Our friend and fellow LOVE POTION family member Shannon Thomas passed yesterday after a long battle. He was the Art Gallery Owner in our film and he was able to come see his final performance onscreen. I am so happy that he could do that.
Shannon was an Atlanta based actor, known for The Christmas Ride (2020), The Best of Enemies (2019), Black Lightning (2018), and Empire (2017). Shannon has thrived as a Character Actor and continues to embrace very diverse roles. While he enjoys portraying wicked and ruthless characters, his favorite role is playing Santa Claus for the Warner Brothers produced theatrical version of The Polar Express.
We are very sad that our fellow artist and friend has left us. We extend our heartfelt prayers, good wishes and love to his real family and his partner @debyeswilley. GOD SPEED SHANNON! .
