Bio

Actress, producer, model & inspirational speaker, Shannen Fields was born and raised in a small south Georgia town where life was simple and sweet. Despite those small town roots, Shannen’s childhood dreams and desires were to do something in life much larger than her.

In 2006, Shannen’s dreams were realized in her feature film debut Facing the Giants, where she played the lead female role Brooke Taylor. The movie was released in 441 theaters across the United States by Sony Pictures through Provident Films and Samuel Goldwyn Films. After the opening weekend, Facing the Giants was the #1 ranked movie in theaters by Yahoo movie users. Facing the Giants also had a theatrical run that lasted for 17 weeks and sold around 3 million DVDs that were distributed in 57 countries around the world in multiple languages.

In 2009 Shannen had the privilege of traveling to Australia to film Suing the Devil alongside accomplished actor Malcolm McDowell. While filming “Down Under” Shannen gained experiences and memories that she will carry for a lifetime.

Shannen has appeared in nearly a dozen films such as Rumors of Wars (with Eric Roberts), Let the Lion Roar (starring Kevin Sorbo, Stephen Baldwin and more), Love Covers All, The List and many others.

Shannen also teamed up with Bearfruit Films as co-executive producer of the heartwarming redemption family drama The Griddle House where she also played the role of Grace. The film is centered around adoption and is a must see for the entire family.

Most recently, Shannen plays one of the lead roles in the powerful pro-life feature film Order of Rights along side Emma Elle Roberts (Gracia) & Ben Davies (Courageous)

In addition to her love for acting & producing, Shannen has a heartfelt passion for speaking into the lives of women of all ages. As an inspirational speaker, she seeks to uplift, encourage and challenge them to be the person “now” they want to be tomorrow. Shannen serves as a speaker for various churches, schools, womens’ and young girls’ events and outreach groups.

Shannen has been married to the love of her life since 1991, faithfully cheering on her Head Football Coach husband and two children as a wife and mom. She is quoted as saying, “This is the best role I could ever play.” Additionally, Shannen serves on the National Cheerleading Board for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and her family passionately supports the Holt International Children’s Services organization. Shannen is also the face of Satellite Republic Coffee Co, a non-profit organization that is making a difference in the lives of orphaned children around the world (http://satelliterepubliccoffee.com/).

A few of Shannen’s favorite verses are:

Psalms 37:4 – “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

Jeremiah 33:3 – “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

Jeremiah 29:11 – “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
