Sharon Schieber in Gone Girl

By Gillian Flynn

Sharon Schieber

Sharon Schieber is the top-rated network newswoman who gives Nick the game-changing interview that lures Amy back home. She's basically everything Ellen Abbott dreams about being at night, mostly because she can attack legal stories in a way that gives her credibility rather than making her look sensationalistic, even during her "freakin' righteous" approaches to stories of wronged women (41.35).

While she's initially angry over the news of the affair with Andie that breaks just before the taping, she eventually comes to Nick's side, possibly because of her own rumored infidelity several years before.
