HER CAREER. Being gone for seven years, Sharmaine said she missed showbiz a lot.
"This is almost my home," she said.
"I don't have sisters to speak of, so I don't really have... It's sad to say, but I really don't have a life outside show business because my family's gone.
"They're in Australia, they're in the U.S.
"Showbiz is my family, I love this. I appreciate it more now after being gone for a long time."
What did she miss most when she was away?
"I miss learning from life," she said, smiling.
"When you read a script, when you become a character, you live the character's life, and you learn from that," the actress explained.
Sharmaine is grateful she was welcomed back by people in the industry.
"People have been very warm. They accepted me with open arms. Quite a few have said they're glad to have me back.
"I wasn't expecting anything.
