Sara was born to Mexican parents, but she also has some Irish-American roots through her mother’s ancestors. After her parents divorced, Ramirez settled in San Diego with her mother who, encouraging her interest in music and performance, sent Sara to San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts. That turned to be the right decision – Sara started practicing stage performances, and her talent was soon noticed. When she finished high school, she was recommended for the Julliard School in New York City, widely regarded as one of the world’s best art schools, in fact ranked by QS Quacquarelli Symonds as the world’s best institution for Performing Arts in 2016. She graduated with Bachelor’s degree in Dramatics.

Sara took her first career steps in 1998 while still studying at the Julliard School, when starred in Paul Simon’s Broadway musical “The Capeman” based on the life of the Puerto Rican gangster Salvator Avalon. Despite negative reviews the production received, Ramirez was noticed and singled out for her memorable performance. Her screen debut followed in the same year in the romantic comedy “You’ve got a Mail”. She even happened to participate in the video game “UmJammer Lammy”, giving her voice to the titular character. In 2002 Sara performed in “The Vagina Monologues“, a scandalous play talking about aspects of feminine sexuality and violence against women. Three years later she won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance for her role of the Lady of the Lake in “Spamalot”, a musical based on the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, but what brought her worldwide recognition was the role of Dr. Calliope Torres in “Grey’s Anatomy“, the TV medical drama created by Shonda Rhimes. Sara was praised by television critics for her portrayal of a complex character and became very popular, which also earned her a part-Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, and the ALMA Award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Television Series, besides nine more nominations, significantly lifting her net worth.

Ramirez introduced her voice to the public after recording a cappella vocals in the song “Silent Night” for one of the “Grey’s Anatomy” episodes – she starred in the series for 10 years until 2016, which added a significant amount to her net worth, and soon afterwards she joined the cast of “Madam Secretary” (2017-2018).

To speak of her accomplishments in the music industry, back in 2011 Sara released her debut self-titled album which quickly reached No. 37 position on the Billboard 200, as well as No. 9 on the Independent Albums Billboard chart.

When it comes to her personal life, in 2012 Sara married Ryan DeBolt, a business analyst at TIMEC. Nevertheless, she came out as bisexual two years later during a speech about civil rights and discrimination at the True Colors Fund’s 40 to None Summit. Later she wrote to The Huffington Post confirming her statement.

As a civil rights activist, Sara is on the True Colors Fund’s Board of Directors, a non-profit organization dealing with homelessness among LGBT youth, as well as The Task Force, another non-profit advocacy organization working on social justice for the LGBT community. Sara also supports many other groups and LGBT centers around the world. In 2015 she was rewarded by the Human Right Campaign with an Ally For Equality Award, given in recognition of outstanding efforts of those who stand up for LGBTQ rights.
