Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.
My name is Sharrie Mccain. I am an actress, writer, and producer from Baltimore, MD.
New York is like a second home to me. LA and ATL are places I would love to be in for business.
I love acting because it allows me to be free and explore stories. I love producing because I can see over the projects and keep everyone safe.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I can write scripts with so many plot twists.
That helps me out when I’m auditioning because I can improv different takes while sticking to the script. That’s something I mastered.
I learn how to cry on cue once a week. I am able to adapt quickly to any role I take on. I study each set.
I bring that back when I’m a filmmaker or producing a project.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
I started doing theatre in 2004. I did it for 12 years.
Since 2013, I have only done tv and films. I got back to the theatre when the time was right.
I take the craft seriously and study the business side. I had to learn how to master the business side in order to survive in the industry.
I love what I do and have fun doing it. I’m an actress and filmmaker.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
The biggest challenge I had to face in the industry is learning to trust.
I love helping people but sometimes it’s hard to see some people for who they are. So I’m learning not to be taken advantage of.
I had to stand up for each choice I made in my career.
I follow my own path.
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
Tamala Jones, Will Smith, and Angela Bassett.
