“My father is in my life, but on my terms. He wasn’t good to my mom. We lived overseas and we did that to protect the family unit. But my father was erratic and being inconsistent and doing right by my mom,” he said in an interview with Larry King.

He added, “My mother – enough was enough – he ended up spending four years in San Quentin [State Prison] when I was a baby. So now, fast forward to this day. He’s in my life. I made a decision to help him because he was in need so I bought him a place to keep him safe and I wish the best for him, but it’s up to him to live is life.”




Shemar’s father, Sherrod Moore, is African-American and his mother, Marilyn Wilson, is Irish and French-Canadian.

The actor has enjoyed much success in his life. He starred in “The Young and the Restless” from 1994 t0 2005, on “Criminal Minds” from 2005 to 2016, and on “Soul Train” from 1999 to 2003, among others.


Shemar's greatest breakthrough is becoming the lead in the hit television series, “S.W.A.T.”, in 2017.

He has won eight NAACP Image Awards, and the 2000 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role on “The Young and the Restless.”

He also received a nomination for a People's Choice Awards for his role on “Criminal Minds.”


Shemar melted hearts when he shared a video of himself dancing for his mother to celebrate her birthday while he was a guest on “The Talk.”

While promoting his upcoming show, “S.W.A.T.”, he took his mother with him to the set of the show. Shemar took to Instagram to share a video of him dancing for his mom, who turned 74 years old.
