Tammylee & Shep -Showcase Saturday

“Tammylee approached, the scout looked at her then looked at Shep and said “Are you two together? Because we like her look too!”. The rest is history.””

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at MAX Agency —  a successful Toronto talent agency representing men, women and children.

In honour of National Spouses Day on January 26th, we will be featuring the lovely couple: Tammylee and Shep!

An introduction to Tammylee and Shep:

“We’re a late forty-ish going on nineteen-ish couple. We are both originally from Montreal’s South Shore. About twenty years ago Shep, who is a police officer, received a lateral transfer and we moved to the Ottawa region. Tammylee teaches yoga and has recently incorporated a small business specializing in Keto diet products. We have two adult sons who are (sappy cliché alert) the centre of our universe. They are both lovely people and we enjoy just being around them.

In terms of our heritage, we recently had both sets of our parents’ DNA analyzed and, as we suspected, we are terminally Caucasian. We are a delightful white bread mix of English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Norwegian, German, etc. Yup, not very colourful, but we’re proud.”

How they met:

“We met through a blind date which was organized by Tammylee’s best friend and Shep’s best friend who were dating at the time. That was just over thirty years ago, and we have been together ever since. Gotta say Montreal is the perfect city in which to fall in love. We are each other’s best friend, supporter, advocate, …. We are the ultimate team, and literally make our sons nauseous with our displays of affection – nothing a wee bit o’ therapy can’t fix. We once saw an inscription on a bench in Central Park which read ‘More Than Yesterday – Less Than Tomorrow’ that pretty much sums up how we feel for each other as we enter our fourth decade of, well, love.”

How they got into modelling/acting:

“As for modeling and acting, full disclosure right up front: we are brand new to this! It was only a few months ago that we were both in Toronto for business and we had our first contact with MAX Agency.

Shep was waiting for Tammylee outside of a store in the Eaton Center when he was approached by a scout who just walked up to him and said “We like your look…”. Now, Shep is a cop, and anyone who walks up to him in such a manner is subject to; on a good day, suspicion; on a bad day, arrest. Fortunately for all involved the scout promptly convinced Shep of her authenticity. As the two spoke, Tammylee emerged from the store and noticed Shep talking to another, attractive, woman. Tammylee approached, the scout looked at her then looked at Shep and said “Are you two together? Because we like her look too!”. The rest is history.”

How they spend their spare time:

“Our spare time is filled with physical activities such as hiking, yoga, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and spending time with family and friends.”

Favourite thing about each other:

Tammylee’s favourite thing about Shep is his compassion, sensitivity and of course his sense of humour, “I’m still laughing after 30 wonderful years!” Shep’s favourite things about Tammylee are her selflessness, intelligence, moral compass, patience, and the fact that he is one of her favourite things.

Advice for anyone going into the business:

“Just be yourself!”

Tammylee and Shep truly are “couple goals”!
