Roseanne

Sarah Chalke

Becky Conner

Sarah Chalke was born August 27, 1976 in Canada. She made her acting debut in the made-for-TV movie City Boy in 1992. A year later, just after completing her first film, she auditioned to replace Lecy Goranson in the role of Becky on Roseanne. While cast to play the older sister of Sara Gilbert (Darlene), she's actually younger than her co-star. During her four-year run on the show -- while Goranson was studying at Vassar -- Chalke was studying on-set and graduated from high school in 1995. Chalke, best-known as the put-upon eldest daughter Becky, may have gotten her big break on Roseanne, but she truly broke out on her own in the NBC hit series Scrubs, which was the recipient of a TV Land Future Classic Award. In 2008-09, she appeared in several episodes of How I Met Your Mother as well as starring in the Lifetime miniseries Maneater.

Character Bio

Becky Conner is the apple of her father's eye, though her mother would often prefer to give her a black one. Becky is fiercely independent, smart, attractive and intuitive -- all traits that together make her one of the biggest handfuls in the Conner household.

She isn't afraid to go head to head with her mother, nor does she hesitate to wrap her father around her finger. She views little brother D.J. with mild disinterest and annoyance, only tolerating "the little perv"; the sibling rivalry between her and younger sister Darlene is far more pronounced.

Becky truly loves Mark, the outcast she met while in high school. Unfortunately, Mark's seeming dunderheadedness and appearance don't fit in with Dan and Roseanne's view of a potential son-in-law -- this pushes the young couple together faster than they might have moved on their own. Even their decision to elope is based on perceived influence, but through it all Beck loves her mom and dad very much, even taking time out of her elopement to phone home. Mark, meanwhile, loves Becky enough to try to go back to finish school.
