Whatever Happened To The Cast Of Sabrina The Teenage Witch

For kids who grew up in the '90s, "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" was more than just another TV show — it was a way of life. Based on the comic book series, the charming, magical show followed Sabrina, her two aunts, and her talking cat, Salem. Sabrina was, of course, a teen who learns she has magical powers on her 16th birthday.


After its release in 1996, the show was a huge hit. It spawned an animated series, several TV movies, and a Netflix reboot in 2018. While "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" lives on in our culture, you may be wondering what happened to many of the show's original stars. While the show introduced us to a few familiar faces, some cast members seem to have vanished into thin air. Wondering what happened to the amazing cast of this classic show? We've got you covered. Read on to discover what the gang has been up to since the show ended back in 2003.

Melissa Joan Hart became a mother and turned her focus to directing and producing

The leading lady of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Melissa Joan Hart, was both relatable and aspirational. She was the sweet girl next door and the cool high schooler with a secret. Kind of like a magical Lizzie McGuire or Hannah Montana. It's no wonder the show became so popular.


Prior to starring in "Sabrina," Hart had made a name for herself in the show "Clarissa Explains It All." However, after "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" came to an end, she decided to slow things down. While she's appeared in many TV projects as an adult, such as "Melissa & Joey" and a number of holiday TV movies, she's largely kept her daily life out of the spotlight. 

Notably, she's also turned her focus to directing and producing. She explained to Glamour, "Of course naysayers say, 'You disappeared! You're not working anymore!' I'm like, 'Well, actually, I'm doing exactly what I want to be doing, and what I always dreamt for myself at an older age in this industry.'" Hart has directed multiple episodes of "Young Sheldon," along with other TV shows and TV movies. Plus, according to Instagram, she's been pretty busy raising three sons!


Caroline Rhea, who played Hilda, is still acting in kids' shows and doing standup comedy

Caroline Rhea played the slightly ditzy Aunt Hilda on "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." Hilda was fun and laidback in comparison to her older sister Zelda. You may recognize Rhea from some of her other famous roles. In the early 2000s, she also appeared in "The Perfect Man," "Christmas with the Kranks," and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody." Since then, Rhea has continued acting, primarily in family shows and movies. She voiced Linda Flynn-Fletcher on "Phineas and Ferb" for eight years and also appeared in the "Bruno & Boots" TV movies.


More recently, she has starred as Judy in "Sydney to the Max," a Disney channel show. In the show, she plays Judy as a grandmother and as a mother. As she told BUILD Series, dressing up as an older woman was an interesting experience. "It's very interesting playing different ages. How you get the response you get," she said.

Rhea also appeared in the Netflix reboot of "Sabrina" as her original character. As Entertainment Weekly explained, getting the characters into the new "Sabrina" universe was a little confusing, but it totally paid off.

Beth Broderick, who played Aunt Zelda, went on to appear in popular shows like Lost

Beth Broderick played Sabrina's other aunt, Zelda. She was the stricter, more serious aunt. Prior to "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Broderick had been acting for about a decade, with roles in primetime TV shows. After her time on "Sabrina" came to an end, she continued acting in television, with roles in "CSI," "ER," "Cold Case," and more. Her biggest role was probably on "Lost," when she played Diane Janssen for five episodes or when she played Annie B in "Sharp Objects" alongside Amy Adams (via IMDb).


As Broderick explained in an interview with Martin Bentsen, she was initially told to avoid doing television roles. "There was a big stigma about doing television," she said. Apparently, most actors struggled to cross over into movies at the time. For Broderick, doing television was fine with her. At the time, she was helping to put her sister through college, so she was happy to work as often as possible.

Like Caroline Rhea, Broderick also appeared in the "Sabrina" reboot. "It was so much fun," she told Digital Spy. "It was very moving, too, because we really like the new cast, and we always wished them well."

Nick Bakay, who voiced Salem the cat, continued working as a voice actor and a TV producer

"Sabrina the Teenage Witch" certainly would not have been complete with Salem, the talking cat. The cat was voiced by voice actor and producer Nick Bakay. While Bakay has had some onscreen roles in films like "Zookeeper," his focus has always been voice acting. In fact, he has reprised the character of Salem for over 10 different projects, according to IMDb, including "The Late Late Show with James Corden" and "The Simpsons."


In addition to his acting work, Bakay has kept busy since the end of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" with off-camera work. Bakay, who actually penned 12 episodes of "Sabrina," went on to write "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," "Zookeeper," a story for "Young Sheldon," and the show "Mom." As a producer, Bakay has worked on "Two and a Half Men," "Mom," and "The Kominsky Method," to name a few. This talking cat has certainly been busy! However, his role as Salem is still his biggest claim to fame. As he told Refinery29, "I've often joked I could run for president because the subliminal sound of my voice would get me a lot of votes."

