Shannon Lee Tweed (born March 10, 1957), St. John's Newfoundland is a Canadian actress and model who has acted primarily in soft core low budget films.

Shannon 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, Shannon has primarily acted in TV series (including a guest appearance in Frasier) and B movies. Shannon is one of the best known actresses in mainstream erotica. She lives with KISS member Gene Simmons (they are not married) and they have two children. She occasionally acts with (and models with) her younger sister, Tracy Tweed.

Shannon has appeared in over 60 films over the past twenty years. Most of them seem to involve her having sex with people of various professions such as detectives, lawyers and evil geniuses. In addition to having sex, she frequently gets to beat up the bad guys while wearing figure-hugging outfits e.g. No Contest .

Shannon has played bad characters just as frequently as good characters. One memorable evil character was Electra, a kind of superhuman dominatrix intent on world domination. On rare occasions she has made it into mainstream films such as Detroit Rock City , but only in minor roles.
