Sabrina the Teenage Witch' star reveals he's now a janitor after Geoffrey Owens got job-shamed
"Sabrina the Teenage Witch" star, Nate Richert, reveals that after his stint as an actor, he now works as a janitor. He tweeted about his new job to support Geoffrey Owens after he got job shamed.
On a Twitter post, dated last September 4, Nate Richert revealed that he has been working different jobs, including being a janitor. This came after photos of Geoffrey Owens bagging groceries at Trader Joe’s circulated and got negative comments.
The "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" star tweeted how he was an actor for 32 long years, since she was 8-years-old, and is now currently working different jobs that range from being a maintenance man, carpenter, janitor, and other random jobs that he can take on to help pay his bills at home.

The two stars seem to have had their fair share of fame being on screen, which they both loved. Now, it is on to a new and different phase of their lives, which ultimately, everyone has to move on to. There is definitely no shame in trying to make a living and doing the best you can to provide for yourself and your family. This is exactly what the both of them are trying to do, and the fact that they are proud of it is admirable.

The tweet came in support of news that Geoffrey Owen’s worked at a local Trader Joe's in New Jersey. When Owens’ photos working became an avenue for people to talk and job-shame the actor, it devastated him, but upon seeing the positive comments of support, he suddenly became better and proud. In an appearance on "Good Morning America", Owens said:

“There is no job that’s better than another. It may pay better, it may have better benefits, it may look better on paper. But it’s not better. Every job is worthwhile. No one should feel sorry for me either from a positive or negative perspective because I’ve had a great life and a great career. I’m doing fine.”

I’ve been an actor for 32 yrs (since age 8). I’m extremely lucky to have had any success at all, let alone solid work in film and TV for 6yrs (20yrs ago). I’m currently a maintenance man, a janitor, a carpenter, and do whatever random jobs I can get to pay the bills. I do improv— Nate Richert (@NateRichert) September 4, 2018
and songwrite to maintain my sanity. Actors so very rarely have job security or consistent work, quality healthcare, a reasonable retirement. We are actors anyway because it is who we are at the core, for the love and need to bring the words on the page to life and to make you— Nate Richert (@NateRichert) September 4, 2018
feel them (god, I love to make you laugh!) Not for fame, at least not in the traditional sense. Fame, to me, has only ever meant “maybe more work someday.” A necessary evil because fame = the loss of anonymity, which can be uplifting when it brings someone joy, and hard when mean— Nate Richert (@NateRichert) September 4, 2018
people decide to be mean. GeoffreyOwens is an actor of a very high caliber; long before and long after playing “Elvin” on Cosby. I can’t wait to see what’s next. #GeofferyOwens #ActorsWithDayJobs #SabrinaTheTeenageWitch— Nate Richert (@NateRichert) September 4, 2018
