Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and raised in Las Vegas before moving to Los Angeles, Pieterse grew up around show business. Her parents were professional dance partners who performed all over the world, and Pieterse loved being on stage with them. She soon met with an agent who quickly signed her, and she's been busy acting and modeling ever since. At six years old, Sasha Pieterse got her start in television, co-starring as Buffy on the short-lived WB comedy series Family Affair, opposite Gary Cole. She went on to play Cole's daughter on Wanted in 2005.
Pieterse has appeared in numerous television commercials including long-running national spots for Nesquick and Firestone. She was featured on a billboard for Supercuts that appeared throughout the country, and more recently, she sang and modeled in the Macy's Passport Fashion Show, performing throughout California. On television, she has also guest starred on the Syfy series Stargate SG-1, and on the silver screen in Robert Rodriguez's The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D.
Besides acting, Pieterse loves to sing. When she is not acting or singing, she can be found horseback riding, dancing, playing the piano, and golfing with her dad. She lives in Los Angeles with her mom and dad, and her Pekinese dog named Precious, Persian cat, Pasha, and a fish named Crystal.
