Bio

Shoshannah Stern is an American actress best known for her television roles as Megan in Weeds (2005-2006) and as Bonnie Richmond in Jericho, from 2006-2008.

Stern, along with her brother and sister, represents the fourth generation of a deaf family. She grew up in Fremont, California, attending the California School for the Deaf, where her parents worked and her two siblings also attended.

Stern attended Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., the only liberal arts university for deaf people in the world. There she pursued her love of theatre, winning numerous awards for her performances.

During the winter recess of her senior year at Gallaudet, she was asked to audition for a guest-starring role in the series Off Centre. She flew to Los Angeles and subsequently won the role.

This led to guest-starring roles in Providence, Boston Public, ER, and The Division.

With her recurring role on Weeds and lead role in Jericho, Stern currently holds the distinction of being the only deaf actor in history to have significant roles in two primetime television series during the same season.

On the stage, Stern originated the role of Susan in Open Window at the Pasadena Playhouse. Her feature film credits include The Last Shot.

Stern was born in Walnut Creek, California.
