What The Cast Of Sabrina The Teenage Witch Is Doing Today

Following her starring role as Clarissa Darling in "Clarissa Explains It All" on Nickelodeon in the early 1990s, Melissa Joan Hart was given another sitcom, ABC's Archie Comics adaptation "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," in 1996. It went on to run for seven seasons in total, moving networks to The WB in 2000 for its final three seasons. A big hit with teens, the series followed a young witch who discovers she has magical powers and must deal with the big changes in her life while also navigating high school.

Sabrina was helped along the way by a core cast of characters that included her two 600-year-old aunts and a talking cat named Salem. Sabrina also had close friends and several love interests, although fans will likely best remember her regular boyfriend Harvey Kinkle.

"Sabrina the Teenage Witch" was known for going through a number of cast changes, with significant characters leaving without explanation. While most of them have continued acting in some form, there are a few surprise career choices for some of the actors who appeared in the show.

Melissa Joan Hart

Melissa Joan Hart portrayed the main protagonist in the 1996 sitcom from the very beginning of the series. Just 19 years old when she was first cast for the television movie that served as the series' unofficial pilot, she played Sabrina Spellman throughout all seven seasons. The witch discovers she has magical powers when she turns 16 but struggles to cope with her newfound abilities during her teenage years in school and college.

Even before "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Hart had established herself as a well-known actor, having appeared in the title role of "Clarissa Explains It All." It seemed likely that she'd continue in the entertainment industry. Perhaps her most famous role after that was in "Melissa & Joey," another sitcom that featured her alongside Joey Lawrence, which brought in consistently high ratings (via TV by the Numbers).

Hart has indeed stayed in Hollywood and is still active, though her '90s heyday seems to be behind her. More recently, she's appeared in both "God's Not Dead 2" and "No Good Nick" on Netflix. She's also directed episodes of television series such as "Young Sheldon" and "The Goldbergs." In 2019, she returned to Nickelodeon to voice the character Mrs. Becca Chang in "The Loud House" spin-off series "The Casagrandes." Her most recent role came in the 2022 Lifetime series "Dirty Little Secret" and she also hosts her own podcast called "What Women Binge." She also made history on "Wheel of Fortune" by becoming the first celebrity to win $1 million on the game show (via USA Today).

Caroline Rhea

Fans of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" will remember Caroline Rhea for her performance as Hilda Spellman, one of the two aunts who act as guardians for the lead character. Unlike her older sister Zelda, Hilda is often more impulsive and rash, allowing whims to guide her decisions and adding a fun sense of chaos. She was a regular member of the cast from the first season, but only appeared in guest roles for Season 7.

Rhea was in demand upon leaving the witch-based sitcom. She went on to host her own daytime chat show in the form of "The Caroline Rhea Show" and was the first host of NBC's 2004 reality show "The Biggest Loser." She's consistently gotten work in the years since "Sabrina" ended, including a regular part in "Phineas and Ferb" voicing Linda Flynn-Fletcher — a role she reprised for the television movies "Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension" and "Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe."

More recently, in 2020, Rhea made a single appearance in the comedy panel show "The Blame Game" and took part in an episode of "Match Game." Most notably, she once again portrayed Hilda alongside Beth Broderick as Zelda in Netflix's "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" (via Entertainment Weekly). More recently, she was a contestant on "LOL: Last One Laughing Canada" competing against the likes of Tom Green and Colin Mochrie.

Beth Broderick

The second of the two aunts in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Zelda Spellman was played by actor Beth Broderick. This character was far more logical and assured than her sister, acting as the level-headed, rational member of the family and someone who would often take charge. A main character for the first six seasons, her character was largely absent for the seventh and final season.

A veteran television actor even before "Sabrina," Broderick has continued to appear in various shows. She appeared as a guest in two episodes of "Melissa & Joey" alongside Melissa Joan Hart and was part of the cast of "Lost" in its early seasons. Having moved to Austin, she is involved in local cinema projects and has had parts in the 2021 series "Walker" and "Shrill," with the actor also set to have a regular role in the upcoming "Love and Death."

Like Caroline Rhea, Broderick appeared in "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" in Part 4 as a modified version of her character from "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." This time around, though, Zelda was an evil demon rather than the charming witch fans remembered. Enjoying the experience of returning to the world of magic, she told Digital Spy: "It was very moving, too, because we really like the new cast, and we always wished them well. So it was really a great joy to be able to meet them and work with them."

Nick Bakay

Nick Bakay was the man responsible for voicing Salem Saberhagen, the sharp-tongued, super-sarcastic black cat who lives with Sabrina, Hilda, and Zelda. A warlock who was punished to live as a cat after trying to take over the world, he is one of the few characters to be a main part of the cast for the entire seven seasons of the show.

