Molly Shannon (born September 16, 1964 in Shaker Heights, Ohio) is an American actress and writer. She attended high school at Hawken School in Gates Mills, OH and drove a light blue convertible.

Before Saturday Night Live, she had a faltering career in films. She first had a supporting role as Meg in the present day sequences in the horror film remake The Phantom of the Opera with Robert Englund and Jill Scholen - a major hit in 1989.

But Molly Shannon's major break came in 1995 when she starred in TV's Saturday Night Live where she played various parts on the comedy show and was noted for playing Mary Katharine Gallagher. After her departure from SNL, she re-focused on her film career. She reprised her Gallagher role for the motion picture Superstar and had a supporting role in Never Been Kissed both in 1999. More recently she is known for comedy films including How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Shallow Hal, The Santa Clause 2, Serendipty and Osmosis Jones.

Mentioned in CYE[edit]

  • It is stated in Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm that " ... Molly Shannon fucked two guys to death". The first was her fiance business manager during her first year at SNL ('heart explosion'); and the second being a "sound guy" on SNL. The story was recounted by Patrick O'Hara a fictional HBO media relations representative.

It's a pop culture reference claiming to state a personal fact and weird enough that it deserves a mention. Htra0497 00:43, 4th July 2007 (AET)
