Sharon Small - Biography
Famous for: Putting up with the airs of her aristocratic crime fighting partner the Earl of Asherton
Sharon Small's hot-cold relationship with the upper-crust detective in The Inspector Lynley Mysteries makes for riveting TV. Prior to her stint solving murders alongside a member of the English gentry, viewers would have clocked the Scottish actress living it up as a holiday rep in Sunburn and starring in romantic drama A Glasgow Kiss. One of her finest screen hours came in About A Boy, however, when as the ex of confirmed bachelor Hugh Grant she persuaded him he would only find fulfilment as a family man.
