Born Sharisse Jackson, the ambitious actress enrolled in the Al Fann Theatrical Ensemble and began modeling with the reputable John Robert Powers and Barbizon agencies as a child. While both fields seemed promising, Jackson set her sights on becoming an actress and nurtured her talent while working with acting coach, Bob Feldman. By age 11, Jackson was inundated with commercial gigs and guest-starring roles for popular TV shows like "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" (ABC, 1993), My So-Called Life" (ABC, 1994), and "The Steve Harvey Show" (WB, 1996). Jackson also made an appearance on the critically acclaimed but extremely short-lived series "South Central" (1994) which cast included reigning superstar Jennifer Lopez. At 13, the motivated ingénue received the Award of Distinction from the Directors Guild of America for writing, directing, and producing a school film. With sufficient training in front of the camera, Jackson was ready to make her presence known as a cast regular on "Moesha" in 1996. Her role as the quirky and boy-crazy Niecy allowed Jackson to share her flair for comedy with young audiences everywhere, and helped jump start her career into feature films.

The twist of the fairytale marriage came when Kevin Federline's ex, Shar Jackson, revealed that she was pregnant with her and Federline's baby while Britney Spears and Federline began to date and progress the relationship at warp speed (via Facts Page). An even larger plot twist is that Jackson actually thanked Spears for stealing her man. "In a sick, twisted way the Britney thing has put my name back out there. I'm now working with my group trying to finish our album," she explained. Adding right after she had her and Federline's baby she said, "My agent, manager and everybody is waiting for me to get back out there. My doctors say I should chill out for six weeks — but I have an audition next week" (via Female First). (Source: www.thelist.com)
