Born Sheri Lyn Skurkis in San Jose, CA, Zombie grew up in suburban Connecticut listening to heavy metal and going to rock concerts. She moved back to California soon after graduating from high school but often returned to the East Coast to visit family and friends. She briefly studied broadcasting at a local college and was figuring out a way to break into voice acting when in the early '90s a mutual friend introduced her to Rob Zombie. They quickly began dating and when Zombie decided to join the horror-fantasy rock band on tour, it wasn't long before she surfaced in such WZ videos as "Feed the Gods," which was also featured in a scene from the 1994 comedy "Airheads." When the band amicably parted ways and Rob went solo, Zombie accompanied him on tour, serving as choreographer and costume designer for his intensely theatrical shows.
His decision to cast her as the title zombie in the video for his wildly successful single "Living Dead Girl" was just the first of many collaborations. In 2003, a year after the pair eloped, she made her film debut as the devilishly demonic Baby Firefly in "House of 1,000 Corpses," which revolved around Baby and her family's torture of an unlucky group of friends, and returned as the blonde hellraiser a few years later in the on-the-run sequel "The Devil's Rejects." After launching her '70s metal-inspired clothing line Total Skull in 2006, Zombie starred as a bloodthirsty were-officer in "Werewolf Women of the SS," Rob's fake movie trailer for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's gritty "Grindhouse" (2007). That same year she appeared in his well-received remake of John Carpenter's horror classic "Halloween" as Deborah, Michael Myers' despondent but forgiving mother; and briefly surfaced in the slightly less successful "Halloween II" (2009).
The late 2000s found Zombie branching out into new creative territory. After being cast as a nurse on "Californication," Zombie was featured in the animated film "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto" as Suzi X, the title hero's sultry sidekick sister. Directed by Rob and based on his comic series of the same name, the sexually-charged film took three years to make and featured the voices of Rosario Dawson, Paul Giamatti and "Devil's Rejects" actors Sid Haig and Bill Moseley. Since the film was released straight to DVD in 2009, Zombie has worked with her husband on a 2010 episode of the long-running "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002-2012) and portrayed a radio DJ who inadvertently releases a coven of witches in "The Lords of Salem" (2012).

|"I went to broadcasting school, before I met Rob. I wanted to do characters for animation, I wanted to do voice-overs. I was also sort of exploring maybe becoming a VJ or being some sort on-camera personality. But then the way things evolved with our relationship, we moved in together and he was on the road and I would go on the road with him." - from GirlsandCorpses.com, 2006|
