We loved her as Brenda Walsh in the original "Beverly Hills, 90210," now Shannen Doherty's back for multiple episodes of The CW's spin-off, "90210," including the two-hour premiere on Tuesday, September 2 at 8 p.m. -- and ET has your first look at scenes from the debut night!

Shannen Doherty was born in Memphis, Tennessee, USA, on April 12, 1971 to parents Tom and Rosa. Her father worked in a bank while her mother owned a beauty parlor. She has an older brother named Sean. In 1978 at the tender age of seven, she and her family moved to Los Angeles, where her father started a West Coast branch of the family transportation business. Shannen has always been close to her family, who disciplined her from a young age. She knew she wanted to pursue an acting career when she made her acting debut at age ten, with a role on the series "Father Murphy" (1981).
