Characters

Sharon Spitz

Sharon Spitz is the main character of the series. Sharon has many and wants almost everything a teenage girl wants to be popular,get good grades hang out with friends, and have a boyfriend.Sharon sometimes, does get into trouble and mess up like every other teen, but she always learns from her mistakes and sets things right in the end, no matter what the situation. Sharon is also known to be a clumsy girl and would somehow end up embarassing herself. Sharon's rivalis Nina Harper, who attends Sharon's junior high school and later senior high school. Sharon's traits are,clumsy,resonsible caring, helpful and so much more good and some bad traits about her like every teen. Sharon's family members include her father Richard, her mother Helen, and her two brothers, Adam and Josh.

Sharon's best friend is Maria Wong and her other friends are Connor MacKenzie, Alden Jones, Brock Leigthon, Dion, Marlo, and later on, Alyson Malitski. Sharon has five pets. Her dogs, Pigger and Sampson, her cats Moshie, Rocky, and Lawrence. Sharon is the middle child in her family. Sharon's favorite singers are Leena and Taylor Knight, both of who she met in person, in the episodes, "The Good Life"and "Knight To Remember". She was an extra in Leena's new music video and she learned she had a lot in common with her and she also learned from Leena that being a big star isn't easy as people think. Taylor Knight wasn't at all who Sharon thought he was and he ended up being a guy who's full of himself and he didn't seem to really care about her so Sharon was glad when he canceled their date to her prom. Sharon had a huge crush on Alden and they eventually become boyfriend and girlfriend, but later on, Alden ends their relationship. In the final episode, "Leap of Faith", Alden comes back to Sharon and tries to rebuild their relationship, saying that it was his mistake to end it.

Sharon's character is based on the early life of the actor Alicia Silverstone. Just like Silverstone, Sharon is an animal rights supporter, and a vegetarian. Many times, her braces form a central part of Bracefaces plots, as they are magnets, which leads Sharon to unintentionally attract different objects and get into embarrassing situations, although they do help her occasionally. In the first episode, they are shown to pick-up radio and telephone frequencies, though it is never explained how. Usually, Sharon's braces hinder her more than they help her.

Dr. Helen Spitz

The mother of Sharon, Adam, and Josh and a professional psychologist. Not only is she successful as a psychologist who sees clients in her home office, she's also a single parent raising three kids. Helen is a great mom who does her best to stay 'in touch' with her kids. This sometimes takes the form of 'psychoanalysing' Sharon and her brothers, which drives them crazy. Sharon sums up her mom in three sentences: "Means well, love her dearly, doesn't get it". Helen divorced Sharon's father when Sharon was seven, but her parents still get along well. Helen is now dating a guy named David who, in Sharon's opinion, is a dorky guy who wears dorky ties, but despite this opinion, she likes him.

Adam Spitz

Josh Spitz

Sharon's younger brother, and an aspiring pianist. Because of this, Sharon often says to anyone who needs to see him; "If you're looking for my little brother, just shut your eyes and follow the sound of classical music!". Josh is not just aspiring but something of a piano prodigy, and he therefore spends much of his time playing classical music. Josh aspires to become a professional musician like his father. Away from the piano, Josh is an ordinary kid enjoying video games, fast food, and playing with the family pets. Sharon cares deeply for Josh and the two couldn't be closer. The two tend not to argue, other than when he's been a nuisance, such as when Sharon wanted to spend time with Alden, only for Josh to go and spoil it for her at every turn (his mocking reactions when he learned of her hoped romance with Alden didn't go down too well with her and proved bad for him during the outcome). Josh's piano playing also tends to get on Sharon's nerves while she's doing a task like homework, or writing an email to a special someone. Josh also went through a period when he thought that Alyson was in love with him. In one episode she spent a lot of time with him as she liked both the way he played the piano and his selection songs. Alyson even went so far as saying that he played like another piano player she liked. Josh tried getting in a relationship with Alyson by giving her a flower and holding hands, but realized Alyson loved being Connor's girlfriend. However, Alyson told Josh that she would still like to remain his friend. Despite all this, when it comes to giving out advice to her, his family or anyone willing to listen Josh is, at times, wise beyond his years . Perhaps because of his innocent and childish perceptions he sees things in a clearer and less complicated way than the others.

