Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Before he was popping shots off into the empty heads of marauding zombies, and battling snarling werewolves, vampires, and other demonic creatures in feature films, burly actor Shawn Roberts was best known for his role as high school rapist Dean Walton in the popular Canadian teen soap "Degrassi: The Next Generation."
