Shannon Whirry (born November 7, 1964 in Green Lake, Wisconsin) is an American actress.


She began to work primarily in erotic B-movies in the early 1990s along with other scream queens of that era, such as Tanya Roberts, Maria Ford, and Shannon Tweed. Director Gregory Hippolyte's productions of Animal Instincts I and II, Body of Influence, and Mirror Images II featured Whirry in various stages of undress in repeated scenes. Other films were Private Obsession and Playback, a Playboy production.

In the late-1990s, she moved from softcore movies into a series of roles on mainstream network television and films, including action, sci-fi and horror genres. She had a recurring role as Mike Hammer's secretary Velda in the television series Mike Hammer, Private Eye and made guest appearances on such shows as ER, Felicity, Seinfeld, V.I.P., Murphy Brown, Malcolm in the Middle and Nash Bridges.

In 2007 she appeared on a BBC TV mini-series, Nuclear Secrets, playing Kitty Oppenheimer, the wife of Robert Oppenheimer.

She also had a small role in the Jim Carrey film Me, Myself & Irene (2000).
