Photo measures 8 x 10 in. Joanna Shimkus (born 10 October 1943) is a former Canadian actress married to the Bahamian-American actor and diplomat Sidney Poitier.
Joanna Shimkus was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, to parents of Lithuanian origin, but was brought up in Montreal, Quebec. She went to Paris at age 19, where she worked as a fashion model and soon attracted the attention of movie people on the lookout for new talent.

She made her debut in 1964, in Jean Aurel's film De l'amour. She was then noticed by film director Robert Enrico, who selected her to appear in three of his films; Tante Zita (1967), Les aventuriers (1967), opposite Alain Delon and Lino Ventura, and Ho (1968).
