5 Rose McGowan Rose McGowan Rosa Ariana Mcgowan was born September 5, 1973. She is an American film actress known for her roles as Paige Matthews in charmed the TV series, and as Cherry Darling in the 2007 Grind house film Planet Terror. She now in 2018 has her own E tv show Citizen Rose.

Come on, you guys! She was the most entertaining sister on Charmed. So sweet, witty, funny and just... Perfect. Beautiful. She brought something different in the show and she was so lovable. I admire her so much and I think she has real talent. She and Holly were my favorites. I loved Alyssa, but I didn't like her role so much and Shannen is a good actress, but again her role as Prue wasn't appealing. Rose is perfect and Paige is perfect! She is adorable.

Shes a Cylon and Xena. She should be #1. -

Lucy Lawless is great part to Xena: Warrior princess. Warrior woman, beautiful costum. Xena his me many opponent of warriors and alliance to Gabrielle.

What. Gillian Anderson is a has-been. She is arrogant and mean. Everyone hates her.
Lucy is a real actress.
