It's been almost 20 years since Dharma & Greg went off the air, but Jenna Elfman says her character is still just as relevant as ever.
Elfman, who played Dharma in the '90s sitcom, appeared on Today Extra, saying she thinks her character was "ahead of her time" in a lot of ways.
"I think Dharma is a great role model for owning who you are, not apologising or needing permission from others to be who you really are,' the 49-year-old told hosts David Campbell and Belinda Russell.

"And I think that she was a little ahead of her time in that way," she continued. "And I think that's a true feminist, someone who just owns who they are as a woman."
Dharma & Greg ran for five seasons from 1997 to 2002, with Elfman receiving six Emmy nominations and a Best Actress Golden Globe.

The actress is currently starring on Fear the Walking Dead, a spin-off series of The Walking Dead, admitting there are some differences in the fandom between the two shows.
"You have fans, like from Dharma & Greg, but this is a fandom, and that is a different entity altogether," she explained, adding: "I love hearing their viewpoints and theories."
