After the fourth season, Doherty's Brenda Walsh was leaving the world's most famous zip code for London to spend a year studying at the Royal Academy for Dramatic Arts...only, she never returned. Shannen Doherty, presumably because she's supposed to be the co-star from hell, never returned to 90210 until 2008 when she appeared in the spin-off. Since her time on the show, she starred the series Charmed, which was also produced by Aaron Spelling, but ultimately left due to cast conflicts as well. She's also appeared in tons of reality shows, made-for-TV movies, and failed TV shows, most notably: Dancing With The StarsThe New Normal (as Brenda Walsh), and will reprise her 1995 Mallrats role for the upcoming sequel.

She then went on to star in a number of movies, including Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby which earned her another Oscar: Insomnia, The Black Dahlia, Freedom Writers, P.S.
