Shannen Doherty is a special force.

Earlier this year, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum opened up about a heartbreaking development in her stage 4 cancer battle, sharing that it metastasized to her brain three years after her diagnosis. Amid this crucial time, the 52-year-old has been met with support from those around her, including former costar and friend Brian Austin Green.

"She's doing great," Green exclusively told E! News ahead of season two of Fox's Special Forces: World's Toughest Test. "She's resilient. I mean, if anybody that I know is going to have to deal with what she's dealing with, she's the one that can get through it."

The update on Doherty's health comes three months after the actress detailed her battle, noting that her "fear is obvious."

"On January 5th, my ct scan showed Mets in my brain," she captioned a June Instagram video of herself during a medical appointment. "January 12, the first round of radiation took place."

Noting her gratitude for her doctors, Doherty also reflected on her vulnerability.

"That fear….The turmoil…the timing of it all," she wrote. "This is what cancer can look like."

Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer began in 2015 and went into remission two years later. However, in February 2020, the Charmed alum shared that her cancer returned the year before and was categorized as stage 4.

"It's a hard one," Doherty told ABC News at the time, "because I thought when I finally do come out, I would have worked 16 hours a day and people can look at that and say, 'Oh my God, she can work and other people with stage 4 can work."

As the Fortress star noted, "Our life doesn't end the minute we get that diagnosis. We still have some living to do."
