All of the characters in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina have seen significant arcs over the course of the show’s four seasons, but Roz (Jaz Sinclair) in particular has seen a strange development when it comes to their powers. At the beginning of the show, the assumption was that Roz was just your average teenager until she started losing her eyesight and learned that it had something to do with a skill in her family called The Cunning. Thanks to this sixth sense, Roz can see things that others cannot see – she can glimpse the future, see ghosts, see one’s true self, and a few more. Even so, Roz and Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) have always been classified as two different types of rulers.

In Episode 3 of Part 4, Marie LeFleur (Skye Marshall) informs Roz that she really is a witch. It turns out that the Walker women knew from the start that they were witches, but because they were godly Christians, they couldn’t use that word. To protect themselves from being burned at the stake, they adopted the term “crafty women”. This is exactly a pretty significant identity shift for Roz, so I had to ask how Sinclair felt about the matter. This is what she said:
“I was partying. I told everyone who would listen to me. I was very happy and I am still very happy about it. It’s a dream come true, and rightly so, because I’m just a huge Harry Potter fan, witch fanatic in general. One of the reasons I wanted to be on this show was because of the fun element of it, and we just made such a cool world, and it was an extra pleasure for me to capture this character that I’ve spent so much time in and to let them go through the doors of the academy. ”
Sinclair also discussed how this new information affected her view of the character. Was Roz still the same person or does knowing she’s a witch change everything?
“I think Roz always knew she was more powerful than she allowed herself to be. I think Roz is like, I’ll be the president of the student council and I’ll be a cheerleader and I’ll be more of a stand-up than her, how powerful am I? So I don’t know that she was so surprised. That kind of made sense. ”
