Larramie ‘Doc’ Shaw, best known as Malik Payne in Tyler Perry’s "House of Payne," is 26 years old already. The young man is the spitting image of his beautiful mother.
Shaw, who was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1992, started his career in the entertainment industry by appearing in print ads and TV commercials. By the time he was 14, he was playing the role of Malik Payne on Tyler Perry's show, "House of Payne."
His character was a witty teenage boy who was always involved in some kind of trouble.
Shaw has an exceptional relationship with his mother, and he acknowledges that she has been integral in his acting career. The young man often posts photos of her on his Instagram account with heartwarming captions to honor her.
One of his photos showed his mom wearing a grey top while looking to the side. Shaw captioned it:
"I realized when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.”
Another photo posted on Mother’s Day shows Mama Shaw looking at the camera while wearing a white shirt. In it, Shaw wrote a heartfelt message to the lady, saying:
"Best friend. Protector. Teacher. Provider....the titles are truly endless but the best title that only I get to have to myself that's most valuable is to be able to call you MY Mother. Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers!"
Shaw was on Tyler Perry's series until 2012 and appeared in about 130 episodes. Even though working on the set was vital for him, he didn't stop taking other roles.
