Bio

Sharon Small is a Scottish actress best known for her role as statutory, rebellious side-kick Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers in the BBC television series The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, based on the novels by Elizabeth George, from 2001-2008.

Sharon plays proud fairy queen Titania in Peter Bowker's updating of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Whilst the title is Glaswegian slang for a head butt, Sharon's role in romantic drama, Glasgow Kiss, was far less severe. The 2000 production saw her play Cara Rossi, the hotshot businesswoman assigned to reinvent a failing newspaper.

From Scotland to Cyprus and then the Algarve, Sharon spent 1998 sunning it up as Carol Simpson in the series Sunburn, which followed the lives and loves of holiday reps.

Sharon has guested in several other hit dramas. She played Boo Wibberly in a 2003 episode of Cutting It. Other credits include The Bill and Hamish Macbeth (1997), Doctor Finlay (1996), and Taggart (1994).

She appears in the 2005 film Dear Frankie, the story of a young single mum trying to protect her deaf son from the truth about his errant father.

Sharon appeared alongside Hugh Grant in the film About A Boy. She played Grant's ex-girlfriend, Christine, who convinces him that he will only find fulfillment with a family.

A woman of many talents, Sharon is also a highly skilled soprano, recorder player, and swimmer.

Sharon's stage credits include the West End production of When Harry Met Sally alongside Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Alyson Hannigan. Sharon played Carrie Fisher's role as Sally's witty, best friend Marie.

She was born in Glasgow, Scotland, but now lives in London.