Nate Richert, who played Harvey on Sabrina, is a singer and actor

Who could forget Harvey from "Sabrina the Teenage Witch"? Harvey was Sabrina's dependable high school love interest who never disappointed the show's fans. With his Leonardo DiCaprio-esque hair, he was the poster boy for a '90s teen heartthrob.


Nate Richert, who played Harvey on the show, has continued acting — though you might not recognize him without his cascading locks! The actor has only appeared in a few projects since playing Harvey. In 2020, he appeared in an episode of "Home Work," but hadn't had any acting credits before that since 2006. 

Richert clearly doesn't spend too much of his time acting — instead, he's been busy directing short films, according to his website, and working on his music. And when his creative work dries up, Richert doesn't mind getting his hands dirty with some side jobs. As he tweeted in 2018, "I'm currently a maintenance man, a janitor, a carpenter, and do whatever random jobs I can get to pay the bills. I do improv and songwrite to maintain my sanity." It's nice to see Richert, who got engaged in 2019, being so open about the struggles of the entertainment business.


Jenna Leigh Green, aka Libby from Sabrina, became a well-known Broadway star

Jenna Leigh Green played Libby Chessler on "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," the head cheerleader at Sabrina's high school and a bit of a bully. Since her role on the show, Green has continued acting. She's had guest roles on shows like "ER," "Cold Case," "Castle," and "Bones," and she's also appeared in several films (via IMDb). Theater fans may also recognize her name. In 2000 and 2004, Green played Ivy in the famous off-Broadway musical "Bare." Then, in 2005, she took on the role of Nessarose, the Wicked Witch of the East, in the musical "Wicked." Since then, she's played the role a total of three times, even reprising the role on Broadway in 2021 as a replacement, as noted by Broadway World.


As Green explained to Bleep Magazine, her goal was always acting in theater. "I kinda fell into TV," she said. "Theater is where I thought I would end up." And while Green has had plenty of success both on stage and on screen, it hasn't always been easy. "Surviving in this type of career choice is not for everyone. ... I wouldn't be happy doing anything else," she said.

Martin Mull has been in dozens of comedies over the years

Martin Mull played the mustachioed Principal Willard Kraft in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." His character also dated both of Sabrina's aunts over the course of the show. Mull was certainly not new to TV when he took on the role. His career began back in the 1970s with roles in comedic TV shows and films. When "Sabrina" finished, his success continued. He took on voice roles in "Recess," "Teamo Supremo," and "Danny Phantom," and he appeared in "The Ellen Show, " "Life with Bonnie," "Two and a Half Men," "Veep," and "Arrested Development." In fact, name any primetime comedic TV show, and he's probably appeared in it at least once (via IMDb).


As Mull told Smashing Interviews, despite his huge success in acting, his main interest has always been painting. "It's been the most important thing I do because it's personal, you know," he said. As for his spare time, Mull seems to be a dedicated family man. He likes to "sleep and hang out with [his] wife." The pair have a daughter, Maggie, who is a writer for "Family Guy."

Sabrina's Soleil Moon Frye became a voice actor and documentary maker

You probably remember Soleil Moon Frye as Roxie, who was Sabrina's college roommate. Frye may have already been a familiar face, as she played the loveable foster child Punky Brewster back in the '80s. Since taking on the role of Roxie in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Frye's main focus has been on voice work. She has an impressive list of credits, including Jade in "Bratz," Zoey in "The Proud Family," and Aseefa in "Planet Sheen" (via IMDb).


The year 2021 was a big one for Frye. She returned to her famous character Punky Brewster for a 10-episode reboot, and she released a documentary called "Kid 90" about her upbringing as a child star in the '90s. As Frye explained on "The View," the documentary used footage that she had shot of herself as a teenager and had never seen since. "It was completely life-changing. I really did go into Pandora's box," she said of the experience of rewatching the tapes.

Frye split from her husband, producer Jason Goldberg, in 2020. They have four children together (via People).

Elisa Donovan went on to work as a writer and actor after playing Morgan on Sabrina

Elisa Donovan played Morgan, one of Sabrina's college roommates and one of her best friends. Prior to landing the role on "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Donovan was already an up-and-coming star, having appeared in "Clueless" as Amber and in "Beverly Hills, 90210" as Ginger. Since "Sabrina," Donovan has continued acting, and her career has been pretty steady. You may recognize her from "The Lake," the "Dog Who Saved Christmas" series," or "In Gayle We Trust" (via IMDb).


While Donovan's career trajectory looks pretty impressive from the outside, it wasn't always easy. As she told Hollywood Life, the period straight after the end of "Sabrina" was particularly difficult. Her dad died and an important romantic relationship came to an end. "It was really the combination of those three things that made it so difficult," she said. Donovan recounted her story in the book "Wake Me When You Leave." Even her close friends, like the show's star Melissa Joan Hart didn't realize what a difficult time she was having. Donovan told Closely Observed Frames that she's working on writing and directing a movie version of her memoir, too.

