Shawnee Rebecca Smith (born July 3, 1969) is an American film and television actress and singer. Smith is best known for her roles as Meg Penny in The Blob (1988), Amanda Young in the Saw films, and as Linda in the CBS sitcom Becker. Smith once fronted the metal band Fydolla Ho, with which she toured the US and the UK. She was half of Smith & Pyle, a desert country-rock band, with actress Missi Pyle. She starred as Jennifer Goodson, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, on the FX sitcom Anger Management, which ended in 2014 after 100 episodes.

Biography

Smith has three children: a daughter from her marriage to photographer Jason Reposar (1998–2003), a son from her brief marriage to musician Kai Mattoon (2005–2006), and a second son born in March 2010.
Her two elder children were featured in the debut Smith & Pyle album, It's OK to be Happy. The kids are listed in the album credits as having vocals and spoken narrative tracks for two songs. An article published October 28, 2009, highlighting Smith & Pyle's small tour in West Virginia stated that Shawnee was pregnant with her third child. She gave birth to a boy in March 2010.

Smith and Jason Reposar eloped in 1998 while on vacation in Scotland due to the inability to organize a wedding. The song "Sugar," performed by her former country-rock band, Smith & Pyle, was written by Smith after her divorce from Reposar. She describes it as her break-up song that is quite different from Pyle's break-up song, "I Wish You Were Dead".

Smith was featured in Maxim magazine in June 2001. Smith expresses regret about the two Maxim photo shoots and guesses 80% of her presence on the internet comes from those two shoots alone.

Smith is a recent convert to the Orthodox Church and is in the process of making a documentary about her conversion and other aspects of Orthodoxy entitled Orthodoxy: A Love Story.

They learn via videotape that the one who sets more flesh weight on their tray will survive. Eddie cuts fat from his torso, but Simone chops off her arm, which tilts the scale in her favor; the timer expires, and Eddie is killed by the screws. While he reviews the game's footage, Detective Lt. Mark Hoffman is called to the scene by FBI Agent Dan Erickson, who found Agent Peter Strahm's fingerprints around the room.
