Darrin Stephens

Character

Darrin Stephens (originally Dick York, seasons 1-5; later Dick Sargent, seasons 6-8) is a mortal married to Samantha. He did not know she was a witch until she told him after their marriage. He works as a Vice President/Account Executive at the McMann & Tate Advertising agency. Dick York was unable to continue his role as Darrin because of a severe back condition, the result of an accident during the filming of They Came To Cordura in 1959. Starting during the third season, York's disability caused ongoing shooting delays and script rewrites. After collapsing while filming the episode "Daddy Does His Thing" and being rushed to the hospital in January 1969, York left the show. Dick Sargent, who would go on to play Darrin in the sixth through eighth seasons, was cast for the role that same month.
