    Additional Skills

    I am also a qualified counsellor, while counselling I gained skills such as active listening and being able to show just the right amount of empathy and excellent communication skills.

    These skills are also very valuable to an actor.

    Additional Information

    I am a professional singer and co wrote my album entitled "Sharon Benson" also cast albums including;

    "Carmen Jones" "Soul Train" "Hot Mikado" and "Boogie Nights"

    You can find my singing material on utube.

    About me

    I am a professional actress with a magnetic personality.

    I have 25 years acting experience in Musical Theatre and T.V.

    My versatility is shown through a number of roles such as the dramatic role of Carmen the comedic role of Joice Heth In Barnum and Crystal In Little Shop of Horrors and the evil Katisha in Hot Mikado.

    I am passionate and motivated about acting and regularly attend classes in The Actors Centre.

    I have a advance set of skills which allows me to communicate to an audience effectively.

    I also take direction well and my flexibility allows me to work well with other actors.
