Sarah Compton-Harris was the daughter of Bill and Caroline Compton on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American guest starring actress Deborah Puette, Sarah makes her debut on the episode "Sparks Fly Out" in the series' first season. Appearing only in flashbacks, Sarah plays a recurring role through the series' first, fifth and seventh seasons. She was last seen on the episode "May Be the Last Time", in the series' seventh, and final, season.
Sarah is sweet, kind, caring and formal. Eloquent in nature and attentive to the matters of the family and the heart, she is a good natured mother who raised two small children on her own, without the assistance of her husband, upon his disappearance. She is lively and free-spirited, and would do anything to protect her family.
Little is known about Sarah Compton. Her first sighting came as Bill gave a speech at the Descendants of the Glorious Dead. The mayor handed him an old photo he had of Bill and his family. Later that evening he had a flashback of his life. After being turned vampire by Lorena Krasiki, she lets him return to his house and spy on his family from a distance. He sees his wife and children sitting on the porch. Lorena tells him that he can never return, and forces him to leave with her. ("Sparks Fly Out")
The next mention of Sarah was when Bill had another flashback of his previous life, returning home once more in 1868. Bill was met at the door by his distraught wife holding a shotgun. Shocked, but happy to see him, Caroline took Bill into the house where he found his son, Thomas, lying in a coffin dead from the (pox). Bill asked Caroline where Sarah was, and she told him that she had sent her to Tennessee to save her from contracting the (pox). ("It Hurts Me Too")
Bill recalls visiting Sarah in 1910, when she was dying from cancer. She was stunned to see him alive and begged him to make her into vampire, so that she would survive. ("Somebody That I Used to Know")
- Sarah's middle name is "Isabel" in "The Southern Vampire Mysteries", the series of novels in which the HBO original series True Blood is based.
