Meet Shahine Ezell

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shahine Ezell.

Hi Shahine, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Moved to Los Angeles in 2002 to attend CalArts BFA acting program. Got an agent and manager my senior year and have been working ever since.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The hardest part is finding work between acting jobs. I started writing and directing video content for advertising companies and that has been my lifeline during COVID. Recently directing three google small business videos.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m an actor that also writes and directs. From guest star roles on NCIS, Lie to Me, Better Call Saul and recurring role of Kelani on TNT’s Animal Kingdom. Working alongside Emily Deschanel for the second time. We also worked together on BONES almost a decade ago.

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
The film industry will forever be changed by Covid. I don’t see packed audition rooms and cross-town drives in hours of traffic. Everything will be cast on tape and the only time we will be in the room is when it’s producer/director sessions. I also believe that diversity will continue trending in the right direction. Representation across the spectrum will be the catalyst to change the world for the better.
