Saskia Post was born in Martinez, California in 1961. Her Dutch parents moved between America and Japan, before settling in Australia in 1975. At high school she studied acting and singing and after completing high school she spent a year attending acting workshops and dance classes in Sydney. Saskia then commenced a degree course in drama and arts at the University of New South Wales but gave it up after twelve months to attend a full-time course at The Drama Studio in 1981. Shortly after completing the course she obtained her first television role as Julianna Sleven, a Dutch refugee, in The Sullivans, an Australian drama television series about an average middle-class Melbourne family and the effect World War II had on their lives. Post moved to Melbourne and worked on the series for twelve months before leaving in 1984 to take part in the John Duigan film, One Night Stand, where she played Eva, a Czech-born bank teller.
In 1985, Post appeared in the AFI Award winning film Bliss, as Honey Barbara's daughter. This was followed in 1986 with a feature role in the Richard Lowenstein film Dogs in Space, a story about a group of young musicians and music fans sharing a house in the inner Melbourne suburb of Richmond. In the film Post played the role of Anna, the girlfriend of Sam (Michael Hutchence).
She has also appeared in numerous stage productions in Melbourne and Sydney including "Hating Alison Ashley", "Salome", Endgrain, Train to Transcience, Could I Have this Dance?, In Angel Gear, Figures in Glass, Skin and Vincent in Brixton.
