Actress from 'October Baby' Prolife Movie
Actress Shari Rigby is as true and open as the plains of North Dakota, from which she hails. Spending a part of her youth growing up in America’s heartland, Shari was enchanted by all things entertainment. Stepping into her small town’s movie theater, the world literally opened up to her. There, Shari first experienced the magical and transforming power of cinematic storytelling.
The world of acting would come calling in her church coffee shop. Soon Shari found herself doing commercials for American Airlines, Suzuki, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and many more major clients. As Shari continued to grow in the entertainment industry, she would receive small parts in films coming through Arizona. The passion continued to grow inside of her to study her craft and pursue an acting career in Hollywood.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 2009, Shari has starred in several independent dramatic feature films including EASY RIDER: THE RIDE BACK (2013), OCTOBER BABY (2012) opposite John Schneider and Jasmine Guy, and NOT TODAY (2013) with John Schneider, Cody Longo and Cassie Screbo. Television credits include: THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL.
After being in Los Angeles for a short time, Shari developed “The Women In My World,” a faith-based mentoring and discipleship program for women of all ages to grow them in their “IDENTITIES.”
Shari also works with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Feed The Children, The Gary Sinise Foundation and several other organizations. Shari is passionate about empowering women, children and giving her time to our Freedom Fighters.

"I can’t express how much I enjoyed hearing Shari speak and meeting her. I really felt like I was getting together with an old friend, you’re right she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. I still have people telling me what a great time they had at the banquet and how impressed they were with Shari!"
-Cheryl Meyer, Life Center
"God is so wise. He has equipped Shari in amazing ways. It was a blessing to have her join us."
