Sara Gilbert is known as an American actress and producer. She is most famous for her role as Darlene Conner-Healy in the comedy sitcom 'Roseanne'.



Sara Gilbert was born as Sara Rebecca Abeles on January 29, 1975, in Santa Monica, California. Gilbert is part of her family's third generation in the entertainment industry. Her grandparents were Harry Crane, a TV writer most renowned for The Honeymooners, and Julia Crane, a dancer who was once named "Miss Brooklyn." Gilbert's mom, Barbara Crane, was a producer and Hollywood talent manager.

Gilbert's two older siblings, Melissa and Jonathan Gilbert, were both young actors who featured on the NBC series Little House on the Prairie during the 1980s. Sara says she chose to emulate her brother and sister’s path to acting since she was envious of the considerable number of presents they got on the set of Little House on the Prairie.


In 1981, at 6 years old, Gilbert made her TV debut in a Kool-Aid advertisement. Following a stint of acting in commercials, Gilbert handled a part in the made-for-TV motion picture Calamity Jane (1984). After four years of acting, in 1988, she got her huge break. She was given a focal role in the ABC sitcom, Roseanne. The show was about the family life of Roseanne Conner, a bitter but sarcastic woman.

Personal Life


Gilbert and her former long time partner, TV and film writer and producer Allison Adler, were a couple from 2002 until 2011. They have two children by the means of artificial insemination. They had a boy named Hank Levi Gilbert-Adler and a little girl named Sawyer Gilbert-Adler.

In 2013, Gilbert was in a relationship with Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes fame. The pair married in March 2014. In September of that year, Gilbert reported her pregnancy on her show, The Talk. The couple gave birth to a child, Rhodes Emilio Gilbert-Perry on February 28, 2015.

Sara Gilbert first openly spoke about her homosexuality in 2010, on the CBS daytime television show, The Talk, which Gilbert co-hosted with Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, and an assortment of other female superstars, “I don't think [being out] will be a problem. I don't ever really think of things as being out or in & I just think I am who I am, and when topics come up that are appropriate, I'll talk about them and share when it seems right. This is a whole new world for me.”
