Savannah Smith Boucher (born 1943) is an American actress originally from Springhill in Webster Parish in northwestern Louisiana. Her younger sister, Sherry Boucher, is a former actress who was the third wife of the late actor George Peppard.
Boucher (pronounced BUTCHER) was born to Jesse L. Boucher (1912-2004) and the former Eloise Herrington (born November 21, 1923). Her father co-owned Boucher and Slack Insurance Agency, served as mayor of Springhill from 1958-1962, and later became a successful developer. She graduated in 1961 from Springhill High School.
Though she is two years older than her sister, Boucher’s acting career did not begin until 1979, when she was thirty-six. That year, she and Sherry appeared together with Peppard in the film ‘’Five Days from Home’’. Thereafter, Sherry’s roles receded, as Savannah’s increased. That same year, Savannah appeared in the role of Joanne Rodney in Nick Nolte’s North Dallas Forty. In 1980, she appeared as Tanya Sinclair in an episode of the ABC detective series Vega$, with the late Robert Urich. That same year, she played "Zee" (for Zerelda) in the television western film The Long Riders, based loosely on the bandit Jesse James. In
