Although she’s making her television series debut on Charmed, Rose McGowan has worked non-stop in feature films in a relatively short time.
One of six children, McGowan was born and raised in Italy and spent her childhood traveling throughout Europe. She returned to the United States and settled in Seattle to attend high school. A chance trip to Los Angeles resulted in her being cast in the film "The Doom Generation" for which she earned a Best Newcomer nomination at the 1996 Independent Spirit Awards. That same year she also appeared in the smash film "Scream" as Sydney’s (Neve Campbell) best friend Tatum.
In 1997, McGowan starred in four films presented at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival – "Going All the Way," "Louis & Clark & George," "Nowhere" and the short film "Seed." The following year she starred with Ben Affleck and Peter O’Toole in "Phantoms" and the independent feature "Southie," which won Best Picture at the 2000 Seattle Film Festival. In 1999 she starred in "Jawbreaker" and earlier this year starred with Brendan Fraser in "Monkeybone." She recently completed filming "Vacuums," which was co-written and directed by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, the duo that created the Broadway hit "Stomp."
On television she guest-starred in Joan Cusack’s new comedy series "What About Joan?"
McGowan currently resides in Los Angeles.
