Shantel VanSanten Says USA's new <i>Shooter</i> Scores a Bullseye -- and She's a Tough Grader
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Shantel VanSanten has never been accused of shooting the president.
But she's still had to do some fighting to get to where she is today, which is a starring role in USA's new action drama Shooter, premiering Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET.
VanSanten plays Julie Swagger, wife of Bob Lee Swagger (Ryan Phillippe) (above). He's a retired Marine, and they're living quietly in the country with their young daughter Mary (Lexy Kolker).
An exciting night is when he brings home Indian takeout. Life is good.
Then a former colleague asks a favor. There have been reports a sniper may try to kill the president, so could Bob Lee scope out the site of a presidential visit and figure out where a sniper might lurk?
Sure, he says. Except when the sniper fires the shot anyway, Bob Lee becomes the prime suspect. After all, he was seen prowling around the site.
Suddenly life is not quiet any more for Bob Lee and Julie, who has to navigate a treacherous situation largely by instinct.
