Alyssa reportedly saved her uncle's life
Alyssa played Phoebe in the hit series Charmed, and recently spoke out after the show’s creator slammed the series as being “bad for the world” after the network wanted more nudity on the show. Tweeting in response to the comments, Alyssa wrote: “Well, this absolutely broke my heart. I hope we didn't make something that was 'bad for the world' for eight years. I think we gave permission to a generation of women to be themselves and to be strong and own their sexuality. I'm so proud of what this show meant to so many.”
