Shannon Tweed became involved in beauty pageants at a young
age. After the Canadian wish-fulfillment TV series Thrill of a
Lifetime arranged for her to pose for Hugh Hefner's Playboy, she
gained fame as the Playmate of the Year for 1982. She was
briefly involved with Hugh Hefner at that time. Since then,
Tweed has primarily acted in TV series (including a year on the
prime-time soap Falcon Crest and a guest appearance in Frasier)
and B movies.
Shannon Tweed has appeared in over 60 films over the past twenty years. Shannon is one of the best known actresses of mainstream erotica, and she is identified with the genre of the erotic thriller--most notably her movies Night Eyes 2 & 3. Most of them seem to involve her having s-- with people of various professions such as detectives, lawyers and evil geniuses. In addition to having s--, she frequently gets to beat up the bad guys while wearing figure-hugging outfits e.g. No Contest or catfight with a nemesis. Tweed is also identified with one of the more well-known of bizarre and amusing titles in films: Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death (1989).
Shannon Tweed lives with Gene Simmons of KISS (they are not married) and they have two children. She occasionally acts (and models) with her younger sister, Tracy Tweed.
