Sharon Maguire

Date of Birth: November 28, 1960

An English director, Maguire started her career in 1991 with the BBC as producer and director for The Late Show. Two years later she began making documentaries, several of which became acclaimed for their quality. Some of these documentaries include The Godfather, Picasso, The Thatcher Years and the comical Dame Henrietta's Dream: A Year In The Life Of Hampstead Garden Suburb.

For her work, she was nominated for an Empire Award for Best Debut. She then directed the thriller Incendiary (2008), followed by the third installment of the Bridget Jones franchise Bridget Jones's Baby in 2016.
