“I went to broadcasting school before I met Rob. I wanted to do characters for animation. I wanted to do voice-overs. I was also sort of exploring maybe becoming a VJ or being some sort on-camera personality.” Sheri Moon Zombie
Dancer and model-turned-actress Sheri Moon Zombie, the wife of actor, director and musician Robert Cummings (aka Rob Zombie), has appeared in every music video for Rob Zombie's solo albums and films, most notably as Baby Firefly in "House of 1000 Corpses" (2003) and the sequel "The Devil's Rejects" (2005). She also could be seen in "Toolbox Murders" (2003), "Halloween" (2007), and "Grindhouse" (2007; segment "Werewolf Women of the SS").
Next, Sheri will provide the voice of Suzi X in "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto," an adult animated comedy based upon the comic book series created by Rob Zombie, and will star in "Tyrannosaurus Rex," also directed by her husband.
“I have four [tattoos]. One is a devil, an angel and a heart that says 'Rob.' One is a cover-up of flowers on my back shoulder. On the inside of my wrists I have purple/yellow skull and crossbones.” Sheri Moon Zombie
This 5' 10" scream queen, who was one of Maxim's "Hottest Women of Horror Movies,” appeared in the December 2005 issue of Playboy. She owns a clothing line called Total Skull.
“That I was a stripper, that one kind of pissed me off. I was never a stripper. I think it got misconstrued because I am, I was and still am, a dancer. I would choreograph the numbers, make the costumes, and dance on tour with Rob. I think people hear the word dancer and have the association stripper. When all the press initially came out for ‘The Devil's Rejects,’ it was in some national newspapers. I was just like, 'Oh great. Of course it's in my hometown newspaper.' I don't want people reading that.” Sheri Moon Zombie (on the craziest accusation)
Childhood and Family:
On September 26, 1970, Sheri Lyn Skurkis, who would later be popular as Sheri Moon Zombie, was born in San Jose, California. Raised in Connecticut, Sheri, nicknamed Kitty and Kitty Moon, moved back to California after graduating from Plainville High School.
“Rob and I met in 1993 at Toad's place in New Haven, CT. I was introduced to him by a mutual friend. It was love at first sight and we haven't been apart from each other for more than 13 days since!” Sheri Moon Zombie
After 12 years of dating actor, director and musician Robert Cummings (Rob Zombie; born on January 12, 1965), Sheri eloped with him on Halloween in 2002, ten days before their planned wedding date.
“If I wasn’t an actress, dancer or designer, I have absolutely no idea what I would be doing with my life. Maybe making cupcakes and cookies and selling them. I make yummy ones!” Sheri Moon Zombie
The Devil's Rejects
“I've been with my husband Rob (Zombie) for about 13 years, I go on the road with him and I work on tour, dancing on stage during the shows. But when I was a kid, of course I wanted to be famous, but I just never pursued it. I actually wanted to do voice-overs, like cartoon voices or something.” Sheri Moon Zombie
A dancer and model before meeting husband Rob Zombie, Sheri Moon Zombie has appeared in every music video for Rob Zombie's solo albums. In 2003, she made her film debut in the exploitation horror film written and directed by Rob Zombie (in his directorial debut), "House of 1000 Corpses," playing Baby Firefly, a member of a sadistic serial killer family. She would later reprise her role in the sequel, "The Devil's Rejects" (2005), which won her a Fangoria Chainsaw Award.
“Well, Baby's so much fun to play. I mean, especially in ‘Devil's Rejects.’ There's moments where she's so light and then a flip of a switch, you see the evil in her eye. That was so fun, to turn it on and off like that, for me.” Sheri Moon Zombie
In 2003, Sheri had a cameo role as Daisy Rain in Tobe Hooper's remake of the 1978 film, "Toolbox Murders," starring Angela Bettis and Juliet Landau. In 2007, she portrayed Eva Krupp in the segment "Werewolf Women of the SS" of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's double feature "Grindhouse," also featuring Rose McGowan, Josh Brolin, Naveen Andrews, Bruce Willis, Kurt Russell, Rosario Dawson, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. She also co-starred with Malcolm McDowell in Rob Zombie's remake of the 1978 slasher film "Halloween," portraying Michael Myers' (played by Tyler Mane) mother Deborah. That same year, she was named by USA Today as one of today's top “Scream Queens.”
“There are so many people I would like to work with. Let’s go with Gene Wilder in some kinda comedy. I like Goldie Hawn. I would love to work with her.” Sheri Moon Zombie (on who she would like to work with)
Sheri recently guest starred as a nurse in an October 2008 episode of Showtime’s comedy series starring David Duchovny, "Californication." She has completed her latest film project, "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto," an adult animated comedy based on the comic book series created by Rob Zombie in which she voiced the title role's sexy sidekick and sister, Suzi-X.
“I see him from the beginning when he just starts writing, so I'm sort of there throughout the whole process, but he really has an eye and he can see the end product, which none of us could see because it's not our vision. He really follows through. As far as an actor working with him, I really don't get special favors. I think he treats each actor equally, but on an individual basis because everyone has different personalities. I think for him to get what he wants, he maybe has to coddle somebody but for another actor, he may just say, ‘Okay, do it like this,’ and then they'll go and do it. So each person is dealt with their own deck of cards.” Sheri Moon Zombie (on working with Rob)
Sheri is currently working on Rob Zombie's upcoming horror/action film, "Tyrannosaurus Rex." She is also busy running her own clothing line called Total Skull.
“Total Skull represents a total sense for what cool chicks and rockin dudes like to wear. Total Skull is for those people. People that like to rock; total rock.” Sheri Moon Zombie
