Alyssa Milano literally grew up in front of the world on ABC's long-running comedy "Who's the Boss." For eight years, she brought the character of "Samantha Micelli" to life on the top-rated series. After the show completed its' last season in 1992, she continued to hone her talents on both the big and small screen. After two seasons playing "Jennifer Mancini" on the hit Fox show "Melrose Place," Milano re-teamed with Spelling Television last year in The WB series "Charmed." Now in its second successful season, Alyssa stars with Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs, as one of three San Francisco sisters who discover they are Witches with magical powers. "Charmed" series debut had the highest Nielsen rating of any premiere on The WB. (Alyssa Bio copied from The Official Alyssa Milano Page.)
Phoebe Halliwell grew up with her sisters, Prue and Piper, being looked after by their grandmother, Grams. Her mother died when she was 2. Throughout her teens and early 20's, Phoebe became very rebelious, and when Grams died she moved to New York. Failing to make ends meet there, she moved back in with her sisters, who now inherited their Grandmother's Manor, and discovered the Book of Shadows which gave them their power. Phoebe gained the power of Premonition, and later gained the ability to Levitate herself. Phoebe is the free-spirited of the trio, and is now the middle sister.
