Sharon Conley thinks artists have a perpetual opportunity to edify while they entertain.
Hollywood, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2013 -- Actress Sharon Conley is quickly becoming one of the more recognizable faces in film and television. Her roles in blockbusters like The Blindside, Hunger Games, Green Lantern, The Lucky One, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, as well as television roles in Teen Wolf, Homeland, Drop Dead Diva, and Sundance Channel's hit new show Rectify are making her quickly one of Hollywood's most bankable actresses.
The notoriety has its place, but Sharon feels artists should also be more socially active. To that end, Sharon is proud that an independent piece she starred in entitled, D.N.R. is being used to raise awareness and funds to help those who struggle with this condition. Sharon says, "D.N.R. is, to this day, one of my most challenging and rewarding performances. As an actress you look for roles that let you spread your wings and express great passion. D.N.R. allowed me to do that." Sharon also says, "There are a lot of people and their families who struggle with this condition.
“It is great that I can use my talents to help in any way,” she continues. “What we strive for as artists is to touch people, to impact lives. By supporting this piece, the artists and the audience can come together to make a difference."
Audiences can catch D.N.R. exclusively online at:
Viewers are encouraged to watch and share the link. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Sharon says she will continue to look for roles that stretch her as an artist while making a difference for the audience.
