Alyssa en Holly hebben gereageerd op de uitspraken die Krista Vernoff deed over ‘Charmed’, ze zijn het niet eens met de uitspraken. Zo laat Alyssa weten “Dit heeft mijn hart echt gebroken. Ìk denk dat we aan een hele generatie vrouwen net laten zien hebben hoe ze stevig in hun schoenen kunnen staan en hoe ze hun seksualiteit moeten omarmen.” Holly Marie Combs laat weten: “Ik ben er 1000% zeker van dat ‘Charmed’ niet slecht was voor deze wereld”.
Holly en Rose waren afgelopen zondag samen aanwezig op de online conventie Dream It Convention. Fans konden via videobellen met de hen praten.
http//: 21 februari: Virtual Dream It Convention
Afgelopen weken ontstond er een online woordenwisseling tussen Rose, Holly en Sarah over ‘Charmed’. Dit nadat Sarah in een tweet reageerde op de livevideo die Holly en Rose online haden gezet.
Het begon met de livevideo waarin Holly en Rose zich uit over het feit van de orginele ‘Charmed’ niet meer te zien is op de Amerikaanse steamingsdienst Netflix. Hierop reageerde Rose dat dit zou komen omdat de reboot dan beter bekeken zou worden, deze zou niet leuk zijn – ook al is ze blij dat mensen hierdoor een baan hebben. Iets later in de video gaf ze wel toe de ‘Charmed’ reboot nog nooit gekeken te hebben, waarop Holly lachend reageert.
“I haven’t seen it, I can’t say that. I’ve never seen it. I’m happy that people have jobs – but it can still suck.”
Hierop voelt Sarah geneigd te reageren via haar twitteraccount. Hierin benoemd ze de reactie van de Rose en Holly vooral triest en eerlijk gezegd zielig te vinden dat volwassenen vrouwen zich zo gedragen, en andere vrouwen met een gekleurde huid naar beneden halen. Ze voegt er aan toe dat ze hoopt dat ze gelukkig zijn. In een aanvullende tweet laat ze weten dat haar vader ooit actrice Shannen Doherty op de set van een project heeft ontmoet en zij aardig was en blij met de nieuwe serie.
“You know, I saw this earlier and I refrained from saying anything. I thought, better to just let them shout into the abyss. But I do want to say, I find it sad and quite frankly pathetic to see grown women behaving this way. I truly hope they find happiness elsewhere, and not in the form of putting down other WOC. I would be embarrassed to behave this way. Peace and love to y’all.”
In other news, my dad met the lovely @DohertyShannen on set once whilst standing in. He approached her saying his daughter was a new Charmed one (pre-covid!). He told me she was so kind, thrilled for us, and excited to take a picture. She sent her love. 🥰
Holly is echter niet gediend van de reactie van Sarah en geeft hierop een reactie via haar twitteraccount, waarbij ze voornamelijk kritiek lijkt te hebben over Sarah’s opmerking over huidskleur. Later tweet Holly nog dat de reboot vooral pijn doet omdat het de gehele filmindustrie gaat om het verdienen van geld. En ze hoopt dat fans de ruzie nu laten rusten.
“That’s some bullshit. And a lot of it. Clearly. People speaking, excuse me typing, derogatory accusations of a person’s character despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary because of a difference in opinions about a tv show is just plain wrong. And also personal gain honey.”
“My Charmed friends … I would like everyone to stop. Truth be told and it will be told is that our issues were and are at the corporate level. And we have the receipts. Just as the new cast were asked to be people they were not we were given ultimatums that were crazily unfair. And I will say to the ladies of the reboot… stick together… negotiate together and know that the discourse between us, you guys and crews being discarded and replaced is what they bank on. Division. That is all. Blessed be.
And for the last time I will say it’s not about any 1 person taking a job to support their families or themselves. It’s about an industry that sees us only as numbers whether it be follower #’s or $ signs. Cuz in the end and actually in the beginning that’s all we were/are. Cool.”
Rose besluit via een bericht in instagramstories zich te direct de richten tot Sarah, waarin ze soort van haar excuses aanbied…….
“I can’t believe how many kids have asked for that and I call them kids, but they’re like, 30, but because I’m so old that they are kids still,” she told Us Weekly in an interview published on Aug. 22. “I actually did talk to Shannen about it and she was like, ‘Alyssa [Milano] would probably love to do that with you!’ Maybe after the election, it would be good.”
