Sarah Marissa Wullinger, the distinguished German actress, has been acting since she was a very young girl. She studied ballet and performed in small plays which gave her an intense passion for acting and being on stage as a trained theater actress. When she turned 15, she somehow convinced her parents to send her to an international school where she could learn fluent English so she could eventually act in American films. When she was old enough she moved to Los Angeles and attended the legendary Stella Adler Academy of Acting where so many film greats had studied before her. Actors such as Mark Ruffalo, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro and Robert De Niro among others, preceded her there.
Sarah immersed herself in all things acting once she arrived in L.A. She was cast in too many stage plays to name them all but here are a few: Moon for the Misbegotten, Othello, Marvin’s Room, Closer, Modigliani and Identity Crisis, among others. She also received high praise for three crucial parts she portrayed in Tony Kushner’s prestigious play Angels in America. In it she played a Jewish Rabbi, a Republican Lawyer and a Mormon Woman.
Sarah immediately started acting professionally when she graduated from Stella Adler. She was cast in the psycho thriller The Islander and then in a commercial for the internationally known brand Maidenform. After that, she was able to continue working in the U.S. because she received her O1 “Alien of Extraordinary Ability Visa.
