Charmed actress Rose McGowan never watched the hit series she starred in and is not interested in having a role in or watching its reboot, she recently told TMZ.
"I didn't watch it the first time so I won't be watching it the second time," she said.
When asked is she would agree to a role in the show if she was offered one if production was able to get the old cast together for the reboot, McGowan didn't sound excited about the idea.
"Long-term television freaks me out," she said.
When news of a reboot was announced on Oct. 25, McGowan, who played Paige Matthews in the series, took to Twitter to express her dismay.
"They are really running out of ideas in Hollywood," the 40-year-old actress wrote the same day. "Lame lame lame lamertons."
CBS will be working on a complete re-imagining of Charmed with Party of Five co-creator Chris Keyser and partner Sydney Sidner co-writing the project. The original show was created by Aaron Spelling for Warner Bros. CBS, which has all the rights to Spelling's work and will be producing the show with the Tannenbaum Company. At time of publication, the network has only ordered a script for the pilot.
The original, which wrapped in 2006, used to air on Warner Bros.' now defunct television channel and ran for eight seasons with 178 episodes. The main characters were portrayed by Alyssa Milano, McGowan, Holly Marie Combs and Shannen Doherty.
