Born September 7, 1973 in Houston, Texas to a Syrian/Lebanese father and an English/Irish/German mother, Shannon Elizabeth is likely to be best remembered as the one who got away from Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999). She does have her fair share of horror credits, also. Starting in 1997 she fought off the advances of an evil snowman in Jack Frost (not to be confused with the Michael Keaton film of the same name; he was a good snowman). In 2000 she played Buffy Gilmore in the horror spoof Scary Movie. In 2001 she appeared in the remake of 1960’s 13 Ghosts, aptly titled Thir13en Ghosts to make it look all nice and fancy. Moving on to 2005 Shannon finds herself ripped apart by a werewolf in Wes Craven’s Cursed. In 2009 she portrayed bad-girl-who-becomes-possessed-girl Angela in Adam Gierasch’s remake of Night of the Demons.
Shannon’s sole TV genre credit is the “Dream Lover” episode of The Twilight Zone in 2002. Outside of horror she has appeared in the TV series, Melissa & Joey (2013), That ’70’s Show (2003-2005) and Just Shoot Me (2002) to name a few.

SAY WHAT, SHANNON?!?
“I’m not doing any more nudity.”
“I got to meet Mark Hamill. He signed some Star Wars posters for us. I saw the fight scenes he had. He was really into making fun of himself and Star Wars.”
“I don’t think I really do go shopping. Somehow clothes just kind of end up in my closet. I do not like shopping; I’m not into it.”
