There are many reasons why SHEMAR MOORE's fans adore him.
One of them is his devotion to his mother, Marilyn Wilson-Moore.
SHEMAR's father wasn't in his life, as his parents divorced when he was just a toddler. Marilyn raised her son alone, emphasizing the value of education, being a well-educated woman herself. She instilled in him a set of values which SHEMAR credits as being responsible for the man he is today. She taught him to believe in himself, and to be himself, when he struggled with his racial identity. Marilyn encouraged her boy to believe in dreams, which allowed him to achieve the success he has had in his career. SHEMAR currently stars on "Criminal Minds" which airs on Wednesdays on CBS.
Happy Mother's Day, Marilyn!
