Beginning of early life, education and career
Growing up in Cork, Sarah didn’t think much of an acting career until her parents took her to a theater performance of “Little Red Riding Hood”. She became interested in the performing arts and with the support of her parents, she took her first acting lessons at the CADA drama school, which is known for helping to produce several international stars.

The drama school was founded by actor Joe Dowling in the late 1980s because there were no immediately accessible drama schools in the area for those who wanted to pursue the profession. After graduating in 2006, she quickly sought employment and made her television debut in “Bachelors Walk” in a small untitled role.
In 2008, Greene made her screen debut in the independent feature film “Eden”, before landing her first mainstream project in “Love and Savagery” playing the character Cathleen – the film was a Canadian collaboration and starred Allan Hawco.
