    About me

    Sharon is an intelligent, passionate and sensitive actress. After many and varied years as a professional singer both in this country and internationally, she moved to France where she was introduced to the world of theatre. She made her theatrical debut in French, in a one-woman show written especially for her.

    Creative and playful, focussed and charismatic, she brings a tasteful and considered attention to detail to her work.

    Acting experience

    Two productions with theatre company Gladystorsion,Toulouse - She Monster(an ensemble piece) and Hella(a 70 minute monologue)
