Sarah Christine Roemer (born August 28, 1984) is an American actress and model. One of her best-known roles was the lead in Disturbia, but she has also starred in a number of films including Asylum, Hachi: A Dog’s Tale, Fired Up!, Waking Madison, and The Con Artist, as well as the television series The Event and Chosen.
Roemer was born in San Diego. When she was 15 she was recruited by a modeling agency while at a 7-Eleven drinking coffee. She went into modeling, but noted that she went into acting when an agent also asked her at a coffee shop in 2005.
Her first part was in an indie film called Wristcutters: A Love Story. In the 2006 horror film The Grudge 2, in which she portrays Lacey Kimble, a high school student and young cheerleader. Released on October 13, 2006, to negative reviews, the film was a box office success.
In 2007, Roemer starred alongside Shia LaBeouf, Carrie-Anne Moss and David Morse in the Paramount Pictures thriller film Disturbia. She portrayed Ashley Carlson, a love interest and neighbor of LaBeouf’s character. Filming took place from January 6, 2006, to April 28, 2006, with a budget of $20 million. The film was released on April 13, 2007, to a positive critical reception and debuting at #1 in its first week at the box office. She also starred alongside Dakota Fanning, Kristen Stewart and Virginia Madsen in the Kate Hudson–directed short film “Cutlass“.
In 2008, she starred alongside Travis Van Winkle and Ellen Hollman in Asylum. Directed by David Ellis, who also directed Final Destination 2, the film was released straight-to-DVD on July 15, 2008. A year later, Roemer appeared in the 2009 teen comedy film Fired Up. The film was released on February 20 to mostly negative reviews, and failed to cover its million budget. That same year, Roemer portrayed Andy Wilson, the daughter of Richard Gere‘s character Parker Wilson, in the American drama film Hachi: A Dog’s Tale. An American adaptation of the 1987 Japanese film Hachikō Monogatari, the film opened to positive critical reception and enjoyed worldwide box office success. In 2009, she also starred in the independent film Falling Up, which was released to mixed reviews and released straight-to-DVD. Roemer appeared in the music video for “Come Back To Me” by American Idol contestant David Cook.
In 2010, Roemer starred in the independent drama/thriller Locked In, portraying Emma Sawyer. The film, which co-starred Eliza Dushku, was released straight-to-DVD, but was released around the festival circuit. She also served as an associate producer in the film. Roemer portrayed central character Madison Walker in the independent drama Waking Madison, which was released straight-to-DVD on July 12, 2011. She also appeared as Kristen in the 2010 independent romantic comedy The Con Artist, with Donald Sutherland and Rebecca Romijn co-starring.
Later that year, Roemer starred in the NBC drama series The Event, in which she portrayed Leila Buchanan, the kidnapped girlfriend of the series protagonist Sean Walker (Jason Ritter). The series aired for one season before its cancellation on May 13, 2011.
