​"Shannan absolutely killed it in the finale scene.  People will be talking about her performance for quite some time.  It was gut wrenching."  Mike Walsh- writer/producer of  Sno Babies 

Shannan is a Texas girl at heart, enjoying outdoor activities, camping, and playing sports. Shannan also loves British humor and is extremely hard to offend. She will watch an entire episode of The Munsters and still crack up.

As far as acting goes, she is a New York City/Philly actress who has worked on a variety of roles, from an affluent Upper East Side wife to Bill Pullman in the Ryan Murphy Netflix Limited Series, HALSTON, to a blue-collar upstate New York single mother in the comedic web series MIKE IS UNEMPLOYED

She will be seen opposite Catherine Daddario in the feature, THE TRIBUTARIES also starring Kelly Rutherford in 2023 and she recently worked with M. Night Shyamalan on Season 4 of SERVANTIn addition to her burgeoning career in film and TV, Shannan has had success in modeling, commercials and print work

Her short film, in which she played the lead, WHEN FATHER WENT BIKING, has been officially selected for numerous international film festivals.

Shannan is a published author of the book The Littlest Peanut-

an inspirational baby book for parents with children in the NICU.

In order to feel creative in other ways besides acting, she writes songs and plays guitar and piano. Shannan's original music can be heard on Spotify.

"Laughter is an instant vacation".

So that was really fun and that was supposed to be just one episode and then they added my character to another one and a few more seen to that was very exciting and then FBI the recent one and that is that was I was just on one and it was a very very small part but exciting than the life<br> I was at that was entrusted with with Bill what it what it what is he like on said I'm just curious he's very sweet he is in fact one to make a person called me and they're not to make up the wardrobe person called me cuz I always go over the Wardrobe before you show up on set as you know and they do before she hung up she said oh by the way Bill Pullman is the nicest person you will ever meet and I didn't I didn't ask for anything about it yet I always wonder if people are going to be like in person and so I said yes he is and then when I showed up I mean he could not be more of a gentleman and a sweetheart and so very sweet to<br> all that's great that's great to hear<br> how and when exactly did you realize you had the passion for acting<br> I think you know Pat<br> I've always had a creative mind and my grandmother used to always much soap opera General Hospital everyday and I would sometimes you know watch the shows with her her story and I would rather be in my room and pretend like I was dying to see if I could do it like how I would ask the bed like oh gosh I love you Rodger movie box so I never had the thought I want to be a famous actress I want to actually date was never like that sort of dream but it was something always in the back of my mind that seems like something so cool to do it so I never did theater I always liked sport<br> but I think it was just always kind of percolating there<br> from from from when I was little<br> when your little just play-acting expensive like I think it was an elf face cream to make our faces look like it goes from Fiddler on the Roof you got died and all the boys put on little acts in plays and we're always singing my friends and my and my sister my brother and I<br> and you made him do it anyway yes I'm very impressed with the feature film Snowbabies<br> and you received outstanding reviews for you played Claire mccaskill Claire mccaskill tell me about that my baby I just love it oh thank you so much yeah it's that was my first feature and I had my dad called and said they want you to read the first part and so I audition for one of the scenes and they said they're interested in and meeting you and I just want to meet you at I would like a Panera Bread or something that's why I met the director Bridget Smith and Mike Walsh the writer and they offered me the part right there on the spot so I didn't have to do a call back and fat<br> with such a amazing first experience and a anybody that doesn't know the Snowbabies is as 10:00 for heroin and I made a mother of my daughter is a sixteen-year-old straight-A student heroin addict and when we did that poem that was 2019 is when we are filming it and that was way before any of the opioid epidemic is even it's even more out of control and it was kind of like the Tipping Point so I didn't have an idea of how bad it wasn't our country and at the time my kids were a little bit younger so it was just an intense experience to be a part of something like that but beautiful at the same time because I feel like there are so many families that were involved who lost their loved ones to opioids and the heroin that were part of that snow and Ron set that it really was life changing<br> it was a learning experience life is educational for you pretty much and it helps you throughout your life experience yes it is definitely dead and and see and talk to other families I mean we have the one thing or my daughter I don't want to if somebody sees the phone there that's a pretty sad ending but I'm eating something positive but there were parents on the set that had bury their children and so for me to do a scene where I'm at a funeral for you know something one of my loved ones in front of a pair of who actually did bury their own child with so tight you know so hard cuz you want to do that justice but they are they want they were many of the parents because they just feel so passionate about informing everyone else to be scared you know she'd know I'd be aware of what your child is up to you and that it can happen to anybody and that was with no babies about like I'm a busy working mom<br> has been too busy working Dad we had the best of intentions and our daughter was off the rails and we had no idea and I happens everyday<br> everyday all the time world yes yes and then you play Debbie and the feature film retaliators<br> yeah that was on that was taped at crib Mike Walsh and Bridget Smith they were nice enough to give apart and died and I was a horror movie and that's what really while the film festival that was a small part and Katie Kelly play my daughter's no babies is also in that so silly boy is really loyal to us the one that gets the Philly Christmas is but I'm coming up on and they're really good about writing writing material there so nice they write with Uriel for me for their film that I just really appreciate it<br> yeah but you have a feature film that is scheduled to release what it was scheduled to release in October was that on schedule with the signs of love yes I got that came out in the theaters I got to go to the AMC theater in Terre Haute to my kids went with me and my daughter in that film is Zoe Arquette she's Rosanna Arquette's daughter and she is so talented he looks just like her mother he is as sweet as can be and she's so good he plays his death and the feel she plays a deaf girl and she falls in love with hopper Penn who played Frankie in that Sean Penn and Robin Wright son<br> so their chemistry is wonderful Hopper pin is the sweetest kid so nice and did that was really cool to be a part of that and I got to meet Sean Penn at the at the premier which was really cool to Sean Penn's what's a good actor<br> what you think it's wrong when you first met Sean<br> he's a little a little reserved is to me not in person but everyone that has met him that I know how it has said the same thing that he's been he's like that he's a little reserved very very side extremely pretty sure why they're they're not always extra parts that you would assume they would be but they're not but they're not going to come alive on the on the camera on camera yeah it is latest thing yeah it really is people have no idea<br> right and that Kim also won best director<br> where did yes and he got it was an award in Italy the Name Escapes me right now but it was their first award and so it got Italian distribution the film did and it was a really great award that they got in and Rome and the film is now on demand and then getting good reviews it's just a really with all filmed in Philadelphia Clarence of the commercial director has his first feature and we found that during covid-19 people that it's their first time doing something and that they skipped success from that and they're so generous and so I appreciate every single one of us feel like<br> every single the whole cast in all of us feel so important like it was important to the whole story about the pain in my face in my doubting I know one thing for sure<br> father used to say I want that do tonight I'm still working on me now he call me soon I need the miracle of Grace I need you<br> Legends<br> everything okay<br> porque siento que estas tocando a no teddy bear<br>

