Sarah Drew Is Relishing Motherhood with Husband Peter Lanfer — Inside Her Family Life
From a young age, Sarah Drew knew that she wanted to become an actress. At five years old, she was already acting in her school plays, and by high school, she was lending her voice to Stacy Rowe on the animated series Daria.
She was part of Broadway production before she made her leap into TV when she landed her first major TV role playing Hannah Rogers on the popular WB series, Everwood. From there, she guest-starred on many popular series such as Mad Men, Glee, and Medium.
In 2009, she got her second big break when she was cast in a recurring role as Dr. April Kepner on ABC's award-winning series Grey's Anatomy. She played Kepner for nine years before moving on to CBS's pilot Cagney and Lacey and The Republic of Sarah.
Drew is most famous for her role as Kepner, and naturally devoted fans of the series ask "Is Sarah Drew married?" so here is a breakdown of Drew's love life.