Maria Wong

Sharon's best friend. A tomboy and sports fanatic she is laid back but incredibly organized, (except for the fact that her room is always a mess). Loyal and honest, Maria knows when to give Sharon a shoulder to cry on, and when to tell her to 'get over herself.' Maria loves extreme sports, and is always trying to get her friends to join her, but Sharon and Connor don't share Maria's thirst for danger or her competitive streak. Because of this, Maria usually ends up whizzing down the snowboarding pipe on her own, while her friends cheer her on from a safe distance. Maria has an older sister Alee who attends college. She appears once in the series in the episode "Angels Among Us" when their family is doing their Christmas traditions, but she is mentioned by Maria in other episodes in the series. Maria also happens to be brilliant in school, but she's no goody-goody. She and Sharon have been 'partners in crime' on more than one occasion, including when Maria starts to make a habit of using the "five finger discount" and steals a pair of earrings[1]. Maria's background is as diverse as her interests; as she's half-Chinese and half-Italian, and she embraces all the good stuff both cultures have to offer. When Maria liked one of her teachers she met him for lunch at a restaurant, Sharon went to spy on her to make sure she kept her feelings to herself (she hid under the table while the two were talking to each other), Maria slipped one of her shoes off while Sharon was underneath the table and Sharon commented that her feet stink. She was disappointed when she learned he requested she join him along with several other students to request they volunteer as he felt they all had potential in becoming teachers themselves. Maria was disappointed, but learned it was probably better the teacher was behaving professionally, towards the end of the second season and the rest of the series Maria becomes Brock's girlfriend.

Alden Jones

Sharon's first crush and later boyfriend. Alden's hobbies include video games and sports. Alden has three older sister's Lily, Daisy, and Violet who all work together with their parents at their family's restaurant. Maria stated in the episode "The First Worst Date Ever Period", that she thinks Alden is some kind of weed name. Alden plays hockey with his friends for fun for the boys team in both middle school and later on at Elkford High in the series. Alden also plays the guitar in a band called "Mangled Metal" with his friends Brock and Carmen. He was Sharon's first boyfriend, and after they break up, they remain friends. Later, Alden becomes Marlo's boyfriend but they break-up in the long weekend episode. He and Sharon start dating again at the end of the series, when Alden tells Sharon he still loves her.

Connor MacKenzie

Sharon's other best friend who plays the show's stereotypical geek. He lives in her neighbourhood and treats Josh as a surrogate little brother, who Josh can come to if he's having a problem his family can't help him with. Connor has been Sharon's neighbour and friends since they were babies. At the beginning of the series, Connor starts to date a new girl in Elkford named Tally at first he was scared, but they became a couple, for most of the first season , Then towards the end of the first season they broke-up It is never mentioned if they remained, friends afterwards but Tally is shown in later episodes though. Connor and Sharon have a lot of things in common, such as hanging out at Life Cycles the smoothie shop, in Elkford and going to the movies. Connor has severe allergies, and is allergic to almost everything. Thanks to his awkwardness, allergies and a touch of hypochondria, Connor has a reputation as an oddball, but Sharon and his good friends know that there's way more to 'the walking sneeze' than that. He's a whiz at science, believes in extra-terrestrial life, and he plays a wicked game of cards. And when it comes right down to it, Connor doesn't care what most people think of him. He's okay with himself. Connor eventually overcomes some of his oddball ways to have the courage to tell Alyson how he feels about her, In the Episode "triangles" Connor and Alyson are brought closer, together after her dad rescues him from a fire at Life Cycles. Connor becomes Alyson's boyfriend for the remainder of the series.

Nina Harper

Ever since, Nina's been doing her best to wreck Sharon's life and those who dare attach themselves to her. For example, Nina was the one who stuck Sharon with the nickname "Braceface". Nina isn't well liked by many kids, but loved by adults. Although not many people don't like Nina there are some who wouldn't mind being her, Nina has all the money, looks, and life a lot of people would love to have. Nina has helped Sharon on a few occasions though like in the episode "Lorenza" Nina helped Sharon look for the dog when, Lorenza went missing and later on Sharon gives Lorenza to Nina when she revealed why she wanted a dog. Nina's aspiration in life is to be an international fashion model. Part of this reinforces her attitude as a heartless bully who subjugates those she sees as flawed to ridicule and pull spiteful pranks on, Sharon and her friends, For example in the episode,"Triangles" Nina Made a fake humiliating slide show Of Sharon and Maria for turing Alyson against her, Nina also becomes Griffen's girlfriend later on in the third season.
