Welcome to the character page for the animated series, ''{{Braceface}}''


[[folder:Main Cast]]

!! Sharon Spitz
->Voiced by: Alicia Silverstone (Seasons 1-2), Stacey [=DePass=] (Season 3)

The lead of the series. A socially awkward girl whose braces complicate things even more (especially since they got affected when a lighting storm hit while they were being fitted on her). Also a stout vegetarian, animal lover and activist.

* AlliterativeName
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Genesis. [[spoiler: Until it's revealed that Genesis feels the same way about her.]]

* ISophagus: Her braces tend to affect the environment around her from time to time including messing with lockers, electronics, water fountains, even sometimes receiving radio signals in her mouth.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Especially when it comes to activism. She is very stubborn in insisting that her reasons are the right one and can never see things from the other person's POV most of the time.
