Rose McGowan had never uttered a word of English until the age of 10. Born and raised as a child in Italy, McGowan grew up surrounded by a large family in Florence. It wasn't until her family moved to the United States, that she decided to make the move to Los Angeles to pursue acting.
She can most recently be seen starring in Lionsgate's film, CONAN THE BARBARIAN (3D) by director Marcus Nispel. She can be seen again in Lifetime's upcoming televisionmovie THE PASTOR'S WIFE, a story based on real-life 2006 media sensation, Mary Winkler. Additionally, Rose wrapped production on the Victor Salva directed horror/thriller ROSEWOOD LANE. In this film, she plays the lead role of Dr. Sonny Blake, a radio talk show psychiatrist who moves back to her hometown and begins noticing the unusual behavior of a local paper boy.
