Back in the days before Charmed and Sleepy Hollow, The Craft was the ultimate Halloween watch. While school kids used to be desperate to get their hands on Cher Horiwitz’s yellow co-ord, when the film hit the cinemas in 1996, designer handbags were out and spell books were in. Let’s face it, we all wanted to be part of a coven.
But more than 20 years on since Nancy, Sarah, Rochelle and Bonnie attempted to perfect witchcraft, we take a look back at what the stars of the film are up to now… The Plastics, who?
Fairuza Balk - Nancy Downs
Fairuza was so convincing as troubled teenager Nancy, that her co-stars actually reckoned she had some kind of real life magical powers. And after clearly finding her forte with The Craft, she continued down the route of dark drama.
In 1996, Fairuza co-starred in The Island of Dr Moreau, and in 1998 she was featured in The Waterboy alongside Adam Sandler. She's has also done some voice work for TV shows and video games such as Family Guy and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
Nowadays, she’s branched out into writing music under the artist title "Armed Love Militia". Oh, and she loves cats...
Robin Tunney - Sarah Bailey
After her role as Sarah, Robin went on to make her mark in the Hollywood scene. Just one year later in 1997, she starred in (her husband at the time) Bob Gosse's Niagara, Niagara.
You’ll also probably recognise her for her role as Teresa Lisbon in The Mentalist between 2008 and 2015 next to Simon Baker. And she also portrayed Veronica Donovan on the first season of Prison Break, but left the show in the second season.
In 2019, 48-year-old Robin starred in TV series, The Fix, however the show was cancelled after just one season. This year she appeared in Netflix psychological thriller Horse Girl.
Rachel True - Rochelle Zimmerman
When The Craft premiered, True was actually the oldest of the main cast who played a teen at the age of 29 (tbh, she could still pass for a teenager now IMO).
Like her The Craft gal pals, True continued down the acting route starring in comedy drama Nowhere the following year. From 1999 to 2000 she appeared in the ABC drama series Once and Again, and in 2002 True starred in the UPN comedy series Half & Half.
Believe it or not, the 53-year-old is still totally into spirits as she’s currently a tarot-card reader in Echo Park in LA. Check out how amazing she is on Insta...
Neve Campbell - Bonnie Harper
As well as taking the role of Bonnie in The Craft, Canadian-born Neve really made her name playing Sidney Prescott in the slasher movie Scream in 1996. She was nominated for multiple awards and the film was so successful that three sequels were filmed over the next five years and another in 2014.
The 46-year-old also appeared in shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Mad Men and received high praise for her portrayal of LeAnn Harvey in Netflix series House Of Cards. More recently, Neve starred in blockbuster film Skyscraper alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and is set to reprise her role in Scream five, which is due to drop in 2022. These days the mum-of-two is also spending a load time with sons Caspian and Raynor who she shares with husband JJ Field.
Skeet Ulrich - Chris Hooker
The same year The Craft came out, Skeet was cast alongside Neve once again - this time in Wes Craven's Scream. Following the film's huge box office success, he appeared in a steady stream of movies and TV series, including 2000 film Takedown and Emmy-nominated miniseries Into the West.
In 2017, the 50-year-old actor was cast in Riverdale as Forsythe Pendleton Jones II AKA Jughead's dad. However, in February 2020 he announced he was quitting the series after the end of the fourth season, admitting he was "bored creatively".
Christine Taylor - Laura Lizzie
Christine was already a big name thanks to her role as Marcia Brady in 1995's The Brady Bunch Movie. But, following The Craft, the actor's career really skyrocketed and she starred in a long list of blockbuster films including Dodgeball, The Wedding Singer and Zoolander. Christine has been married to Ben Stiller since 2000 after they met while filming a 1999 TV pilot called Heat, Vision and Jack. They share two children together.
