Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, could have been very diverse, as another famous actress was up for the lead role. Melissa Joan Hart, who showed Sabrina Spellman for the whole supernatural comedy, said that she wouldn’t be curious about a reboot as those follow-up projects seldom resonate in the same way as the original.
But the fact that the chance continues to be raised serves as a clear signal that the slight sitcom has had a sizable company in pop culture, with many efficiently recalling Salem or the fact that Hilda and Zelda were aspirationally impassive aunts of the supposed witch.
But, before Hart lit the role, Sabrina could have been entirely separate. Before she changed TV forever as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar was in respect for the part. And, during a discussion on Watch What Happens Life, Natasha Lyonne shows that she could have played Sabrina, too.
The star of Poker Face spoke to Cohen about some of the characters she didn’t bring to play in the 1990s, saying Sabrina and the prominent supportive role of Six on Blossom — which eventually moved to Jenna Von Oÿ. Lyonne’s quote is below:
Natasha Lyonne Is Holding A Moment
Lyonne kept busy in the 1990s with roles in American Pie & But I’m a Cheerleader, among several different projects, and she’s kept busy since with a beautiful performance in Orange is the New Black.
But her turn in another Netflix series, the trippy personality study Russian Doll, cemented what Lyonne could do when she was at the story’s epicenter.
Her performance was weak, magnetic, hilarious, and painful at different turns. Even in Russian Doll season 2, which drew additional muted praise corresponding to the special first installment, Lyonne is as watchable as ever.
She’s followed up her one-of-a-kind performance as Russian Doll’s Nadia with a partnership with everyone talking. Lyonne is the host of the Peacock murder mystery show Poker Face, which she co-created with Knives Out director Rian Johnson.
She plays Charlie Cale, a lady with the extraordinary capacity to detect deception regardless of alibi. Charlie travels across America, uncovering some weird motivations and crimes to solve along the way. Still, she’s also on the road because she’s made an enemy of a prominent casino billionaire.
Six attacks in Lyonne and Johnson and the remainder of the Poker Fake crew are among the reasons Peacock has begun to generate consistently positive headlines for the first period in its history.
It testifies to Lyonne’s ability to center two very different types of comedy owing to her comfortable performance, which lends itself to her natural charisma. Seeing her take on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, would have been intriguing.
