Shamier Anderson’s Tracker is one of John Wick’s many enemies in this fourth feature film about the famous and famous ex-assassin played by Keanu Reeves. Increasingly famous, this charismatic 31-year-old actor is not done talking about it and already has some notable performances both in TV series and on the big screen.
Stefan James’ older brother Shamier Anderson receives a scholarship to integrate into the Wexford College of Art School in Ontario, where he graduated. Then, along with martial arts, he studied criminology. Wanting to make a career in film and television, he starts going through castings. Thus, he finds his first roles in the series Lost Girl, Rookie Blue, Played, Infiltrators and Constantine.
In 2013, Shamier was given a larger role in The Next Step: The Studio for Netflix, a reality series that follows a dance troupe to win a regional and then a national competition. In the cinema we can see, more or less stealthily, Dancer in the Heart, Beyond the Line, The Color of Victory, Destroyer, City of Lies, Love Again or Son of the South.
But it is on the side of the small screen that he finds his most important roles. Witness his performances in Wynonna Earp, the fantasy series where he plays Deputy Marshall Xavier Dolls, but also in Goliath with Billy Bob Thornton. He is also one of the main characters of Invasion on Apple. In the latter, the Canadian will portray a soldier on a mission in Afghanistan, face to face with aliens.
At the same time, his roles in the cinema are increasing. He appears in the Netflix sci-fi films The Passenger #4 and Awake. But also (and always famous for the platform) Meurtree, where Halle Berry plays a former MMA champion looking to fight again. In early 2023, he will show his physical abilities in John Wick: Chapter 4, which is still directed by Keanu Reeves.
Shamier Anderson plays a man nicknamed Tracker who is hot on John Wick’s heels. He is accompanied by his faithful canine companion, a Belgian Malinois. The Canadian actor explains: “Tracker likes to touch things, whether it’s his notebook where he writes down absolutely everything he observes, Vicki’s bag, her flashlight, her fire, her clothes and her dog.”
Shamier came to Berlin before filming to train with his canine partners, as he recalls: “I had to spend the whole day with the dogs. They all had different personalities, did not have the same resistance and did not know how to do the same thing. I not only got to know them, but also tried to recognize their energy and establish a trusting relationship with them.”
In addition, Shamier Anderson sits on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Film and Television Academy. Together with Stephen James, he created the Black Academy, which promotes the promotion of black talent in the country.
