Model-turned-actress Sarah Dumont proves she’s more than well-equipped to be the leading lady as she plays a smokin’ hot but kick-ass cocktail waitress in Universal Pictures’ R-16 Without Cuts horror-comedy “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.”
In the film, three scouts and lifelong friends (Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joseph Morgan) join forces with one badass cocktail waitress (Dumont) to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.
“`Scouts’ was definitely one thing I loved doing,” shares Dumont. “I love action, and doing all those stunts. I’m a tomboy so watching s–t explode was always awesome for me. Being on a set with comedy is the best too because you’re always laughing and cracking jokes and it’s just always good vibes.”
Sarah portrays Denise, a high school dropout who works as a cocktail waitress at a strip club. She’s a ‘no questions’ kinda gal, with a penchant for leading the charge and enjoying the thrill of a little zombie ‘killin. “It’s really nice when I first read the script to see the female character as strong and independent and not the damsel in distress.”
Sarah Dumont is an actress and model that got her acting start in the pilot for “Melrose Place” in 2009. After moving out to Los Angeles in January of 2012 she immediately booked a spot on “CSI.”
She has also be seen alongside Joseph Gordon Levitt in his directorial debut “Don Jon,” as well as the lead in the independent feature “Acid Girls” opposite Clara Paget (“Black Sails”) and directed by Taylor Cohen. She will also be in the short film “Tblisi, My City” opposite Ron Perlman.
