As a teenager she returned to Manhattan and, using variations of her name, such as Jane Adrian and Jane Sterling, began her artistic career acting on Broadway in the play Bachelor Born. Later on, she worked on important pieces such as Panama Hattie, Over 21 and Present Laughter, and in 1947 she made her film debut with the film Tycoon, under the stage name of Jane Adrian. Ruth Gordon insisted that she change her name, finally deciding to call herself Jan Sterling. One of the most outstanding roles of Sterling was the one he did in Belinda (1948). Alternating his film performances with television, Sterling took part in several television series in the 1950s while working on films such as Caged (1950), Mystery Street (1950), The Mating Season (1951), Ace in the Hole ( 1951), Flesh and Fury (1952), The Human Jungle (1954), and Female on the Beach (1955).

Often chosen to play tough and determined characters, she played a much more comprehensive role in the movie Sky Full of Moon (1952). In 1950 it was Ruth in the ABC western series The Marshal of Gunsight Pass, played along with Russell Hayden, Eddie Dean, and Roscoe Ates.

That same year she traveled to England to play the role of Julia in the first filmed version of the novel by George Orwell 1984, despite being pregnant at that time.

In the following years Sterling acted regularly at the movies, in films such as Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, Kathy O, and The Female Animal.

In 1963 she was guest artist, with the role of Nurse Murdoch, in the episode “Millions of Faces” of the medical drama of the ABC Breaking Point. In 1967 she and Tisha Sterling worked on the episode “Eleven Miles to Eden”, which belongs to the western production of NBC The Road West, starring Barry Sullivan.

At the end of 1968 Sterling began acting as ‘Miss Foss’ on the CBS television series The Guiding Light. In 1969 he retired from film, focusing his acting activity in the theater, returning to television in 1979 to play Lou Henry Hoover in the miniseries Backstairs at the White House.

Her career began to decline after the death of her second husband, actor Paul Douglas, in 1959, beginning in the seventies a lasting relationship with Sam Wanamaker. Inactive for almost two decades, he appeared at the Cinecon Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2001.

The last years of Sterling’s life were marked by poor health. He suffered from diabetes, suffered a hip fracture and several strokes.
