Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan, one of six children, was raised in Italy and spent most of her childhood traveling throughout Europe. She returned to the United States to attend high school, settling in Seattle.

A chance trip to Los Angeles resulted in McGowan winning a role in Greg Araki's dark and stylish road movie The Doom Generation. McGowan's performance earned her a nomination for Best Newcomer at the 1996 Independent Spirit Awards.

Also in 1996, Rose appeared as Tatum, Sydney's doomed best friend, in Wes Craven's hit horror film Scream.

In 1997, McGowan held the distinction of starring in four films which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival: the coming-of-age film Going All The Way, Louis & Clark & George, Greg Araki's Nowhere and the short film Seed.

In 1998, McGowan starred with Ben Affleck and Peter O'Toole in the thriller Phantoms and starred in the independent film Southie, winner of Best Picture at the Seattle Film Festival.

Most recently McGowan starred in TriStar Pictures' Jawbreaker and recently completed work on Monkey Bone, with Brendan Fraser.
