“Sharon is enormously helpful when casting my films. Her advice on actor readings is always incredibly incisive – and I have benefited tremendously from her extremely valuable counsel. Sharon does it all with extraordinary passion, experience, and wisdom. Every day I work with Sharon in this process is a great day – and the effects are truly present on screen.

Watching Sharon work with actors in her classes, I feel I gain important insights on the acting process and paths to attain the truest and best performances from actors. When on set – this is of great benefit to all – the actors, me, and the film.”
