What The Sabrina The Teenage Witch Actors Look Like 20 Years On
1. MELISSA JOAN HART (Sabrina Spellman)
Melissa had already become a 1990s icon thanks to Clarissa from 1991 to 1995, and a year later she followed it up with Sabrina, an even bigger hit.
After seven seasons, a couple of TV films and a cartoon series, she said goodbye to the character in 2003. During this time, she also starred in the cult Britney Spears-influenced teen movie Drive Me Crazy.
She finished ninth in Dancing with the Stars in 2009, and returned to the sitcom world with Melissa and Joey opposite fellow ’90s ‘legend’ Joey Lawrence in 2010, running for five seasons. Her most recent role? The uber-Christian God’s Not Dead 2.
2. NICK BAKAY (Salem Saberhagen)
OK, we only ever heard Nick’s voice, but Salem the cat was far too important to leave out. Nick also wrote several episodes of the series and its cartoon spinoff. He also voiced Norbert in The Angry Beavers, and later co-wrote Paul Blart: Mall Cop and its sequel. We’ll let you decide whether that’s a good thing or not. He has also popped up in various TV shows including King of Queens, Ellen and Mom.
3. CAROLINE RHEA (Hilda Spellman)
After playing Sabrina’s fun-loving aunt Hilda in all seven seasons, Caroline hosted reality show The Biggest Loser for three seasons until replaced by Alison Sweeney.
She later voiced Linda Flynn-Fletcher in 201 episodes of Phineas and Ferb from 2007 to 2015. She most recently appeared in an episode of 2 Broke Girls.
4. BETH BRODERICK (Zelda Spellman)
Beth played brainy aunt Zelda for the first six seasons before the character sacrificed her adult years to bring Sabrina back to life, and thus became a child again (you had to be there).
Since then, she played Kate’s estranged mother in Lost, and Rose in Under the Dome. In 2014, she reunited with Melissa Joan Hart in a couple of episodes of her sitcom Melissa & Joey
5. NATE RICHERT (Harvey Kinkle)
Ah, Sabrina’s true love. She even did a Graduate with him at her wedding. Sadly, Sabrina remains Nate’s biggest role to date. And he’s very aware that he looks different now.
He hasn’t acted since 2006, and has since turned to music. He released his debut album of vintage folk titled Halogen Moon in 2012.
They had a mini reunion on Twitter in 2013, and we’re hoping they did indeed meet up:
Jenna played Sabrina’s snobby cheerleader enemy Libby for the first three seasons before vanishing for good. She has since focused mostly on theatre work, and appeared in Wicked on Broadway for several years in the mid-2000s.
On TV, she has featured in episodes of Bones, Castle and Cold Case among others.
7. MICHELLE BEAUDOIN (Jenny Kelley)
You may remember Michelle as Sabrina’s BFF Jenny in the first season before she left the show and was never mentioned or heard from ever again. She later claimed: “I was told at the end of the first hiatus that they weren’t bringing Jenny back. I was told by my agent that they wanted to have an ‘ethnic’ friend but in the end they had Valerie who was hardly ‘ethnic’ so who knows. The mysteries of magic.” After appearing in a few TV shows and indie films, Michelle appeared to quit show business in 2005.
8. SOLEIL MOON FRYE (Roxie King)
You may not have realised that Soleil had already played Punky Brewster when seven years old before landing the role as Sabrina’s college roommate. You might remember her as the cute short girl who keeps punching Joey in Friends.
Since then, she’s focused mainly on voice work including The Proud Family and Planet Sheen, and she currently hosts TLC reality show Home Made Simple.
9. PAUL FEIG (Mr Pool)
Yep, the man who eventually directed Bridesmaids and the Ghostbusters reboot once played Sabrina’s favourite teacher.
In case you didn’t know, Paul also co-created cult comedy Freaks and Geeks, and directed episodes of The Office, Arrested Development and Mad Men among others. Melissa McCarthy has become his muse, as he also directed her in Spy and The Heat.
10. LINDSAY SLOANE (Valerie Birkhead)
Lindsay appeared in the second and third seasons of Sabrina as the witch’s shy friend at high school. Since then, she has appeared in loads of TV shows and films including Entourage, The West Wing, Bring It On, She’s Out of My League and The Other Guys.
Roles you might remember include Charlie Day’s girlfriend in Horrible Bosses and its sequel, and Ted’s blind date Jen in How I Met Your Mother.
11. DAVID LASCHER (Josh Blackhart)
After playing Josh for seasons 4 to 6 (sadly not the same Josh he played in Clueless), David quit acting in 1999.
BUT, he made a surprise comeback in 2014 – reuniting with Melissa Joan Hart in Melissa & Joey, along with…
12. ELISA DONOVAN (Morgan Cavanaugh)
Since playing the shallow friend of Sabrina from season five onwards, Elisa has mostly appeared in indie and made-for-TV films – including four The Dog Who Saved… movies. FOUR.
As mentioned above, she later reunited with Melissa Joan Hart and David Lascher (whom her character dated on the show) in an episode of Melissa & Joey in 2014.
13. TREVOR LISSAUER (Miles Goodman)
Trevor played conspiracy theorist Miles during Sabrina’s college years in seasons five and six. This is still his biggest role but in 2014 he voiced Jack the Jack Russell in Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. He’s also a member of the bands The Glass Plastiks and Animal Cloud.
14. ALIMI BALLARD (Albert the Quizmaster)
Not the pub quiz variety – Albert was like Sabrina’s Giles from Buffy in season two. Since then, Alimi played Herbal Thought (what a name) in Dark Angel, and the series regular David Sinclair in Numb3rs from 2005 to 2010.
Often playing cops or FBI agents these days, he recently had a recurring role in CSI and also appeared in episodes of Castle, Bones and had a small role in Fast Five.
15. DYLAN NEAL (Aaron Jacobs)
Dylan was already known for regular roles in The Bold and the Beautiful and Dawson’s Creek before playing Sabrina’s jilted groom in the final season.
Since then, he’s probably best known for playing Professor Ivo in Arrow, and played Anastasia’s stepfather in Fifty Shades of Grey in 2015.
