Sasha Pieterse was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and emigrated over to the United States when she was 3 years old. Pieterse grew up around show business.

At 6 years old, Sasha Pieterse got her start in television, co-starring in 2002 as "Buffy" on The Warner Bros. comedy series "Family Affair." In 2004, she appeared in "Stargate SG-1." She started to rise to fame as an actress when she played in "House M.D." as a young girl named Andie with terminal cancer.
