|Born||July 17, 1983|
Winter Springs, Florida, U.S.
Sarah Jones (born July 17, 1983) is an American actress who is known for playing Det. Rebecca Madsen in the Fox TV series Alcatraz and astronaut Tracy Stevens in Ronald D. Moore's alternate history 1960s space drama For All Mankind.
Jones was born in Winter Springs, Florida. She graduated from Winter Springs High School in 2001. She "grew up dancing" with the expectation that it would become her career, but she turned to acting as "the next best thing" after her dancing ended because of injuries. She had gotten her first break working as a dancer for the MTV Movie Awards.
She began in acting with a role on Medical Investigation, before going on to appear in other television credited roles that same year, including episodes of Cold Case and Judging Amy, before she appeared in the 2007 Hallmark Channel movie, Murder 101: College Can Be Murder.
Jones also appeared in a recurring role as Leah on the television show Huff, guest-starred in a 2006 episode of Ugly Betty as Natalie Whitman, and Big Love as Brynn. She played the youngest of three sisters who run a wedding planner business in Fox's 2007 short-lived dramedy series The Wedding Bells. She also appeared in two independent movies, Still Green and The Blue Hour. Jones won the Spirit of the Independent Award at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival for Best Ensemble for Still Green (2007), which she shared with Ryan Kelley, Douglas Spain, Noah Segan, Paul Costa and the rest of the cast of the film. She can also be seen in the Cary Brothers music video Who You Are.
In 2011, she had a featured guest starring role in the FX crime drama Justified episode "The Life Inside". Other notable credits include a recurring role on Big Love and Lone Star. Jones then signed on to play the lead role of Det. Rebecca Madsen in the J.J. Abrams show, Alcatraz. Jones has received wide recognition for her portrayal. She took part in a recreation of the chase scene in Bullitt. The show premiered on January 16, 2012. While the series itself was moderately received, her performance was generally praised by critics. Despite an impressive start, the series was officially cancelled by Fox on May 9, 2012, due to dropping viewership throughout its run. However, Jones was featured in a May 2012 spread for Vanity Fair magazine, and she quickly returned to series television, being cast as a regular on Vegas.
In 2018, Jones was cast as Lynn in CBS drama pilot L.A. Confidential, based on James Ellroy's 1990 novel of the same name. That same year, it was announced that she had been cast in one of the lead roles of Tracy Stevens in a space drama entitled For All Mankind created and written by Ronald D. Moore. The series premiered in November 2019.
