About me:

Recently filmed in ‘The Duke’ (2020) Directed by BAFTA Winner Roger Michell (Notting Hill)

“Sharon Facinelli sparkles as the (D)evilish dark lady Rizza in Pretty Bonnets a high production Brit-Splatter-Black-Comedy. A fun watch” Francesco Crispino, Director

"Sharon’s a brilliant actor and collaborator, very giving in her process and helps take a character, performance, and the play itself to new heights. Her portrayal of ‘Ruby' in our play ’Non-Bio’ was naturalistic, relatable, moving and meaningful. I always look forward to seeing her work.” Simon Smith (Emmy Award Winner, 2019)
