In August 2004, Shaun Benson took on the role of Dr. Steven Weber, formerly Steven Lars. Steven, also a forensics specialist, is torn between loyalty to his mentor, Federal Prosecutor John Durant, and his growing feelings for Durant's daughter, mob wife Carly Corinthos.
Shaun studied the arts from a very young age, including piano, ballet and modern dance. As a student at the University of Western Ontario, he appeared in many collegiate productions before deciding to pursue acting full time. Graduating with a bachelor of science in chemistry/biochemistry, he trained at the George Brown Theater School in Toronto and went on to appear in numerous acclaimed theater productions in and around Toronto.
His first ever television role was a series lead on the critically lauded The Associates, which led to another lead for the PAX network on Just Cause. In addition to various independent and experimental films, Shaun can be seen opposite Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson in K-19: The Widowmaker.
Born in Guelph, Ontario, Shaun now makes his home in Los Angeles. An avid martial artist (3rd degree black belt, Legacy Shorin-ryo), Shaun also enjoys racing his vintage Porsche and drinking Guinness and Jaeger at his local pub.
