goranson played the part on and off as a running gag for the remainder of the series (it ended in 1997). The success of Scrubs (2001- present) made Chalke a TV star; while on the show she also appeared on the New York stage and in feature films, including Cake (2005) and Chaos Theory (2007).
