If you’ve watched Netflix’s latest, “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” and you’re a fan of the original “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” series, then you’ll notice that there’s one huge difference between the two — Salem doesn’t talk in the newly-imagined version!

In a recent interview, 18-year-old actress Kiernan Shipka (who plays Sabrina Spellman) opened up about why she’s glad her trusty sidekick, an infamously black cat, is unique from the original:

“I know the original Salem [from Sabrina the Teenage Witch] is like a meme because he’s so sassy and fun, but I feel like that’s probably its own iconic thing. It’s cool that we’re doing something that’s…different because I don’t think that you could compare to that.”
