GLITTER: Did you always want to be an actress?

SARI: Actually no! When I was very young, I at first wanted to be a veterinarian because I love animals. Acting was something that kind of just fell in my lap, and I’ve been hooked ever since!

 

GLITTER: What can you tell us about the new NBC series, A.P. Bio? Who do you play?

SARI: A.P. Bio is about philosopher, Jack Griffin, who doesn’t get his dream job and ends up working as an A.P. biology professor in Toledo, Ohio. He discovers that he can use his quick, smart, and clever students as his own personal minions to get revenge on people from his past. It’s a hilarious comedy produced by Lorne Michaels, Mike O’Brien, and Seth Myers from SNL. I’m very blessed to be a part of it! My character’s name is Grace – a cute, sweet, kind high schooler in Jack Griffin’s A.P. Biology class. She’s just happy to go with the flow and always gets caught up in the antics of her classmates. She is very book smart, but her street smarts could definitely use some work.

GLITTER: What other roles have you had in the past?

SARI: I played a character named Zoe on Disney Channel’s Abby Normal. She was a Nancy Drew-like character who investigates a mystery in her neighbor’s home. I have played a pirate in space named Lycra in the Nickelodeon pilot, Buccaneer Galaxy. She goes on adventures with her sidekicks. I have also played a credit card theft operator that was interrogated by the FBI in the investigative drama series, Perception.
