Here's What Tabitha From 'Bewitched' Looks Like Now
If you were watching TV in the '60s and early '70s, you probably rememberBewitched, the beloved sitcom about a witch named Samantha (played by Elizabeth Montgomery) who marries a mortal man and decides to live life as a normal, suburban housewife. For most of the show's eight-season run, Erin Murphy played the couple's daughter, Tabitha. Today, the 52-year-old is keeping busy as a mom of six, while also acting alongside other former child stars—Alison Arngrim ofLittle House on the Prairie, Dawn Wells ofGilligan's Island, and Michael Learned fromThe Waltons—in a new hilarious web series calledLife Interrupted.
In fact, Erin frequently hangs out with the other child stars of her era, meeting up with them at a potluck or barbecue every few months or so, she told Fox News. It was at such a gathering that Alison approached Erin and pitchedLife Interrupted, which revolves around the midlife crisis of a former child star and his dysfunctional family. "I say no to almost everything. I have a bit of a reputation for being picky about the things I will and won't do. But it turned out that this project had a group of my good friends," Erin said. "The thing that made me say yes was when Alison said, 'You'll be playing my wife!' I said, 'I'll do it!' It just sounded like a lot of fun."
She looks back on herBewitcheddays with fondness and particularly cherishes the close relationships she formed with her TV mom and dad, Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York (who was later replaced by Dick Sargent for health reasons).
"[Elizabeth] really was like a mom to me. I definitely think of her more like a family member than a co-worker. And I think it's because when I was on set, it was just me. My parents weren't standing there next to me [while I was working]. So I looked up to her as family, as a parent almost," Erin told Fox. "I was very lucky because I stayed in touch with people after the show was over, so I had the pleasure of hanging out with Dick Sargent as an adult and having phone conversations with Dick York. As a kid, I was very close with both of them. I grew to admire them as adults because they were such great men."
After the show ended in 1972, Erin said she focused on being a regular kid, going to camp and hanging out with friends in her neighborhood, which helped keep her grounded. She's turned down a lot of jobs over the years and says right now, her focus is raising her children and enjoying life. "I have kids at home, and I plan on traveling more," Erin said. "I would like to do another series at some point, but I do want to spend time with family and friends, just laugh and enjoy life more.
