What the Actors From “Charmed” Look Like and What They Do 23 Years After the Series Release
The first installment of Charmed came out in 1998 and followed 3 sister-witches who’d fight evil as they conquered the hearts of teenagers all over the world. Thanks to its popularity, 8 seasons of the series were released, and countless actors took part in it.
