Paige Matthews portrayed by
Rose McGowan
Piper and Phoebe Halliwell discovered that they had a fourth sister after Prue was killed; in fact, they met at Prue's memorial service.  
They discovered that Patty Halliwell became pregnant while in a relationship with her whitelighter, Sam. The witch and the whitelighter
gave the child up for adoption in hopes of keeping her safe from demons.  Paige was adopted by the Matthews, a nice couple who gave
her a wonderful life growing up.  Unfortunately, they were killed in a car accident when Paige was a teenager, leaving her alone in the
world.  Paige was happy to find out she had sisters, but was not as thrilled -at first- to find out about being a witch.  She has since come
to terms, and is delighted about being a Charmed One. Her power is the ability to "call" for items, as well as being able to orb, like her
whitelighter father.  Paige is now the headmistress at Magic School.
Rose was born on September 5, 1973 in
Florence, Italy, the second oldest of six,
and relocated with her family to the US at

from 1998 to 2001. Along with The Doom
Generation, Rose has appeared in the
