Mike Shara: Actor

Mike Shara is one of Canada’s most accomplished actors with multiple seasons at the Stratford Festival and the Shaw Festival.

In this interview he covers a wide range of topics from his time at the School of Dramatic Art at the University of Windsor to working with Yannick Bisson on the CBC Television series “Murdoch Mysteries.”

Mike opens up about the struggles he faced learning Shakespeare and how he overcame his fear of being perceived as a fraud. He worked hard to improve his craft and went on to work with the acclaimed directors Chris Abraham on “Othello” and John Caird on “Love’s Labour’s Lost.”

Mike’s worst audition story is a classic and he shares great advice on how to avoid blowing the audition before you even open your mouth.
