I found all these distressed wood tables for sale at extraordinary prices online, so I went to Home Depot, got the materials, made the tables and started selling them. I don’t do it anymore. I have a more glamorous job now.” Stage Cred: Sharp graduated from The Juilliard School in May, where he performed in over a dozen productions, including Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, The Cherry Orchard and A Clockwork Orange. “New York City is such a massive, buzzing, high-strung melting pot. On the subway, I look around at other people and I think about where they’re from and what their experiences are. I miss access to countryside, but the city feels like home.” View Comments “Juilliard was a fairly traumatic experience. Having my life mapped out for me 14 hours a day for three years was terrifying. It felt like I was in the Army. But it’s amazing because you can go in and be sh*t and really work out who you are as an actor.” Current Role: A Broadway debut as Christopher Boone, a 15-year-old boy with Asperger syndrome who investigates the murder of his neighbor’s pooch, in the New York transfer of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. “Toby the Rat is a real rat. I haven’t met it yet, but I have mixed emotions. I’m not overly familiar with rats as pets, but I’m an animal lover, so I’m sure I’ll grow to love it.”center_img Age: 25 Hometown: London, England Related Shows “I used to drink beer and smoke cigarettes but that’s gone. No room to do that now! But I love to read, and I recently finished The Goldfinch. I’ve written journals about hitchhiking through South America, and I’m trying to turn them into a screenplay.” “I never adjusted to the normal schooling system. I could never just sit still at a desk, so my mother homeschooled me while we traveled North America and Europe. I was climbing all over castles and then learning about the history of them.” Show Closed This production ended its run on Sept. 4, 2016last_img
