Shariba Rivers is a Chicago-based actor with on-camera, stage, and voice over experience; she is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA.
A Louisiana native, she moved to Chicago to continue her education career. Little did she know she would be bitten by the acting bug; she has fallen completely under its spell feeling more comfortable on stage than almost any place else. She has worked throughout Chicago; she has also traveled to Fayetteville, AR; Portland, OR; Rochester, NY; and Indiana for productions. TV appearances include Chicago Fire, Empire, The Chi, Chicago Med, Chicago PD and a few commercials; audio credits include voicing the character Lillian Harper in the popular audiodrama, Unwell: A Midwestern Gothic Mystery, for which she won an AudioVerse award in 2019 and for which the series recently won a BBC award.
Words are not enough to encompass the depths of her gratitude to be loved and lifted up by her family--blood and chosen. She has a profound respect for her Chicago acting family, which has some of the most dedicated and hardworking artists in the industry.
