Sharai showed talent as early as 2007, being nominated and then going on to achieve numerous awards. Her multi-dimensional skills shone through when cast in three different short films for Whistler's B-Grade Horror Festival, where she was awarded Best Actress. Then proving it was no fluke, in 2008 she once again snagged the award. This all built up to her most successful year in 2013 where she was honored with Best In Show at the Whistler 72 Hour Film Maker Showdown, 2013, then going on to achieve Best Actress and People's Choice Award at the Heavy Hitting Horror Festival, 2013.
Over the past decade she played supporting and lead roles in many shorts and indie projects before getting into acting professionally. She then went on to write, produce and star in her own, a grind-house style short aptly named Best Actress, with help from director Angie Nolan, of Swift Rock Productions. With an affinity for 50's era pin up style, she is completely at home playing characters such as her role in Katch-up, directed by Conrad Shapansky, playing the genie from a ketchup bottle. Her favorite role is being cast as "the bombshell" in a romantic thriller with an edgy love interest, but she shows how adaptable she is with a wide variety of roles and performances thus far. She has also been cast as principal in numerous commercials and print ads, including some for Labbat Blue Beer, SoCo5.com, and Tourism Whistler.
In person she's quiet and sophisticated but in character versatile and professional. Sharai enjoys marching to the beat of her own drum because being unique makes her happiest. Bursting with charisma, she's a people magnet and her creativity is contagious. Her playful nature and fearless approach to acting is refreshing on set. Off camera, one of her greatest assets is her intuition and understanding of kindred spirits which gives her a deep connection to nature and the world around her.
As well as being a grounded soul, she is also in tune with gratitude which cultivates a willingness to give back. In this arena she thrives as event coordinator and promoter, supporting a variety of charities such as the Howe Sound Woman's Centre, Mental Health Association, Heart and Stroke Foundation, Whistler Blackcomb Foundation and Whistler Animal's Galore. The Pink Taco Party, 2013 in aid of Howe Sound Women's Center,0 saw the 10th installment of this charity ball hosted by Sharai Rewels. A sell-out event with over 300 women all dressed in pink and a complimentary taco buffet, the concept is all about a celebration of women and giving support to those who need it most. She was also featured in Whistler Exposed Bikini Calendar, 2013 and 2014. A portion of the proceeds of Whistler Exposed are given to support Spinal Chord Research.
Her other interests are in fashion; modeling and clothing design. Her hobby brand, Chozn Clothing, designed and sewn in Whistler, BC, promotes "ethical clothing for an inspired culture" by integrating reworked vintage and reclaimed fabric. A boutique clothing line launched in 2006, with focus on consumer awareness to create dialogue about the social and environmental impact of the clothing industry.
What is in store for her future? "I want to be a talent in demand and collaborate with a plethora of amazing individuals within film and television's industry", she says. Continually working at Whistler FM radio doing advertisements and pre-recorded song titles, with plans to get into voice-overs for animated film. Perhaps one day you'll recognize her voice playing in a children's cartoon like My Little Pony. However, her focus remains on film and television, with goals to gain speaking roles in feature film or popular series. Maintaining a focused and driven attitude by working in commercials, music videos, and creative shorts she jumps at any chance to be in front of the camera- her favorite place in the world. There has been some talk about hosting webisodes for a kitschy pin-up cooking show? We'll see, either way it will be an adventure. Sharai Rewels is an undeniable talent with classic beauty and the natural ability to rise to any occasion.
