Judyth Piazza chats with Shawn Richardz, Actress and Model

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)


Shawn Richardz or Shawn Mon`e Richardz was born in Bronx, New York. At a young age, Shawn was inspired by movies, television, music, and theater. Every aspect of entertainment fascinated her imagination. Her father observed her big dreams and growing desires to reach for the stars. In turn, he handed her a copy of the biography of legendary actor Montgomery Clift. From that moment on, she read about every legendary actor from Jane Russell to Clark Gable, anyone who made a name for themselves. That was the route Shawn was taking too.

Shawn got involved in theater companies and immersed herself into her craft. Being in New York City helped develop her love for the theater, which broadened her strengths leading to independent films and national film festivals. Notoriety through national commercials increased her opportunities, giving her the confidence to pursue her dreams. Conquering her goals, also included, a one-way ticket to Los Angeles.

Upon her arrival in California, Shawn immediately began working. She booked leading roles starring opposite James Russo, Dana Carvey, Holland Taylor, and Blair Underwood. She hasn`t looked back since; unless, of course to support her team the New York Yankees.

With her striking looks, trademark hair, and extraordinary and versatile talent, her New York work ethic has helped to strengthen her journey. Shawn has laughed at the title "Actress turned Model", since she has been involved in numerous modeling campaigns over the years. Commercials, hosting live events, and film and television, have all since been added to her reportage.

"In Los Angeles you are able to do it all," says Shawn. She plans on doing just that, easily and effortlessly: `Shawn Richardz is Born to Win!`
