Elizabeth Montgomery was such a beauty. She stole hearts during the 1960s with her portrayal of Samantha on “Bewitched”. It seemed like people everywhere had little crushes on the beautiful Samantha! She was absolutely stunning, and funny to boot! Her acting talent also seemed to add to her ravishing beauty.
As Elizabeth got older, she remained absolutely stunning! It even seemed like she used her special powers to put a spell on herself! She seemed to just get more and more beautiful, almost as if she knew of a secret anti-aging spell. Her beauty lived on, just like her beloved character, the nose-twitching witch, Samantha.
Darrin Was Almost Played By Someone Else
When you think of the show ‘Bewitched’ of course, you immediately think of Samantha and Darrin, played by Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York. But did you know that the iconic role of Darrin was actually offered to someone else? Yes, it is true! Richard Crenna, an actor from the show “The Real McCoys,” was offered the role of Darrin, but passed on it due to his prior engagement on “The Real McCoys.” Thankfully, another actor, Dick York, landed the lead role of Darrin.
Of course, as you know, Dick York did end up leaving the show and was replaced from Sargent. Hard to tell if “Bewitched” would have been an 8 season success story if he started off in the role.
