Simmons, daughter of iconic Kiss bassist Gene Simmons, appeared on “Family Jewels” for seven seasons and later co-starred opposite her mother Shannon Tweed on W Network’s short-lived unscripted series “Shannon & Sophie.” She also recently appeared as a contestant on Fox’s competitive singing series “X Factor” and is currently in production on the film “Urban Myths.” CAA, The Characters Talent Agency and Stone Village Management represent her. 13, 2015 Anna Kendrick continues her streak of musical roles with this big-screen adaptation of Jason Robert Brown's beloved Off-Broadway hit.

While not many brothers and sisters would love the idea about having each other as a roomie, the Simmons siblings are particularly close and even went to Coachella Music Festival together earlier this month.
