Sharon Case Bio

(Sharon, Y&R)


the 411

BIRTHDATE: February 9
YEARS ON SHOW: 1994-present
MARITAL STATUS: divorced from Sandy Corzine in November 2009 (they had married April 30, 2007)

They say the third time's the charm, a cliché that has worked out well for Sharon Case. After short stints on GENERAL HOSPITAL, AS THE WORLD TURNS and VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, Case was cast as the third Sharon Collins Newman, a role she's held since 1994.

A Detroit native, Case focused on ballet and jazz in her childhood. While still in grammar school, her family moved to Los Angeles, where the aspiring dancer was discovered at a local modeling event. She was offered a job in Japan at the age of 17 and spent five months working there before returning to L.A., where she took acting lessons. In 1989, she landed the recast role of Dawn Winthrop, Monica's lost daughter on GH, but was let go after a year. She then guest-starred on several prime-time series, including CHEERS; BEVERLY HILLS, 90210; PARKER LEWIS CAN'T LOSE and SILK STALKINGS. Not long after, she moved to New York and took the short-lived role of Debbie Simon on ATWT.
