    • Shawn: I've always been a real fan of movies, and found out that there wasn't anything I could really do in life, so I just said, 'I might as well pretend for a living.'

    • "I kind of bounced around from school to school," said Reaves, during a recent telephone interview from Vancouver, where his new show is filmed. "I tried to get as much training as possible from all different kinds of teachers and coaches."

    • What he thinks about fame: "It's weird," he said. "You train so much on learning how to act, but you don't train with how to deal with anything. "I don't think it's something you prepare for."

    • Acting for television "is different from work in other businesses, in that your job is, like, forever," he said.

    • "Working actors inspire me," said Reaves, adding that the teen-targeted movies of director John Hughes also had a significant influence.

  • Shawn is great

    I found him to be very entertaining as Tru Davie's brother Harrison in Tru Calling. He always had some reason for her to come save the day, and at least once, she had to actually repeat a day to keep him from dying. I was however sad that they never did show the last episode on tv. I also have found him to quite interesting as other quest spots he has done. I enjoyed him as Eddie the lawyer on Life. I will continue to watch out for any other possible shows, movies, etc he may be a part of in the future.moreless
