Shawnee Smith was a daughter of James H. Smith, a financial planner and former US Air Force pilot, and Patricia Ann, an oncology nurse. Her parents moved to California when she was one, and divorced when she was two. Smith went to Ranchito Avenue Elementary School in Panorama City, Los Angeles, and later to the Madison Jr. High in North Hollywood. Shawnee matriculated in 1987 from the North Hollywood High School.
When still a child, Smith began acting on stage in “A Christmas Carol”, and made her television debut in a McDonald’s commercial in 1978. In 1982, Smith had her first movie role in John Houston’s Oscar-nominated adaptation “Annie” starring Aileen Quinn, Albert Finney, and Carol Burnett. After appearing in a few TV series, Shawnee had roles in “Not My Kid” (1985), “Crime of Innocence” (1985), and “Iron Eagle” (1986). Her net worth was well set.
In 1986, she played Sonia Russell in nine episodes of “All Is Forgiven”, and the next year secured a part in Carl Reiner’s “Summer School” with Mark Harmon, Kirstie Alley, and Robin Thomas. By the end of the ’80’s, Shawnee starred in “I Saw What You Did” (1988) and Chuck Russell’s “The Blob” (1988).
