After making various guest appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Dragnet (2003), and NUMB3RS, Callies gained a starring role on Fox’s Prison Break as Sara Tancredi.

She played the role in the first two seasons, but her character was killed off for the third season before being brought back for the final, fourth season.

According to Prison Breaks executive producer Matt Olmstead, although the writers, the network, Callies herself, and he all wanted her to stay on the show, the character was written out related to contract disputes.
