A judge has granted Rose McGowan a three-year restraining order from a Connecticut man who she says threatened her agent and others in attempts to contact her.

The former star of the TV series “Charmed” did not attend Friday’s hearing. She wrote in a court filing that she has been “severely unnerved” by the actions of Louis S. Santo III.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Kenji Machida ordered Santo to stay away and not try to contact the actress until March 2014.

McGowan’s attorney, Aaron Shelden, says a man he believes was Santo called him recently and threatened him because he was representing the actress.

The 36-year-old Santo told The Associated Press in February that he had written a script for McGowan. He did not appear in court Friday.
