Shannon Kane stars in "Hollywood Heights" on Nick at Nite as Traci. On the big screen, Kane recently starred in "Madea's Big Happy Family," alongside Tyler Kane, Bow Wow and Loretta Devine.

Shannon Kane received the Breakthrough Actress Award from the 2010 Capri International Film Festival for her stunning performance in Antoine Fuqua's "Brooklyn's Finest," opposite Richard Gere and Don Cheadle. Last year, Shannon relocated to Los Angeles to continue her starring role as Natalia, the daughter of 'Jesse' on the popular daytime drama "All My Children." She will next be seen in Sony Pictures' "SWAT: Firefight" opposite Giancarlo Esposito and Gabriel Macht for which she had to attend rigorous boot camp training and is proud to have survived. She recently completed filming "The Collection" which is directed by Marcus Dunstan, writer of the "Saw" franchise.

Raised by her mother in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Shannon only met her father two years ago. The pair is in the process of developing their relationship and making up for the lost years. In high school, Shannon was an honor student who always felt on the outside because she was one of the few minorities in her high school. She excelled in sports, predominantly basketball, and studied jazz and ballet while also teaching dance at a local studio. She participated in the "Education for the Arts" program and was honored with the Gilmore Scholarship for Dance, which enabled her to attend Western Michigan University. A local talent search led to Shannon signing with Elite Chicago where she quickly started her career as a print model. After graduation, Shannon moved to Los Angeles to study acting. She soon landed guest roles on series such as "Entourage" and "CSI," while supplementing her income as a local DJ. She has always loved to surround herself with music. Her idols are an eclectic mix of jazz and pop: Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, Aaliyah, Etta James and John Coltrane.

While visiting family in Florida, Shannon got a call asking her to send in an audition tape to "All My Children." With her grandmother serving as both cameraman and director, Shannon submitted her audition tape and wowed the casting director. Although Shannon did not get that first role (a recast), the "All My Children" brass remembered her when it came time to cast the new role of Natalia and Shannon was off to New York!

Shannon keeps in shape by running, swimming, and boxing. She likes to be outdoors as much as possible and loves camping. Her creative side is nourished by writing poetry, playing guitar and learning to speak Hebrew. She is progressing very well with the help of Rosetta Stone. Her new Los Angeles home is ruled by her rescued cat, Nemo.
