Despite past tension between Charmed stars Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano, the latter says their relationship is in a better place now.
Actress and activist Alyssa Milano opened up about her connection to Shannen Doherty both on the show and after – she says herself “proud of Charmed,” but still grapples with regret over how she handled tension between them during production.
“I would say we are cordial. I can take responsibility for a lot of our tension. I was feeling in competition rather than it being that sisterhood that the show was so much about. I have some guilt about my part in that.”Alyssa Milano in an interview for her new book, Sorry Not Sorry, which features essays about her life.
Alyssa Milano says Shannen Doherty’s 2015 diagnosis with breast cancer prompted her to reach out. She says she now sends her direct messages “every couple of months to check in” after Doherty announced that her cancer had returned in 2020 despite previously going into remission in 2017.
“I have respect for her. [She’s a] great actress, loves her family so much, and I just wish I could’ve felt strong enough in who I was to recognize that [back] then,”
