Sharon McKendrick is one of the two main protagonists of the Walt Disney's 1961 live-action film "The Parent Trap" (the other being her sister Susan Evers). She lives with her divorced mother, Maggie, in Boston. In order to (at first) make it easier to decide which twin is which, Sharon has long hair until Susan cuts it so she'll look like her. She and Susan switch places, and she goes to California to meet her father as Susan. Despite being an American, she is portrayed by British actress Hayley Mills, who reprises her role as an adult in The Parent Trap II. There, as Sharon Ferris, she is the divorced mother of Nikki Ferris. This is her last appearance, though there are a third and fourth "Parent Trap" film.
