Our immense gratitude goes to renowned film and television actress Sarah Douglas, who is perhaps best known for her role as Kryptonian supervillain, Ursa in Superman and Superman II.
Sarah laid down her weapons and this week joined us to launch Doom and Gloom at the Last Chance Saloon, a fantastical romp through time zones, parallel universes and unknown galaxies.
Sarah’s army of fans followed her every move as Ursa, and were then further delighted when she played the prominent role as the evil Queen Taramis in Conan the Destroyer. She had turned down the role for fear of playing too many comic-strip villainesses. But when singer Grace Jones joined the cast, Sarah changed her mind. She was a huge admirer of Grace and the two women joined forces on set to counter the towering presence of super hero Conran, played by muscle-bound Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sarah and Grace are now the firmest of friends.
Not all of Sarah’s roles are super villains. She can also play a mean super bitch – as she demonstrated when she took the part of Pamela Lynch in the American primetime drama TV series, Falcon Crest.
Sarah returned to the UK to appear in a nationwide tour of Hamlet and completed a run in London’s West End in the play Roast Beef.
More recently, she appeared in The Hallowe’en Sessions in London’s Leicester Square theatre and made a couple of appearances as a hospital consultant in the popular TV drama series, Emmerdale.
As well as finding big success in filming, Sarah is much in demand as a voice-over artist, working with clients such as the BBC, Warners, Disney Junior, Big Finish and Audible.
She has recently finished filming the movie, Displacement.
