In the enchanting world of television drama, the power of storytelling often lies in the hands of gifted actors who can breathe life into their characters and immerse us in their captivating tales. Shanola Hampton is one such talented artist, and she’s now gracing our screens in NBC’s riveting new series, “Found.” But there’s more to this actress than meets the eye, as she’s not just a captivating performer; she’s also a proud Soror of Alpha Kappa Alpha.
Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Shanola Hampton was initiated into the illustrious sisterhood at the Mu Xi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, located at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C. With a family of AKAs, her sister, Andrea Hampton-Mills, is a member of the Omicron Rho Omega Chapter in Charleston.
In her most recent role as the star of NBC’s ‘Found’, Shanola portrays Gabi Mosely, a public relations specialist with a striking resemblance to Olivia Pope, the iconic character from “Scandal.” Gabi Mosely is savvy, aggressive, and authoritative, characteristics that make her a formidable force in the world of PR. Her mission, however, sets her apart – she’s dedicated to helping find missing children, particularly those who are not privileged or from wealthy backgrounds.
As the show’s narrative unfolds, it becomes clear that Gabi’s past is inextricably linked to her work. She’s not just an accomplished PR specialist, but also a survivor of kidnapping, a fact that adds layers of complexity to her character. Mosely’s unique ability to understand the intricacies of these cases stems from a deeply personal connection – she herself was once a kidnapped and she is keeping her kidnapper locked in her basement, where his insider knowledge of criminals becomes a vital resource for her investigations.
Shanola Hampton’s performance in “Found” has captivated audiences, and her character’s journey is one of resilience, determination, and complex storytelling. In Gabi Mosely, we see a powerful female lead who defies convention and stereotypes, showcasing a unique blend of strength, vulnerability, and determination.
Shanola is no stranger to the world of television, as she achieved fame through her role as Veronica Fisher in the Emmy-Award-winning series “Shameless.” This comedy-drama, set in Chicago’s South Side, explores the lives of the dysfunctional Gallagher family and tackles a myriad of social issues with humor and poignancy. Her portrayal of Veronica Fisher further cemented her status as a versatile and accomplished actress.
As we follow Shanola Hampton’s journey in “Found,” we can’t help but be excited about the rich and dynamic character she brings to life on the screen. Her dual roles as a Soror of Alpha Kappa Alpha and an influential actress underscore her commitment to both her craft and her community. With “Found,” she continues to leave an indelible mark on the world of entertainment and storytelling, reminding us that the power of art and sisterhood knows no bounds.
