FACTS welcomes Charmed star Shannen Doherty!

Actress, producer and TV director Shannen Doherty is probably best known as Prue Halliwell in the popular witchcraft series Charmed, in which she starred from 1998 until 2001. She also had a key role in the famous teen series Beverly Hills, 90210, in which she played Brenda Walsh. Besides those two hallmark series, Shannen Doherty has been seen shining in many other TV and movie productions.

Prue Halliwell – Shannen Doherty’s role – is one of the three original witch sisters in the late 90’s / early 2000’s series Charmed. Shannen Doherty left the show after season 3, but was one of the reasons that Charmed became an instant hit, together with Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs. Doherty even directed a few episodes in seasons 2 and 3. The sheer number of reruns of Charmed on Belgian and international television confirms the popularity and quality of the show.

As Brenda Walsh, Shannen Doherty was the female lead in the famous teen series Beverly Hills, 90210. She left after 4 seasons, but there is no doubt that she was a fan favourite. Just recently, it has been announced that Beverly Hills, 90210 will return with the original cast for a new season. The movie business also had the pleasure of welcoming the talents of Shannen Doherty, in films like Heathers, Mallrats, Obsessed,Jailbreakers and many more.

Shannen Doherty started her career as a child star in the early 80’s, with roles in Little House on the Prairie and Our House. She has had her own reality show, was an excellent presenter, shined as a model, and survived cancer. There is no doubt that Shannen Doherty is a strong woman with an equally strong personality.

Shannen Doherty will be a guest at FACTS Spring 2019, on April 6-7, in Flanders Expo Ghent. She will be available for photoshoots, autographs and panels on both days of the FACTS weekend.

Since 1993, the FACTS organisers have been working their hardest to do right by the thousands of fans that come together in Ghent. We always aim to create a safe space for all our fans to gather, be themselves and make unforgettable memories with like-minded people and guests from all over the world.

With the well-being, health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors, crew and partners as our main priority, FACTS has been closely following and monitoring the evolution of the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, the Corona pandemic, during the last days.

Since the situation in Belgium is becoming more critical every day and since the US government announced travel restrictions to Europe, FACTS has decided to cancel the FACTS Spring 2020 edition due to force majeure.

After considering all possible safety measures, we have ultimately decided to follow the guidance of the local health organisations and governments indicating that mass events should be cancelled.

As our main goal is to offer our amazing community the unique experience they deserve and to guarantee their safety, we simply were left with no other option.

It pains us to take this decision, but we are already looking forward to the next gathering with all our fans, exhibitors and guests on 24 & 25 October in Flanders Expo Ghent. In the meantime, we have worked very hard to guarantee an even more impressive line-up of stars and we are excited to announce that Ian Somerhalder, Rebecca Mader & Troy Baker have already confirmed that they will be present to meet all their fans in Belgium on 24 & 25 October. More guests and surprises will be announced in the coming months.

All our visitors, exhibitors and partners will be contacted personally by e-mail very soon, with more information regarding the next steps. All entry tickets will remain valid for FACTS in October, but visitors will get the choice: keep the ticket(s) for October or ask for a refund. More detailed info on that will follow soon.

We appreciate the support we have received in the past week. The feedback was invaluable in helping us determine this decision.

Kind regards,

The FACTS team
