Shannen Doherty is an American actress who rose to fame with the movie ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ (1985) where she appeared alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt. She is also a television director as well as producer and author. She started acting at a very young age and has since worked in a number of films and television shows. She is known for her works in ‘Heathers,’ ‘Our House,’ ‘Beverly Hills, 90210,’ ‘Charmed,’ and ‘North Shore.’ Though she is a well-established actress now, she had a very tumultuous career and personal life back in the 1990s. She created a ‘bad girl’ image for herself while working on the sets of 'Beverly Hills, 90210.' Many reports which surfaced during that time accused Shannen of indulging in physical fights and heated feuds with her co-stars. Shannen was also involved in some legal issues due to a brawl with a woman and some disputes with California's ‘United Bank.’ Nevertheless, with time, she learned to stay away from controversies. As far as her personal life is concerned, she is an ardent animal rights activist and has participated in numerous campaigns to raise awareness on animal cruelty. Being a very outspoken person, she has never hidden the fact that she is a Republican in an industry where majority of her co-workers are Democrats.
