Sophie on her mom’s Tony acceptance speech

Sophie on her mom’s Tony acceptance speech: “First of all, I just love that she turned the entire thing into a bit,” said von Haselberg. “Everybody was sitting there, and all of a sudden she’s saying, ‘Cut that- turn that shit off!’ I think that she took the space in a way that, to me, not a lot of other people are capable of doing. And I just loved watching it. My dad and I were sitting there, half-cringing, half-grinning because it was just so classically her. It was great—and I’m just happy it made such an impression.” (2017) – Sophie von Haseiberg Image may contain: one or more people, people standing, flower, plant and outdoor

(On finding good original material for movies): People these days cannot write from scratch. They can adapt a novel or a play.

(On finding good original material for movies): People these days cannot write from scratch. They can adapt a novel or a play. They can even create something from a newspaper clipping. But when it comes to sitting down with no previous source material and saying these are the characters, let’s find a home for them well they can’t do it.

Put a Spell On You: ‘Hocus Pocus’ Came Out More Than 20 Years Ago & Yes, the Cast Has Completely Grown Up

j14 Put a Spell On You: ‘Hocus Pocus’ Came Out More Than 20 Years Ago & Yes, the Cast Has Completely Grown Up By Jennifer Maldonado 8-16-2017 It’s still summer but the fall will be here soon enough and with that time of year comes Halloween. What better way to celebrate than by watching a classic Halloween movie, like the one and only Hocus Pocus? Yes, we’re talking about the movie that focuses on the Sanderson Sister witches being resurrected on Halloween by Max Dennsion after he lights a black flame candle, and then it’s up to him, his little sister Dani, his crush Allison and a talking cat the witches cursed named Binx to save all the children of Salem. It plays every single year on every channel basically because it is that legendary. Hocus Pocus Sisters C’mon, you’re going to tell me you don’t sing along when Bette Midler, Winnie Sanderson herself belts out “I Put a Spell On You?” We ALL do and there’s nothing wrong with that! Since the movie lives on every year, reaching a new generation each Halloween season and there are even new costumes you can buy to dress up like these iconic sister witches, you kind of tend to forget that this movie was actually released in 1993. As in 24 years ago. And it came out on July 16 during the summer. Interesting. Oh, and it was directed by none other than Kenny Ortega, the man who directed all the High School Musical and Descendants movies? SO MANY LAYERS OF AMAZINGNESS. And yes, all of the young stars in the cast have of course grown up and changed a lot since their appearance in this movie. So let’s take a look, shall we?

Dani Dennsion was played by Thora Birch.

Dani Hocus Pocus Dani was the fearless little sister with all the sass who simply just wanted to spend some time with her brother. She never thought they would spend Halloween together trying to avoid having their souls sucked out of them by witches! But she of course captured all of our hearts, especially when it came to those scenes between her and Max and the beloved Binx. So what about the actress, Thora, now? Thora Birch Now Well, Thora is 35 years old and she’s still acting too. She’s starred in other classic movies like Now and Then and American Beauty and currently has a role on the USA series, Colony. Plus, she had a black cat that looks very similar to Binx, which she named “Panther Dani.”
