Shannen Doherty Shares What The Late Wilford Brimley Taught Her


Actor Wilford Brimley recently passed away at the age of 85. Shannen Doherty spoke out after receiving the news. She talked about the big impact that Wilford had on her life after they met while filming Our House. The show aired for two seasons in 1986.

Shannen wrote, “I met Wilford when we did ‘Our House’ together. He taught me a lot on that show. He also gave me a horse named Brownie. Taught me how to ski in Utah. Had 2 African Grey’s that would curse and call his dogs only to laugh at them when they came running.”
