The popular sitcom Bewitched took over television sets during the 60s and 70s, capturing the hearts of many viewers with Elizabeth Montgomery’s sweet and adorable witch character Samantha, her human husband Darrin, and their fun but peculiar life at home. Audiences everywhere fell in love with Montgomery’s nose wiggles, the lively cast members, and the allure of wizardry that encapsulated the series. The show’s popularity granted it eight long seasons and was thus recognized for being the longest-running supernatural-themed television series during its time. Despite its fame, which guaranteed its cast and crew some pretty great credit, there are still so many things that you don’t know about the show. Here are some trivia you may not yet know about this beloved sitcom:
Bewitched star Elizabeth Montgomery played other characters on the show, too!
Fans of the show typically associate Elizabeth Montgomery with the starring role of Samantha in Bewitched, but the star herself performed some supporting roles as well. Besides the charming witch, Montgomery also played the role of Samantha’s hippie cousin Serena who never fails to annoy Samantha to some extent.
The liberal-thinking witch, who could pass for a free-thinking lawyer, easily sports a noticeable birthmark on her cheek that often morphs into different shapes per episode. Despite the uncanny likeness of the two witches, Montgomery managed to deceive some of the show’s crew members the moment she donned Serena’s wig for the first time. If you pay close attention to the cast of characters at the end credits, you may notice Serena’s character is being played by someone named “Pandora Spocks” which sounds just like Pandora’s Box when read aloud.
