Shannen Doherty Before She Became A '90210' Bad Girl (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Shannen Doherty was one of the most famous actress' of the '80s and '90s. The Tennessee native first came to national attention with her role on "Little House on the Prairie" and later starred in the popular drama series "Beverly Hills, 90210." Known for being a bad girl, Doherty's career has taken her all over the map in recent years -- from "Dancing With the Stars" to her own reality series.

In celebration of her 42nd birthday today (April 12), we are taking a look back at an old photo of the star. In this 1982 snapshot, Doherty is seen on the set of "Little House on the Prairie" at the tender age of 11. She is decked out in her costume -- a long floral dress and pigtail braids complete with hair bows -- for her role as the precocious Jenny Wilder. Her sweet, young face makes it hard to believe that she would go on to play troublemaker Brenda Walsh.
