Shannon MacKinnon is an actress, author, host and producer. She graduated top of her class from Seneca College's Acting for Camera and Voice in June 2012. She is continually looking to expand her artistic portfolio.
As an actress, she's an instinctive "character actor" who has the emotional depth to understand complex and unusual characters complemented with a comedic charm and vulnerability that is instantly likeable. Think Marianne Dashwood in "Sense and Sensibility" meets Karen Page from "Daredevil" with a dash of Zoey Deschanel in "New Girl".
Shannon is currently the Host and Community Producer of Hamilton's Cable 14 series "The Artist's Toolbox" and "Welcome to the Real World". She prides herself with the ability to put her guests at ease with her easy going personality allowing for a more honest conversation.
In September 2015, Shannon was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul Dreams and Premonitions.
She has appeared on Cable 14's Hamilton Life, AM900 CHML's "The Bill Kelly Show", and in the "Hamilton Spectator". She has also appeared on Canada's Most Listened to Spiritual Talk Show, "The Drew Marshall Show".
My Artistic Promise
My artistic promise is to bring an open heart and mind to every opportunity, to honor the creative space and the creatives working alongside me, to show my commitment and my love for this work-always.
My hope is that with my unique voice as a storyteller I can make you think differently about the world, have you gain a greater sense of empathy and connect to you through my craft on a raw human level.
My mission in life is simple-I was born to create, to help, to entertain and to heal. I hope on the creative exploration that we shall take together I can do just that.
All my love,
