Sharon, let’s go Beyond the Mic. “Apparently There Were Complaints” is a memoir filled with honesty, laughter, and sadness. You’ve been an actress since you were 26. Did you ever lose your self-identity while acting these incredible roles in your career?
Your life from department store page, selling aluminum siding to an award winning career acting was one adventure after another. Looking back, did you wonder how you survived all of it?
I read it, it was a real page turner. What was the moment, the “aha”, when you knew acting was the right path?
