The series tells the origin story of Mildred Ratched and her arrival in 1947 at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments on the human mind have begun.
The epitome of the perfect nurse on the outside, internally, a darkness begins to manifest inside Nurse Ratched, leading to the monster she becomes in the original 1962 novel by Ken Kesey.
The series also stars Cynthia Nixon, Judy Davis, Sharon Stone and Charlie Carver and they have opened up about Sarah's portrayal of the twisted nurse.
Cynthia, 54, told The Sun's TV Mag: "What we see in Sarah’s performance is somebody who has had horrific things happen to her. Somebody with less strength may not have made it.
"What her Nurse Ratched is able to do is to take these terrible traumas that happened to her, compartmentalize them and keep moving forward.
"So she can be ruthless, but she can also be shy and fragile. She can be incredibly sexually aggressive, or she can be very frightened when someone just touches her hand.
"I think that's what we do if we want to survive."
Meanwhile Sharon, 62, spoke about Sarah's immense talent and how her star is shining at the right time for female actors on screen.
She said: "I have always thought that she was really something. Her work is amazing and she also produced this show.
"She's so on time for an era where women are actually allowed to do something.
"In my era, we were given a lot of false things in our contract, approvals of this person, approvals of your directors, approvals of this or that, but they weren't real.
"It was what they call a vanity deal. You didn't have anything. Sarah is a young woman coming into the full flesh of her stardom and Ryan is the kind of producer who is actually respecting her deal.
"I admire and respect her, and we've become great friends. I'm just honored and thrilled to be her friend and delighted to work for her and with her.
"I am so thrilled that she's amazing at a time where there's a place for her to be that."
Ratched is released on Netflix on September 18. TV Mag is free every Saturday, only in The Sun.
