lived until she was seven. Her family then moved to Los Angeles, and she got her first big acting break when the late Michael
Landon discovered her from an episode of "Father Murphy." He cast her at age 11 as Jenny Wilder in the series "Little House:
A New Beginning." Shannen went on to star in the series "Our House" and "Beverly Hills, 90210," the show that made her a household
name. She played the Minneapolis transplant and teenage twin sister of Brandon Walsh (Jason Priestly) on the popular Aaron
Spelling drama from 1990 to 1994.
Moving effortlessly between television
and film, Doherty starred with Christian Slater and Winona Ryder in the 1989 black comedy "Heathers." Her other big-screen
