Sarah's Candid Confessions

In an eye-opening episode of Rachel Bilson’s 'Broad Ideas' podcast, Sarah Wayne Callies, the beloved star from the hit Fox drama 'Prison Break,' got real about the highs and lows of her time on the show.

Launching a rewatch podcast titled 'Prison Breaking' with former co-star Paul Adelstein, Callies is taking fans back to the cell block, but with a twist, revealing the unvarnished truth of her experiences.

Callies didn't hold back, detailing the rampant misogyny she endured. "Being the only woman around was a double-edged sword," she admitted. The actress shared a shocking incident where a male co-star spat in her face, a story she promises to delve into in her podcast.

Callies went on to say being an actress on a predominantly male show is a double-edged sword. "I’ve had an actor on that show spit in my face, and I was like, ‘Holy s–t,’" she revealed, teasing that fans will hear more about that incident on her rewatch podcast down the line.

The revelation is just a glimpse into the challenges Callies faced, including nights spent calming her husband, Josh Winterhalt, who was ready to defend her honor.

"I would go home some nights and have to spend an hour talking my husband [Josh Winterhalt] out of going to hospitalize somebody," Callies added.

Despite the adversity, Callies found a silver lining, forming "lifelong friends" on set. She highlighted the gentlemen among her co-stars, showcasing the complexity of her 'Prison Break' journey.

Her initial hesitation to revisit the series for her podcast stemmed from a fear of spiraling into negative reflections on her past experiences. Yet, her courage to face these memories head-on has led to a powerful platform for sharing her story.

'Prison Break' may have been a tale of brotherhood and escape, but Callies's revelations paint a broader picture of resilience and solidarity. Her support for co-star Wentworth Miller's decision to step away from straight roles after coming out as gay underscores the inclusive spirit she champions.

At the time, Callies showed love for her former costar’s decision with a sweet Instagram message.

"To all the fans, know this: the cast of prison break is a queer-friendly space. we stand with – and among – our friends & family in the LGBTQ+ community with full-throated support for their rights and artistic work. all the time. always," she wrote alongside a snap of her and Miller. "And if that’s a problem for anyone, to quote a good man, ‘that’s your work.’"

'Prison Break' originally ran for four seasons on Fox from 2005 to 2009. The series later returned for a 2009 TV movie, titled The 'Final Break', as well as a nine-episode fifth season in 2017.
