Sharon Acker began her career at about 19 years of age when she first worked for the CBC and National Film Board, spending the next 13 years honing her craft during those early exciting days of television when Canada produced live drama comparable to anything being produced either in England or the United States. When the Canadian Motion Picture Convention convened in 1969, the Motion Picture Exhibitors of Canada presented Sharon Acker with the very first Star of Tomorrow Award. She was 87 when she died in a retirement home in Toronto.
