Sharon Henderson from Atlanta, GA
Aside from watch TCM, what do you do?
I'm a book club member, sing in a community choir, volunteer at the Superbowls (Atlanta, Miami & hopefully Tampa), I'm an avid learner, I'm learning Spanish & sign language, I go RVing, ride Tennessee walking horses, I enjoy & embrace yoga, meditation, tai chi & Qigong, I love to cook & bake (from scratch), I nurture a beautiful flower garden, I am a lover of performing arts and pets, and I practice clean eating and exercise. My life purpose has led me to become a Life coach and a passionate Interior Decorator/Designer.
What’s your favorite movie snack?
Trail mix, mixed nuts.
What’s your favorite part of TCM?
Just knowing that there is a group of people that love classic movies as much as I do, gathering with other classic movie fans and discussing the films we view together, sharing information about the films, having access to purchase classic movies to add to my library, and hopefully one day attending the TCM Classic Cruise.
What’s your favorite movie genre?
Who’s your favorite actor or actress or filmmaker of all time? And why?
For actor: Cicely Tyson, Agnes Moorehead and Sidney Poitier. For filmmaker: Otto Preminger (Porgy and Bess and Carmen Jones), Vincente Minnelli and Busby Berkeley (Cabin in the Sky). The selection of music, the wardrobe for the period of time, the scenery, the makeup & hairstyles, the voices of the singers, the storyline and the acting and directing were superb.
Who would you be thrilled to meet, and what would you say?
Cicely Tyson. She's such a classy and sophisticated lady who stayed true to her craft and carefully selected the movies in which she would appear all the while leaving an impressive legacy. I would ask, did you know that your life in film would have such an admirable impact on so many people?
What do you collect?
Celebrity cookbooks, tea sets, porcelain dolls, lithographs and prints, and figurines.
