Notes and Trivia[]

  • Fans speculate that T.W. King left Charmed due to major fights with Shannen Doherty. An unknown source admitted that when Ted's character Andy had died, Shannen was overwhelmed by joy. Other fans say that he wanted more scenes, but the producers couldn't come up with more story-lines, which led to his death. Still others maintain the more plausible reason was that he wanted to leave to pursue more acting roles. It is somewhat notable that unlike Shannen, he allowed his face to be used in future episodes.
  • Archived footage of T.W. King appeared in the episodes "Crimes and Witch-Demeanors" and "Charmageddon".
  • Ted also worked with Greg Vaughan (as Lucky Spencer) on the long-running Daytime soap opera "General Hospital" which also featured "Charmed" co-stars Antonio Sabàto Jr. and Finola Hughes.
  • Ted is the eldest main cast in this show, older than Julian McMahon (by about 3 years).
