Shannen DohertyShannen Doherty appeared on 'Dancing With the Stars' last season to honor her father, who had recently suffered a stroke. On Sunday, she issued a statement saying John Thomas Doherty died Friday at age 66 after a series of health issues.

The 'Beverly Hills 90210' alum was eliminated from 'Dancing' in March after just one week of competition. But she considered her stint on the show a success because her father was in the audience, watching her perform.

"I did it for my dad," she said at the time.
