"I'm not religious in terms of believing in organized religion," she said. "I do believe in our connectivity through metaphysics. I believe that there are strange things that happen that we can't account for."
It's a good thing because in her latest incarnation, Ormond is playing a witch on Lifetime's new series, "The Witches of East End," premiering Sunday.
Ormond, who's best known for her roles in "Sabrina," "Legends of the Fall," "Mad Men" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," has already done considerable research on witches.
"I feel I've worked a number of different projects where I've looked into aspects of being a witch," she says. "We did 'The Crucible' when I was at drama school. I did do a pilot where I was a witch, but it didn't get picked up."
"The Witches of East End" premieres at 10 p.m. Sunday on Lifetime.
