Bio

Shawn Shepard is an American actor best known for his recurring role as Principal Turner on the television drama series One Tree Hill, from 2003-2008.

Shepard has built a name for himself in both the film and theatre community. Moving between acting and directing he has carved out a unique niche for himself in the industry. His SES Productions is constantly experimenting with innovative ideas of storytelling.

Shawn's onstage acting experience is varied ranging from Edward Albee's Zoo Story to Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird.

He has the good fortune of playing characters on opposite ends of the spectrum such as the crazed street punk child killer in Charles Fuller's, Zooman and the Sign to the morally conflicted George Garga in Bertolt Brecht's In the Jungle of Cities.

He performed in three plays directed by the late avant garde actor and director Joseph Chaikin. Under Chaikin's direction he played Malcolm X in Adrienne Kennedy's Sun, the bumbling Donald Martin in Eugene Ionesco's The Bald Soprano and the emotionally repressed Harry in Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance.

In 1998, Shawn directed a workshop performance of Worry Days, an original one play that he wrote. He also co-produced and directed Icarus Dreams, a comedy about a bizarre meeting between a prostitute and her guardian angel.

He performed the title role of Gabriel Prosser in Gabriel, for Austailian-based Theatre Lazuli, at the 2000 New York International Fringe Festival. A year later, he returned to premiere Worry Days as part of the 2001 NYFF.

Shawn has performed in such films as The Sorrow and the Pity, Mama Flora's Family, Passing Glory, Run Ronnie Run and The Fighting Temptations.
