Born in Arizona in 1972, Sharon Leal first wanted to be a singer, and her first New York stage credits are musicals. Her first on-screen role came in 1996 on the long running soap opera "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952-2009). At the same time, she landed a series regular role on "Legacy" (UPN, 1998-99). After a three-year run, Leal quickly segued into prime time, with a series regular role on "Boston Public" (Fox, 2000-04) created by David E. Kelley. She played a supporting role in the feature adaptation of the musical "Dreamgirls" (2006) starring Beyonce Knowles and a recurring role on "Private Practice" (ABC, 2007-2013) before landing another series regular role on the high school cheerleading drama "Hellcats" (The CW, 2010-11).

Once that show ended Leal appeared in a number of supporting guest roles and a recurring role on "Grimm" (NBC, 2011-17) before landing another series regular part, this time on the show "Recovery Road" (Freeform, 2016) playing the mother of the lead character, a teen with addiction problems. She also appeared as M'gann M'orzz, aka Miss Martian, on "Supergirl" (CBS, 2015; The CW, 2016-).
