Alyssa Milano

Biography

Actress Alyssa Milano has spent almost her entire life in the public eye. A famous child actor, Alyssa has continued to work throughout her adulthood in both television and film.

Alyssa has a history of starring in long running successful television series. She starred on the hit WB series "Charmed" for nine years. The series' debut was the highest-rated premiere in the network's history, and continued to be a great success for Spelling and The WB. The show's international appeal has brought it to more than 100 territories around the world, spanning Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. She also starred on the Fox cornerstone series "Melrose Place." She began her career on ABC's "Who's the Boss" which aired for eight years. Milano had a recurring role on the hit NBC comedy, "My Name is Earl," and starred in the ABC comedy, "Romantically Challenged."

Alyssa will be returning to her ABC roots, starring in a smashing ensemble cast, for the much anticipated drama "Mistresses" - which is expected to premiere in summer 2013 on ABC.

Last summer, Alyssa hit the big screen in "Hall Pass," opposite Owen Wilson. Alyssa's film credits include "Hugo Pool" co-starring Sean Penn and Robert Downey Jr., the Imagine/Universal film, "Fear," and "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star." She provided a lead voice for Disney's sequel to the animated favorite "Lady and the Tramp." She also starred in and produced the independent film "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend."

She was most recently seen in Lifetime's "Sunday's At Tiffany's," based on the best-selling novel by James Patterson. Alyssa also played the title character in the Lifetime Original Movie, "Wisegal," (which she also produced).

However, her other role is outside the world of Hollywood, as a philanthropist. Because of all her charitable work on behalf of children, Alyssa was invited by UNICEF in 2003 to become a National Ambassador. Her first trip with the organization was to Angola, Africa (May 2004) to see first hand the issues plaguing the newly liberated country. Milano followed that trip with a visit to India in June 2005. She is currently working with UNICEF to educate American youth to the issues crucial to that country's evolution. She has worked on UNICEF's pivotal "Trick or Treat" campaign as an official spokesperson, and has plans to work with UNICEF on numerous projects in the future.

International relief work is not new to the actress. In August of 2002, Alyssa hosted a photography exhibition and auction in Los Angeles to raise money for charitable efforts in South Africa. An avid photographer, Alyssa displayed her own work, as well as that of school children from L.A.'s Venice Arts program. The event raised close to $50,000 for Nkosi's Haven, an organization that runs care centers in South Africa for AIDS-afflicted mothers and children. For her efforts, Alyssa was honored with a humanitarian award from Sri Chinmoy: The Peace Meditation at the United Nations. It was this work that got the attention of UNICEF executives.

The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Disease Control (GNNTDC), an alliance of international partnerships based at the Sabin Vaccine Institute in Washington D.C. and formalized by the Clinton Global Initiative to lead the global effort to treat, control and eliminate neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) in the world's poorest countries recently named Milano the organization's founding ambassador. In this role, Milano will work to raise awareness of GNNTDC and NTDs among the mainstream media and with the general public.

The John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John's Hospital and Health Center and the Associates of Breast & Prostate Cancer Studies presented Alyssa with the Spirit of Hollywood Award in 2004, which honors individuals from the entertainment industry for their personal dedication and commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of others. Alyssa also attended the 2004 Democratic National Convention on behalf of the Creative Coalition and is an avid supporter of MTV's Rock the Vote campaign.

Milano also has her own clothing and jewelry line, TOUCH by Alyssa Milano. Launched in the Spring of 2007, TOUCH was born out of necessity. When Milano, an avid baseball fan, went to games, she wanted to wear fan gear to support her team, but found that the product mix offered in the marketplace did not address her everyday fashion needs. She felt women should be able to look stylish while cheering on their favorite team. So, she partnered with G-III Apparel Group and Major League Baseball to design and distribute a line of juniors' ladies MLB apparel. The line is not just for baseball fans anymore. Recently she has joined forces with the NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA, Major League Soccer, Minor League Baseball and The Kentucky Derby to make TOUCH available to their fans as well.

In her book SAFE AT HOME: Confessions of a Baseball Fanatic (William Morrow), Milano writes about her passion for baseball and how her love for the game has helped shape who she is.
Milano resides in Los Angeles.

Hi dontcare, u cant go around blamin Alyssa for things that happen in your personal life, they are human to and have lives of their own. It is unfortunate that you lost your friend but that isn't Alyssa Milano's or anyone else's fault. As for the girl thats getting bullied you should get your parents to go to the education authority, they will be able to help you with your current situation. She helps thousands of people with her work as an ambassador for unicef, she travels the globe to help people that is a far greater cause when you look at the big picture, but again she is only human and not a machine, she cant help everyone. sometimes you have to fight your own battles. ;)
