Sarah-Jane Potts (born 30 August 1976), is an English actress, best known for her roles as Saint (Sarah) in Sugar Rush, as Ellie, Abs' on/off girlfriend on Casualty[2] and as Jo Lipsett in Waterloo Road. Potts is also the sister of actor Andrew-Lee Potts,[2] best known for his part as Connor Temple in Primeval. She is currently in Holby City as Senior Nurse Eddi McKee on AAU, playing a different character to the one she played in Casualty.

Early in her career she noted that, "In the three years I have been acting I have spent most of the time looking dirty, scruffy, ill or tarty."[3]


Personal life

Potts attended Bradford's Scala Kids stage school with her brother Andrew.[1] As a teenager she worked in a greasy spoon cafe in Bradford.[4] She left school during her A-levels to star in Meat.[4] From 1999-2001 she dated Erik Palladino. They met at a film festival in Sweden during the summer of '99 and at the end of the year she moved to LA to live with him.[5][6] She met her ex-husband, Tony Denman, when filming National Lampoon's Barely Legal and they were married in June 2002.[7][8] She has a son, named Buster Alan Denman, born 2004.[2]
