It’s been six years since Charmed stopped airing new episodes (although you can still catch your favorite reruns on WE tv!). This got us wondering — what have the Charmed Ones been up to since 2006? Here’s a look what they’ve been doing, both personally and professionally.
Alyssa Milano, Phoebe Halliwell (1998-2006)
For those of us who grew up watching Who’s the Boss? Alyssa Milano was the girl everyone wanted to be. Six years after the popular sitcom wrapped up, the actress nailed the role of Phoebe Halliwell (watch her as Phoebe here!) on Charmed, which she played until the show ended in 2006.
Since then, Milano, 39, has had some exciting developments on the personal front. She married Hollywood agent David Bugliari in August 2009, and gave birth to their first child, a son named Milo Thomas Bugliari, in August 2011. “My heart has tripled in size. I love him more than all the leaves on all the trees,” she tweeted after Milo’s birth.
Professionally, Milano appeared in 10 episodes of the show My Name Is Earl from 2007-2008. Last year, she appeared in the hit comedy Hall Pass and the star-studded ensemble flick New Year’s Eve.
Milano has her own clothing and jewelry line, TOUCH by Alyssa Milano, which targets female sports fans, and has written and blogged about her love of baseball. She is also a passionate animal rights advocate and supporter of UNICEF.
Shannen Doherty, Prue Halliwell (1998–2001)
Doherty played one of the coolest girls in TV history as Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210. But that wasn’t where her acting career began! (Check out our Top 7 Shannen List.) Two years after she left the famous show in 1994, she joined the cast of Charmed until 2001. Watch Shannen as Prue here!
In 2008-2009, she reprised her role as Brenda Walsh in the 90210 spin-off, appearing in eight episodes. In 2010, she was a contestant on the tenth season of Dancing with the Stars, but she and her partner Mark Ballas were the first couple eliminated.
Next month, 40-year-old Doherty will star in WE tv’s new reality series, Shannen Says , which follows Doherty and her now-husband, photographer Kurt Iswarienko, as they plan their wedding (with the help of David Tutera!). The show premieres on Tuesday, April 3 at 9|8c.
Rose McGowan, Paige Matthews (2001-2006)
In 2001, McGowan was cast as Paige Matthews on Charmed, after Shannen Doherty left the show.
Since then, the 38-year-old has starred in feature films including 2006’s The Black Dahlia (co-starring Scarlett Johansson) and 2007’s Quentin Tarantino-Robert Rodriguez production Grindhouse. She also appeared on TV’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Nip/Tuck. After breaking off her engagement to rocker Marilyn Manson, McGowan became engaged to Rodriguez, but the couple reportedly split in 2009. McGowan, an activist for LGBT rights, appears as a celebrity judge on the current season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Holly Marie Combs, Piper Halliwell (1998-2006)
Holly Marie Combs gave eight years and also eight great seasons to Charmed. Watch Combs as Piper here! Four years after the conclusion of Charmed, Combs joined the cast of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars as Ella Montgomery, the mother of main character Aria Montgomery. Pretty Little Liars was recently renewed for a third season; in 2012, it won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Drama.
Combs, 38, filed for divorce from her husband, former Charmed crew member David Donoho, in November 2011, citing irreconcilable differences. They have three sons together: Finley Arthur Donoho, (born April 2004), Riley Edward Donoho, (born October 2006) and Kelley James Donoho, (born May 2009).
Kaley Cuoco, Billie Jenkins (2005-2006)
The former 8 Simple Rules actress, 26, played Billie Jenkins in the final season of Charmed. Since 2007, she has portrayed Penny, the lead female character on the hit CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory; in 2012, she was nominated for a People’s Choice Award and a SAG Award for the role.
In 2011, Cuoco appeared in the children’s animated-live action movie Hop.
