inmate profile: Sarah Lieving

It doesn't get any more veteran than Sarah Lieving: in five years she's made twelve (if you count the upcoming Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, which I totally do) films with The Asylum, including the first seven of her career. Known for her hottie-next-door looks and her strong, playfully brash persona, Ms. Lieving is a palpable threat to steal every single scene she's in, and her ability to blend into a smaller role or triumphantly take the lead is unparalleled among her peers, making her a natural fit in any script sent her way.

Bottom line, Sarah Lieving is the quintessential Asylum actress, our poster girl, our scream-queen with smarts, the Jamie Lee Curtis, the Barbara Steele of her era. Peruse if you will a complete list of her work with the Asylum (because it's so damn impressive):

War of the Worlds
Frankenstein Reborn (2005)...Jessica Halverson
The Beast of Bray Road (2005)...Kelly
King of the Lost World (2005)...Rita Summerlee
Dracula's Curse (2006)...Alex Deveraux
666: The Child (2006)...Erika Lawson
The 9/11 Commission Report (2006)...Valerie
The Hitchhiker (2007)...Melinda
The Apocalypse (2007)...Janis
Invasion of the Pod People (2007)...Louise
Airline Disaster (2010)...Annette Franklin(uncredited)
Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus (2010)...Agent Hutchinson

Sarah's other notable upcoming projects include playing the Wicked Witch of the East in The Witches of Oz 3D, directed by Asylum alum Leigh Scott, and Super Shark, directed by Fred Olen Ray, father of MSvC director Christopher Ray.

Sarah Lieving, consider yourself saluted.
