Sharon Benson is a character in the Disney Channel Latin America show Soy Luna. She is one the main antagonists of the show. She is portrayed by Lucila Gandolfo.


Sharon can be very bitter and cold at times, but she actually has good intentions with regard to her employees. She is saddened by Sol's presumed death, and tries to make sure the people all around her do not suffer the same fate. She's incredibly strategic and plans out her every step. She makes sacrifices for a better cause, and she is shown to be a risk-taker.

Her love for Ámbar is enormous, but she has incredibly high expectations for her. This is shown when Ámbar receives second place in the skating competition and Sharon lightly scolds her, and again when she finishes first, telling her that she'll congratulate her when she wins. It's presumed she does that to offer the best for her goddaughter, something that she couldn't do for Sol in time. However, Ámbar takes this scolding to heart, suggesting that Sharon should be a little less cold towards her.

In Season 2, Sharon's father, Alfredo, says that Sharon was extremely disciplined and intelligent already as a child. She always displayed impeccable behavior and passed every test with flying colors. However, even then she was already very serious, slightly melancholic and demanding, the latter being said to be inherited from her mother. In addition, Alfredo called Sharon the opposite of her sister Lili.
