I work at home as a freelance writer. I enjoy reading, writing, and television.

Charmed ran for eight seasons, from 1998 to 2006. The first three seasons followed Prue, Phoebe, and Piper, three sisters who were witches fighting evil. After Prue died, their half-sister, Paige, joined them in their fight.

The CW rebooted the series in 2018. It follows three new witches.

Piper Halliwell

The middle sister, Piper, was played by Holly Marie Combs. She was married to Leo Wyatt, her whitelighter, and had two children with him, Wyatt and Chris.

Before the show, Combs was seen on several movies, including Born on the Fourth of July, Simple Men, Dr. Giggles, and A Reason to Believe, among others. During the show, she appeared in a few TV movies and shows. She wasn't seen much after the show, except in two TV movies, Point of Entry and Mistresses. That is, until she joined the cast of ABC Family's hit show, Pretty Little Liars, as Ella Montgomery, Aria's mom.

Combs appeared in a 2019 episode of Grey's Anatomy as Heidi, sister to Alyssa Milano's character, Haylee. It was a mini reunion for them.

Phoebe Halliwell

The youngest sister, Phoebe, was played by Alyssa Milano. She eventually became an advice columnist, with her column titled, "Ask Phoebe."

Milano was already a popular actress before Charmed started. She had several roles in movies and TV movies, including Old Enough, Commando, Crash Course, Where the Day Takes You, Little Sisters, Glory Daze, Deadly Sins, Fear, Below Utopia, and more. Additionally, she played in 8 seasons of the popular show "Who's the Boss?" and 2 seasons of Melrose Pace.

Since the show, she has continued to see success with many roles in movies, TV movies, and television shows. She has been in The Blue Hour, Reinventing the Wheelers, Patholgy, My Name is Earl, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, Hall Pass, Romantically Challenged, New Year's Eve, Breaking In, Mistresses, Wet Hot American Summer, Little Italy, Tempting Fate, and appeared in an episode of Grey's Anatomy alongside Holly Marie Combs.

She was part of the Netflix series, Insatiable, for 2 seasons from 2018 to 2019.

You may have also seen Milano in the Wen hair commercials.

Paige Matthews

The girls' half-sister, Paige, was played by Rose McGowan. She came into the series in the 4th season. She was half-witch and half-whitelighter, since their mother had an affair with her whitelighter. The sisters didn't know Paige existed until they met her.

McGowan had some success before the show, appearing in several movies. She was in Encino Man, Bio-Dome, Scream, Going All the Way, Nowhere, Kiss & Tell, Jawbreaker, Ready to Rumble, and The Last Stop. During the show, she continued to appear in movies, such as The Killing Yard, Strange Hearts, Vacuums, and Elvis.

After the show, McGowan appeared in The Black Dahlia, Grindhouse, Death Proof, Planet Terror, Fifty Dead Men Walking, Dead Awake, Conan the Barbarian, Rosewood Lane, and The Sound. She was also on the shows Nip/Tuck, Once Upon a Time and Chosen.

She voiced a character in one of the Call of Duty games and in an episode of Ultimate Spider-Man.

McGowan has been known in recent years for speaking out against Hollywood.

Prue Halliwell

The oldest sister, Prue, was played by Shannen Doherty. It was unsure whether her and Piper would make it after the season 3 finale, and the season 4 premiere revealed that Leo had time to save Piper, but not both of them. In reality, it was a rival between Doherty and Milano that led to her being let go from the show.

Doherty had established success before the show, appearing in the shows Father Murphy, Little House on the Prairie, Our House, and most importantly, Beverly Hills, 90210. She was also in several movies and TV movies, such as The Secret of NIMH, Night Shift, Little House, Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Heathers, Almost Dead, Mallrats, and Nowhere.

Since the show, she has appeared in the movies Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Another Day, The Rendering, Christmas Caper, Kiss Me Deadly, Burning Palms, Growing the Big One, Witchslayer Gretl, Bukowski, All I Want for Christmas, How to Make a Deal With the Devil, Back in the Day, Bethany, No One Would Tell, and Undatable John.

She was also in the shows North Shore, Mari-Kari, and 90210 where she reprised her role. She reprised her role again in the limited series BH90210 in 2019. Doherty appeared on Dancing With the Stars and had a reality show called "Shannen Says" that focused on her wedding planning.

She appeared in a season 4 episode of Riverdale in honor of the late Luke Perry, her friend and co-star from 90210.

Shannon was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She went into remission, but sadly announced in 2020 that her cancer was back and at stage 4.

Leo Wyatt

Piper's husband, and the sisters' whitelighter, Leo, was played by Brian Krause.

Krause was successful in movies before the show, appearing in Match Point, Return to the Blue Lagoon, December, An American Summer, Sleepwalkers, The Liars' Club, Bandit, Breaking Free, Naked Souls, and Mind Games. During the show, he was in Get a Job, Dreamers, Trash, 919 Fifth Avenue, and In the Blink of An Eye.

After Charmed, he's appeared in Protecting the King, Devil's Diary, Triloquist, Desertion, The Gods of Circumstances, Nowhere to Hide, You're So Cupid!, Growth, Cyrus, Ashes, Rain From Stars, Actors Anonymous, Snitch, Abeo Pharisee, Gabe the Cupid Dog, Plan 9, Coffin Baby, Poseidon Rex, Christmas for a Dollar, Rain from Stars, Red Sky, The Christmas Switch, The Studio Club, Borrowed Moments, Plan 9, Miracle Maker, Ribbons, His Double Life, Earthtastrophe, House of Purgatory, Uploaded, Haunted Maze, Be Afraid, A Woman Deceived, The Killing Pact, Party Mom, The Demonologist, Underdog, Trauma Therapy, and Retreat to Paradise, with many other titles in the works.
