Shannon burst onto the scene last summer with her scene stealing, fan favorite  role of “Barb” on the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” which she was nominated for an Emmy for.  She has not stopped working since, being straight offered a recurring role on the  CW series “Riverdale” for Greg Berlanti, being hand-picked by Melissa McCarthy to work alongside her in her upcoming New Line feature Life of the Party, booking a lead role in BroadGreen’s WISH UPON opposite Joey King, and most recently a starring vehicle in Black Label Media’s upcoming feature SIERRA BURGESS IS A LOSER as ‘Sierra.’ She just joined Jason Katims’ highly-anticipated NBC series RISE opposite Josh Radnor.  The Guardian named Shannon one of the break-out stars of 2016