Seeing as Combs already has one successful podcast about Pretty Little Liars, she’s definitely the right person to pursue a podcast about Piper, Paige (Rose McGowan), Phoebe (Milano), and Prue (Doherty) Halliwell. Her current PLL podcast is appropriately titled “Pretty Little Wine Moms,” and features her former costars, Lesley Fera and Nia Peeples. They rewatch episodes, chat with other actors from the show, and even have Zoom calls with fans.
A similar format for Charmed might work as well, or she could come up with a completely new format. Whatever the case, Combs isn’t ruling out the future potential project. Plus, when Drew Fuller, who played Piper’s son on Charmed, jokes that Combs won’t let him be a “wine mom,” a Charmed podcast sounds like the next best decision since Fuller could very much contribute.

Even with all of the recent “family drama” between McGowan and Milano, Combs continues to act like big sister Piper, proving she’s destined to keep the legacy of Charmed alive. For those unaware, after much heated back and forth between the two on Twitter beginning Aug. 21, McGowan alleged that Milano “made that set toxic AF.” Milano didn’t respond to McGowan’s Charmed claims directly, but a rep for the star told People, “Hurt people hurt people. Commenting any further doesn’t align with my wellness plan.”
As for Combs, she tweeted on Aug. 22, “I mean was there ever an episode where we all got along? No. No one would’ve watched that show. It’s ok. Call your siblings, parents and grandparents. Breathe deep thankfully. Life is short and just got shorter for many. That’s what Piper would’ve said. As she blew something up.”

Doherty also tweeted directly to the Charmed fans, “I just want to say…. thank you Charmed fans. No matter what’s happening just know you are appreciated and loved.”
Brian, Drew, Holly en Rose hebben afgelopen weekend opnieuw een virtueel panel gehad, dit keer met Fandemic Tour. Ik hoop nog dat een video hiervan online komt om te delen :)
Holly is een podcast genaamd ‘Pretty Little Wine Moms’ begonnen maar haar ‘Pretty Little Liars’ collega’s en vriendinnen Lesley Fera en Nia Peeples.
Brian, Drew, Holly en Rose waren afgelopen dinsdag aanwezig op een virtuele panel van de Wizard World Conventies. Aankomende weekend staan nog enkele panel met hen alleen gepland, waarvoor tickets gekocht kunnen worden. Klik hier voor meer informatie en ticketprijzen daarover.
Actrice Holly Marie Combs, voornamelijk bekend van de serie Charmed, is haar grootvader verloren aan COVID-19, maar volgens haar zou dit nooit gebeurd zijn zonder het slechte advies van president Trump.
Zo zei de 46-jarige actrice op Twitter in een reactie op een van Trump zijn berichten: ”Mijn grootvader is vandaag gestorven. Hij heeft op jou gestemd. Hij geloofde je, toen jij zei dat het virus niet erger is dan de griep. Hij geloofde elke leugen die jij uitkraamde. Hij is vandaag gestorven aan COVID-19, een dag na zijn 66ste verjaardag. Je bent een schande voor het menselijke ras”
Hier bleef het echter niet bij. Combs kwam de dag erna met een nieuwe bericht, nadat de nodige Trump supporters deze keer naar haar uitgehaald hadden: ”Ik heb nul tolerantie voor Trump-supporters. Nul. Ga iemand anders maar lastigvallen”.
Supa-Star Holly Marie Combs brought the magic to Supanova in Melbourne and on the Gold Coast, this past March, with fans ecstatic to see the Charmed actor alongside co-star Brian Krause once more.
Unsurprisingly, there was a LOT of fan questions during her visits – some that resulted in surprising answers. Here are a few highlights from Holly Marie Combs’ Gold Coast panel.
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT AUSTRALIA
“The people, for sure. They’re a friendly, enthusiastic bunch. I have a lot of favourite countries, but [Australia] is definitely up there. I love Switzerland too, but it doesn’t have an ocean, so you guys kind of win.”
“The old people like Charmed – I’m one of the old people, don’t be offended – and the younger generation kind of drifted towards the madness and craziness of Pretty Little Liars.”
“My favourite spell in Charmed was the truth spell. That was super funny but super important. There’s nothin’ I like less than a liar. Then I did [Pretty Little Liars] for seven years.”
“I was so nervous filming [Picket Fences], because I felt so green and young, and I was surrounded by all these really good movie actors. I was just waiting for the day where they found out that I didn’t belong there and that I would get fired.”
