Born in Brooklyn, New York on December 19, 1972, Alyssa Jayne Milano is the daughter of Thomas, a film music editor, and Lin, a fashion designer.

After seeing the Broadway play Annie at the age of 7, Alyssa knew she wanted to become an actress. One year later, she made her acting debut as July in the same musical and toured for 18 months. After that time, Alyssa left Annie to star in off-Broadway productions and TV commercials.

alyssa joins who’s the boss?

alyssa milano Milano made her television debut in 1984 with her role as Tony Danza’s daughter on the popular sitcom Who’s the Boss?, which ran for eight years. And only one year into the sitcom’s run, Alyssa nabbed a small role playing Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter in 1985’s Commando.

 

While her role on Who’s The Boss? continued to garner her millions of fans and allowed her to create a best-selling exercise video in 1988 called Teen Steam, Alyssa also starred in a bunch of forgettable TV movies, including The Canterville Ghost (1986), Crash Course (1988) and Voices That Care (1991).

In 1989, a picture of Alyssa served as the inspiration behind Disney’s The Little Mermaidand was used to create the image of Ariel in the classic movie.

alyssa grows up and releases albums

alyssa milano The ’90s were a time when Alyssa wanted to shed her little-girl image and prove that she was a sexy adult woman. She did so by starring in Casualties of Love: The Long Island Lolita Story (1993) and the sexually charged Embrace of the Vampire (1994) and Poison Ivy II (1996). It worked, as popular men’s mag FHM voted her onto its 100 Sexiest Women in the World list four times.

But Alyssa didn’t stop at TV and movies. In fact, she also released five albums — entitled Alyssa (1989), Look In My Heart (1989), Best In The World (1990), Locked In a Dream (1991), and Do You See Me? (1992) — in Japan, all of which went platinum.

On the big screen, one of Alyssa’s most important roles came in 1996 when she starred alongside Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg in the surprise hit Fear (1996). Also in 1996, she appeared in To Brave Alaska, a made-for-TV flick about a couple fighting for their lives while abandoned in Alaska.

In 1997, Milano returned to television full time as troublemaker Jennifer Mancini in the primetime Aaron Spelling soap Melrose Place. She was cast as a regular for one season and became the enemy of fellow beauty Amanda, played by Heather Locklear.

alyssa milano While her role on Melrose Place was hot in 1997, Milano attended the Sundance Film Festival, where her new movie, Hugo Pool, also starring Robert Downey Jr, Sean Penn and Patrick Dempsey, premiered. At the festival, Alyssa was given the Spirit Award for women.

In 1998, Milano began portraying a witch on the WB’s Charmed (, alongside fellow witches Rose McGowan and Holly Marie CombsShannen Doherty quit in 2001 and was replaced by McGowan). She stayed on the show for eight seasons, leaving only when the show came to an end in 2006.

In January 1999, on New Year’s Day, Alyssa wed musician Cinjun Tate (lead singer for the rock group Remy Zero), but she divorced him that same year in November.

Alyssa’s major role in Charmed didn’t stop her from appearing in big-screen projects. In 2003, Alyssa starred alongside David Spade in Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, and the following year, she did voice work for Dinotopia: Curse of the Ruby Sunstone.

Alyssa also continued doing TV commercials; she was well-known as the spokesperson for 1-800-Collect and for her very provocative commercials and print ads for Candie’s perfume.

In addition, Alyssa got seriously involved in humanitarian work; in fact, she is a National Ambassador for UNICEF and she works with PETA.

Lexa Doig

Alexandra Doig, also known as ‘Lexa’, was born June 8th, 1973, to Gloria and David Doig, in Don Mills, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Lexa’s mother is Filipino, while her father is of Irish/Scottish heritage (Doig is a Scottish name), and Lexa grew up surrounded by equally mixed relatives. Lexa wrote and directed her first play at the age of six. Since this moment she wanted to become an actress. It was a Strawberry Shortcake play for school, and she gave away the lead role to her best friend.

Lexa Doig 2 Growing up, she was in as many church and school plays as she could do. She also studied rhythmic gymnastics. Though Lexa grew up in a home where they watched a lot of “Star Trek,” her parents also subscribed to the local theaters and went off to see plays regularly. They’d sometimes bring Lexa and her older brother, Ted, along, and young Lexa was especially taken with the musicals “Porgy & Bess” and “Evita.” She decided she wanted to be Porgy, as she identified with him because he was the smallest one on stage. Lexa herself is only 5’6″.

In 1991, Lexa got her first on-camera job as co- host of “Video & Arcade Top 10,” a Canadian TV show where kids competed against each other by playing video games. She hosted the show with her now close friend Gordon Michael Woolvett who later became her co-star on “Andromeda” some 10 years later. In 1994, Lexa landed her first professional acting job in “TekWar,” a TV series based on William Shatner’s novels. Since then, Lexa has stared and guest-stared in dozens of Science fiction television shows and movies. This isn’t a surprise since she is a self-labeled Science Fiction nerd and huge fan of Star Trek (TNG being her favorite).

