Landon Kirby in “Legacies”
Aria Shahghasemi stars as Landon Kirby, a Mystic Falls townie, who catches the eye of Hope Mikaelson, on The CW’s new drama LEGACIES.
The oldest of two children born to Iranian immigrants, Shahghasemi grew up in suburban Minneapolis playing soccer, football, hockey and tennis. He performed in high school plays, which ultimately led him to the theater program at Southern Oregon University. He then transferred to the celebrated Neighborhood Playhouse in New York. Shortly after graduating, Shahghasemi booked episodes of “Unforgettable,” “Law and Order: SVU,” and “Instinct.” He also performed in the off-Broadway play “Connected,” and was seen in the independent feature “No Alternative.”
