Shannon Michelle Wilsey (October 9, 1970 – July 11, 1994), commonly known by her stage name of Savannah, was an American pornographic performer, starring in more than 100 pornographic videos during her career. One of the most prominent adult-industry models of her time, she achieved notoriety within her short (1990–1994) career due to her on-screen presence and personal life. In January 2002, AVN ranked her at #19 on their list of the top 50 porn stars of all time.

Wilsey reportedly took her stage name from Savannah Smiles, a 1982 movie she enjoyed.

Wilsey was introduced to the adult film industry by pornographic actor and director Rex Cabo. She signed an exclusive contract with Vivid Entertainment in 1991. She began using drugs and spending large amounts of money, and she reportedly had severe financial troubles despite her substantial income. She also garnered a reputation for being temperamental, leading Vivid to sever its association with her in 1992.

Wilsey became involved in a long-term relationship with fellow pornographic actress Jeanna Fine, with whom she later claimed to have fallen deeply in love. She also had relationships with musician Gregg Allman, comedian Pauly Shore, bassist Billy Sheehan, guitarist Slash, and Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe.

Wilsey committed suicide in 1994 by shooting herself after a car accident. After her death, Bill Margold founded Protecting Adult Welfare (P.A.W.), a non-profit organization that provides counseling for adult performers in need.
