Wiki Bio Text
Although she was born in Los Angeles, Sharon grew up in Sioux City, Iowa, the only child of a widowed school administrator. From the closing curtsy of her first ballet recital she was hooked on performing. As a teenager, she hung around the local community playhouse until they offered her a role. During several high school summers she attended a student theater program at the University of Denver, and Northwestern University's prestigious Cherub Program. She majored in Speech and Theatre at Macalester College, but later transferred to the University of Iowa where she graduated with honors.
Her first real TV gig came when she was hired to co-host "The Morning Show" at the CBS affiliate in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In a short time, Sharon realized she was more at ease with scripted material than with live on-camera interviews.
Sharon shuttled back and forth between New York and Los Angeles. Adept at comedy as well as drama, she quickly found work in L.A., acting in TV series and performing in plays in local professional venues. Two of the TV pilots she did were picked up as series, but neither of them lasted long. The sitcom "Angie" showed Sharon at her stylish comedic best, and although the show wasn't renewed after 36 episodes the friendships made during that time continued through the years. Several other pilot projects, including a Hal Linden ("Barney Miller") vehicle and another starring Jim Nabors (Gomer Pyle) didn't make the cut. Two other shows in which she guest-starred, "Trauma Center" and "Snoops" have incomplete records and are not listed in her credits. Although she was working steadily in television, she kept exploring new roles in her first love, stage acting. And when an opportunity arose to re-join the Asolo Repertory Company in 1996 she happily accepted.