The actor reprised his role in "Sabrina: The Animated Series." He's kept up the voice work elsewhere, too, like in "OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes." He once was a regular on sports shows covering the NFL and has even blogged for the Super Bowl. In 2019, he appeared on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" with Melissa Joan Hart as his character from "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."

The actor also had roles in the sitcoms "Mom" and "'Til Death," but now works more as a producer rather than appearing on screen. His credits include "Two and a Half Men," "Bob Hearts Abishola," and "The Kominsky Method." Since 2021, he has also acted as an executive producer for the "Big Bang Theory" spin-off series "Young Sheldon" (via Dunklevision).

Nate Richert

Harvey Kinkle played an important role in the series as the love interest and close companion of Sabrina throughout most of the seasons. While his character was mostly missing in Season 5, he returned for the final two seasons once again in a regular role. Nate Richert portrays Harvey, who certainly has his ups and downs with the young witch, but eventually gets a happy ending with her at the conclusion of the seventh season.

He seemingly gave up on acting after "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." Richert told Revamp Magazine that he took an interest in directing and producing after he left the show. That culminated in him helming short films, which are available on his YouTube channel, and producing the television movie "What About Weiss." He did appear in an episode of the television series "Home Work" in 2020, however. 

Richert also performs as a musician and has written a variety of songs. Last year, he appeared in Melissa Joan Hart's podcast "What Women Binge" and discussed their time working together.

Jenna Leigh Green

Jenna Leigh Green played the regular character Libby Chessler in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." She appeared often throughout the first three seasons of the series and was a major antagonist. Rich and popular, Libby took a liking to Harvey and, with her cheerleader friends, acted as a bully toward Sabrina. In a cast reunion interview in 2022, the actor spoke about her love of the show and how she and Melissa Joan Hart became close despite the fact that Libby was eventually sent off to boarding school, never to be seen again.

Although she is best known for her role in the ABC sitcom, Green has had a number of other roles in television shows, including guest roles in the likes of "ER," "Bones" and "Castle." In recent years, she has continued to appear in series on screen, with minor parts in "The Survivalist" and "Gossip Girl" as well as "NCIS: Hawai'i" and "Magnum P.I." in 2022. She has also had several roles in the musical "Wicked," taking part in national tours and in the Broadway production (via Broadway.com).

Michelle Beaudoin

Sabrina's best friend in the first seasons of the show was Jenny Kelley. She not only acts as support for the character but also introduces her to Harvey. Imaginative, loyal, and moral, she is portrayed by Michelle Beaudoin. The actor had earlier played a different character in the original TV movie that preceded the TV show, although she was also Sabrina's friend. Jenny left the series after the first season and was never seen, or even mentioned, from that point.

Exactly why Beaudoin left "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" isn't clear, although Melissa Joan Hart suggested it could have been due to audience reaction or even politics behind the scenes (via the Huffington Post). Having left the sitcom, she had roles in a handful of other television series, ranging from "Da Vinci's Inquest" to "The Outer Limits," but has not had an on-screen role since 2006. While it isn't clear exactly what she is up to right now, her Twitter biography indicates that she is involved in the world of fashion and is also involved in the music site Cuelr.

Paul Feig

Paul Feig played another character, Mr. Eugene Pool, who only appears in the first season of the show. He's Sabrina's favorite high school teacher and someone she looked up to. He has a habit of being sarcastic to his students and other members of staff, but has an element of fun about him. After the end of Season 1, Pool departed and never returned.

Since his time on "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Feig has continued to act, with just over a dozen roles in series such as "Arrested Development" and the film "Knocked Up." However, he is now much better known as a filmmaker. He is a frequent collaborator of Melissa McCarthy, having written, directed, or produced a variety of films featuring her in starring roles, including "Bridesmaids," "Spy," and "Ghostbusters." More recently, he has helped create the television series "Welcome to Flatch" and directed "The School for Good and Evil," which he co-wrote with "Finding Neverland" screenwriter David Magee.

Penn Jillette

Drell is a recurring character in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" who appeared several times throughout the first season of the show and is played by Penn Jillette. A powerful witch and head of the influential organization known as The Witches Council, he's often involved in handing down judgments and punishing Sabrina when she breaks magical laws. Often seen with Skippy, played by his real-life friend and magician partner Teller, Drell was also involved romantically with Hilda at some point in their past.

Jillette has continued to appear in television series, although normally not as a fictional character. He has notably developed shows with his collaborator Teller, including "Penn & Teller: Fool Us" and "Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t!" The pair also continues to tour around the world while also enjoying a residency at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. As an actor, he has voiced a character in the video game "Borderlands 3" and has a role in the "Black Museum" episode of the Netflix anthology series "Black Mirror."

