In 2018, ‘CW’ revived the 1998 series ‘Charmed,’ which premiered in October the same year. The series like its prequel followed the story of a trio of sisters who possessed the “Power of Three” and used it to protect innocent lives from supernatural “bad guys.” 1998 ‘Charmed’ had the plot around the sisters trying to blend their supernatural abilities with their modern lifestyles, the ‘WB's ‘Charmed’ which ran from 1998 till 2006 for eight seasons featured quite an ensemble during its time. With the series now back for the second time, let's take a look at celebrities whose cameo role in the original series had been forgotten.
Finola Hughes appeared sporadically as a ghost throughout the eight seasons the show ran (except season 6 which didn't appear at all) across a total of nine episodes. She played the role of Patty Halliwell, the mother to the Charmed ones. According to the movie plot, she had been killed by a demon about 20 years before the events in the series. After the series, she was best known for her role as Anne Devane on ABC’s ‘General Hospital.’
James Read also appeared in the supernatural series as a parent to the Charmed Ones. Playing the role of Victor Bennett, James first appeared in season 3 but had recurring roles throughout the show from then onwards till the show’s season finale. His character was the ex-husband of Patty Halliwell and estranged father to the Charmed Ones. Although his failed marriage with Patty was as a result of supernatural complications, he comes back into his daughters’ lives later on even after finding out about their supernatural abilities.
