Rising star Sarah Jones is the keeper of all of Brookyln’s best kept secrets. You may know the actress from her roles on Texas Rising alongside Bill Paxon and Ray Liotta, or on hit series like Sons of Anarchy, HBO’s Big Love and Showtime’s HUFF. If you haven’t made acquaintance with the blond beauty just yet, you definitely will soon. Sarah will next be seen on HULU’s upcoming series The Path premiering March 30th, opposite Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan. Her character Alison is a defector of the Meyerist movement, scarred by the disappearance of her husband. The mysterious and moving role is another testament to Sarah’s talent. The series was created by Jessica Goldberg (Parenthood) and is being executive produced by Jason Katims (Parenthood, Friday Night Lights).