Because I was hearing covid and that was challenging and to work with the people that were just so sensitive and kind and so that she's editing. And it's it'll be a feature and we were really good producer behind it so I'm really looking forward to coming out and I hope that it can help people and people can relate to the story<br> you are you also worked on season 4 of Servants of yes but I signed an NDA on that talk too much about it but a great experience to work with midnight<br> and then about all this I mean all the faxing that you have going on I mean it's it's for Mendes you've also have been successful in modeling commercials and Print Work<br> can you die<br> modeling contest at the shopping malls and you can show up and showed up for one of these contests at the Galleria in Houston and so they brought me onto page Park she was a modeling agency what I think I look like 13 I think they wanted to send me to Europe and I my mom is like no absolutely not able to call it so I got to put that on the back burner but what I can tell anybody no matter what age you are you can still go back to 40th and 30th and whatever you can still model and do prep work so you don't have to be young to start out doing that<br> the truth that is absolutely true as long as you have the gift I mean they are what they looking for the height and and the measurements right<br> do you want to mention anything about your short film when father went biking<br> yeah that one at that one. I also played as a woman who is taking an ill and not that short and my. My father has dementia so that was also another cathartic experience to be able to to do that to my father was experiencing out his glioblastoma and I went to a number of film festivals and was nominated for different different Awards but what I say is when I started out with acting I didn't have anything on my real though if if a lot of these shorts I have been lucky enough to work on really really talented people but a lot of the shorts were in NYU phone and so I would start by did student film at Temple and Drexel in Philadelphia at NYU to be able to build a real<br> and get experience on a set so a lot of those I ended up winning Awards or were nominated or putting the festivals and they were student films<br>stop. I'm watching people by Tina.<br> Everybody get down hit the Quan<br>do you want<br>this is the best more show live streaming on the iHeart Network and 185 broadcast station worldwide who is also the author of them probably are you sure we should get matching tattoos on her first date probably stay together probably<br> it's been 23 minutes since I ate probably swim you should wait 30 minutes<br> I have a cramp<br> I can probably hit the Green from here probably<br> can I get a mulligan are you sure you're okay to drive sober I'm probably okay<br> probably okay isn't okay especially when it comes to drinking and driving if you're drinking call a cab a car or a friend buzzed driving is drunk driving I message brought to you by Nitsa and Ad Council describe your most challenging role to date<br> probably the well no babies with stuff because of the subject matter and a theme so I had to really put myself because I wanted to be so real I really had to you know imagine certain things I don't really necessarily like imagining to be able to cry and to get to the spaces and delays be really horrible and and something like that so that was really hard because I was like shaking from that for quite a few days after one of the things that we had felt when I look back on the phone but I look so tired and in a lot of the themes and it suits the fact that I actually am tired you know I'm a working mom and I'm dealing with a lot and so I can see it on my face like how about that you got to get the time we are filming it because I can think of the actors if you want to really tap into those emotions you really have to go to<br> Dark Places and Alive country just kind of feel like I'm in a dark place I think you just cuz I had to do a lot of things but I'm in bed and really really really sick so not fun to feel that way that took a few days to get over that one I was ready after that series and I had okay yeah yeah yeah yeah so would you say going into that those roles that would be probably the toughest part of your work<br> I think so but I can play all different types of people I think this waiting tables are the cocktail waitress and a variety. I guess that's why it's the hardest that does those would be the hardest was just really having to get bad not that I'm not sad it's just really getting into a place where you have to imagine I need for me my process that I do see that they process believe me I know but for me to have to be able to actually feel like it's real what's happening you just have to buy personalized I know you're not always supposed to do that but in certain situations I feel like I personalize it so that I can really get that emotion I don't have to do that all the time but especially I had to<br> I did only way I knew how to get to this place has was to make it personal<br> if that is a technique so that was my next question is what techniques do you use to create a believable character so you pretty much answered that<br> yeah I thought that's my technique and then Robert De Niro I heard one time say don't ever say anything that you don't need so every line if you're if you're not feeling it don't say that line and I always start always stuck with me because if you just say it for real and you feel it and it's okay that's coming from some place of Truth<br> I got stuck.
