Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Oct 22, 2018

It's NYPD Blue's Sylvia Sipowicz! Yes, the woman whose provocative scenes were a major part of this groundbreaking, iconic TV series.

But wait! Sharon has also been a constant presence on television since then, in shows like:

  • Shameless
  • How to Get Away with Murder
  • The Ranch
  • Me, Myself and I
  • Queen Sugar
  • Rizzoli & Isles
  • Drop Dead Diva
  • One Tree Hill
  • Monk
  • Desperate Housewives
  • Ladies Man
  • Fired Up
  • and now! Dynasty. Yes, Dynasty. It's a new, updated version and you can see her on the October 26 episode on the CW.

You'll hear Sharon, who's also on the board of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, reflect on:

  • provocative TV
  • landing her famous gigs
  • moving from small-town to big-city life
  • her husband, parents, in-laws and friends
  • life, love and acting
  • fax machines, ticker tape and "the breakdown"



BIG THANKS to Carson Beck for recording this episode at his stellar soundBOX Studio City.
