Biography for Shannen Doherty

Shannen Maria Doherty (born April 12, 1971) is an American television actress, best known for her work as Brenda Walsh in Beverly Hills 90210.

She first came to notice when she was cast as Jenny Wilder in Little House on the Prairie, which she followed up with roles in films such as Heathers. She was then cast as the oldest Witherspoon sibling, Kris, on the family drama Our House, which ran from 1986 to 1988.

She starred on the Aaron Spelling-produced Beverly Hills 90210 for four years, from 1990 to 1994. Although her departure from the series was reportedly acrimonious, it didn't stop Spelling from casting her in another series, Charmed. She left that series in 2001, after three years, claiming that her best work was being wasted on a show "for 12-year olds" (though rumors persist that her departure was against her will, due to a feud with costar Alyssa Milano). She hosted Scare Tactics on the Sci Fi channel until the 2004 season. She is now a regular on the series North Shore, a return to her prime-time soap roots.

Her private life has also been turbulent, with a six month marriage to Ashley Hamilton, son of George Hamilton.

Shannen posed for a nine page pictorial in the December 2003 issue of Playboy magazine.

Trivia

Couldn't reach an agreement with the producers of "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990) regarding specifics of her participation in the series finale so using edits and digital effects they removed her entirely from the next to last episode retrospective. An hour long special which included virtually every other actor in show's history.

Sentenced to anger-management counseling by the Beverly Hills Municipal Court for an incident that occurred in August 1996; she got into an argument with 22 year old Corey Hanker and smashed a beer bottle on his car window as he tried to drive away from her. [12 September 1997]

Appeared several times partially nude in Playboy magazine, one image is December 1993, others in safer sex spread in March 1994. Later posed once again on the cover of Playboy in December 2003.

Was removed from the teen soap "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990) at end of 4th season (March 1994). According to producer Aaron Spelling because of constant conflicts with other cast members and repeatedly late appearances on the set.

Infuriated William Friedkin when she failed to turn up for the first day of shooting Jailbreakers (1994) (TV) in Hollywood. Shannen, as it turned out, had just returned from Italy, where she'd raised hell by turning up late for an interview on a television talk-show. Friedkin's first reaction was to call auditions and look at 12 other actresses to take the 90210-brat's part. But then he decided to stick with Doherty.

In 1992, Shannen was a guest on "The Dennis Miller Show" (1992). She appeared on the fourth show which meant that host, Dennis Miller, was still in the process of getting used to the talk-show format. Early in the interview, she rudely asked Miller if he was nervous and went on to point out his eyebrow which was twitching nervously. This made headlines the next day and before long, Miller was routinely making an effort to lampoon her on his talk show.

Offered a role in Scream 3 (2000).

While on the set of Blindfold: Acts of Obsession (1994) (TV), she met Judd Nelson and they later became engaged.

Sentenced to either 10 days in jail or 20 days of work-release duty, three years probation, and ordered to pay a $1500 fine for drunk-driving charges. [12 June 2001]

Beat future "Charmed" (1998) co-star Alyssa Milano for the role of Rene in the cult film Mallrats (1995). [1995]

Shannen had her wages garnished by California United Bank when she was on "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990) because she wrote nearly $32,000 worth of bad checks.

Has four horses and three dogs.

Still owns a percentage of "Charmed" (1998) even though she left the show.

Dated actor Andrew Levitas [2004].

Her brief marriage to Ashley Hamilton is referenced in Mallrats (1995). Ben Affleck's character in the film is named Shannon Hamilton.

Her character on "Charmed" (1998), Prue Halliwell, was killed off in the third season finale, although it was never explained how her character truly died.

Best friend of actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Lives on a horse ranch in Ventura County, California

Family

Goddaughter is named Cooper London, daughter of Jason London.

In her family, her father Tom, works at a bank; her mother Rosa, is the owner of a beauty parlor; she also has an older brother named Sean; born 1967.

Family moved to Los Angeles when she was 7 years old.
