Anna Kathryn Holbrook (née York; born April 18, 1957, Fairbanks, Alaska) is an American soap opera actress, best known for her role as Sharlene Frame Hudson on Another World, a role she played originally from 1988 to 1991. She returned from 1993–97, and again in 1999.

Frame was plain and a victim of sexual abuse and multiple personality disorder, but Holbrook proved she could portray her convincingly. She was subsequently paired with David Forsyth. She won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress award for her role as Sharlene in 1996.[1]

Holbrook has appeared in numerous guest starring roles on Law & Order and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She appeared in the film I Love Trouble, which starred with Nick Nolte. She has also appeared in off-Broadway and regional theater.[citation needed]

Holbrook's father, Don York (aged 29) was killed in South Vietnam during the Vietnamese War. Her mother later remarried.[1]

Anna and Bruce Holbrook have been married since 1979, and have two children. She is currently an acting teacher at the Performing Arts Conservatory in New Canaan, Connecticut.[1]
