The Destiny Of The 'Bewitched' Cast

Bewitched is an American fantasy series that ran from September 17th, 1964 to March 25th, 1972. The show during and after its time gained so much positive recognition and till date, ABC still airs reruns.  The eight-season-show was plotted around a woman, Samantha who fell in love with a New York Ad exec, Darrin Stephens. Soon after their marriage in the sitcom's first episode, Darin began to unravel some truth about his bride; like how she is indeed a witch. These revelations led to what became a full-blown show. 

With the show's immense success; finishing as the number two-rated show in America during its debut season and later being ranked #50 on Billboard‘s “TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time," it is only right that we remember the great actors and actresses who made it happen.Sadly, the cast of main characters have passed on, so we’d like to take this moment to remember the show and the characters that made it so enjoyable for all of us.

Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha Stephens

Elizabeth Montgomery born on April 15, 1933, in Los Angeles was known for her immense talent during her lifetime. The actress who died at the age of 62 played Samantha, a lovable witch on the show.  Her character, one of the lead acts, was married to Darrin who unlike his wife was human.
