Given Sharp


Given is a talented actor who has had roles in a number of popular TV shows and movies, she spoke to us about her experiences on set and her goals for the future!

When did you first get into acting? I got into acting as a kid by doing community theatre in my neighbourhood. I was a shy kid and my mom thought it’d be a good idea to help get me out of my shell.

What was your first ever on-screen role? My first ever role was in the 2009 indie film Paper Heart starring Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi. Prior to that I mostly did extra work, including background work for Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.
