Copy for Shannon Elizabeth: We first got to know her as the hottest foreign exchange student in cinematic history in the teen classic “American Pie” and it’s sequel. Subsequent roles in “Love Actually” and “Silent Bob and Jay Strike Back” did little to distract us from her mutual love affair with the camera, but little did we know that Shannon Elizabeth’s true passion was protecting animals. Her nonprofit organization, “Animal Avengers”, hasĀ blossomed from a CA-cased shelter to an internationally-known organization that tackles big-league issues like animal poaching, a journey that has taken Shannon all the way to her new home in South Africa. We caught up with the former “Nadia” to chat about her life-altering changes, how she’s making an impact in her new culture, and where acting fits into her life these days.
