Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lesley Sharp (born 1964 in Formby, Merseyside) is an English stage, film and television actress particularly well known for her wide variety of British television roles including Clocking Off, Bob & Rose and Afterlife. Adopted as the second daughter of mature Scottish parents, Sharp grew up in Formby, Merseyside. Childhood holidays were spent in Edinburgh, where "every summer it rained." Sharp started acting because, as a child, she felt "invisible" and didn't "quite fit in." She has said that her inspiration to act came from watching Dick Emery on television. Her father worked for the Inland Revenue and was not keen on her taking up acting, preferring her to follow in his footsteps by becoming a civil servant. Her adoptive mother died of cancer when Sharp was 15. The adoption was never a secret in the family, but it was only after leaving home that she met her genetic mother - a working-class woman unable to keep her because the father was a married man.show more
