Sasha Czack Bio/Wiki/Age
Sasha Czack, also known as Stitch, was born Alexandra Jane Czack. She was born on July 17, 1950, in Chester, Pennsylvania, the daughter of American parents. She belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group and has American citizenship. Since her childhood, she has always tended towards acting. She attended college in Chester and transferred to St. John’s Senior High School for her secondary education. Sasha graduated from the University of Notre Dame du Lac, United States, with a bachelor’s degree in media studies. Further information about her early life is unfortunately not available.
Sasha Czack Career
In terms of her career, Sasha Czack has taken a good path in her active years. Armed with a degree in media studies after graduating from university, Sasha Czack stormed the acting industry in search of acting jobs, film roles in film and television. She began her acting career when she starred in the American soap opera “Love of Life” by Roy Winsor in 1951, which was broadcast on the CBS network from 24 September 1951 to 1 February 1980.
This role gave her the opportunity to be selected by Frank Perry for the lead role in the American drama film “Play It As It Lays” of 1972, but her then-fiancé, Sylvester Stallone, denied her this opportunity and insisted that she stay behind and assist in the film project he was working on at the time.
Sasha was (still) the lead photographer in her husband Stallone’s 1976 American sports drama film “Rocky”, which won three Oscars. After her marriage to Sylvester Stallone on December 28, 1974, she was dragged into the limelight, who had become famous in Hollywood with roles in “No Place to Hide” (1970), “The Lords of Flatbush” (1974), and others.
The couple moved to California after their wedding and were blessed with their first son, Sage Moonblood, on May 5, 1976. Their second son, Seargeoh, was born in 1979 and was diagnosed with autism three years later. This stopped the growth of her career as she retired from the industry as a photographer and became actively involved in the Autistic Foundation. Her relationship was also strained by her second son’s diagnosis of autism, and after about 11 years of marriage and raising two sons together, the couple divorced on February 14, 1985.
By this time, Sylvester Stallone was worth over $250 million, thanks to his burgeoning popularity and superstar status in the industry. As a result, the divorce shocked the world in terms of the record divorce settlement, as it resulted in a $12 million payout to Sasha, the highest divorce settlement recorded at the time.
Sasha resumed her career in 1996 when she wrote and directed the short film “Long Lost Love” and in 2006 when she starred as Lily in the American short film drama “Vic” directed by her first son Sage, which was released on January 1, 2006. In this film, Sage made his directing debut. She also picked up her camera after years of working for her son’s film where she worked as a photographer.
Sasha Czack is now retired and has focused on caring for her son and other efforts in her life. She is an activist and member of the Autism Foundation, where she helps people who suffer from this disease. Her contributions in the fields of acting and photography have not been forgotten and it is hoped that she will soon return to the industry.
Sasha Czack Married Life/Husband
Sasha Czack was married on two separate occasions and was divorced. She was previously married to Sylvester Stallone (1974 – 1985) and then to Richard Ash (1997 – 1999). The first marriage came on December 28, 1974, when she and Sylvester Stallone, who was not yet that famous and had only a few movies as an actor, tied the knots. They were married for 11 years and had two sons – Sage and Seargeoh Stallone. However, their marriage could not cope with the stress that came with the diagnosis of their second son for autism at a very tender age (3 years old). After this discovery, the marriage broke up immediately and never recovered. They were divorced in 1985.
Sasha was remarried for the second time in 1997. She married Richard Ash after they had been together for a year before they finally decided to “jump the broom”. But the marriage also suffered the same fate as the first one and did not last long before they were divorced in 1999. From her second marriage with Rich, Sasha has no children. At the moment Sasha is single and is still content to care for and raise her younger son, Seargeoh.
Sasha Czack Family
Sasha Czack and Sylvester Stallone had two sons together, Sage Moonblood Stallone (born 1976) and Seargeoh Stallone (born 1979). Sage Stallone was an American actor, film producer/director, and distributor and was also the eldest son of the family.
Sage was found dead in his home in 2012 because he suffered from heart disease, as claimed by some sources, while other sources claimed he died from a suspected drug overdose, as bottles of pills were found scattered throughout his room. He died at the age of 36.
Their second son, Seargeoh Stallone, is a fine young man, but he was diagnosed with autism since he was three years old. This put a strain on the family and led to Sylvester and Sasha’s divorce in 1985, which was the most expensive divorce in the 1980s as it cost Sylvester Stallone a whopping $12 million. Sasha married Richard Ash in 1997 but was divorced two years later. The date of their divorce is unknown.
