Actress Sarah Shahi, a new star on the show "Person of Interest" is full of contradictions. When you look at her you see this very attractive woman whom you could fully imagine as a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader which she once was. Yet, this sweet, beautiful woman is sexy angel with an edge. On her new show she plays an assassin and in her recent interview she admitted that she loves guns, performing all her own stunts and has several tattoos. She mentions this while being interviewed and preparing for a photo shoot wearing a pretty Monique Lhuillier gown and her own S&M style Chanel boots replete with zippers and chains.
Sarah Shahi is the ultimate contradiction and she loves being this contradictory character both on and off screen and so does Hollywood. On "Person of Interest", she is a cold-blooded assassin and yet when you see her on the Internet you find out she is on the list of Maxim's most attractive woman. When Sarah Shahi is informed that she made the list her response is that she is honoured to know so many men enjoy masturbating when looking at her and she says it with a smile and laugh that prevents one from being offended but actually more intrigued by what makes this sexy actress tick.
Sarah Shahi is the ideal person to play the role of Samantha Shaw on Person of Interest because she embodies the character, a beautiful woman who is so much more than her looks as it is her attitude and contradictions that make her so appealing.
Beautiful and tough. Glamorous and a lover of guns. These types of contradictions are what make Sarah Shahi so popular with fans and especially with Hollywood executives and it is why she is an actress whom television and movie viewers love.
