SADIE LEAH KLEIN (born 5 November 1984) is an American actress and playwright, who is primarily active in film and on the stage. [...]

Early Life
absent (in more ways than one) mom + (putting mama rose to shame) stage dad, child actress with more talent and looks than was probably good for her, seeing as she was bullied to hell and back for pulling too far ahead of the pack way too early. in some ways she's sort of like the best-case scenario for a modern-day gypsy rose lee, right down to the FUCK Y'ALL AND THIS POPSICLE STAND, I DO WHAT I WANT. but like, also neurotic as hell.

[...]

Career
altogether just a terrifying creature to behold, as she's only in her mid-30s and now just lacking the emmy in her quest for an egot. (musical theatre technically got her both the oscar and the grammy, but her one tony so far is for a straight play. because she's apparently coming for audra mcdonald.) the thing is though, her first and only venture into television so far was an emmy-nominated miniseries, so it looks like she... knows exactly HOW to gun for that elusive emmy. all shall love her and despair.
