SHANNON ASHLYN

Screen Acting

Born and raised in Switzerland, Shannon toured the theatre festivals of Europe as a young actor before moving to Australia to complete formal training as a performer. A graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, she worked extensively across stage and screen before shifting her focus to working behind the camera. She holds a Master of Directing from the Australian Film Television and Radio School and her most recent short, ‘Sweet Tooth’, is a dark and magical fairytale inspired by the well-known story of 'Hansel & Gretel’ by the Brothers Grimm. Narrated by Cate Blanchett and winner of the CAPA Prize for Best Fiction, ‘Sweet Tooth’ premiered at Cannes in 2019 and is currently on the international festival circuit. The concept is in development as a limited TV miniseries in the UK.
