Shameless' Shanola Hampton Loved Veronica's Unfiltered Nature

During an interview with Glitter in 2021, Shanola Hampton spoke very highly of her role on “Shameless” as Veronica, and what made the character so compelling. While she enjoyed the character development of Veronica, for her, the best thing about Veronica was how frequently she spoke her mind.

“It’s been incredible to play that evolution, but also to witness it,” Hampton said. “She started out not wanting children, then really wanting children, then not knowing what to do once she had children, to being the best mama bear. My favorite part is her lack of filter; she says what she means with no apologies.”

Indeed, Veronica always said whatever she was thinking — usually in a hilarious way — and was unafraid to call out other characters for their ridiculous choices, including her best friend, Fiona. While the later seasons of “Shameless” were a mixed bag for many fans, the relationship between V and Kev remained a highlight to the end.
