Emma Shannon

Emma Shannon stars as Nyx on Disney Channel’s new series “Pretty Freekin Scary,” based on the popular book series of the same title.

Originally from Boston, Shannon arrived in Los Angeles in January 2014 to pursue her acting dream. Her first few months auditioning for her first pilot season were tough, and she struggled to book any roles. With just two days left before returning home to Boston, Shannon received some good news. She booked Little Caesars for her first commercial.

Shannon stars as the iconic Betty Rizzo in “Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies” for Paramount Television Studios and is recurring in her third season on HBO’s “The Righteous Gemstones” as young Judy Gemstone. She has had many other TV guest and recurring appearances on shows, including Pepper Duke’s best friend on five seasons of FX’s “Better Things,” “Fuller House,” Disney’s “BUNK’D” and “Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything,” and Nickelodeon’s “Henry Danger” and “Cousins For Life.” She also appeared on “black-ish,” “Teachers,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “The Conan O’Brien Show” and among others. Shannon has worked on over 15 national commercials and many voiceover projects.
