The actor has a fully grown daughter already, and she took to social media to share a sweet image of them both in honor of Father's Day. 


Shannon Amos, the daughter of veteran actor John Amos, may be all grown up, but she is certainly still her daddy's little girl, if a recent Instagram post is anything to go by. 

On Father's Day, Shannon took to the popular social media site to share a sweet photo of herself and her famous father, and to send him a sweet message as well. 

"Happy Father’s Day Daddy @officialjohnamos ! Thank you for being one of my greatest teachers!" she captioned the lovely photo, adding a number of appropriate hashtags to the post. 


In the image, the screenwriter was wear a pair of dark blue jeans, a pair of brown suede boots, and a camel colored jacket. 

She is leaning into her father's shoulder as he leans his arm over her shoulder. 

John, who is best known for his role as James Evans Sr. in Good Times, is wearing a pair of black jeans, a black jacket, and a red and black striped scarf. He also wore a broad-rimmed hat. 


While Shannon is not an actress, she has still been inspired by her father's career in Hollywood to get involved in the film industry. 

Shannon was just a teenager when her father started taking her with him to meetings with directors, producers, and entertainment companies. He had wanted her to learn the business side of Hollywood, and made sure she was listening. 

When she completed her high school education, she landed an internship with Director Spike Lee on his film Mo Better Blues, her first experience in the production field before she entered college. 


During her freshman year, she was hired as a production assistant on MTV's first hip-hop show Yo! MTV Raps, resulting in her dropping out of college. 

She later moved to Washington, in the hopes of landing a job at BET. She became a producer at America's Most Wanted, and worked her way up to show creator and director. 

At one point, she decided to dabble in music production as well, and produced music videosfor artists like Snoop Dogg, Jodeci, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. 


Once she found success in the industry, she moved on to Warner Bros., where she ended up contributing to major motion pictures like Harry PotterBlood Diamond, and The Bucket List

Since then, she has built her own production company, Afterglow Multimedia, LLC, where she produces digital and TV content to networks such as TV One, ESPN, BET, MTV, All Def Digital and All Def Music.
