We had the good fortune of connecting with Sharmaarke Purcell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sharmaarke, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
My shift to acting was caused by the creative freedom in the real of film. The love of growing and creating works that can reflect my personality and love for the craft. The unbiased and matter of fact commitment and pursuit of excellence in this realm was just something I gravitated to.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My focus and dedication to excellence is something that helps to push forward. This for me is a shining key that allows me to stand out from my competition and excel. My positive energy, great networking ability and no days off mentality that has me push past my limits and more.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Honestly, I’m such a low key person that i don’t really do much lol. I like hikes, I like nature spots and I like just enjoying beautiful scenery. So if anything, I’d go to parks, beautiful hike spots and just observe and chill. Hopefully the homies are cool with that lol
