Actress SHANNEN DOHERTY who used to play Brenda Walsh on the original Beverly Hills 90210 and then played Prue Halliwell in Charmed, once quit her job because she thought she won Lotto. Sadly, it was just her Charmed co-stars playing an evil prank on her.
She says, "Every once and while when the lotto was really big, the cast would all go in and buy everybody on the crew and ourselves lottery tickets... The next day comes around (so)... I grab my lotto ticket, go back to the make-up trailer, sit there, look through the newspaper - and I've won. It was like around $50 million.
I jump up - I'm screaming hysterically - I run out of the make-up trailer, I run to my trailer, I gather up all my stuff, I run to my car, jump in, put it in drive, and start peeling out of the lot. (The cast and crew) come running after my car screaming, I stop really quick, and I'm like, 'What?' And they're like, 'Where are you going?' and I'm like, 'I won the lottery, I quit!' They had to tell me that I did not win the lottery and I was still broke and I still had to work. I actually cried hysterically, I had tears pouring down my face."
