Shantel VanSanten is known for a bunch of different TV roles, but she almost landed a big role in a 2010 movie!
The 35-year-old actress is opening up about a role that she auditioned for, but didn’ t get.
“ There’ s been a lot, are you kidding me? I’ ve been doing this for too long, ” Shantel told Buzzfeed .
“ So, Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried ended up doing it, but Dear John . I remember reading the script and being like, ‘ Oh my gosh, this is the best movie ever. ’ I went in and met with the director and it was only Amanda Seyfried , myself, and Jessica Biel , ” she said.
Shantel continued, “ I was like, ‘ Why am I here? ’ It was like they were like, ‘ Let’ s throw a regular person in the mix. ’ I was convinced I wasn’ t supposed to be there. I’ m so fortunate that I’ m a working actress, but obviously, their fame level had a little bit to do with me feeling quite out of place. ”
Shantel is known for playing Quinn on One Tree Hill , Patty Spivot on The Flash , Julie Swagger on Shooter , Becca Butcher on The Boys , and most recently, Karen Baldwin on For All Mankind .
