Get to know Shawn!
TCTP: Adam knows what snack to bring to any occasion. What's your go-to snack?
SR: Frozen peas
TCTP: Max and Jenna lie about their relationship all in the name of love (or wanting to get away from it.) What do you think is worth lying for?
SR: Keeping a surprise party or present a secret.
TCTP: MISSED OPPORTUNITIES is a spin on classic romantic comedies. What's your favorite rom-com and why?
SR: Definitely, Maybe because I’m a sucker for stories where the protagonist ends up with that friend who’s always been on the sidelines.
TCTP: All four of our characters are just 20-somethings trying to live their lives and be adults. When do you most feel like you're adulting?
SR: Having friends over for dinner.
