Season Finale: Sharon Taylor
For Sharon Taylor, doing The Work has often meant kicking ass – literally. For years, the thespian and martial artist has been the prototypical action actress, kicking ass on numerous projects around town, including Stargate Atlantis where she played fan favourite Amelia Banks, and Ghost Wars, SyFy’s severely underrated horror series on which she played a mortician who tangles with Vincent D’Onofrio. But in recent months, Sharon has been challenging that action actress label, proving to audiences, casting directors, and herself that she’s just as capable as bringing the dramatic feels and laughs as she is at kicking ass. In this entertaining and sometimes freewheeling conversation with Sabrina Furminger, Sharon reflects on that “action actress” label, as well as her recent roles on the Kim Coates crime drama Bad Blood and the top-rated comedy Jann (on which she plays Jann Arden’s ex-girlfriend) and the 52 marriages proposals she’s received via DM.
