Wife – Alyssa Milano
Alyssa Jane Milano grew up in New York City in a family of Italian descent, alongside a younger brother. and was very familiar with the film industry thanks to her father working there in the area of music. Her mother, on the other hand, worked as a talent agent and was also a fashion designer.
Her acting career began without the knowledge of her parents, as her babysitter brought her to an audition at seven years of age, leading her to become a part of a touring production of the play “Annie”, beating 1,500 girls for the role.
Her first experience was intense, as she was on the road for over a year for the production. After her return to New York, she decided to continue with this path, working on several commercials and continuing to do off-Broadway plays, including an adaptation of “Jane Eyre”. Her family was very supportive of her decision, and she didn’t feel a lot of stress as a child actor due to her family’s familiarity with the industry.
In 1984, she made her first film appearance in “Old Enough”, which was acclaimed at the Sundance Film Festival.
Growing Up In Acting – Alyssa Milano
Milano then moved to Los Angeles in search of more acting opportunities, and was one of the stars in “Commando” portraying the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character. In 1991, she returned to theatre, in an LA production of “Butterflies Are Free” which ran for nearly a month. She showcased a bit of skill with singing, which led to her recording several albums, most of which got high certifications in the US, though she later regretted recording them.
The following year, she started to take on more mature roles, appearing as a prostitute in “Where the Days Take You”, for which performance she received considerable praise.
She began taking other roles as well, fearing that she might get typecast from her work with “Who’s the Boss?” She worked on several television movies, and even appeared nude in several films to help remove the nice girl image she had become associated with. Other roles she had include in “To Brave Alaska’, “Confessions of a Sorority Girl”, and “Candles in the Dark”. In 1996 and ‘97, she appeared in over 40 episodes of the soap opera ‘Melrose Place”, playing the character Jennifer Mancini.
Charmed – International Fame
In 1998 Alyssa was cast as one of the three main characters in the television show “Charmed’ which she would stay with for its entire eight-season run. The show featured three siblings who are good witches, and when using their power together, can defeat strong supernatural forces. They try to manage a normal life while secretly living lives with access to magical abilities. The show was very popular during its run, gaining a cult following and winning many awards. It also elevated the careers of many of the cast members involved.
In recent years Milano’s work has lessened, though she continues to take roles regularly.
In 2011 she worked on the comedy films “New Year’s Eve” and “Hall Pass”, then appeared in the television series “Mistresses”, but left the show after its first season due to issues with her family. She appeared during the third season of “Project Runway: All-Stars” in 2013, and has appeared occasionally since. A few of her latest projects include “Insatiable”, and “Tempting Fate”, which is inspired by the book of the same name written by Jane Green. Since her youth, she has also been the feature of various magazine articles, including “Playboy”, “Maxim”, “FHM”, and “Cosmopolitan”.
Dave’s wife had been in numerous high-profile relationships before they began dating. With her extensive career in entertainment, she was associated with names such as Corey Haim and Scott Wolf to whom she was engaged but called it off. She then married Cinjun Tate in 1999, but they divorced in less than a year, and she dated Brian Krause during her time in “Charmed”.
Dave met her in 2007 and the two began dating, leading to their engagement a year later. They married in his family home in New Jersey in 2009, and they have two children together. The family resides in Bell Canyon, California, and they own numerous pets, including five dogs, nine horses, two rabbits, and eight chickens. During their free time, the couple loves supporting various charities, especially various animal rights groups.
