Charmed Reboot's Sarah Jeffrey Hits Back At Original Cast's "Pathetic" Criticism

'Charmed' actress Sarah Jeffrey has enough of the original cast members dissing her show.

Sarah Jeffrey has hit back after Rose McGowan claimed the Charmed reboot "sucks".

The 24-year-old star plays lead role Maggie Vera on the CW series — a remake of the original supernatural fantasy drama, which aired from 1998 to 2006 —  but she has blasted Rose's comments as "pathetic".

The Canadian actress shared a TikTok video of original Charmed stars Rose and Holly Marie Combs discussing the new show.

She tweeted: "1/2 You know, I saw this earlier and I refrained from saying anything. I thought, better to just let them shout into the abyss. But I do want to say, I find it sad and quite frankly pathetic to see grown women behaving this way.

"2/2 I truly hope they find happiness elsewhere, and not in the form of putting down other WOC. I would be embarrassed to behave this way. Peace and love to y’all. (sic)"

On the TikTok clip, the pair start talking about the reboot and Rose says: "It sucks ... I've never seen it, I can't say that."

Holly then said: "I didn't hear what you said."

And Rose — who starred as Paige Matthews — replied: "I said it sucks. But I'm happy people have jobs."

Holly — who played Piper Halliwell in the show — didn't say anything about 'Charmed' in the clip, but in January 2018 she hit out at plans for a reboot.

She wrote on Twitter: "Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like [reboot showrunner] Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work. Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye. (sic)"

And in 2018, Alyssa Milano — who played Phoebe Halliwell — admitted she wished producers of the reboot had reached out to the original stars.

She said: "I wish that they would have come to us and we would have been involved since the beginning.

"But having said that, I do hope that it reaches the newer generation and impacts that generation the way ours was able to do for its generation." — BANG
