2. There was a different actress in mind for the witch role

Like most TV shows the casting process was, well, a process. Initially the lead character was named Cassandra and the studio wanted the actress Tammy Grimes to take the part. She, however, didn’t “get” the show and thought as a witch she should be able to stop wars and the traffic in L.A. (good point). She turned down the role, and Samantha as she was later called was taken on by Elizabeth Montgomery.
