Holly Marie Combs
A self-assured performer with a feisty onscreen persona, actress Holly Marie Combs broke through as Tom Skeritt's daughter on the critically acclaimed series, "Picket Fences" (CBS, 1992-96). Prior to her breakthrough role, Combs struggled to find her footing with bit parts in "Sweet Hearts Dance" (1988) and "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989), while making strides in TV on daytime soaps like , "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952-2009) and "As the World Turns" (CBS, 1956-2010). After four brilliant but uncertain seasons on "Picket Fences," Combs did not have to wait long before landing her next hit series, "Charmed" (The WB, 1998-2006), where she played one of three sister witches living in modern-day San Francisco. The show was a hit with both audiences and critics, allowing Combs steady work for a solid eight seasons despite tensions behind the scenes with original co-star Shannen Doherty. During her time on "Charmed," the actress segued over to producing and applied the skill to other projects once the series went off the air. By the time she had a supporting role on another popular series, "Pretty Little Liars" (ABC Family, 2010- ), Combs had established herself as one of the small screen's top unsung talents.
