What the Characters from “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” Are Up to Today
Sabrina the Teenage Witch was one of the best-known TV shows of the second half of the ’90s and early 2000s. It was watched by millions of teenagers around the world. More than 25 years have passed since the release of the first episode, so we’re inviting you to succumb to some nostalgia and find out how the lives of the actors from this series have developed since its end.
1. Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina Spellman)
Hart starred on the show as a young witch who was trying to understand the world of magic and learning how to use her powers. This can easily be considered the peak of the actress’s career. After the show ended, Hart periodically starred in television shows and films, but none of these were a huge success except for Melissa & Joey, which ran for 5 years. You will rarely see Hart on-screen today. Still, her recent projects include the melodrama, Dear Christmas, and the series, No Good Nick.
In 2013, Hart published a memoir, Melissa Explains It All: Tales from My Abnormally Normal Life, where she reveals what it was like to be a teenage actor, explores teenage rebellion, and how she combines acting with motherhood. As for her personal life, Hart married musician Mark Wilkerson back in 2003. The couple is still happily married with 3 children.
2. Beth Broderick (Zelda Spellman)
We all remember that both of Sabrina’s aunts quit the series after the end of season 6. In Beth Broderick’s case, she felt her character had exhausted itself, and she had nothing more to offer. After her role as Zelda Spellman, Beth Broderick has mostly appeared in television shows and films. She even starred in Netflix’s modern adaptation of the Sabrina story, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
One of Broderick’s focuses in life is charity work. Back in 1984, she co-founded MOMENTUM. This organization is dedicated to helping people with AIDS. Broderick is also active in helping City Light, an organization that rehabilitates homeless women. If you go to Broderick’s Instagram, her description reads, “Can bring the funny and the pie.” Apparently, this statement is not far from the truth, as she periodically publishes her sweet culinary masterpieces.
3. Caroline Rhea (Hilda Spellman)
Rhea worked on several popular projects and was the voice for Linda Flynn-Fletcher on the show, Phineas and Ferb, and appeared in Christmas with the Kranks as well as The Perfect Man. Like Broderick, she also took part in the remake of the series about the teenage witch. Rhea currently hosts her own game show, Caroline & Friends, for the Game Show Network.
4. Nick Bakay (Salem Saberhagen)
The sarcastic and charismatic cat, Salem, can rightly be called the “heart” of the series. Nick Bakay, the actor who voiced him, is rarely seen on-screen, however, he is a very popular producer. For example, he took part in the creation of series like The King of Queens and Young Sheldon. However, you can still see Bakay in front of cameras, as he had a small role in the film, Zookeeper.
For some time, Bakay wrote a column called “Nick Bakay’s Manly House of Football” for the NFL, as well as for ESPN The Magazine.
5. Nate Richert (Harvey Kinkle)
Nate Richert played the role of Sabrina’s high school sweetheart, Harvey. Richert ended his acting career in the second half of the 2000s. In 2020, he briefly returned to star in Home Work. It’s also known that since 2012, Nate Richert has been working as a songwriter and musician.
6. Lindsay Sloane (Valerie Birkhead)
Lindsay Sloane’s professional career is one of the most fruitful from the Sabrina cast. Sloane has appeared in many television films and shows, amongst which are Horrible Bosses and Horrible Bosses 2, How I Met Your Mother, and The In-Laws. She also appeared in the main cast of the CBS sitcom, The Odd Couple. But Sloane’s been off-screen since 2019.
7. Jenna Leigh Green (Libby Chessler)
Jenna Leigh Green acts not only in films but also in theater, and she’s also taken part in various musicals. Today, she can be seen in single episodes of different shows, like Gossip Girl, Magnum P.I., and Blue Bloods. She also plays minor roles in popular shows, like Castle and Bones.
In addition to acting, Green has taken part in concerts, including charity-driven ones.
8. Soleil Moon Frye (Roxie King)
Soleil Moon Frye is often considered a voice actor since she has worked on projects like Robot Chicken, Bratz, Planet Sheen, and The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. But Frye has also tried herself as a director and brought projects like Kid 90 to life.
In 2007, Frye opened The Little Seed, an eco-friendly children’s clothing boutique in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the boutique closed a few years later. In addition, Frye has released several books. One of them is about parenting, called Happy Chaos: From Punky to Parenting and My Perfectly Imperfect Adventures in Between. And the second, Let’s Get This Party Started, is about organizing parties the right way. She also runs a blog and web series on parenting and women’s issues.
Frye has been married to television producer Jason Goldberg for over 23 years. They got married in 1998, but the couple filed for divorce in 2022. While married, they had 4 children — 2 daughters and 2 sons.
