‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’: Emily Haine talks Elspeth, cats and more!

We chatted with Emily Haine about her role in the Netflix show.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season two dropped in April on Netflix and it was as dark and devious as ever! There was a new threat, a new vibe, a new Sabrina AND a new character named Elspeth played by Emily Haine. We chatted with Emily Haine about her new character, Salem, and the vibe on set of this chilling show.

Pure Fandom: What can you tell us about your character in the new installment of The Chilling
Adventures of Sabrina?

Emily Haine: Elspeth is a young witch at the Academy of the Unseen Arts. Sabrina’s new
pal, they chillin’.

We saw that you are a huge cat lover! Did you have a chance to work with Salem during The
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

I haven’t had a scene with Salem but I was on set shooting when they came into work. There’s like 10 or so black cats who play Salem. All with different personalities to best portray Salem’s various moods. It’s hilarious. They even have this orange cat that they bring in to rile up the Salem cat if they need to capture him hissing. Good stuff.

CAOS is such a dark show, what was the vibe like on set?

The cast and crew on Sabrina are like a high functioning family. Everyone really appreciates how special it is be there. Good vibes are at the core of this project with Roberto. Kiernan invited me to her birthday party. There’s a million examples like that. I feel so welcome and accepted there.

You are also a musician! What bands are you loving right now?

Thank you for noticing 😉 Sincerely, Future Pollution by Timber Timbre, The Courtneys II by The Courtneys and Longwave – Bonny Doon are albums I’m repeating at the moment.

Are you a fan of horror movies? (If so, what’s your favorite?)

I’m afraid of my own shadow, but I love horror. It’s between Rosemary’s Baby, The Birds, and Little Shop of Horrors.

What you most excited for fans to see in the new The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina episodes?

Nabrina and Dorvin!

What’s up next for you? 

I’m on another show right now called Unspeakable which is airing on SundanceTV in America and streaming on CBC Gem in Canada. It’s a drama mini-series based on arguably the worst cover up in Canadian medical history, the tainted blood scandal. It directly affected the life of our show creator, Mr. Robert Cooper. Give it a watch! And if you’re in Vancouver come out and see some comedy at Little Mountain Gallery off Main Street. You might even catch me in a show 😉

Awesome! Thanks so much for chatting!

Watch Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 on Netflix now!
