Sarah Bolger stars as “Emily Thomas,” the beautiful “guera” next door and childhood sweetheart of EZ. But when Romeo departed, this Juliet didn't unsheathe the dagger; she traded it in for diamond studs and a mansion on the hill.
Hailing from Ireland, Bolger was most recently seen in the Starz series Counterpart for executive producer Justin Marks and Morten Tyldum. In 2017, she was nominated for “Best Actress” by the Irish Film & Television Academy for Conor McDermottroe’s Halal Daddy, opposite Colm Meaney and Art Malik.
She recently starred in End of Sentence for director Elfar Adelsteins opposite John Hawkes and Logan Lerman, and A Good Woman Is Hard to Find for director Abner Pastoll. Both films are currently in post-production.
Previously, Bolger starred in the AMC original series Into the Badlands from producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. Additionally, she co-starred in Angelo Pizzo’s biographical drama My All American, opposite Aaron Eckhart and Finn Wittrock in 2015. This followed her leading performance in Michael Thelin’s independent feature Emelie, which made its debut at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival; and Relativity’s thriller The Lazarus Effect alongside Olivia Wilde, Evan Peters and Mark Duplass.
Bolger first made her memorable and award-winning debut at the age of 11 in Jim Sheridan’s In America for Fox Searchlight. Since then, Bolger has top-lined Mark Water and Paramount’s The Spiderwick Chronicles, Mary Harron and IFC’s The Moth Diaries and Max Mayer’s As Cool As I Am, opposite James Marsden and Claire Danes. In television, Bolger played pivotal roles such as "Princess 'Bloody' Mary" in Showtime’s Golden Globe®-nominated and IFTA winning The Tudors and as the Sleeping Beauty “Aurora” in ABC’s Once Upon a Time.
