Early life[edit]

Shayne was born to Catherine Topp (née Person) and Robert Royal Topp,[2] a fighter pilot.[3] His grandfather, Wayne Topp, was also a fighter pilot. Topp participated in an acting class with his friend who is also an actor, Noah Grossman, taught by the mother of Laura Marano.


Shayne also has experience in theatre performances, starring in "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" at Wonderworks Theatre Co. and "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" at Highland Lakes Theatre (as the title role).[4] Additionally, he has appeared in commercials.[5]
