Actress Sarah Shahi is a rising star in Hollywood, and she also happens to be one of Oceana‚Äôs newest and most fervent celebrity supporters.
You might recognize Shahi from the Showtime series ‚ÄúThe L Word,‚ÄĚ where she played Carmen, a bilingual production assistant who moonlights as a DJ. She has also appeared in the films ‚ÄúOld School,‚ÄĚ "For Your Consideration,‚ÄĚ and on the TV shows "The Sopranos,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúDawson‚Äôs Creek,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúFrasier‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúAlias.‚ÄĚ
But when she‚Äôs not acting, she also plays the part of activist. This summer, she learned about our Stop the Drill campaign surrounding the Gulf oil spill and it struck a chord with her. On her Facebook and Twitter pages, she encouraged her supporters to take action with Oceana to stop offshore drilling. She changed her profile photo to a picture of herself holding a sign that read ‚ÄúStop the Drill,‚ÄĚ and she encouraged her supporters and friends to do the same.
