Shawnee Smith Introduction
Sure, you could make a Saw movie without Shawnee Smith, but why on Earth would you want to?
Shawnee Smith Life Story
One of the few survivors of the Saw films, Shawnee Smith has become a huge hit with horror fans. But before escaping the sadistic serial killer Jigsaw, Smith was a acting on TV shows such as Married with Chrilden (Christina Applegate) and on the Ted Danson comedy Becker. You may even remember Smith from the 1982 film version of Annie, where she had a small role.
In 1987, she starred in the comedy Summer School as the pregnant student and a year later, she played Meg Penny in the horror remake The Blob, a role for which she still gets recognized. She is also a musician and was lead singer for the band Fydolla Ho, which toured throughout the US and the UK.
James Wan, the writer and director of the first Saw movie, had a crush on the actress since he was 14-year-old, and she was his first choice to play the character Amanda. She also appeared in the films sequels. Michael Bay must also have a crush on Smith, as she is a usually cast member in his big-budget summer movies such as The Island (Scarlett Johansson), typically acting alongside fellow Bay-enthusiast Steve Buscemi.
Smith is staying true to horror movie buffs by appearing in 2008's aptly titled film Slaughter, about innocent girls who are tricked into starring in snuff films.
