Sarah Lynne Pribis was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, on 12 August 1988, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding American nationality. She is best known for her acting career, although she is also a producer, host and a model.
Early Life and Education
There is not much known about Sarah’s parents or her early life as she doesn’t talk about it. She grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, she started playing violin when she was only five, was a member of a church choir, and then started acting in the Community Theater plays. She went to Wissahickon High School, and later moved to New York in order to continue her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, from which she got her bachelor’s degree in theatre and journalism.
Career and HQ
Sarah’s first appearance was in the second-best rated musical of all times right behind “Hair” called “Les Miserables” –a production of Victor Hugo’s famous play held at her high school in Ambler, Montgomery County, and Sarah had a main role which helped her begin performing in the musical’s Broadway production. This successful model also appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” while she was also helping Ellen with her annual “Cat Week” show. Sarah dreamed about working with Ellen but she didn’t just apply for the audition, she got the job quite unexpectedly – she was advertising “Shiny Hiney” which is a self-explanatory bath product and the commercial seemed to be a major success as it was shared all around the internet and gathered more than one million views on YouTube, which led Ellen to invite Sarah onto her show, which turned out to be an entire “Shiny Hiney” week on “Ellen”.
After “Ellen” and before HQ, Sarah appeared in numerous TV series including Bravo’s “Dirty John”, “The Bold & the Beautiful” and “Hack My Life” while also appearing in a couple of movies such as “Clinton Road” and “Inside Game”.
After that, in the summer of 2017, Sarah auditioned for the place of a host for “HQ”, and was almost immediately hired. HQ is an app and trivia game for mobile phones which was released on 26 August 2017 for iOS, and four months later for android as well. They offer free to play games on which you can win money if you can answer 12 questions of increasing difficulty.
Since these are live show games, there are numerous hosts on it, while the primary host who broadcasts from New York is Scott Rogowsky and the main host for Britain is Sharon Carpenter – some of the other hosts include Sarah, Alexandra Maurer who is in charge of the German games, and Anna Roisman, a regular host for HQ Words. The app is extremely popular as it hit a record-breaking two million players competing at the same time in February 2018. Each player has half an hour to prepare for the show while Sarah prepares her jokes about the questions and plans what to say.
She claims that it is like nothing she has ever done before, as she didn’t have a history in stand-up comedy and never wrote her own jokes. She sometimes plays the game herself when she is not working – although she is not allowed to take the prize if she wins – but admits to never be able to pass level five out of 12. She also advises people to play in groups on separate ‘phones in order to improve their chances of winning.
Sarah is also an accomplished producer, known for her “The Consultant” movie. As of early 2019, she is only working as HQ’s host and is not appearing in any TV series nor movies.
Sarah never shares anything about her love life in public, however, she once uploaded a funny short story video on her Instagram account in which she is trying to make out with Thomas Gipson, a fellow actor, when her cat stops them by starring at them. The video caused a lot of fans to believe that she was dating Thomas, which she hasn’t approved nor denied.
‘Wonderful to work with. Strong and variable looks, Great communication, on time and professional. I would suggest using her for any campaigns I’m shooting.’ – This is how one of the photographers who Sarah worked with described her on her profile on “modelmayhem” website.

‘Ellen is everything you’d hope she’d be. She’s warm, relatable, genuine … she made me feel comfortable even though I had every reason to be nervous.’
‘To me hosting is its own form of acting, blending with the reporter thing.’
‘I think they just threw me into the role. I just went in and hosted the game. At the time, it was still in Beta mode, with maybe a couple 100 players playing. It went well, and I’ve just kind of gone back ever since, the regularity of it increasing as the game gains popularity.’
