She Has The Mic

Sarah Megan Thomas is a champion for women's stories, and her latest film, "A Call To Spy" is the fantastic telling of 3 heroic women spies in WWII. In 1941 Winston Churchill enlisted women spies in the Special Operations Executive to conduct sabotage and build resistance. Women were not seen as threats, and were far less likely to be stopped at check points.  Working off this stereotype these women were dauntless in their efforts to thwart the march of the Nazi regime into France. I was absolutely riveted by the stories of Virgina Hall, Vera Atkins and Noor Inayat Khan. This is a must see film for anyone wanting to know more about the role these courageous women played in ending WWII.

Sarah Megan Thomas is an actress, producer, and writer. ​

For her latest film, “A Call to Spy,” Sarah wrote the original screenplay, produced, and plays legendary American spy Virginia Hall, alongside Stana Katic (playing Vera Atkins) and RAH dee kah Ahp tay (playing Noor Inayat Khan). The project, released by IFC Films, has won numerous awards including the Anti-Defamation League “Stand Up” Award presented at the 2020 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and the “Audience Choice” award (in record numbers) at the Whistler Film Festival. INDIEWIRE called Thomas “the standout here, with the multi-hyphenate not only taking on the film’s meatiest role as real-life spy figure Virginia Hall, but also writing and producing the feature.”​​

Sarah’s previous film was the groundbreaking “Equity,” in which she created the concept, co-wrote the story, produced, and starred. A first of its kind, “Equity” is a female driven Wall Street thriller. Sarah was honored with a Women's Image Network Award, Creative Coalition Spotlight Award, and Voice of A Woman Award for "Equity.” ​​

Sarah also starred in the romance-drama “Backwards” opposite James Van Der Beek and has appeared in various television shows including “Law and Order, SVU.” She has also starred in numerous Off-Broadway productions.​

Sarah is an athlete in her personal life, enjoying nearly all sports from basketball to yoga. She has climbed to the top of Mt. Rainer in Washington, and sea-kayaked in Alaska.​

Sarah currently resides in downtown New York City with her husband, son and daughter.
