Mini Bio (1)

Sheri Moon Zombie was born Sheri Lyn Skurkis. She is the daughter of Carol A. and William B. Skurkis, and has Lithuanian and Polish ancestry. She was raised in Torrington, Connecticut, from a young age. In her late teens, Sheri moved to California, but continued to spend a great deal of time in the New England state, due to education and work commitments. Throughout her twenties, Sheri was a model and a dancer, appearing in many music videos. These were mostly for her then-musician boyfriend, Rob Zombie, whom she later married in 2002 on Halloween. Sheri didn't start acting until 2002, when she landed the role of "Baby" in the horror, House of 1000 Corpses (2003), which was directed by her now-husband, Rob Zombie. This was her first role in a number of commercially successful horror flicks that he directed, including The Devil's Rejects (2005), Halloween (2007) and Halloween II (2009), as well as a brief film segment for Grindhouse (2007) called "Werewolf Women of the SS". She also had an additional role in Tobe Hooper's Toolbox Murders (2004). Her next film role is The Lords of Salem (2012), which is to be directed by Rob Zombie. Further to her movie roles, she has starred in one episode, each, of Californication (2007) and CSI: Miami (2002), the latter being directed by her husband. She has also lent her voice to a character in the animated film, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto (2009), again directed by her husband. Her early roles led to USA Today describing her, in 2007, as one of the modern era's "Scream Queens", with this colourful image still persisting in 2011. Unlike many "Scream Queens", Sheri has acquired a large male fanbase, due to certain roles allowing her to exhibit her natural beauty and shapely figure. Finally, in addition to her acting success, she has ventured into the world of clothing design, with her obvious talent finally bursting through. The range is known as "Total Skull" and includes a variety of short sleeve and long sleeve T-shirts for both men and women, as well as hats, hoodies, masks, bandanas and scarfs.

Personal Quotes (10)

Salem is such a cool little town that's very touristy. It's fun to walk around all the shops and get the feeling there.
I guess you could say the beginning of my career as an actress was when I started performing in music videos.
Nothing can shock me.
I love working out. I wake up, have my egg white breakfast and then I get on the treadmill and the elliptical. If I don't do that in the morning, I'm in a bad mood for the rest of the day. It really does release, like, some sort of crazy endorphins that gets out your bad energy. I love it. I've also done Pilates, yoga and all that kind of stuff.
I consider myself a California girl now. I moved out here when I was 17. As soon as I graduated high school, I came out to California and had a couple of tries. I mean, I moved back to Connecticut where I grew up, twice, and went to broadcasting school. But I moved back and forth. Seventeen is really young to move out of state and be on your own. I mean, I wanted to play and have fun and be responsibility-free, but eventually you have to buckle down and get a job. So I was a little wild child when I was younger.
[on her relationship with Rob Zombie]: We were together for nine years. We both really didn't want to get married. Then all of a sudden something happened and I was just like, "You know what? Maybe we should. We might as well." It was weird, but there was nothing profound about it. We planned the wedding and then we said, "No, forget it. Let's just elope and then we'll have a party here." So that's what we did. We were actually taking a walk in our neighborhood the day before [Halloween]. The wedding date was to be November 9th. We're like, "Oh god, we've been together for nine years. We should just say our vows privately." It was just like a spur-of-the-moment decision. It just happens that the next day was Halloween. We didn't do it for any spooky reasons or anything. We were not in costume. I wore a white sweater and jeans.
I read a lot of books, I do a lot of crossword puzzles, [Rob Zombie and I] watch movies on the bus. On the last tour that we did this summer, everyone wanted to watch music documentaries, so we were really into watching those. We also have, like, these big Uno championship games - we're, like, mad for Uno on the bus!
[on her 31 (2016) character]: Charly is totally a victim in this movie and she's only doing everything out of the instinct to survive, like Heidi in The Lords of Salem (2012). I think it shows that everyone has that in them and they can come out. It's kill or be killed.
The hardest thing about being on the road is getting healthy food sometimes. Everyone's a big carnivore this country and it's a fast food nation. The hardest thing about being on the road is getting good, healthy food. I don't think I've eaten McDonald's since I saw Super Size Me (2004).
I don't really feel like I want to try to sell myself or market myself to people. I don't have an agent. I don't give many interviews. I don't actively seek work. I just don't like the whole audition process that actors have to go through, God bless them. It's so demeaning and terrible for the most part. That's a big reason why I [didn't for so long]. I know there's somebody that has a website out there where you can get information. I think for the most part, things are almost right. It's sort of like the tabloids. There's a bit of information that's true, but then the rest of it is sort of fluffed up.
