American actress who began showbiz at age 11 on the popular television series Little House on the Prairie (1982-1983). She played on the TV drama Our House (1986-1988) and moved into the soap superstar class with Beverly Hills 90210 (1990-1994). After a few seasons she left the show amid negative publicity over her off-screen image and escapades, called "the bad girl of 90210." By the late '90s she was being cast in possessive, feisty and bitchy roles that matched her reputation.

After knowing him for two weeks and living together for that long, Doherty married four-year-younger Ashley Hamilton on 24 September 1993 and filed for divorce five months later. He was known to have a drug problem after his 1992 motorcycle accident. She also chalked up three broken engagements in the following years.

In January 1995, she signed with the Elite Modeling Agency in Manhattan though she lacked the stature and refined beauty most noted among models. In the fall of 1998, she was cast once more by Aaron Spelling in a youth-oriented drama, Charmed, in which she played a good and powerful witch.

On 12 September 1997, Doherty agreed to undergo anger-management counseling and was placed on two year's probation. The sentence stemmed from a 1996 altercation in which she allegedly broke a beer bottle on the car window of an unnamed person outside a West Hollywood bar. On 28 December 2000, she was arrested for DUI when her pickup was spotted weaving on a Thousand Oaks freeway. She refused to take a breath test and instead, had blood drawn at the county jail. On 2 October 2001, she was sentenced to five days in a work program and three years probation.

In May 2001, after three seasons, Shannen was apparently no longer Charmed by her role in the hit show and announced her departure. Though public statements declared the split one of mutual agreement, the media buzz leaned more toward a reprise of a former criticism, that she created a chaos of discord on the set.

Doherty, 30, quietly married super-middleweight boxer Richard Salomon, 33, on 25 January 2002 in Las Vegas, two weeks after they met. Nine months later they called it quits. On 15 October 2011, she married Kurt Iswarienko in Malibu.

In 1999, Doherty revealed she had been diagnosed with Crohn's disease. In March 2015, Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer, which had spread to her lymph nodes. A single mastectomy was performed in May 2016. Doherty underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy following surgery. On 29 April 2017, Doherty announced that her cancer was in remission. On 4 February 2020, Doherty announced her cancer had returned a year prior, and that she is now stage four.
