With rumors that this may be the last season of Charmed
, fans are eagerly waiting for what Alyssa Milano
will come up with next. Born and raised in Brooklyn to Italian-American parents, Milano started acting on the stage in a national tour of "Annie" at the age of eight.
She rose to teen stardom as the tomboyish Samantha Micelli on the ABC sitcom Who's the Boss
, which ran from 1984-1992. Never really making the transition to feature films, she appeared in sleazy made-for-TV movies, provocative ad campaigns, and nude photographs. In one of her more prominent TV performances, she portrayed Amy Fisher in Casualties of Love: The Long Island Lolita Story
on CBS in 1993.
Her few feature film credits include the quirky romantic comedy Hugo Pool

on FOX for the 1997-1998 season before moving over to the WB for Charmed, co-starring Shannen Doherty

before embarking on a series of other well-publicized celebrity relationships.
Since the popularity of Charmed, she's appeared in major television ad campaigns and the comedies Kiss the Bride
, Buying the Cow
, and Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star
