Biography for Holly Marie Combs

Holly moved to New York at the tender age of 7. Already her stunning looks had turned heads, resulting in jobs in print ads and commercials. Soon these experiences lead to a desire to act, a dream shared by Holly's mother, who herself was only 24. After a few bit parts Holly landed a lading role as Kimberly in TV drama "Picket Fences" (1992). This show ran for 4 years, winning Holly critical acclaim and a Young Actors award. After the show ended Holly starred in more roles in TV movies, enjoying her marriage and career success. This wasn't to last, in 1997 she divorced husband Bryan Travis Smith, and yearned for more challenging roles. Then in 1998 Holly's good friend Shannen Doherty told her about a new television show based around three sisters who happen to be witches, who save the world from evil. Holly auditioned for the middle sister, won the role, and is now known world wide for her portrayal of Piper Halliwell in the WB smash hit show "Charmed" (1998). Holly now lives in Burbank with her husband and her son, 'Finley Arthur Donoho' .
