Executive summary: Dr. Reid on Scrubs

Sarah Chalke was the second actress to play Becky on Roseanne, replacing Lecy Goranson in the show's sixth season. In a strange casting quirk, Goranson returned to the role of Becky for Roseanne's eighth season, but shared the part, with Chalke and Goranson each playing Becky in alternating episodes. Goranson left again at the start of the show's final season, leaving Chalke as Becky until the end. For quick-reference Roseanne purposes, Chalke is usually referred to as "the fake Becky". She later played the cowgirl Gloria on the Canadian drama Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy, and came to moderate fame playing the neurotic Dr Elliot Reid on the long-running American hospital sitcom Scrubs.

Sarah Chalke grew up in Vancouver, Canada, and began appearing in local stage productions at the age of eight. While she was in junior high school, she reported environmental news for the Canadian series, KidZone, and she was still in high school when she started on Roseanne. Her first film role was a brief bit in Jim Varney's ninth outing as Ernest P. Worrell, Ernest Goes to School.
