Interesting Facts About Shannon Kook
Shannon Kook-Chun was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, to a unique cultural mix of parents: a Mauritian father of Chinese descent and a South African mother of Cape Coloured descent.
Following his family’s move to Montreal, Kook attended the National Theatre School of Canada to hone his acting skills.
Kook made his on-screen debut in 2009 with the Canadian television series “Being Erica.” However, his role as Zane Park on “Degrassi: The Next Generation” from 2010–2011 brought him wider recognition.
In 2017, he portrayed the character Duncan on “Shadowhunters,” further establishing his foothold in the industry.
In 2014, Kook was honored with the Toronto International Film Festival’s Rising Stars initiative, along with Alexandre Landry, Sophie Desmarais, and Julia Sarah Stone. This accolade spotlights four up-and-coming Canadian actors, making them more visible to talent developers and filmmakers who attend the festival.
Between 2015 and 2016, Kook dabbled in web content, starring in the popular web series “Carmilla.” He was also featured in the 2017 web series “Running With Violet.”
In January 2018, it was announced that Kook would be a mysterious new guest star named Lucas on The CW’s “The 100.” However, this turned out to be a strategic red herring, as his actual character was Jordan Jasper Green, the son of Monty Green and Harper McIntyre.
Interestingly, Kook had originally auditioned for the roles of Finn Collins and Monty Green in the series. He was eventually promoted to a series regular in seasons six and seven.
He shares screen credits with Lola Flanery and Chai Hansen in “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments.”
Kook and Ben Daon both have roles in the Disney+ series “The Mysterious Benedict Society.”
Astrologically, Kook is an Aquarius and his Chinese zodiac sign is a Rabbit.
