Shemar Moore Family


Shemar Moore with his mother Marilyn Wilson

Shemar Moore is the son of Marilyn Wilson and Sherrod Moore. His father is African-American and his mother is of Irish and French-Canadian origin, although she was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts. However, he is not the only child. Shemar Moore has 4 siblings, two brothers (Romeo Moore and Shannon Moore) and two sisters (Sheburra Moore and Kosheno Moore).

The situation with his parents became complicated as soon as he was born. That is,  his father and mother had some domestic problems and judging by the interview Shemar gave to Larry King, he was dangerous to both him and his mother.

Troublesome Past

Sherrod Moore even had to spend 4 years in San Quentin State Prison in California when Shemar Moore was a baby. During that time, his mother moved to Denmark. Furthermore, when he was four, they moved to Bahrain. Marilyn Wilson, Shemar’s mother, has a degree in mathematics and she worked as a teacher in both Bahrain and Denmark.

The family returned to the United States in 1977, his mother worked at a clinic in Chico, California, before they moved to Palo Alto.

In spite the nature of his father, Shemar Moore decided to have a father on his own “terms”. He is there to help him whenever it is needed. A few years ago, Shemar bought a house for his father, and we could see him wishing a Happy Father’s Day to his father, via social media.

His mother is a completely different story. Marilyn Wilson has done a lot for her son Shemar. She raised him all by herself, without that stronger figure of a father. And he became a good, strong man, who knows how to deal with women and be a true gentleman.

One of his personal quotes on IMBD says:” Although I have a lot of close female friends in my life, my number one is still my mom. Without her, I wouldn’t have the values that I have and see the world the way that I do today. She taught me how to appreciate and respect women. She taught me chivalry and how to love a woman and respect their feelings and emotions”.

And although he is 47 years old at the time of writing this article, he is not married and as far as we know he doesn’t have a girlfriend. But he did have girlfriends in the past. He used to date Toni Braxton, , Ashley Scott, Kimberly Elise, etc.

Everything changed when he found out that his mother, Marilyn Wilson has MS. From that moment on, he devoted his life to help her. Maybe that is the main problem for his relationships.

Moore doesn’t want to be an old dad… He said that in one of his interviews and it was transcribed and recorded by the IMDB. That being said, he does want to find that “special girl”, but it looks like he doesn’t have any luck with that.

Shemar Moore Education began in British School in Bahrain, when he was seven, and continued in Palo Alto, United States. He graduated from Gunn High School in Paolo Alto, attended Santa Clara University, majoring in communication, minoring in theater arts and did a little bit of modeling to earn something for a living. Also, during that time he was trying to be a professional baseball player but he got injured and had to find some other profession.

Shemar Moore Career made his success on TV series. He started acting back in mid 90’s and continued, improving his skill in the process.

Shemar Moore New Show

In 2005, he has started playing one of the main roles in the TV series “Criminal Minds” and he is preparing for the new show that will quite possibly change the way we are looking at him. The TV show is going to be based on the “S.W.A.T” movie from 2003 and the original TV Series from 1975.

Nevertheless, the physical part of the TV show is not going to be difficult for him and he is probably the best possible man for the job. He is constantly in the top form and we are not expecting anything less that perfection in his own depiction of the Lieutenant Dan “Hondo” Harrelson. That character was played by Samuel L. Jackson in the “S.W.A.T” from 2003. The first episode of the show is in plans for November 2, 2017, on CBS.
