Best wishes to Sharon Case, who celebrates her 45th birthday today!
The actress got her start as a model, before landing the role of Dawn Winthrop on GENERAL HOSPITAL in 1989. After a few guest appearances in primetime, Case returned to soaps in 1993 as Debbie Simon on AS THE WORLD TURNS.
But it was when she joined THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Sharon Collins that Case became a daytime superstar. Some viewers might be surprised to learn that she was actually the third actress to play the role, following extremely brief stints from Monica Potter and Heidi Mark.
Case’s chemistry with Joshua Morrow’s Nick and Michael Muhney’s Adam created two popular supercouples on the show with rabid fan bases. (Sharon’s brief dalliance with former father-in-law Victor was decidedly less popular!)
A Daytime Emmy winner for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1999, Case is still giving her all as Sharon on Y&R. To celebrate her birthday, take a walk down Memory Lane in our gallery of classic moments from her real life — and her “reel” life!
