Rósa Arianna McGowan (born September 5, 1973), better known as Rose McGowan, is an American former actress, model, singer, and author. She is best known to television audiences for her role as Paige Matthews in The WB supernatural drama series Charmed (2001–2006), and also for her recurring role in ABC's long running fantasy series Once Upon a Time as young Cora Mills.

McGowan made her film debut in the comedy Encino Man (1992), wherein she played a small role. Her performance as Amy Blue in Gregg Araki's dark comedy The Doom Generation (1995) brought her wider attention, and she received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her performance. McGowan appeared as Tatum Riley in the horror film Scream (1996) and starred alongside Ben Affleck in the coming-of-age feature Going All the Way (1997). She appeared in several Hollywood films, including Devil in the Flesh (1998), Jawbreaker (1999), Ready to Rumble (2000), Monkeybone (2001), and The Black Dahlia (2006). McGowan played Ann-Margret, alongside Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Elvis Presley, in the CBS miniseries Elvis (2005). She starred in Planet Terror (2007) and had a supporting role in Death Proof (2007), both part of the double-feature film directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, Grindhouse. Next, she starred in the crime thriller film Fifty Dead Men Walking (2008).

In 1996, McGowan was the cover model for the Henry Mancini tribute album Shots in the Dark, and she was the face of the American clothing company Bebe from 1998 to 1999. She has also appeared on numerous magazine covers, including Seventeen, Interview, Maxim, GQ, Entertainment Weekly, and Rolling Stone.
