Hollywood legend John Amos' famous daughter, Shannon, put up her natural beauty and age-defying looks on display in her new media share while she rocked chic fashion wear.
Shannon Amos stepped out in style, sporting a refreshing makeup-free look while showing off her wholesome aura on the streets of Tulum in Mexico.
The movie executive displayed her natural beauty, showing off her flawless skin and subtle glam that had fans gushing over her.
The multimedia personality rocked her lengthy dreadlocks in a high ponytail in the one-photo post while she donned a flowing white dress tied on one side, sarong-style. She channeled a gypsy look as she rocked large wooden hoops and a few beaded bracelets.
Shannon was photographed striking a pose on the streets and standing behind a street sign that read the words, "Follow that dream." The star must have gotten her inspiration from the board as she captioned:
"Wherever you go, follow your dreams."
Shannon is the daughter of the TV legend John Amos and over the years, she has proven that she inherited her dad's creative streak. However, unlike John who thrives in front of the big screen, Shannon shows her magic behind the scenes as an executive producer.
He was told his services were no longer needed in the long run.
She is the CEO of a production company, Afterglow Multimedia LLC. Over the years, Shannon, a mom-of-one, has worked with famous networks like ESPN, BET, Turner Originals, and MTV.
Shannon takes credit for her role as a former creative director for Warner Bros. The star has a successful stint working on blockbusters like "Harry Potter," and the Oscar-winning movies, "Blood Diamond," and "Letters From Iwo Jima."
While John is proud to be the dad to the successful executive producer, it is a case of double blessings as Shannon's brother, KC Amos, is a Grammy-nominated movie maker who doubles as an actor.
While John is a veteran in the showbiz game and is glad to watch his grown children perfectly continue his legacy, he did not have it that way climbing up the ladder of success and fame.
John's career started when African-American actors and creatives were not given a wide range of opportunities in the movie industry. Despite this, he refused to budge to stereotypes or what he did not consider ideal.
In 1974, John popularized the James Evans role in "Good Times" and was a revered cast member until his exit in 1976 when his contract was terminated.
Once in an interview, the veteran star noted that there were no African-American writers on the show, and it reflected on scripts. He stated that he often disagreed with some of the plots because they were foreign to the Black community.
He was told his services were no longer needed in the long run, but John bounced back in showbiz when he displayed his expertise in movies like "Roots" and "Coming to America."
