Creator: Holly Marie Combs

Holly Marie Combs (born December 3, 1973) is an American actress who was first noticed as Kimberly Brock on Picket Fences, then had a scene with Tom Cruise in Born on the Fourth of July, and is currently on the TV version of Pretty Little Liars. But she is best known as Piper on Charmed. She has three sons with ex-husband David Donoho.

This actress is an example of...

  • As Herself: Has a cameo in the remake of Ocean's Eleven as one of the celebrities whom Brad Pitt is teaching poker.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Go look up a Piper Halliwell video on YouTube; Holly has some of the best deadpan delivery possible. Also, when she was in New York and auditioned for Picket Fences, she was told they were looking for an actress with "more heart." She quickly retorted, "If you're looking for heart, what the hell are you doing in New York?" She got the part.
  • Distinguishing Mark: Has a small but noticeable split in her right eyebrow that bisects the entire shape. When she was learning how to walk, she fell and banged her head on a marble table.
  • Girl Next Door
  • Hide Your Pregnancy: Charmed, the second time it happened.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 41 and doesn't really look any different than she did on Charmed. Hell, she doesn't look that different than when she was on Picket Fences, and she was in her early 20's then.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: The first time she became pregnant during production on Charmed, her condition was written into the show. Eventually. They had her hiding behind boxes as so forth until roughly her third trimester.
