Over the years Sharon has also written and produced many stage and screen projects and worked with many creatives in the field of comedy. Her most recent performances include several web series shot in Melbourne and a period piece for the Sovereign Hill Gold film in Ballarat.
Sharon was a pleasure to work with and very much enjoyed her character performance. Took direction well and it’s always nice to work with pro-active talent who take responsibility for their work. She adopted the role well as as a ‘posh’ upper class 1850’s migrant it came naturally to her.” – Justin Weyers, Accolade Productions.
