Actress Shannen Doherty has spoken out about her cancer battle and how the disease has returned.
She was once considered a diva who was involved in a number of behind-the-scenes dramas on Beverly Hills 90210 and the original Charmed, but actress Shannen Doherty has put the past behind her.
In 2017, Shannen, best known for her roles as Brenda Walsh and Prue Halliwell announced she was in remission for breast cancer. However, she later learned that her cancer had returned and that it was Stage IV. She decided to keep the information to herself while she was worked on BH90210.
It was at this time that she was mourning the loss of Luke Perry, her dear friend and onscreen love interest from their days on Beverly Hills 90210. To pay tribute to him, she had a guest appearance on Riverdale where she played a woman whom his character, Fred Andrews had helped before being hit and killed by a car.
Shannen has come a long way since her days on Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed. She’s proven that she’s a great person who will fight for what she believes in. There’s nothing more we could have asked for. She deserves all the love in the world and we’re going to stand by her through it all.
