Ashley Tisdale is making magic on the small screen. The former “High School Musical" star has her hands in several television projects, and one of the most highly anticipated the animated Hub series "Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch,” which premieres October 12.
In an October 11 interview with the Associated Press, Tisdale dished on her voice acting role on the show: “[Sabrina is] such a cute, quirky character,” she said. “She's really cool and popular in 'witch world,' but when it comes to her human world she's klutzy and completely opposite. It's fun to play with both sides."
Tisdale’s definitely playing both sides when it comes to her recent acting jobs. She plays Rebel Wilson's sister in the sitcom "Super Fun Night" and she’s set to guest star in the new Robin Williams comedy episode next week of "The Crazy Ones.”
As for the Sabrina character, viewers have seen her animated side and her live action side. The 1996 live-action series "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" starred Melissa Joan Hart as a 16-year old high school student who discovers she's a witch.
But in the early 1970s, Sabrina was an animated character (voiced by Jane Webb) on the Saturday morning series “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” The show was a spinoff of “The Archie Comedy hour,” which was based on the popular Archie comic book series. You can see the intro to the 1970’s “Sabrina” series here.
In 1999, Sabrina was back again, in “Sabrina: The Animated Series,” which aired for one season on ABC. Melissa Joan Hart’s sister Emily took on the voice role of the title character in that incarnation.
"Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch” premieres on October 12 at 12:00 p.m. ET on The Hub.
