Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano started acting when she was young. She became a child star when she was cast in the sitcom “Who’s The Boss?” Despite being dyslexic, the “Mistresses” star hasn’t let that stop her from learning her lines. She learned how to overcome the disorder by following the advice of British actor Sir John Gielgud back in 1986. “When I asked him how he memorized his monologues, he said, ‘I write them down,'” Milano recalled in 2003. “I use that method to this day. It not only familiarizes me with my words, it makes them my own.”
