Sheree and her family moved to Colorado when she was nine years old, where she attended Fairview High School. After that, she enrolled at the University of Colorado – Boulder, graduating with a degree in fashion merchandising and business.
She then started working on fashion shoots in Denver, actually being mistaken for a model by a photographer, and soon she signed a contract with a modeling agency in New York. Soon she started appearing in commercials, which only increased her net worth, exposure and her popularity as well, so that she quickly moved to acting, and made her debut in the film “Velvet” (1984), and the following year starred in “Fraternity Vacation”, and “Crimewave”. Her net worth was well established.
In 1986 she was selected for the role of April Stevens in the TV series “Dallas” (1986-1991), which in no time became her breakout role, and it certainly increased her net worth by a large degree. After the show ended it became quite easy for Sheree to land new roles, and in 1993 she was selected for the role of Alex Cahill in “Walker, Texas Ranger” (1993-2001), next to Chuck Norris. While the show lasted she made a few more appearances, including in the films “Hellbound” (1994), and “Past Tense” (1994), while also appearing in “Walker Texas Ranger 3: Deadly Reunion” (1994). Her next role was in the film “Birdie and Bogey” (2004), and the following year she featured in the film “Mystery Woman: Game Time” (2005), while also reprising her role of Alex Cahill in “Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial By Fire” in the same year. After that she was the lead role in the action thriller flick “Killing Down” (2006), with Matthew Tompkins and Natalie Raitano, and in 2007 she starred in “Anna`s Storm”, all of which increased her net worth by a large margin.
Sheree returned to acting in 2011 with a role in the film “The Gundown” with Peter Coyote and Andrew W. Walker, and until 2015 she appeared in such films as “Easy Rider 2: The Ride Home” (2012), “Dug Up” (2013), “A Country Christmas” (2013), and Jail Wagon” (2014), among others, all of which added a substantial amount to her net worth. Most recently she was cast in the role of Miss Daisy in the film “Driving Miss Daisy” (2016), next to Clarence Gilyard, with whom she had starred in “Walker, Texas Ranger” TV series.
Thanks to her skills, Sheree has received several nominations and awards, including the Pop Culture Award for her work on “Dallas”. Also, she received several Soap Opera Digest Award nominations in different categories, also for the TV series “Dallas”.
Regarding her personal life, Sheree was married to Paul DeRobbio from 1991 until 2004; the couple had two children before their divorce. Sheree is a well-known philanthropist, supporting several organizations, including the The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Wings for Life, White Bridle Humane Society and Trial of Tears Remembrance Motorcycle Ride, among others.
Best known by the public for her starring roles as April Stevens-Ewing on Dallas (1978) and as Alexandra "Alex" Cahill-Walker on Walker, Texas Ranger (1993).
Her two regular TV characters, "April Stevens-Ewing" (Dallas (1978)) and "Alex Cahill-Walker" (Walker, Texas Ranger (1993)) both met deaths by gunshot. April was shot while being rescued from terrorists on her honeymoon to Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) and died shortly afterward. Alex was shot in the courthouse at the end of the Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire (2005) reunion movie. She was wounded in the chest, fell to the floor and was shown apparently dead (wound was dead center) in the closing shot of the movie. (Walker (Chuck Norris) had just left the courthouse to investigate something and was--for the first time--not there to save her).

[Of Chuck Norris]: Chuck has always been a Christian and it became important to him to give that message out. He absolutely created some shows that were very spiritual and Christian based.
[on her on- and off-screen relationship with Chuck Norris, who played Cordell Walker]: Chuck is exactly who you would expect him to be. He is a proud American, he is a Texan, he is one of the most stand-up human beings, and an American, drugs out of America, he has his foundation for teaching inner-city kids, he's just a great guy!
I can eat like a truck driver. I went out with a guy once who said, 'I like a woman who eats. I don't trust them if they don't.' I remember thinking, 'I know there's a compliment in there somewhere-where's the dessert tray?'
[When defining Dallas (1978), as the groundbreaking series]: When you're having that much fun, and you have that many viewers, and you know, you're just doing something outrageous that the whole world is watching.
[When she became a model in New York who displayed plenty of Horatio Alger pluck]: One time I had laryngitis and I went to several auditions carrying an Etch-A-Sketch. They'd tell me to state my name and I'd break out the Etch-A-Sketch and spell it out.