In 2000, Lexa had not one but three roles on the hugely popular Sci-Fi series “Andromeda“. She successfully balanced her roles as “Andromeda’s” warship, hologram, and android. Andromeda was on air for 5 seasons before it ended in May of 2005.Lexa Doig 3

“Jason X”, part 10 of the classic “Friday The 13th” horror movies, was released in the Summer of 2001. In this feature film Lexa played the female lead and heroine- Dr. Rowan, leader of the research project that was studying Jason. The film was produced just before the start of the first season of “Andromeda.” In this film Lexa co-starred with now close Lisa Ryder who later went on to co-star with Lexa in “Andromeda” which started just after “Jason X” was released.

On August 2nd, 2003, Lexa married actor Michael Shanks. The couple and started dating in 2001, when Shanks guest-starred on “Andromeda” as Lexa’s on screen love affair. Around one year after their marriage, on September 13, 2004, Lexa’s and Michael’s first daughter was born, Mia Tabitha, and they have recently celebrated the birth of their second child together, Samuel David, born March19, 2006. The family resides in their native Canada, dividing their time between Vancouver and Toronto with Michael’s eldest daughter, Tatiana(age 8), their two children and two cats whose names are unknown.

Lexa also played the role as Dr. Carolyn Lam, on the hit Sci-Fi series “Stargate SG-1”. 

Currently Lexa portrays Dr. Leah Perlman on the hit TV series remake “V“.

In her spare time (which is very limited with her job as full-time Mommy), Lexa enjoys reading, rollerblading and playing RPG video games. She is a prolific internet surfer (a trait she inherited from her father) and a huge “Dungeons and Dragons” fan.

Alison Elizabeth Larter was born on February 28, 1976 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. She started modeling at the young age of 13. It was while working as a model in Italy when she met Amy Smart. Later, the two girls became roommates in Los Angeles.

Ali Larter 002 In November, 1996, Ali was on the cover of Esquire Magazine as Allegra Coleman, Hollywood’s newest Dream Girl. The editors of the magazine wanted to illustrate the hyperbole of Hollywood hype, and approached Ali to play the fictitious actress.

The hoax landed her an agent and soon Ali started guest starring on shows like “Chicago Hope” and “Just Shoot Me”. After that, she appeared twice on season two of “Dawson’s Creek”, as Pacey’s object of affection, Kristy Livingstone.

Meanwhile, Amy Smart had already appeared in several movies. She was the one who suggested that Ali should audition for Varsity Blues. The film, which starred Hollywood’s It-boy James van der Beek, became a surprise box office hit and launched the careers of people like Ali, Amy and Paul Walker. And from that moment on, Ali would be referred to as the whipped cream-bikini-girl.

She followed it up with the teen romcom Drive Me Crazy, in which she co-starred as Adrian Grenier’s sexy ex. After that she joined the cast of the House on Haunted Hill, in which she starred opposite Geoffrey Rush and Famke Janssen.

But it was her role in thriller Final Destination which earned her critical praise. She won the Young Hollywood Award for Best Breakthrough Performance Female.



Ali Larter 004Next up were supporting roles in the surprise hit Legally Blonde, starring Reese Witherspoon, and in Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. She also starred in the western American Outlaws with Colin Farrell and buddy Scott Caan, before reprising her role as Clear Rivers in Final Destination 2.

After a long quiet period, Ali is making a nice comeback. With roles in upcoming movies like Marigold and Resident Evil: Extinction, and a starring role in this the NBC series “Heroes” as Nikki Sanders, Ali’s future is looking brighter than ever before!

Elvira

CASSANDRA

Cassandra Peterson Elvira’s alter ego, Cassandra Peterson, was born in Manhattan, Kansas and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cassandra remembers being mesmerized by Ann-Margret. “I always wanted to be a dancer, ever since I saw Ann-Margret in ‘Viva Las Vegas’.” Just days after graduating from high school, Cassandra fled to Vegas where, at the age of 17, she became the youngest showgirl in Las Vegas history.

Cassandra’s desire to emulate Ann-Margret led to an evening with the legendary Elvis Presley, who saw her perform and encouraged her to pursue a singing career. Off to Europe, Cassandra toured extensively as lead singer for an Italian rock band. Eventually settling in Rome, where she became fluent in Italian, Cassandra met renowned director, Federico Fellini, who cast her in his classic film, “Fellini’s Roma”.

Returning stateside, Cassandra formed her own nightclub review, “Mama’s Boys”, which toured the national club circuit. In the late 70’s, she joined the satiric improvisational troupe, The Groundlings, which also produced such notables as Phil Hartman, Pee Wee Herman, Jon Lovitz and Julia Sweeney. There she honed her now renowned comedic skills as both a writer and performer.

Film and television appearances such as “Cheech And Chong’s Next Movie”, “Fantasy Island”, “Happy Days” and “St. Elsewhere” followed, but Cassandra recalls, “I was your typical struggling actress. I went to every audition, took a million acting, dancing and singing lessons and spent years wondering where my next meal was coming from.”

It was the fall of 1981, with the birth of her character, Elvira, that it all changed. While she has since played herself in many film and television shows including “Echo Park”, “Alan Quartermain” and “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”, Cassandra Peterson ultimately combines her numerous talents into an intriguing persona which has not only become a Halloween icon, but a “vamp” for all seasons.

Extra credit: Peterson is a longtime supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA); in a much-publicized 1991 incident, she turned down an offer to perform as an elephant trainer in the TV extravaganza Circus of the Stars.