Donovan has one daughter, Scarlett (via People).


Lindsay Sloane, aka Valerie from Sabrina, has appeared in loads of well-known comedies

Lindsay Sloane played Valerie, who was Sabrina's best friend through the second and third seasons of the show. Since appearing in "Sabrina," Sloane's biggest role was in 2000 as Big Red in "Bring It On." She also appeared in "The Stones," "How I Met Your Mother," several "Funny or Die" videos, "Horrible Bosses 2," and "The Odd Couple" (via IMDb). In 2019, she played Shailene Woodley's sister in the film "Endings, Beginnings." It's safe to say that Sloane has been pretty busy with acting even if she isn't a household name.


As Sloane explained in an interview with Red Carpet News TV in 2019, appearing in "Endings, Beginnings" was an exciting new experience for her as the movie was essentially entirely improvised. "It was so, like, liberating and exciting and exhilarating," she said. She added that she was working on developing a new TV show.

And the entertainment industry isn't the only thing keeping Sloane busy. In 2017, Sloan welcomed her second daughter (via People).

David Lascher switched his focus to writing and directing

David Lascher played Josh, the owner of a local coffee shop and a one-time love interest of Sabrina's. Lashcher certainly wasn't new to the TV scene when he landed the role, having already appeared in "Full House," "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Blossom," and "Clueless." However, after the show came to an end, his acting career slowed down, too. He appeared in a few TV shows and films, such as "Always and Forever" and "Melissa & Joey," but his main focus seems to have switched to writing and directing (via IMDb).


As Lascher explained to IndieWire, his first film that he wrote and produced was called "Sister," and it was "very personal" to him. "'Sister' is so meaningful to me as are the issues of childhood ADHD diagnoses and treatments which the film portrays," he said. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. He also went on to write and direct a TV series called "Cruisers & Shakers."

As Lasher told IndieWire, he lives in L.A. with his wife and three children.

Trevor Lissauer, who played Miles, has been making music

Trevor Lissauer played Miles, Sabrina's extraterrestrial-obsessed college roommate. Since appearing on "Sabrina," Lissauer continued acting, appearing in films like "Eden's Curve" and "Lionhead" (via IMDb). In addition to his acting, Lissauer has been busy making music. As his bio states on his agent's website, Lissauer not only starred in "Eden's Curve," but he also contributed to the film's score. He has composed musical scores for other projects as well.


Lissauer, who released an album in 2001, spoke on the "Screen Freaks" podcast about his career in 2020. As he explained, he's still very invested in his music career. His band, Animal Cloud, has EPs and albums available on online streaming services, but all of them are self-made. "Our last four projects ... all of those are just us. No outside people doing stuff for us," he said.

Lissauer also created the YouTube children's channel "Swaddly and Dean." Seems like Lissauer has stayed very busy!

Alimi Ballard, who played Quizmaster Albert, has dozens of impressive film credits under his belt

Alimi Ballard played Quizmaster Albert, the witch who trained Sabrina in Season 2 of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." Even though Ballard didn't have a massive part in the show, he was certainly memorable. And chances are that you've come across him numerous times since his days as the Quizmaster.


The actor has appeared in dozens of TV shows and films including "American Dreams," "Numb3rs," "Fast Five," "CSI," and more (via IMDb). He also voiced the Falcon in "The Super Hero Squad Show." More recently, he played Dr. Robert Dubois in "Queen Sugar" and Marcel Dumas in "Queen of the South." As Ballard explained in an interview with Theater Corner, his career turned around after "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." Apparently, it's still the role that he is most often recognized for.

Ballard lives in L.A. with his wife and two children (via Hitched).

Michelle Beaudoin seems to have disappeared from Hollywood after playing Jenny on Sabrina

You probably remember Michelle Beaudoin as Jennifer, or Jenny, one of Sabrina's best friends early on in the show. After Season 1, Jenny disappeared and, somewhat mysteriously, wasn't mentioned again. In an interview with HuffPost, Melissa Joan Hart explained that there were a number of factors that went into Jenny's departure from the show, such as contract disputes, the need for new perspectives, and behind-the-scenes "politics" with writers.


Sadly, Beaudoin didn't do much acting work after playing Jenny. Throughout the '90s and early 2000s, she appeared in a few films and shows like "Sunset Strip," "Escape Velocity," and Cold Squad" (via IMDb). Her last role was in 2006 in a French series called "Le coeur a ses raisons." Since then, she hasn't really been heard of since.

She is, however, on Twitter, where her bio states that she is a mom and actress. She also seems to be involved with the music app Cuelr.
