Sara Botsford - Actress Born 8 April 1951, in Kirkland Lake, Ontario

She has been married once, to American actor James Hurdle. She has three children, and is also romantically linked to her E.N.G co-star, Art Hindle.

Her oldest child, Jonathan Scarfe is the son of Canadian actor Alan Scarfe. An upcoming TV movie on CTV, Burn: The Robert Wraight Story began production in October of 2002, starring the two Scarfes and Botsford.

Living in northcentral Washington, had the benefit of including CBC in the cable television lineup. Beginning in 1989, this connection exposed me to Sara Botsford, in the Alliance/CTV program E.N.G

Redheaded, fair skinned, long-legged with just the proper amount of attitude, and that soft Canadian accent, I was hook-line-sinkered. I watched every episode of E.N.G on CBC. Then followed up with the syndication on Lifetime. CBS aired WIOU in an effort to clone the success of E.N.G; but Mariette Hartley's, Liz McVay was not Sara Botsford's, Ann Hildebrandt. Only 13 of the available 16 WIOU episodes were aired in contrast to 94 E.N.G espisodes over five (5) seasons.
