Open Chest Interview with Melinda Shankar

Jul 17, 2013

Canadian teen sensation, actress Melinda Shankar has managed to defy all odds. At the tender age of 19, this Guyanese beauty has become a veteran in the teen acting world, and has done what very few South Asians before her have: bagged principle roles in two major globally syndicated TV shows,

Degrassi: The Next Generation (Epitome Pictures Inc.) and How To Be Indie (YTV), and that too, at a relatively young age. Known the world over as “Alli” and “Indie”, she continues to enthral audiences everywhere with two very different characters, both of which she has become known for and amassed a huge cult following for.

True to her Aquarian nature, this forward thinking adventurous actress sees obstacles as opportunities, challenges as a road to better things and is about as down to earth and honest as can be. I chatted with her post ANOKHI’s 5th Annual Gala in February this year, and discovered that although she’s young in years, she’s old in perspective. She talked about what inspired her to become an actress, how her positive outlook helped her to become the success she is today, how the un?inching support of her family keeps her grounded, and how going back to Guyana helped her connect with her roots. And this is only the beginning!
