Sara Ruta was born in 1994 in the small Icelandic town of Sauðárkrókur. From a young age she has had a passion for performing and making people laugh and so took part in every school play she could. Sara moved to the capital of Iceland, Reykjavík, at the age of 16 to study acting at Kvikmyndaskóli Íslands the Icelandic Film School. After graduating with a diploma Kvikmyndaskóli Íslands, she started working professionally as a radio host at KissFm Iceland and as an actress for various theatre companies. She performed multiple roles for a theatre group called Stúdentaleikhúsið. A play she starred in "Ekkert að óttast" for the community theatre of Hafnafjörður won "The best independent theatre in Iceland" in 2016.
Sara was working for the city of Reykjavik in a project called “street theatre” for the summer of 2018 and from this experience was exposed to much more independent work. She was given the opportunity to teach acting to children from the ages of 6-16 at Setbergskóli in Hafnafjörður, where she wrote and directed several stage performances.
Sara has starred in more than 25 short films, of which "Kalt blóð" won second best film at the film festival "Frostbiter". She is currently working on a Feature film "Member State" directed by Adam Donald and Web Series "Nothing Man" directed by Li Wallis. In order to expand her range and knowledge Sara has decided to turn back to studying and is currently in her third year of a Bachelors in Screen Acting at Catalyst Berlin.
