Valerie Sharpe (Jeri Ryan) is a minor antagonist in the 2000 film "Dracula 2000".
Valerie is a TV news reporter, who is reporting on the plane crash in which Count Dracula's coffin is being transported from London to America. As she is filming near a lake, she asks her camera man if he got "the flash, get the sunset, get my tits?". When she begins her intro again, Dracula suddenly comes out of the water. At first he is not seen by the camera man or on film. However, he then grabs her from behind and cuts her throat. All we see is a blood streak on her neck. Suddenly, the camera man sees him. He drops the camera and Dracula kills him. Valerie is shown running into the TV van for safety. However, Dracula suddenly appears, and for some reason she begins to calm down.
Valerie is bitten on the throat and drained of blood off-screen by Count Dracula (Gerard Butler) in the TV news van.
Valerie later comes back to life as a vampire, and is seen as a group of three brides which includes Solina (Jennifer Esposito) and Lucy Westerman (Colleen Ann Fitzpatrick). Solina was Van Helsing's secretary, and Lucy was a college student. Together the three of the birdes corner Van Helsing (Justine Waddell) and kill him. Valerie makes the comment while on top of him, "So tell me, you dream about making it with a TV star?"
Valerie is later stabbed in the chest with a wooden stake when Simon Sheppard (Jonny Lee Miller) throws it at her.
