American actress Sharon Farrell first began making TV appearance in the early '60s. Farrell began studying dance at age seven, and before she was out of her teens had racked up a great many appearances with the American Ballet Company. Her musical comedy debut occurred at age 17 with a Denver production of Oklahoma. Moving to New York, Farrell immediately got a job with a children's theatre--which just as immediately folded. Modelling work followed, then several years as a guest actress on a variety of top network programs, among them Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Alfred Hitchcock Hour and The Wild Wild West. Movie assignments included Marlowe (1969) and The Reivers (1969); despite several years' experience, she was voted "most promising newcomer" for the latter film. Farrell's career was tragically interrupted when her heart stopped beating for four minutes during childbirth. She incurred brain damage, and was virtually unable to read, write, or memorize. After extensive sessions of re-learning, Sharon returned to acting in the early '70s, her work load increasing as her recovery progressed. By the '90s, Farrell was seen as a regular on two series: The Young and the Restless and Matlock. Sharon Farrell's second husband was writer Dale Trevillon, whom she met on the set of the Mississippi-filmed The Premonition (1976).
