How do I get started?
In a recent interview with (Blank), Shaun discusses his acting career, short but very eventful. At age 17, Dixon made his debut as Cam in End of the Road which led to roles in (Blank) and (Blank). The turn of events that would change his life forever happened off-set when he was mugged at knifepoint. Shaun recalls being approached by four men who proceeded to beat him up before one pulled out a knife and demanded all his belongings. Shaun had no choice but to comply or risk death.
Where do I go from here?
Though he’s been largely out of the spotlight since going public with his being HIV+ in 2017, actor Shaun Dixon (known for End of the Road and Velvet Jesus) has been working behind-the-scenes on indie features like In Longing Peace and Grace. Recently, I reached out to him via email to catch up and see what he’s been up to. He told me that he has no regrets about his time as a film star and is now focusing on the positive things in life. I’m still pursuing acting opportunities but nothing that’s very promising, said Shaun. It’s tough because there are a lot of projects that are LGBT focused but then they don’t want you to be a gay character.
How did this all happen?
Dixon started as a child model at the age of 6, before transitioning to acting and starring in his first lead role as Cam in End of the Road at just 13 years old. In spite of success, having dreams come true, and fulfilling a lifelong dream, he was plagued with depression that led to drug addiction and substance abuse. He gave his life back to God when he went to rehab and turned things around. Shaun is known for End of the Road (2022), The Exit Row (2021) and Velvet Jesus (2021).

One Last Thing – The Music.
Music has always been an anchor in my life and I believe that it’s always given me solace, joy, and strength. It was always there for me. I feel like now is the time to express what I’m trying to say with music. – Shaun Dixon As Cam As we live our lives and experience moments, little things can come out of nowhere that have significant meaning and affect how you see everything. This could be about something trivial or life-changing. The way your mom would make a sandwich, the neighborhood dog who ran away one day when you were five years old and never came back, a song from your childhood that played during your dad’s funeral…It doesn’t matter how big or small; these are pieces of us. Pieces of us that make up who we are. Shaun Dixon As Cam – this album is about those little pieces.
