Sharon Bollum
Producer

Sharon Bollum lives in Fair Oaks CA with her husband, Mike, and their 2 pampered dogs (Harley and Stuart). She has 3 grown children and 2  adorable grandsons who light her world.  Acting was Sharon’s first passion and it colored her life from a very early age with dreams of being on stage or even becoming “a movie star” one day. Her mother impressed upon her that acting was only a “pipe dream” and convinced her to put her energies into a more practical future. As an adult she participated in Community Theater as often as her busy life could make room for it just for the joy of being on stage.  In 1995 she accepted a call to Christian ministry and decided she should leave acting behind. Though she had no regrets about her choice, letting go of a dream is always a sad affair.  To have the opportunity, all these years later, to join the cast of Perfect Cowboy is like finding the key to an old Hope Chest . The passion inside was revived in an instant.

Because Perfect Cowboy is more than a movie, Sharon’s passion for the project stirred on more than one level. Being a part of something that calls others to Love on higher ground is more than worthy of time, talent and effort. Working with his production team gave Sharon opportunities to serve and support Ken Roht; the man, artist, dreamer and gentle activist she instantly loved and admired from the moment she met him.
