Early life, family, educational background

English fashion designer, actress, author, and producer Sadie Liza Vaughan was born on 19 June 1965, in Islington, London, England, to actress Mary Davidson and David Vaughan, a psychedelic artist who worked for The Beatles.

When she spoke to the Sunday Times, she said her childhood was a ‘chaotic but positive experience.’ She was born in Islington, but after her parents’ split, she spent the majority of her childhood in Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire. David and Mary had multiple relationships between the two of them, which resulted in Sadie having a lot of siblings. She is the half-sister of fellow actresses Jade Davidson and Holly Davidson; brothers Tobias Vaughan and Gabriel Jupiter; primary school teacher Jessi Frost and a sister, Sunshine Purple Tara Velvet.

When she was three-years-old, she starred in a Jelly Tots ad, and when five-years-old appeared with the comic double act, Morecambe and Wise. She won a scholarship to attend the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, but after suffering from an early eating disorder, she left the school when she was 13 and gave up acting. She then attended Hampstead School.

Building on her foundation from studying acting at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, she attended the Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre when she was 19. After graduating in 1984, she escaped her parents by leaving home, and that year appeared in “Mumbo Jumbo” at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, a play directed by Nicholas Hytner.


Sadie’s debut film role was in 1987 in “Empire State.” In 1989 she appeared in “Diamond Skulls,” and in 1990 played Alice in the television movie “A Ghost in Monte Carlo.”

Her best-known appearance was as vampire Lucy Westerna in 1992’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” which was produced by Francis Ford Coppola.

However, she became noted for appearing in music videos, including “Not Over Yet ’99” by Planet Perfecto featuring Grace, “Common People” by Pulp, and several Spandau Ballet videos. It was at the Spandau Ballet productions that she met Gary Kemp, her first husband. In 1990, they appeared in the film “The Krays” together, then appeared in two other films as well, including 1994’s “Magic Hunter” wherein they had to perform a love scene together, although they were separated at the time in real life.

Sadie Frost

In 1994 she was cast as Jo, the lead role in Paul W.S. Anderson’s directorial debut “Shopping”, acting opposite Jude Law. After marrying Jude and giving birth to their three children, she took fewer acting roles, and turned her focus to co-founding a production company and producing films. In 1997 she founded the production company Natural Nylon with several other actors, including Jude Law, Jonny Lee Miller, and Ewan McGregor. In 1999 the company produced “eXistenZ,” a science-fiction-horror film, and in 2000 created “Nora.” The production company no longer exists.

In 1999 she played Laura Cheveley in “An Ideal Husband”, and the Governess in “Presence of Mind.” In 2000 she played Sadie in “Love, Honor, and Obey,” and the following year appeared in “Uprising” as Zivia Lubetkin.

Sadie has appeared in several television series too, including “Casualty” in 1988, “Press Gang”” in 1989, and “Ruth Rendell Mysteries” in 1999.

In 2004 she co-produced “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow,” starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

Along with her friend, Jemima French, in 1999 Sadie co-founded the fashion label Frost French. The label began with only lingerie, and then grew into also producing clothing collections. In 2004, Frost French won Elle’s Designers of the Year Award. Sadie and Jemima appeared on “Project Runway” as guest judges. In 2011 the label closed due to issues regarding merchandise supply and investments.

In 2004 she wrote and produced “What Sadie Did Next,” a short series for E4. In 2005 she appeared in BBC 2’s “Eating with… Sadie Frost.”

For the Homes of Hope project in March 2006, she flew to South Africa to part-fund an orphanage.

She posed naked in September 2006 for Canadian photographer Bryan Adams. The photographs were a PETA anti-fur advert, and came out at the same time as London Fashion Week. She was 41 at the time.

She made her West End debut in 2009 in Zoë Lewis’ play, “Touched For the Very First Time”; the play was produced by Imogen Lloyd Webber, directed by Douglas Rintoul, and was a one-woman show.

