Sally & Gillian Owens- Practical Magic
Practical Magic is one of my favourite stories/movies of all time. I loved the bond between Sally & Gillian and feel like I have the same type of relationship with my brother. They practiced domestic magic and were always looking out for each other. It hits close to home for me.
Gillian Holroyd- Bell Book & Candle
Kim Novak played a sophisticated manipulative witch in this film. I absolutely loved her slinky performance.
Cassie Nightingale- Good Witch
Cassie Nightingale is the witch from the Hallmark tv series/movies ‘Good Witch.’ Yes, she’s a little cheesy, but she uses her powers for good and not evil, and is probably one of the kindest witches of all time.
Eglantine Price- Bedknobs & Broomsticks
I also could relate to Eglantine Price from ‘Bedknobs & Broomsticks.’ She was a closet witch who studied her craft at night…….something I can totally relate to.
Vianne Rocher- Chocolat
Vianne Rocher plays the mother in the story ‘Chocolat.’ She adds spoonfuls of magic into her and her family’s life and always makes a home out of nothing. Chocolat and its sequel ‘The Lollipop Shoes’ by Joanne Harris are my favourite books of all time.
Winnie- Hocus Pocus
Bette Midler slayed her performance as Winnie in Hocus Pocus.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
I grew up watching this tv show and loved how it was a coming of age story with a witchy twist. Melissa Joan Hart’s comedic spin was perfect.
As a fellow Ravenclaw, I have a soft spot for Luna Lovegood. She is quirky and weird and makes no apology for it. She is authentic and woo-woo even in the magical world. I think I’d be a lovegood if I wasn’t living in the Muggle world.
I dressed up as Glinda for a couple of Halloweens in a row and sometimes feel as though I am living in one of her rose quartz bubbles. She is a good witch who should have had her own movie by now.
