Adorable 14-year-old Sahara Garey was born in Houston, Texas on June 5, 1991. She discovered her passion for acting at the very early age of nine when while watching a Juicy Juice commercial. She turned to her mom and said that she wanted to be on TV like the kids she was watching.
Sahara was already heavily into the pageant circuit and so her mother, who has always been supportive, told her she had to pick which one she wanted to do. Since Sahara was up for trying something new, she chose acting! The next year, her father’s job took the family to Los Angeles and in one short week, Sahara was signed to an agency. Her first job was in the kids TV pilot “The Pinky the Clown Show,” where she played a puppet who turned in to a real child who turned back into a puppet at the end. She followed that with a recurring role on the hit NBC daytime drama “Days of Our Lives,” and then with a string of guest-starring roles, which included NBC’s “American Dreams,” Disney’s “That So Raven,” and FX’s “The Shield.”
She can currently be seen in a supporting role in the Akeelah and the Bee opposite Keke Palmer, Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne. In the movie, she plays Akeelah’s best friend, Georgia.
When she is not acting, Sahara loves doing typical teenage girl stuff, which includes, talking to her friends on the phone and chatting with them on her computer and she LOVES to shop. She even enjoys window-shopping. She also likes hanging out with her little brother Canyon and with her parents, who have taught her a biggest lesson in life, which is to keep striving for her dreams.
The Garey family currently resides in Los Angeles