In January 2010, she co-starred alongside Carl Barat in the play “Fool for Love” at the Riverside Studios theater.

In 2012 Sadie co-founded Blonde to Black Pictures, another production company with Emma Comley, a long-term friend. Sadie shared with the Guardian, ‘Our entire vision was supposed to cultivate new talent, provide individuals chances … take risks and to do a lot of it on our own.’ Their first feature movie was “Buttercup Bill” in 2014.

Personal life

Sadie met songwriter and guitarist Gary Kemp of the British band, Spandau Ballet, in 1981 while dancing in one of their music videos. She was 16 at the time, so they fell out of contact until they were both 21. They began dating soon after reuniting, and married on 7 May 1988, shortly before her 23rd birthday. On 20 September 1990, their son, Finlay Munro Kemp, was born, but Sadie and Gary divorced on 19 August 1995.

While working on the film “Shopping,” she met fellow actor Jude Law on set.

On 2 September 1997 they married, and had three children together – son Rafferty born on 6 October 1996, daughter Iris Tallulah on 25 October 2000, and another son, Rudy Indiana Otis Law born on 10 September 2002, but Sadie and Jude divorced on 29 October 2003. She declared Kate Moss as Iris’ godmother and BBC Radio 1 DJ, Nick Grimshaw as her godfather. Their older son was named among GQ’s best dressed British guys.

In 2010 Sadie wrote and published “Crazy Days,” an autobiography. Jude hired a leading firm of solicitors, Atkins Thomson, to demand that all mention of their marriage would be removed from the book, a document consisting of 100 pages. Additionally, he objected to the publication of photographs of their children and any minor domestic details. The case was settled at the High Court.

Hobbies, favorite things, and interesting facts

Sadie is a vegetarian.

She is the godmother of Lila Grace Moss, Kate Moss’ daughter.

In 1994 she turned down the role of Elizabeth in “Frankenstein” as she did not want to be typecast, as in 1992 she portrayed a similar role in “Bram Stoker’s Dracula.”

The director of “Mary Reilly,” Stephen Frears, chose Sadie to play the title role in 1996, but the studio wanted Julia Roberts.

In 1995, Michael Caton-Jones chose her to play Mary in the film, “Rob Roy.” However, the producers disagreed with the director’s choice and encouraged him to cast a more famous actress; Jessica Lange landed the role.


She has hazel eyes and dark brown hair. She is 5ft 3ins (1.6m) tall, weighs around 128lbs (58kgs), and her vital statistics are 36-28-34.

Net worth and salary

Sadie’s net worth has been estimated at around $4 million, as of mid-2020.

Who is Jude Law?

English actor David Jude Heyworth Law was born on 29 December 1972 in London, where he was raised.

He began acting in theatre before appearing in small roles in feature films. In 1999 his performance in Anthony Minghella’s “The Talented Mr. Ripley” gained recognition, and for which he won a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, and was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award. In 2001 he appeared in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I. Artificial Intelligence” and “Enemy at the Gates,” for both of which he received commercial and critical acclaim. He earned BAFTA, Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for his role in the 2003 war film “Cold Mountain.”

Some of his films have not received the same critical and commercial success, such as the 2004 films “Alfie” and “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow”, but the same year he also starred in “Closer” as the romantic lead, which was well-received, much like his appearance in “The Holiday” in 2006.

In 2009 he played Dr. Watson in “Sherlock Holmes” alongside Robert Downey Jr., who played the title character, roles they reprised in the 2011 sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.” That year, he also appeared in supporting roles in two other films, “Hugo” and “Contagion,” both receiving positive reviews.

He starred in the 2017 film “The Young Pope,” and in 2018 played Albus Dumbledore in “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.” The following year he played Yon-Rogg in “Captain Marvel,” which is his highest-grossing film to date.

Jude has appeared on stage and has appeared in several Broadway and West End productions, including “Hamlet,” “Les Parents Terribles” and “Anna Christie.”

