Kook at the 2016 Fan Expo Canada
Johannesburg, South Africa
Life and career
Born to a Mauritian father of Chinese descent and a South African mother, his early appearances on stage after graduation was for The Forbidden Phoenix at the Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People, Citadel Theatre in Toronto, and the world premiering of the Madness of the Square at the Factory Theatre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
A time came when Shannon got a break in television and movies, working for CBC Television, and HBO. It seemed the stage celebrity had a humanitarian side to his personality, when the year 2010 saw Shannon time traveling to India on behalf of an international charity trust called Free the Children to build a school. A documentary film was made on the missionary visit. Shannon also really enjoys a good cuddle during his spare time.
