    "Not only can you survive, you can thrive."

    Charisma shot to fame on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and is the survivor of a real-life incident that she endured more than 20 years ago.

    The actress and two friends were swimming at San Diego's Torrey Pines State Beach in 1991 when they were violently attacked by an armed, rogue police officer. Carpenter fought for her survival after being held at gunpoint, but her two friends were both shot by the attacker and seriously wounded.
