Much more than a pretty face, Rose McGowan's early roles as sexy, snarky, troubled teens initially won her praise, including an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her breakthrough role in Gregg Araki's "The Doom Generation" (1995). She reprised her villainous and violent ways in a number of little-seen indies and went on to taste commercial success in edge-of-your seat teen thrillers "Scream" (1996) and "Jawbreaker" (1999). A spot in the cast of the Goth hen party "Charmed" (The WB, 1998-2006) rescued McGowan from an impending slide into anonymity, after which she resurfaced in the indie film world with a charismatic performance as a stripper in Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's tribute to trash, "Grindhouse" (2007). McGowan's bad girl screen image was no stretch, as the actress ultimately became better known for eliciting controversy through her romantic relationships with rocker Marilyn Manson and her "Grindhouse" director, Rodriguez, than for her acting credits. However, the raven-haired actress held a definitive, almost hard-edged appeal, stealing most scenes she was in when given the opportunity to shine in quality productions.
