Shannen Doherty: Return to work helped me fight 'unimaginable beast' of cancer

Shannen Doherty: Return to work helped me fight 'unimaginable beast' of cancer”

The 46-year-old actress shared a pic of herself wearing a long black wig on the set of the upcoming "Heathers" TV reboot, and in the caption she revealed that work "invigorates" her after her frightening battle with breast cancer.

The news comes after the "Charmed" actress announced in an Instagram post in April that her cancer was in remission, after having undergone a single mastectomy and extensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 star appears to be just as thrilled about her new "do as we are".

"You look gorgeous hun, with a real healthy glow", one noted, while another wrote "it absolutely warms my heart to see you doing better you're truly an inspiration of beauty and strength".

'Was back on set today, ' wrote the star, 'It's been a rough two years.

"I compared myself to a vehicle today. Fighting cancer", she began.

Fans are so glad she's finally feeling up to getting back to work! It's still a great vehicle. Grateful for everyday. Thank [email protected] for letting me play and be someone else today.

Shannen Doherty will get better. "Performing like it's supposed to", she said. I'm grateful for today.

The actress took to Instagram to show off the "sexy Parisian" cut - a happy milestone after shaving her head a year ago just before starting chemotherapy.

The star finished by singing her praises for the Heathers team: 'Great crew, great writers, great cast, great show, great director'.

The former Hollywood bad-girl famously played ambitious, bulimic Heather Duke in Michael Lehmann's cliquey cult classic penned by Daniel Waters. "Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life".