He has five children with three different women. Sadie and Jude have three children together, his daughter with American model Samantha Burke was born in September 2009, and his daughter with Catherine Harding was born in 2015. On 1 May 2019, he married Phillipa Coan.

He has received numerous awards, including a BAFTA Film Award as well as nominations for two Tony Awards, two Academy Awards, three Laurence Olivier Awards, and four Golden Globe Awards. In 2007 he was recognized for his contribution to World Cinema Arts and was thereafter named a knight of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government.

His net worth is estimated at over $45 million, as of mid-2020.

1I'm playing a very strong character, it's the story of the woman Polish Jews out of the Warsaw ghetto. I've just begun my weapons training and the SAS type training that's getting me fit.
2I've concentrated for a long time on English films because I've got two kids but my oldest son is 11 and I think I'm going to be away for about four months of year now.
3I'm always the girl at the party who, within five minutes, has taken my heels off, hitched up my dress in my knickers, and probably spilt drink down my cleavage.
4When I had my first boy it all started and that male energy seemed to keep me awake but since my daughter, who's incredibly serene, I can't seem to stop sleeping because she's asleep all the time. It's a pattern.
5I don't allow meat in my house or in my oven. My whole family is vegetarian - and although I've given my kids the choice to order meat at a restaurant when they reach five, they're not interested.
6I was a very defiant child, and my father encouraged that. He wanted me to be as wild and creative as possible and didn't believe in disciplining children.
7I was the eldest daughter with these four beautiful younger sisters with ringlets and pretty faces, and I used to dress them up in Victorian clothes and take them out for the day and pretend they were mine.
8My kids inspire me to be the person I am today - without them I wouldn't be who I am today.
9My parents are from Manchester but I was brought up in London, Camden Town.
10My style is scruffy with a touch of androgyny.
11There are people out there who want me to fail, who want Jude to fail, who want our relationship to fail.
12When you love someone so much that you are in pain when you are apart it ends up being destructive. I never want to be in that place again.
13If I am in London I like a quick get away to The Olde Bell in Hurley... It's nearby and no stress - great food and beautiful walks.
14If the kids did want to get into showbiz then so be it, but I would never project anything on to my children.
15Just to be remembered is good enough for me. Lots of people are forgotten.
16My childhood was colorfully anarchic and punctuated by a lot of change.
17My father was a painter and an anarchist, always getting in trouble for his performance art.
18I want to get up at 6 A.M. and go swimming and do 30 lengths.
19I was fiercely independent and ambitious from a very young age.
20I'm the kind of person who'll have a few drinks and fall asleep at 11.
21I've had four children and I've done a good job and I'm happy in life.
22I've never got into debt and I've always been in control of my taxes and VAT, but having four children costs a lot. They are my weakness.
23From 16 years old, I wanted to have a baby, that's all I wanted.
24Having money has given me a certain freedom, but being in the public eye has taken away a lot.
25I haven't done an international film for a long time.
26I love babies. I love being pregnant and I loved giving birth.
27I really enjoy making dinner for my kids and my husband - chopping ginger and marinating the tofu.
28I find a lot of young filmmakers make too much of an effort to be trendy and they can be pretentious.
29I really fought to make my character not a stereotype. I play a soap star with dyed blonde hair.
30I've never worn fur, either. I'm a naturally squeamish person, and fur smells like dead animal to me.
31At home it's all Batman and Star Wars and they do gang up on me. Sometimes I don't want to dress up as Darth Vader or play train sets, so I'll go out for a drink with the girls.
32By 17, I was modeling and had bought myself a flat. I've always tried to be self-sufficient.
33It is so important that you don't stay with someone just for the children and for the wrong reasons.
34I'm a strong woman.
35I always wear flat shoes, because I can't walk in anything else.
36I never thought I'd spend all my life with Gary. I suppose I was quite cynical about marriage. But with Jude, I knew right from the beginning: there was an electricity I'd never felt before. It was so easy, we talked for hours. It was a relief, really.
37I don't like it when people don't act on their words.
