Alyssa Milano.....
Plays Phoebe Haliwell, the youngest-who has struggled and matured in the four years she has been a witch. One stormy night, in the attic of the great Victorian home she and her two older sisters lived in, she unwittingly read aloud an incantation from the rusty book of shadows, granting herself and her sisters their inheritence of witchcraft. She herself recieved the passive ability to see into the past and future, and sometimes the present itself. But her haunting power proved to be the strongest in spirit, since it takes a strong actress, let alone a strong character too handle the the gifts of being a witch and a woman...
Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Milano got her start with the national touring company of Annie. At 10, she was cast as Samantha Micelli in the long-running comedy Who's the Boss? starring opposite Tony Danza for eight years.

She has won several copyright infringement suits, and has dedicated the settlement money to the launch of a new search index on the web,, a global community bringing a safe way to get the best entertainment information on the Internet. Milano resides in Los Angeles, Calif. And spends her free time writing, attending dance classes and traveling.



Rose McGowan...
Plays Paige Matthews, the long-lost half sister of the girls, a result to the forbidden affair of Patty Halliwell, and her whitelighter Sam. Paige's ability to orb in and out of dimensions was inherited by her father, and when united with her half sisters Piper and Phoebe, after Prue died, her ability to move things with her mind awoke, only she orbs them from place to place. Adjusting to her new sisters and lifestyle has been rough, but under control. Now, we know Paige is a good witch and a good whitelighter, but what about the woman behind the orbs?

One of six children, McGowan was a citizen of the world at an early age. Raised in Italy, she spent her childhood traveling throughout Europe. She returned to the U.S. to attend high school in Seattle.

A chance trip to Los Angeles resulted in her being cast in the film The Doom Generation. Her performance in Gregg Araki's dark and stylish road movie earned her a nomination for Best Newcomer at the 1996 Independent Spirit Awards. Also in 1996, Rose appeared in Wes Craven's smash hit Scream as Sydney's (Neve Campbell) doomed best friend who met with an unseemly death under a garage door.

Since this auspicious debut, McGowan has worked non-stop. In 1997, she had the distinction of starring in four films appearing at the Sundance Film Festival: Going All the Way, Louis & Clark & George, Nowhere and the short film Seed. In 1998, Rose starred with Ben Affleck and Peter O'Toole in the feature thriller Phantoms and in the independent film Southie, which won Best Picture at the 2000 Seattle Film Festival.

She will next star in the independent film Vacuums which was co-written and will be directed by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, the duo that created the Broadway hit Stomp.

Holly Marie Combs...
Plays Piper Halliwell, married to the girl's Whitelighter Leo Wyatt, now eldest of the three after the death of Prue, and pregnant with the couple's daughter, a half-witch half-whitelighter, like Paige, and has the ability to freeze time and make objects and people-mainly evil-explode. Coming to her magic and powers as a witch, Piper was The Charmed One that basically felt negatively to being a witch, especially after big sis Prue died. After that, Piper felt that she should only continue with The Craft to save Paige from The Source, and to protect the rest of her family. But she has grown a lot, as a witch and a woman. She's toughend up a lot, and is now proud to be a witch....but lets take a look at the other sides of Piper that is Holly Marie....
Holly Marie Combs, popular with audiences for her role as teen-aged Kimberly Brock on the Emmy Award-winning series Picket Fences, returned to series television in Charmed. She most recently can be seen in Steven Soderbergh's remake of Ocean's Eleven opposite George Clooney and Brad Pitt in which she plays herself along with The WB stars Barry Watson and Joshua Jackson.

Combs was born in San Diego, Calif., and moved with her family to New York when she was 8 years old. Following her mother's footsteps as an aspiring actress, she began her career working in television commercials and print advertisements at age 10. She won her first movie role by 13, playing the daughter of Don Johnson and Susan Sarandon in the feature film Sweet Hearts Dance.

At 18, Combs got her big break starring for four seasons as the insightful daughter of parents played by Tom Skerritt and Kathy Baker in the critically acclaimed drama Picket Fences. In television movies, she has played an impressive range of starring roles, including the daughter of a murdered heiress in the fact-based Daughters, killer Diane Zamora in Love's Deadly Triangle: The Texas Cadet Murder and a rape victim in Sins of Silence.

In feature films, Combs also played a young girl propositioned by a wheelchair-bound Tom Cruise in the 1989 Vietnam War saga Born on the Fourth of July. Additional big-screen credits include Chain of Desire with Malcolm McDowell and Linda Fiorentino, and Simple Men.

Offscreen, Combs enjoys gardening and horseback riding. She lives in Los Angeles, Calif.


Shannen Doherty...
Played Prudence-Prue-Halliwell, the eldest of Piper, Phoebe, and now Paige. Weilding the powers to move things with her mind, a full-fillment of the prophecy, and the second ability to astral project, Prue was the most level-headed, calmest, sophisticated, and probably the most powerful of the three. Prue was always an "over achiever", the Charmed One who was most firm about defeating the Triad and The Source, and practicing The Craft. She overcame many obstacles too, the death of her mother, drowned by a demon, and the death of her old boyfriend, best friend, and perhaps the one guy she truly loved, Andy Trudeau. Prue Halliwell will always be remembered, and so will Shannen Doherty, who did an excellent job playing her...
First known for her starring role as Brenda Walsh on "Beverly Hills, 90210," Shannen Doherty returned to series television and teamed with Aaron Spelling again for the first three seasons of "Charmed."

Doherty was born in Memphis, Tenn., where she lived until she was seven. Her family then moved to Los Angeles, and she got her first big acting break when the late Michael Landon discovered her in an episode of "Father Murphy." He cast her at age 11 as Jenny Wilder in the series "Little House: A New Beginning." Doherty went on to star in the series "Our House" and "Beverly Hills, 90210," the show that made her a household name. She played the teenage twin sister of Brandon Walsh (Jason Priestley) on the popular Aaron Spelling drama from 1990 to 1994.

Moving effortlessly between television and film, Doherty starred with Christian Slater and Winona Ryder in the 1989 black comedy "Heathers." Her other big-screen performances include the teen comedy "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" with Helen Hunt and Sarah Jessica Parker, Ron Howard's "Night Shift," and "Mall Rats," directed by Kevin Smith.

Doherty won rave reviews for her performance as the famous "Gone With the Wind" author in the television movie "A Burning Passion: The Margaret Mitchell Story," and starred opposite Antonio Sabato Jr. in the Showtime original film "Jailbreakers," directed by William Friedkin. She also starred in the miniseries "Gone in the Night" and "Robert Kennedy and His Times," as well as the TV movies "Sleeping with the Devil," "The Ticket" and "Friends 'Til the End."