Lindsay Sloane

Following the departure of Libby, a new character named Valerie Birkhead took on the role of Sabrina's best friend. Lindsay Sloane was chosen to portray Valerie and did so throughout the second and third seasons of the series. Lacking common sense and occasionally slow to keep up with the action, Valerie is a constant source of support for Sabrina as she learns how to become a witch. She eventually discovers her friend's magical powers before leaving after the conclusion of Season 3.

Of all the actors on "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Sloane is probably one of the more active and successful. While she hasn't had a major role in any on-screen production since the 2019 romantic comedy "Endings, Beginnings," she has had dozens of credits to her name and is set to appear in "Home Delivery" as Amy Messina.

She is perhaps best known for her regular role as part of the main cast in the CBS sitcom "The Odd Couple" alongside Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon from 2015 to 2017, appearing in all 38 episodes. The actor also played Stacy Arbus in "Horrible Bosses" and its sequel, and also had a guest role in the comedy series "I'm Sorry."

Martin Mull

Martin Mull appeared as Willard Kraft in three seasons of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" after making his debut in Season 2. Originally the vice principal at Westbridge High, he is later promoted to the role of principal and acts as something of an antagonist to Sabrina and her friends Valerie and Harvey. Going out of his way to find fault with their behavior, Mr. Kraft hands out detentions regularly and only causes more issues for the young witch when he begins dating both Hilda and Zelda.

Mull is a veteran of television and movies, having appeared in more than 100 productions during his long career. He has had recurring roles in shows such as "Two and a Half Men," "Arrested Development," and "The Ranch," in addition to voicing characters in "American Dad!" and "Danny Phantom." In more recent years, he had guest roles in "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "Grace and Frankie" as well as continuing his career in music — releasing two albums — and artistry as a painter (via M&C).

Alimi Ballard

Albert the Quizmaster was an integral part of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," but only in the second season. Following the revelation that Sabrina is a witch and must pass a series of tests in order to gain her Witch's License before she becomes an adult, the Quizmaster is largely responsible for both teaching and testing her. Played by Alimi Ballard, the character disappeared from the show after Sabrina qualified at the start of Season 3.

Ballard has been a regular on television screens since his appearances in the ABC sitcom, having guest roles in everything from "Bones" to "Castle." He even appeared alongside Melissa Joan Hart in "Melissa & Joey" in 2013. He is perhaps best known for his role in "Numb3rs," where he played main character David Sinclair. He has also had regular roles in "NCIS" and "The Super Hero Squad Show" in addition to his role in the first season of Shonda Rhimes' crime drama "The Catch" (via Digital Spy). In 2019, he had a part in "Kill Chain," a crime thriller starring Nicolas Cage.

Soleil Moon Frye

Soleil Moon Frye is best known for her pre-"Sabrina" career, having starred in the NBC sitcom "Punky Brewster" as a child in the '80s. In "Sabrina," she plays Roxie King, a character who only appeared in the final three seasons. A somewhat pessimistic person, she becomes close to Sabrina when they both attend the same college and become roommates. This relationship continues when the pair graduates, with the two remaining good friends until the end of the series.

Although she's continued to act on screen occasionally, Frye has found steadier work in animated projects. In recent years, she voiced characters in "Bratz" and "The Proud Family," along with its sequel series "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder." The actor also portrayed Jade in a series of "Bratz" television series and direct-to-DVD movies. Frye has also appeared in Peacock's 2021 sitcom reboot "Punky Brewster," portraying main character Penelope. In 2021, she released the documentary "Kid 90" on Hulu, which charted much of her life and the relationship she had with a huge array of other actors and celebrities.

Elisa Donovan

Elisa Donovan's character Morgan Cavanaugh is another figure who's only introduced in Season 5 but quickly becomes an important person in Sabrina's life. Like Roxie, she's a roommate and friend of Sabrina, and even occasionally tutors her. Cavanaugh also dates Harvey when he's brought back to "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" following a brief absence in Season 4.

Donovan's acting has been limited over the last decade with just a handful of major roles. She was part of the cast of the 2017 crime film "MDMA" and had a small part in an episode of "Melissa & Joey," reuniting with her "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" castmate Melissa Joan Hart. She has written the book "Wake Me When You Leave," which follows her life as an actor. Her most recent appearance on television has come in a celebrity special series of "Worst Cooks in America," alongside other '90s stars Tracey Gold, Lori Beth Denberg, and Jennie Kwan (via The Wrap).
