[1] Bob McCann, Encyclopedia of African American Actresses in Film and Television (2010), page 199. Marti Parham, "Sharon Leal: String of Films Makes Actress a Familiar Face in Hollywood Hits", Jet, 25 February 2008, states her age as 34, which if correct would put her birth date likely in 1973. Her official website suggests a date of 1979. However, this date is optimistic. "Sharon Leal, Formerly of Good Company Players and Roosevelt High School, Lands Spot on Soap Opera", Fresno Bee, 10 February 1996, refers to Leal as a Roosevelt graduate who has been working theatre in Arizona and New York City for three years. This would push her birthdate at least back to 1975, as she almost certainly did not graduate high school at age 14.
