This is very disturbing news for Shannen Doherty fans. The actress who was revealed in the series Charmed et Beverly Hills 90210 announced on his Instagram account that his condition was worsening. The American star revealed that she suffered from breast cancer in 2015, before announcing her remission in 2017.

Biography of Shannen Doherty – Born April 12, 1971, Shannen Doherty is an American actress. She is particularly known for her role as Prue Halliwell in the Charmed series, and that of Brenda Walsh in Beverly Hills.

Shannen Doherty is a child star: she started auditions at only 7 years old and started on television in the role of Jenny Wilder in Little House on the Prairie (she was 11), before becoming famous in Our House. She made several film appearances in the 1980s, such as in Fatal Games in 1989.

Shannen Doherty really made a name for herself in 1990, for the role of Brenda Walsh in the series Beverly Hills 90210. The series quickly became cult, but Shannen Doherty had some disagreements with the production from season 2. Considering herself the star of the show, his behavior is considered inappropriate by several members of the team. She will finally leave the series in 1994 at the end of season 4, because of her behavior (fights, drunken evenings and reflections which put the bad atmosphere on the set). His departure will put a blow to the series, which will lose 7 million viewers. Shannen Doherty will return to Beverly Hills only in 2008 for the first season of 90210 Beverly Hills: Next Generation. She also participates in the reboot of the show in 2019.

After Beverly Hills, Shannen Doherty makes appearances on television and in cinema. But she will definitely shine in Charmed, playing older sister Prue Halliwell. The series is a resounding success, the public being seduced by the three witch sisters. This series will allow Shannen Doherty to return to the front of the stage.

However, from the end of season 2 of Charmed, Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano, who plays her younger sister in the series, are cold. Relations between the two game partners deteriorate greatly during season 3, without us really knowing the reasons. Despite the presence of a psychologist on the set, the two stars continue to hate each other. They are rumored to have a fight over their place in Charmed’s promotional images. During the filming of the last episode of season 3, Alyssa Milano refuses to obey Shannen Doherty, who directs the episode. The actress then expresses her wish to leave Charmed.

Shannen Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015. After an initial battle with the disease, the Charmed and Beverly Hills actress was in remission. In February 2020, the actress announced on the set of Good Morning America that the disease had returned more aggressively in early 2019. Indeed, she would now be suffering from cancer at an advanced stage, at stage 4 to be precise: “My cancer has returned, she said, visibly upset. And that’s why I’m here. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, and I don’t think I’ve fully assimilated it. I’m petrified. I’m scared enough.” In her testimony, the actress adds that she asked herself a lot of questions: “There are days when I ask myself ‘why me?’ and then I’m like, ‘Why not me? Who else? Who else would deserve this? Nobody.’

In her testimony, Shannen Doherty also returned to the reaction of her mother and her husband, producer Kurt Iswarienko, when she had to tell them the terrible news: “My mom is very brave. My husband too, but I m worried about him”. Suffering from cancer in phase 4, the 48-year-old actress nevertheless wanted to bring a message full of hope to other patients: “Our life does not end when we obtain the diagnosis”.
