Golden Globe nominated actress SARAH PAULSON (Ellen) has built an impressive list of credits in film, television and on stage, challenging herself with each new role.

In early 2009, Paulson will be seen in Rob Thomas' ABC comedy "Cupid" opposite Bobby Cannavale. Paulson stars as Claire Allen, a psychiatrist who's assigned to keep tabs on Trevor Hale (Cannavale), who believes he's the titular god of love, after he's released from a mental institution. 

Paulson's Golden Globe nominated role was in Aaron Sorkin's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip", where she starred opposite Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet, Bradley Whitford, and Steven Weber. In this NBC dramedy, Paulson played Harriet Hayes, the most gifted cast member of a controversial late-night sketch comedy series, who's also in a complicated relationship with the show's executive producer.

Paulson's major television credits also include the lead role on the drama "Leap of Faith," the role of Chief Deputy District Attorney Lisa Patterson in "The D.A.,” "Deadwood," "Path to War" (opposite Alec Baldwin and Donald Sutherland), "Jack and Jill," the television movies "The Long Way Home" (opposite Jack Lemmon) and "Shaughnessy," the series "American Gothic" with Gary Cole, and the two-part special "Cracker.” 

In addition to television, Paulson is also a veteran of screen and stage. Paulson made her film debut in LEVITATION, an independent project released by Strong Pictures and directed by Scott Goldstein. Her other film credits include Mary Harron's THE NOTORIOUS BETTIE PAGE, Paramount's DOWN WITH LOVE (with Renee Zellweger, Ewan McGregor and David Hyde Pierce), WHAT WOMEN WANT (opposite Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt), THE OTHER SISTER, directed by Gary Marshall (starring Diane Keaton and Juliette Lewis), SWIMMERS, directed by Doug Sadler, and DIGGERS, directed by Katherine Dieckmann.

On stage, Paulson completed a role starring opposite Alfred Molina and Annette Bening in the critically acclaimed "Cherry Orchard" for the Mark Taper Forum playing Varya. She has appeared on Broadway as Laura Wingfield in the revival of Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie," alongside Jessica Lange as well as Wendy Wasserstein's Tony Award-winning, "The Sisters Rosensweig" at the Barrymore Theatre. Her other stage credits include Tracy Lett's off-Broadway production of "Killer Joe” (opposite Scott Glenn and Amanda Plummer) and Horton Foote's "Talking Pictures" at the Signature Theatre.
