Holly Marie Combs

Holly Marie Combs (born December 3, 1973 in San Diego, California, U.S.) is an American actress who has worked in movies and television series. She is best known for her roles as Tom Skerritt's and Kathy Baker's TV daughter and oldest child, Kimberly Brock in Picket Fences and as Piper Halliwell in Charmed. From 2002 until 2006, when the series ended, Combs was a producer for the show.

Combs was with her friend Shannen Doherty when she saw the pilot script for Charmed on the back seat, and said she wanted to take part in the audition. When they did, Combs auditioned for the role of "Prue Halliwell" and Doherty for "Piper Halliwell," but they ended up switching roles because they didn't "fit". Alyssa Milano and Combs both became producers for Charmed in the fifth season. For the last five seasons of Charmed (debuted in 1998 and was a hit TV series, which ended in May 2006), Combs played the oldest of the three sisters (originally, she played the middle child, but became the elder sister after the death of "Prue"), while ironically she was the youngest of the three actresses.
