She became a household name and global phenomenon but her sudden death shocked us all.

Most movie and television performers and actresses rely on cosmetics and hair specialists to appear beautiful; Elizabeth did not. I liked seeing her in Bewitched because she was a natural beauty.

So, what happened to Elizabeth Montgomery when she left the 1960s sitcom Samantha Stephens?

The great actress would have been 90 in 2023, but let’s look back at her career in cinema and television before her sad death in 1995.

Elizabeth Montgomery was born on April 15, 1933, in Los Angeles, the daughter of a Broadway actress and a film star, so acting was in her blood from birth.

Robert Montgomery, her father, was a well-known and famous actor.

Elizabeth went to school in California before coming to New York City and enrolling at the Spence School. She attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts for three years after graduation.

She made her television debut as a teenager on her dad’s program, Robert Montgomery Presents. She continued to appear on his program on a regular basis.

Elizabeth had made her Broadway debut in 1953, performing in Late Love. She returned to Broadway two years later, in 1955, after appearing in her debut film, The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell.

Elizabeth found love as her career progressed, but it didn’t last long.

She married Frederick Gallatin Cammann in 1954, yet they divorced a year later. In 1956, she married Gig Young, an award-winning actor, and the couple remained married until their divorce in 1963.

Elizabeth met William Asher, a filmmaker and TV producer, while shooting Johnny Cool. Not only would he be advantageous to her job, but the two would also have a love relationship.

They married in 1963 and have 3 kids.

Elizabeth Montgomery was on Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Loretta Young Show, The Untouchables, and The Twilight Zone, but her most well-known role was as the witch Samantha Stephens on Bewitched, who kept twitching her nose.

Elizabeth rose to prominence because of the spooky comedy, which ran for eight seasons from 1964 to 1972.

Samantha quickly became a household name, and everybody tried to imitate her famed nose twitch.

After the end of her marriage to Asher and the end of her stint on Bewitched, Elizabeth went on to appear in a number of made-for-television movies, many of which were diametrically opposed to her prior role on Bewitched.

Mrs. Sundance (1973), A Case of Rape (1974), The Legend of Lizzie Borden (1975), Black Widow Murders (1993), The Corpse Had a Familiar Face (1994), and Deadline for Murder: From the Files of Edna Buchanan (1995) were among her film credits.

She met Robert Foxworth during the production of Mrs. Sundance. They stayed together until Elizabeth’s death in 1995, despite the fact that they didn’t marry until 1993.

Her career was cut short on May 18, 1995, following a protracted fight with colon cancer.

Her family said she was 57 when she died, while numerous others said she was 62 at the time.

The actress had fought cancer for years and thought she was cancer-free, but she fell sick while shooting Deadline for Murder: From the Files of Edna Buchanan.

It was too late by the time she was able to be checked out in March 1995. The cancer had progressed to her liver.

Elizabeth died peacefully in her sleep at her Beverly Hills home, surrounded by her husband and three kids. A memorial service was conducted at the Canon Theatre in Beverly Hills one month following her death. Renowned jazz musician Herbie Hancock performed music, while Elizabeth’s longtime friend, novelist Dominick Dunne, talked about their early years of friendship in New York City.

The actress was cremated at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.

In a 1992 interview, Elizabeth stated of her many roles that they all have various types of ‘feels’ to them, and that’s probably one of the reasons why she has done them. People tell her that one of their favorite things about what she has done since ‘Bewitched’ is that they never know what she is going to do next.

Such a naturally beautiful woman! It’s a pity she was stolen from us so soon.
