Wanna feel old? Hilary Duff dressed up like Wendy the Good Witch on October 17 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film! Can you believe it’s really been that long since this Halloween classic premiered?
“Well just in time for Halloween @snapchat gave me this little treat of a filter #caspermeetswendy #wendythegoodwitch #20yearsago?! #ahhhhhhh” Hilary captioned her adorable Instagram. The pic shows a side-by-side of her 7-year-old self filming Casper Meets Wendy. The other side is present day Hilary Duff, who is dressed in an identical Wendy the Good Witch costume, and making the same shocked expression!
So cute! Hilary looks beautiful, and like she hasn’t aged a day in two decades. Most people know Hilary as a child actress from her amazing Disney show Lizzie McGuire, and DCOMS like Cadet Kelly, but her acting career actually began long before that. Casper Meets Wendy was her first film! While the movie came out in 1998, she was filming in 1996, aka 20 years ago! What a milestone!
Hilary was definitely our teen queen, and now we’re loving her in her adult roles. We were obsessed with her as Olivia Burke on Gossip Girl. And she’s been killing it on one of our favorite shows, Younger, as Kelsey Peters. Watching her with Sutton Foster every week on the show is so fun! Maybe the best career news of all is the fact that she’s finally working on more music!
Hillary’s responsible for some of the best jams turned MTV reality show theme songs, like “Come Clean.” She released the highly-anticipated single “Sparks” in 2015, and the awesome music video poked fun at the fact that people found out she was using Twitter after her split from husband Mike Comrie! After 20 years in the biz, we can’t wait to see what Hilary does with the next 20!
