Rose Arianna McGowan was born on September 5, 1973 in the cradle of the Renaissance - Florence.

Everything changed when Rose’s father became a member of the Children of God sect. He ceased to be interested in secular life, refused newspapers and magazines, gradually turned into a hermit. The girl's mother didn’t share her husband’s views on life and divorced him. When Rose was 10 years old, she moved to Washington.

In America Rose quickly learned two things: English and independence, because her mother was more involved in her personal life than raising her daughter. When Rose was 14 years old, one of her mother's gentlemen accused her of taking drugs, because of which she was forcibly sent to a clinic for treatment from drug addiction. The actress herself claimed her whole life that the accusation was false. McGowan spent about a year in the drug dispensary. Once free, she emancipated herself from her parents and moved to her grandparents.

Cinema career

Before realizing herself in acting, Rose tried dozens of different professions. Since 16 she had worked as a waitress, a clerk and a cashier, combining work with studies. In 1989, after graduating from high school, she entered the Seattle School of Art.

In addition to Red Sonja, Rodriguez planned to make two more films with Rose in the lead role, but the producers refused to coordinate the little-known actress from the long-closed series, and even with an unhealed injury. McGowan, who decided that an affair with a venerable director would open her way up, was disappointed in him and put an end to their relationship.

Rose McGowan nowadays

McGowan is currently shooting rarely, but in 2017 she worked with Danny Trejo on The Last Duane film, directed by Chris Ekstein.

When a scandal erupted in Hollywood in October 2017 (the actresses massively accused producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment) Rose McGowan was one of the first to claim the producer’s snouts. The Charmed star admitted that in 1997 Weinstein had raped her during the Sundance film festival and later paid off with 100 thousand dollars.

Soon the actress was accused of drug possession: she forgot a purse in the plane, where cocaine was found. Rose admits that she was thrown up the substance on the orders of Weinstein, who avenged her. The producer’s representatives called her words far from the truth. A trial of McGowan was to take place in 2018.
