DEBORAH ANN WOLL (Sarah Hawkins) Originally a dancer and
pianist, Deborah Ann Woll caught the acting bug in high school when she landed
starring roles in several productions. Continuing her education at the most
prestigious institutions, Woll attended Carnegie Mellon's pre-college program,
London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts Shakespeare Intensive, and the
University of Southern California's School of Theatre. Woll thrived in USC's
conservatory environment, expanding her repertoire, winning several
performance-based scholarships and awards, and starring in over 20 productions
including her personal favorite, Polly Peachum in the Brecht/Weill classic
"Three Penny Opera."
Upon graduation, Woll was immediately signed and began booking guest star
roles on acclaimed shows such as "Life," "ER," "The Mentalist," and "My Name is
Earl." Woll's big break came when Alan Ball cast her as the irresistible ingĂ©nue
Jessica Hamby in the first season of "True Blood."
During two hiatuses from "True Blood," Woll starred in five films in
addition to SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA: CATCH .44 with Bruce Willis, Forest Whitaker,
Malin Ackerman, and Nikki Reed, SOMEDAY THIS PAIN WILL BE USEFUL TO YOU with
Marcia Gay Hardin and Ellen Burstyn, MOTHER'S DAY with Rebecca DeMornay; LITTLE
MURDER with Terrence Howard, Josh Lucas and Lake Bell; and HIGHLAND PARK with
Billy Burke, Parker Posey and Danny Glover.
A self-proclaimed nerd, Woll enjoys computer games, Mystery Science Theater
3000, and every kind of puzzling game imaginable.
