Milano expanded her acting range in 1985 with her role in the action movie “Commando,” where she played the daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger. She also appeared in television films like “Crash Course” and “Dance till Dawn,” and made a cameo in “The Webbers.” From 1998 to 2006, Milano starred in the popular series “Charmed,” and later in “Mistresses” from 2013 to 2014.
Her acting prowess earned her a Critics’ award nomination for her role as a prostitute in the independent film “Where the Days Take You.” At the Seattle International Film Festival, she received the prestigious Golden Space Needle Award. In 2013, Milano ventured into the world of comics, creating the series “Hacktivist.”
