Shane was meant to be an actor and wanted to be on the stage and in front of the camera from his early days. He even used to practice Oscar speeches standing on his couch and keeping stuffed animals as his audience from as young as four years of age.

As he grew older, his passion for acting grew along with it. While studying at the Beverly Hills High School, he received training in performative arts at The Theatre Arts Department from the likes of Herbert Hall, Joel Pressman, and Josh Butchart.

In addition to learning acting, Shane also trained in classical vocals. This came in handy for his parts in musicals and madrigals (advanced choir).

He ended high school education taking part in a play, Fiddler on the Roof, in the final year. In the play, he portrayed the lead character, Tevye.

Following high school graduation, he initially joined Cal State Northridge while also pursuing his career in acting. However, he lasted there for just a year—Shane transferred to the University of Southern California and graduated from there with a BFA in Acting in 2016.

An up-and-coming American actor, Shane Paul McGhie, first came into public attention with his role as Hunter in the TV series Criminal Minds in 2017. Since then, he has done quite a few movies, and his fan following is increasing by the day.

How Tall is Shane Paul McGhie?

According to IMDb, Shane stands at the height of 6 feet one inch or 1.85 meters. This might have helped him land his role in the 2019 movie What Men Want.

In the movie, he plays Jamal Barry—the number one pick in the NBA draft in the film. Portraying an NBA player is not a job if you have a lower height, and his height might have been a factor in him getting the role.
