Former Holby City actress who portrayed the role of Lola Griffin, has joined the cast of new BBC One thriller Informer.
Find out more about Sharon’s character, DCI Rose Asante.
An Oxbridge graduate who could’ve walked into a job at any consultancy firm, Rose instead signed up to join the Metropolitan Police. She was the only female officer of colour in her unit at a time when race riots were raging in Brixton and the National Front were getting candidates elected in local government. But Rose’s idealism and her unshakeable faith in her cause kept her going through these turbulent times.
As a DCI in London’s Counter-Terrorism Special Unit, Rose believes that the ends always justify the means. A brilliant mind, Rose can be manipulative, loving, maternal, and intimidating in equal measure. She’ll do whatever it takes to keep the good people of Britain safe.
