Vancouver / Los Angeles
Natalie Sharp is a Canadian actress, singer and songwriter from Vancouver, BC.
Natalie started training at the age of six with vocal performance coach Monique Creber. At her first lesson, she was so shy that she burst into tears when asked to sing. She has come a long way since then and is now an accomplished vocalist who is comfortable in a wide range of styles including pop, rock, jazz, R&B and country. Her voice can be heard on a number of studio albums, as well as on a series of audio books produced by MeySen Academy in Japan. She picked up the guitar along the way and that inspired her to start writing songs.
Natalie has also accumulated considerable experience in the theatre. Highlights include her portrayal of "Sandy" in Grease, the obnoxious stepsister "Joy" in Cinderella, "Jafar" in Aladdin, "Louisa" in The Sound of Music, "March Hare" in Alice in Wonderland and "Juror #8" in 12 Angry Men. In Los Angeles, she recently played the lead role of "Ralph" in an all-girl version of the classic survival tale, Lord of The Flies.
Natalie began working in TV guest starring in the 200th episode “Fan Fiction” for CW's cult hit series, Supernatural. Other television credits include Motive, You Me Her, and Loudermilk. During sophomore year of college, she booked her first major feature Miracle Season, starring along side Academy award winners, Helen Hunt and William Hurt, directed by Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer). She played the competitive, and charming, jock-ish “Mack” with stellar volleyball skills. As a fan favourite, she has inspired girls around the world to stay strong when times are tough, and keep playing. Natalie's varsity talents helped her score the sports drama centered on a high school volleyball team. It had a North American theatrical release and can now be found on demand.
During her junior year of college, she went on to land her first series regular, in the musical comedy show, Hit The Road, for DirecTV. She played the role of Ria; daughter to Jason Alexander’s (Seinfeld) character, and the lead singer of the series. Not only was she able to showcase her comedic background, but also tear up the stage; something she has been trained to do since day one.
Post college, she quickly got two more movies under her belt. Hallmark’s A Godwink Christmas, as well as Lifetime’s Family Pictures where she worked very closely to Elisabeth Rohm (Joy, American Hustle), playing her daughter in a supporting lead role.
Natalie began dancing when she was just two years old and has studied jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary and hip-hop. She is also a competitive athlete and enjoys volleyball, skiing, badminton, tennis, basketball, running, surfing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, wake-boarding, wake-surfing and her new favourites, rock climbing and bouldering.
Currently Natalie is working with her director brother, Alexander Sharp, developing screenplays in Vancouver BC. Natalie trains at Anthony Meindl's Acting Workshop in both Los Angeles, and Vancouver. She graduated spring 2018 with a BA in drama as well as a business degree at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA.
