Strong women are the name of the game on TV these days, and count Keesha Sharp among the actresses ensuring that the male characters can keep it together on their toughest days.
First as Johnnie Cochran's wife, Dale Cochran, on The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and now taking on the rather iconic role of the ever-patient Trish Murtaugh in Fox's retooling of Lethal Weapon, Sharp has become the definition of "better half" on the small screen. Moreover, in the TV version, Mrs. Murtaugh is a high-powered attorney in addition to being an understanding wife and mom.
"I'm a huge Lethal Weapon fan anyway, so being part of the show is like a dream come true," the actress, whose credits also include Girlfriends and Everybody Hates Chris, told E! News when we caught up with her at the Fox Emmys party, where People v. O.J. was celebrating nine Emmy wins.
