With Halloween on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to binge-watch our favorite paranormal films and television shows, many of which feature iconic witches.
Here is a list of 10 of the best witches in pop culture who cast charms, fight evil, and, occasionally, fly by broomstick.
The Halliwell Sisters fought forces of evil on “Charmed.”
The long-running drama “Charmed” followed Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) Halliwell as they navigated their powers and killed demons (and fell in love with a few). When Doherty exited the show, Rose McGowan stepped into her shoes as her half-sister Paige.
The CW is releasing a “Charmed” reboot on October 14, featuring a new set of sisters tasked with saving the world. Though a lot was changed for the revival, strong themes of sisterhood are promised to carry on in the remake.
Sally and Gillian Owens from “Practical Magic” were cursed in love.
In the ‘90s, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman starred in “Practical Magic” as two witches cursed to live without love. By leaning on each other and their magical aunts, Sally and Gillian Owens master their powers to defeat the curse placed upon them as children.
In a red carpet interview at this year’s Oscars, Kidman and Bullock ran into each other and reminisced about old times on set.
“When we shot [Practical Magic] together, I asked her to get some tequila,” Bullock laughed. “She came back with her own tequila but we drank it anyway.”
“I love that movie, I showed that movie to my kids,” said Kidman. “It’s a little above them, we were really good sisters!”
“I think we are,” replied Bullock. “And we’re really good drinkers, too.”
Sabrina from “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” was raised in a household of witches.
Melissa Joan Hart starred as the titular Sabrina on “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” The sitcom revolves around Sabrina’s struggles to hide her powers and survive high school, with the help of her kooky aunts Hilda and Zelda and Salem the talking cat.
In 2016, Hart celebrated the 20th anniversary of the show’s premiere in an interview with ABC News.
“I honestly can’t believe it’s been 20 years,” said Hart. “I feel old! Sabrina was such a fun character. She was always full of surprises. It looks like I still have the magic touch after all these years.”
