Shane West is Louisiana through and through. The A Walk to Remember star and Louisiana native stars in The Dirty South. Returning Shane to his Louisiana roots in this gritty crime drama. I spoke to Shane about his Louisiana origins and The Dirty South.
It was my first time speaking with Shane West and it was a pleasant experience. He seems like a nice guy and definitely a big sports fan like myself. He’s a New Orleans Saints fan, I’m a Chicago Bears fan. Ironically, both our teams were facing each other the week we had our interview.
Shane West will always be remembered for his role in the romantic classic A Walk to Remember. He will always be linked to that film and Mandy Moore, but their careers have been very successful since that film, for both.
He has been occasionally quiet over the years, in terms of his work, but over the last couple years he’s certainly had a career renaissance and starring in a lot of films. I always found him to be a talented actor, so glad he’s appearing in a many projects.
Shane works well alongside Willa Holland in the film. They have good chemistry and she also delivers a really solid performance.
