Danneel Harris Ackles hit the Llanview scene with a bang, bringing her character, Shannon McBain, to town on March 2, 2004. Cousin to fellow residents John (Michael Easton) and Michael (then played by Nathaniel Marston) McBain, Shannon showed up after her mother's death and father's abandonment. In fact, it was John and Michael's mother who helped get Shannon transferred to Llanview U after facing expulsion at her prior college. Shannon's conniving ways had her scheming with Rex Balsom (John-Paul Lavoisier) to break up Adriana Cramer (Melissa Fumero) and River Carpenter's (Matthew Twining) teen romance. When that didn't pan out, she set her sights on Rex then was blamed for the vandalized community center aka the Love Center - one that she, along with other misfit students, built while living together in a college appointed house. It wasn't until December 2, 2004, when Shannon abruptly left town without telling her family after helping Rex hide evidence in Paul Cramer's (David Tom) murder.
So, where is Danneel now? Since leaving her first and only Daytime role behind, the actress has turned up in various Primetime appearances on series such as "Charmed," "How I Met Your Mother," "One Tree Hill," and is most recognized for her big screen role as Vanessa in three "Harold & Kumar" films. On May 15, 2010, Danneel married "Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles.
