The show also starred Mike Vogel as Billie’s husband Cooper, while Brad was played by Adam Demos.
Sarah wasn’t shy about voicing her criticism of the work environment on Sex/Life during an appearance on the Not skinny Not fat podcast earlier this month.
She said, “I’m not going to put it down, but I certainly didn’t have the support I got the first season from the people involved with the show.
“It became something completely different for me, and I’m not afraid to say that.
‘That’s part of what I do. I don’t always get along or agree with a filmmaker.
“I won’t always like what I have to do or say. But that’s my job, to make it believable.’
She added, “I’m never going to work for Netflix now after saying all this, but I can’t lie.”
In addition to her role in Sex/Life, Sarah was also known for appearances on the shows Person of Interest and Reverie.