“I was not the first person that they called, but by the time they did call me they said, ‘Listen, we know you may not want to do this, because a lot of people said that they don’t want to make fun of themselves.’ I was like, ‘I don’t care – let’s go! Tell me where and when.’ And then Brad Pitt called me Holly and I was like, ‘This is weird.’”
THE CHARMED FINALE
“We sort of had a hand in how our characters ended up. The girls and I went into my trailer and we sort of mapped out the way we wanted our characters to end up and with how many children. It was nice to be able to wrap it up that way because on most shows you do not get the opportunity, or even have the time to do it properly… I haven’t seen it, because I do this weird thing where I don’t watch finales – I can’t explain it, it’s just one of my weird things.”
“Love scenes with [Brian] were super awkward. I would stress about it for like a week, like, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. Really? Really? Really? Really?’ Because we were buddies and we are still buddies.”
“I never anticipated while I was doing [Charmed] that it would be as far-reaching, but I’m glad all the crazy dedication that I put into it is not just impactful but long-lasting.”
REBOOT WITH ORIGINAL CAST
“Alyssa [Milano] and I talked about it when we did that episode of Grey’s Anatomy and she felt at the time that it would be better to do it as a series of movies, maybe two or three a year. I was like, ‘We’re gonna be really old by the time we’re done with that.’”
“Brian! Leo was always the fourth sister, before we had a fourth sister. He gossips more than anyone.”
If you ask any Charmed fan what they know about what went on during the filming of the show, many of them will refer to the fact that it was reported that Shannen Doherty could be something of a diva. However, in a recent interview with Pedestrian, Brian Krause who played Leo, has downplayed how much of a drama this did actually cause on set. Krause has said that Doherty was always very driven about her work, and that sometimes she could come across as quite abrupt. However, he also said that there was no one else on the set that worked as hard as she did. She would also stick up for anyone of her co-stars if she felt it was needed. He described her as one of the family and said that all the cast and crew were devastated when she left. They all wondered whether the show would be able to go on without her. Ultimately, Rose McGowan was cast as a half sister that the family were unaware of, and the show ran for another five seasons.
When Doherty departed the show at the end of season three, it was rumored that she was fired. There were reports of a feud between her and co-star Alyssa Milano. The popular theory at the time was that Milano had given the producers an ultimatum that if Doherty wasn’t fired, then she would leave. However, this does not seem to be the way that Krause remembers it. There has never been any official confirmation as to why Doherty decided to leave the show, and according to Krause it was a surprise to everyone that worked on the show.
Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs made “Charmed” fans’ dreams come true when they guest starred as two sisters on an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” earlier this month. The special “Cast From the Past Week” installment of the popular ABC medical drama reignited the reunion conversation among those viewers longing for the Power of Three to set them free.
And Milano isn’t shooting down the possibility.
“I mean, Holly and I talk about ‘Charmed’ movies a lot, you know,” the “Insatiable” star told Access Daily hosts Mario Lopez and Kit Hoover. “Because they have the new ‘Charmed,’ which is on The CW, and it’s a very different storyline…”
Here’s where Hoover interjects to say The CW’s reboot, which is currently in its second season and produced by CBS TV Studios (the studio with the rights to “Charmed”), is “not the same” and Milano agrees: “It’s a different show and it felt like they were trying to capitalize off the name but not continuing on the storyline or the legacy. So it was tough.”
“But we have been talking about maybe doing some films for Netflix,” she added. “And so I think that would be really fun and I think it’s a great way to celebrate our fans that have stuck with us for such a long time but still give it new blood.”
Representatives for Netflix and CBS TV Studios did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Alyssa says that when she reunited with Holly for the “Grey’s” episode they “did not miss a beat.”
“It was like we were at work yesterday doing ‘Charmed,’” she said.
In reality, it’s been 12 years since we said goodbye to the series, which ran for eight seasons from 1998-2006 on The WB and later The CW. Milano and Combs starred on the magical drama as sisters Phoebe and Piper Halliwell, with Shannen Doherty playing their eldest sister, Prue, on Seasons 1-3 and Rose McGowan taking over as the third lead in Season 4, cast in the role of Paige, their half-sister.
“We had so much fun,” Milano says, looking back on “Charmed.” “I mean, you don’t take yourself too seriously on that show because we were battling demons every day in ridiculous costumes, you know what I mean?”
