House of Payne star Doc Shaw: A positive role model for young men

Several weeks ago during a talk show, talented actor and Atlanta native, Doc Shaw was interviewed by the host. When asked who his favorite performer is/was, young Mr. Shaw said Dean Martin. His favorite song by Dean Martin is "I Wish You Love". He also shared he loved the original "Rat Pack", and their style. The "Rat Pack" included Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford, and were very popular in the 1950's and 60's. After Doc Shaw's answer, the audience was so silent you could hear a pin drop...and then applause. It was evident this young man marches to the beat of his own drum and does not conform to the norms of his peers.
Doc Shaw can be seen in the role of Malik Payne, in Tyler Perry's House of Payne on Wednesday evenings.
Born on April 24, 1994, Larramie (Doc) Shaw is the only child of Larry and Tammy Shaw. From an early age, everyone knew Larramie was special. His educator grandparents named him Doc and soon Doc embarked on a career as a print model initiated by his father. Tragically, when Doc was two, his father was killed in an automobile accident.
Print modeling was soon followed by commercials, and eventually he was chosen for the role of Malik.
In 2009, Shaw was awarded an NAACP Image Award, Young Artist for Best Supporting Young Actor in a Television Series (Drama or Comedy) , and won a NAMIC Award (National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communication) for Best Performer in a comedy series.
