Movie Flashback: Teen Witch

So over the weekend I actually caught "Teen Witch" playing on TV. This is the 1989 version with Robyn Lively as Louise Miller discovering that she has magical powers, that come into play on her 16th birthday. She uses her powers to become more popular with the goal of making the school hottie, Brad, fall for her.

Here are some fun up-to-date facts on one of my favorite "ugly duckling" movies:

  • Robyn Lively used to be on Aaron Spelling's drama Savannah, where she played alongside George Eads, who is now on CSI.
  • Married to Bart Jackson, who played Zac Efron's father in High School Musical.
  • Played Jessica Andrews, Danie's girlfriend in Karate Kid 3.
  • Still has projects under name which you can check out on imdb here.

  • Dan Gauthier has made appearances on Melrose Place, Beverly Hills, 90210, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Friends (guest starred as Rachel's high school prom date, Chip), Charmed, Ellen, Sisters, Will & Grace, Still Standing and Supernatural.
  • In June of 2003 he went on One Life to Live only to be relieved from his contract in 2006.
  • Funniest part is he married his co-star Lisa Fuller who played Randa, his high school girlfriend, before he went onto Louise.

Other random factoids:
  • Joshua Miller (Louise's younger brother) attended Yale and Antioch Universities and studied creative writing at UCLA. In December of 2003 he completed his MFA in creative writing at the University of Iowa. He has written articles for Harper's Bazaar and Playboy.
  • Tom Hank's wife Rita Wilson was a dancer in the movie. (LOL!)
  • Teen Witch was made into a musical in the summer of 2007.
  • Noah Blake (Rhett, the "Top That" rapping guy) is the son of actor (and murderer?) Robert Blake.
  • Amanda Ingber who played Louise's best friend, Polly went onto be a yoga instructor for some of Hollywood's biggest stars like Jennifer Aniston and Ricki Lake.
