Talented actress Shannen Doherty: "Cancer does not scare me, frightens the unknown"
If you were born at the turn of the 80's and 90's, then yourchildhood probably went through watching the popular at the time American TV series. There was a time when the covers of all the notebooks featured actress Shannen Doherty - either with the cast of the series "Beverly Hills 90210", or as one of the mighty enchanted. But very few people know how the career of the actress began and that she was waiting for her after leaving one of the most cult serials of the beginning of the century.
Shannen Maria Doherty was born on April 12, 1971in Memphis, Tennessee. Despite the fact that the actress's family had nothing to do with cinema, Shannen played her first, though episodic, roles at the age of 10. The first time the actress received a permanent role in a year, not afraid to go to the casting of the then sensational series "A Little House on the Prairies". After that, the series "Our Home" appeared, in each series of which Shannen Doherty was invariably present, the films "Alf loves mystery" and "The Girls Want to Have Fun". In the latter actress played with no less famous and beloved viewers Sarah Jessica Parker.
A huge success came to the actress in 1990 withthe role of Brands Walsh in the popular series "Beverly Hills 90210". The audience loved Brand, and their love was expressed in a variety of awards, which Shannen was nominated for. But colleagues on the set could not say the same thing - playing with Shannen was not easy. In the end, in 1994, after listening to a lot of requests and complaints from young artists, Aaron Spelling made the final decision. Brenda Walsh went to study in London, and the actress left the series.
Despite her character, Shannen did not stopto be a talented actress. Probably, therefore, four years later, Spelling again invited Doherty to his series, this time - "Charmed." The creator of the series did not doubt the choice, because the actress perfectly blended into the trio with her filmies Holly Mary Combs and Alice Milano, and even entrusted her with the role of director in several series. But the sad story was repeated: during the shooting of the third season, after the scandal with Milano, Shannen said that she wants to leave the show once and for all. That's why her heroine Prue had to go not to London, but to the "other world". Many fans hoped to see her at least in an episodic role, because the connection with the other world for the third season in the enchanted had already been established. But Shannen kept her word and did not appear in any more series.
Many fans are wondering what is going on in Shannen's life now?
Now Doherty is increasingly trying himself in the rolethe director. She has already had several reality shows, the last of which, a travel show, is working with her "enchanted" sister Holly Mary Combs.
Shannen lives with her husband, photographer KurtIvarinko, and pets. One of her pets she owes her life - it was the dog named Bowie who was the first to discover cancer in Shannen Doherty. Bowie climbed in her arms to the hostess and sniffed her breasts, but the actress did not attach importance to these actions until she heard her diagnosis. It happened only in 2015, but, according to Shannen Doherty, cancer could be diagnosed a year before. In 2014, the actress was left without insurance through the fault of the insurance company. While the documents were being restored, in the body of Shannen Doherty, the cancer spread more and more.
Now the actress undergoes chemotherapy, whichplans to finish in a few weeks. She is surrounded by care and support of family and friends, as well as fans. Shannen herself is trying to provide support to those who go through the same thing as she. In her account in Instagram, the actress puts photos during the procedures.
- Interest in the profession of actress Shannen showed only after moving to Los Angeles at the age of eight. Before that the girl loved equestrian sport and dreamed of taking part in the Olympic Games.
- Despite the huge workload, Shannennever dropped out of school, but, on the contrary, treated her very responsibly. The actress herself says that her graduation marks allowed her to enter the best universities in the country, but she chose a different path.
- Leaving the Charmed, Shannen never promisedto return to the TV series. But after years the actress not only reconciled with Alice Milano, but also began to travel to various conventions dedicated to the Enchanted.
- As Shannen Doherty herself says, cancer is not so terrible as a terrible unknown. There are no guarantees that chemotherapy or surgery will help, but the actress, her family and friends are hoping for the best.
