Alyssa Milano is an American actress, activist, producer, and former singer who started her career as a child actor appearing on plays like 'Annie', and subsequently made her TV debut as a main cast on the ABC sitcom 'Who's the Boss?' (1984-92). In 1984, she also debuted on the big screen with a supporting role in the drama film 'Old Enough'. She appeared as the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in 'Commando' (1985).
In the following decade, to shed her 'nice girl image', she appeared in a number of risqué roles in movies like 'Embrace of the Vampire' (1995), 'Deadly Sins' (1995) and 'Poison Ivy II: Lily' (1996). She continued to act in many made-for-television and feature films, including 'Fear' (1996) and 'Hugo Pool' (1997), most of which were failures. Her recent successful films include 'Hall Pass' (2011) and 'New Year's Eve' (2011).
She returned to television with 'Melrose Place' (1997-97), and was cast as Phoebe Halliwell, one of the leads, on the series 'Charmed' (1998-2006) – which is considered one of her best roles. Her later TV appearances include 'My Name Is Earl' (2007-08), 'Romantically Challenged' (2010-11), 'Mistresses' (2013-14) and 'Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later' (2017).
