Is your water safe?
Michael Sharpe is a writer, director, and actor from Charlotte, North Carolina who is making a transition to the west coast and L.A. to further his film career.
His last film that he wrote and directed is called Out of One's Misery. A dark tale with a twist, starring Pat Dortch as David, a very troubled man. Michael also has a part as Sanford, a gentleman looking for his wife and family. Mahri Shelton and Kayli Maree Tolleson play the family members.
The part of Sanford was written for another actor but, because he was unavailable, Michael stepped in to play that role and it couldn't have been a better fit. Michael used a soft spoken southern gentleman accent in the movie that, along with his attire, worked to evoke a sense of calm and tranquility that his character Sanford required.
