Shannon Kook-Chun



Shannon is in his 20s and came to Canada 6 years ago after leaving South Africa. His father is Chinese and his mother is South African. He loves acting but is also passionate about dancing, singing, and photography. Shannon currently is on two shows, Baxter(CBC) and Degrassi.


On Degrassi he is Zane, yoga instructor and football kicker as well as Riley's boyfriend. He's certainly the sweetest guy on the show. In reality though, he's not gay. He said he's straight in an interview recently, but there is definitely chemistry between Riley and Zane, and yet his character is a mentor of sorts to Riley about coming out of the closet. His character is seriously a role model for the gay community.

I hope this finds you doing well. I've had a rough week. I got laid off on Tuesday. Now I have to find a new job in such a bad economy. Wish me luck. Thanks. Take care. Enjoy the upcoming weekend.
