BACKGROUND: We’ve watched her grow up, but we’ve never seen her dance. Shannen Doherty is a TV icon known throughout the world. She soared to fame as everyone’s favorite troubled teen twin Brenda Walsh on the popular television series Beverly Hills, 90210 and later as the bewitching Prue Halliwell on Charmed. All this came after beginning her career at 11 years old starring as Jenny Wilder in Little House: A New Beginning.
Over the course of her career, she has appeared in numerous made-for-TV-movies, television series and films including Heathers and Mallrats. Shannen later went on to produce and star in her own reality show, Breaking Up With Shannen Doherty, for the Oxygen Network in 2006.
Recently, Shannen reprised her role as Brenda Walsh on the CW’s 90210 and completed filming the Hallmark made-for-TV-movie Growing the Big One. She is also the author of the upcoming book Bad Ass from publisher Clarkson Potter.
We can’t wait to see this talented actress take on her latest role as a dancer on our stage. Wonder if the judges will have a special paddle for her with a 90210 on front.
