Who is the actress Sharon Case? 

Sharon Case has played the character of Sharon Newman for nearly three decades now. While portraying Sharon Newman has taken up a large portion of her life, Case has had success as an actress outside of The Young and the Restless as well. Case was born on February 9, 1970, in Detroit, Michigan. She began acting on daytime soaps as a teenager. Case landed her first acting gig on the daytime soap opera General Hospital in 1989. She had a recurring role as Dawn Winthrop, the daughter of General Hospital legend Monica Quartermaine. Case also had roles on As the World TurnsBeverly Hills, 90210, and Cheers. While Case has had success outside the show, she will always be remembered best as an actress for her nearly thirty-year stint on The Young and the Restless as Sharon Newman.

Sharon Case’s character hit the fictional town of Genoa City in 1994. Case’s character was initially called Sharon Collins but quickly became Sharon Newman after tying the knot with her high school sweetheart Nicholas Newman. While Sharon and Nick’s marriage lasted for over a decade, the characters divorced on the show in 2007. However, by soap opera standards, this was a very long marriage. 

Since the character of Sharon divorced Nick, she has been married four more times. Oddly enough, each of her new husbands had some connection to Nick. Her second husband, Jack Abbott, was Nick’s former stepfather. Her third husband, Adam Newman, was Nick’s younger half-brother. Her fourth husband, Victor Newman, was Nick’s father. Her fifth husband and now ex was Dylan McAvoy, Nick’s older half-brother. While Sharon’s character hasn’t had luck in the marriage department on The Young and the Restless, Case is hoping that her on-screen daughter will have better luck.   

Should Tessa and Mariah tie the knot? 

Mariah Copeland is Sharon Newman’s daughter with Frank Barritt. Sharon had twins girls, Mariah and Cassie, as a teenager. However, one of the babies was stolen at birth, and Sharon was led to believe that she had only given birth to one child. In 2014, Sharon would learn the truth as Mariah returned to Genoa City as a grown woman. Sharon and Mariah had a rocky relationship in the early days, but now the characters are quite close and have built a strong mother-daughter relationship. 

Mariah has been in quite a few relationships herself since coming back to Genoa City. However, she has recently been in a long term relationship with her girlfriend, Tessa Porter. Fans and Sharon Case alike are rooting for the pair to get married on the show. The Young and the Restless fans might get their wish, as rumors are flying that it looks like a “Teriah” wedding will finally take place in 2020. After watching Sharon Newman battle breast cancer on the show, watching her be the mother of the bride will be a treat for The Young and the Restless fans.
