This list is certainly inspired by the wonderful Claire Foy who conjures up a terrific performance in Season of the Witch. We even add a couple of TV’s most charming spell casters for good measure.
5. Kelly Preston – Spellbinder
Kelly Preston is a lovely actress who gave this little thriller the excitement that it needed. She was sexy, vulnerable and she charmed the hell out of me. Whether she was good or evil, it didn’t matter, any guy would’ve come to her rescue.
4. Joan Bennett – Suspiria
It is not often a classic movie star takes on a horror film. Yet Joan Bennett did just that in Dario Argento’s classic tale of witchcraft called Suspiria. Ms. Bennett added a whole lot of class to this thrilling – and most certainly bloody – horror tale.
3. Alyson Hannigan – Buffy the Vampire Slayer
When Alyson Hannigan took on the role of Willow in the hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she became an instant fan favorite. With her goofy charm and her perfect comedic timing, she really helped make the series what it was. It will be hard to remake Buffy without the wonderfully witty Willow and Hannigan’s perfect portrayal.
2. Claire Foy – Season of the Witch
Claire Foy is a wonderful actress. Her work on the BBC series Little Dorrit was tremendous, but now she is mixing things up with Nicolas Cage in Season of the Witch. As “the Witch”, she is absolutely incredible in the film. It would be a difficult feat to not be transfixed by this phenomenal actress.
1. Elizabeth Montgomery – Bewitched
Elizabeth Montgomery is arguably the most famous witch in television history. She was beautiful, hilarious and she did that nose twitching thing that everybody loves. The series will forever live on thanks to this incomparable actress.
