Biography

Photogenic brunette actress Shannon Woodward (also occasionally credited as Shannon Marie Woodward) entered show business courtesy of television -- while still in primary school -- and continued to amass a substantial acting resumé well into her twenties. She enjoyed recurring and/or guest-starring roles on such primetime series as Malcolm in the Middle, Boston Public, and Cold Case, but attained broadest recognition and exposure for her portrayal of high schooler Di Di Malloy, the daughter in a family of con artists, on the way-offbeat FX network series The Riches. In 2008, Woodward signed on for a supporting role in the big screen teen-oriented shocker The Haunting of Molly Hartley. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
