Goddaughter of Hollywood veteran Jon Voight, Skyler Shaye had a recurring role on the WB’s short-lived revival of the sitcom "Family Affair" in 2002 before appearing in the films Manhood (2003) and SuperBabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004). The 5' 4" tall actress, who has appeared in "Grey's Anatomy" and "Veronica Mars," will soon be seen alongside Voight in the upcoming films Bratz: The Movie (she will portray Cloe), and the thriller The Uninvited. In 2003, Skyler formed her own Production Company called Skye Entertainment.
Childhood and Family:
Into a show business family, Skyler Anna Shuster, nicknamed “Sky,” was born on October 14, 1986 in Los Angeles, California. Her godfather is Hollywood veteran Jon Voight, biological father of Angelina Jolie.
During her offs, Skyler enjoys working out, swimming, going to the movies and shopping. She currently lives with her family in Los Angeles.
Goddaughter of Oscar winner Jon Voight, Skyler Shaye first appeared on the silver screen at age 10 playing a ghost in director Gregory Gieras' independent horror/thriller The Whispering (1996). She would return to the screen at age 16 on the WB’s short-lived revival of the sitcom "Family Affair," playing the recurring role of Sutton Ramsey.
The following years, moviegoers could see her in writer-director Bobby Roth's comedy Manhood (2003; starring Nestor Carbonell, John Ritter and Janeane Garofalo) and in Bob Clark's comedy film SuperBabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004), a disappointing sequel to the 1999 film Baby Geniuses in which she co-starred with godfather Voight. She also reunited with writer-director Bobby Roth, appearing as blonde girl at library in his 2005 movie, Berkeley.
Meanwhile, Skyler was spotted as a guest in an episode of ABC's Emmy and Golden Globe-winning primetime medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," CBS' crime drama "Criminal Minds" and UPN (now The CW) critically-acclaimed teen drama/mystery-neo-noir series "Veronica Mars." He also appeared with godfather Voight in Q. Mark's action/thriller, The Legend of Simon Conjurer (2006).
Skyler will soon wrap Bratz: The Movie, an upcoming live-action feature film helmed by Sean McNamara. In the film, based on the wildly popular fashion doll line with the same name by MGA Entertainment, she will portray Cloe. Currently, she is filming Ian McCrudden's forthcoming thriller film, The Uninvited, alongside godfather Voight.
Skyler, whose parents worked in showbiz, formed her own Production Company, Skye Entertainment, in 2003.
