International Star You Should Know: Sarah Snook

SLIPPERY START:  Snook took a spin in Aussie sudsers (“All Saints,” “Packed to the Rafters”) before scoring a small part in controversial 2011 pic “Sleeping Beauty” and a recurring role in edgy pubcaster series “Spirited.” “You really have to work very hard to get a foot in the door here,” she says.

SUITABLE FOR STARDOM: Her big break came via her role opposite Ryan Kwanten in laffer “Not Suitable for Children,” which opened the Sydney Film Festival last year. But she says that it wasn’t a single role that got her noticed overseas. “It seems to be a cumulative effect,” she explains, adding, “I certainly am lucky to have caught the eye of one or two casting directors who have really supported my journey so far.”

ABORTED TAKEOFF: Buzz was strong earlier this year when she landed the lead role in Mark Gordon Co. pilot “Clementine” for the Alphabet web, but the drama didn’t make the cut. Still, the actress took away some positives from the experience. “Actors who have been working for years like David Strathairn and Mykelti Williamson have so much to offer; you can learn just by watching them,” she says.

BUSY FUTURE: Snook is filming a pair of Australian films, conservationist tale “Oddball” and PTSD drama “The Ravens.” But she’ll also be seen Stateside this summer in  Lionsgate’s frightener “Jessabelle.” “In the next three months, I’ll have three films coming out, so it looks like I’ve been busy,” she confides. “But that’s almost three years’ worth of work!”
