ACTRESSES RETURNING TO ANGEL
Moviehole, quoting a Joss Whedon interview in TV Guide, reports that several past BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL actresses will be appearing on the latter show before it winds down its last season on the WB. Julie Benz will be back as Darla, Angel's lover and the mother of his son Connor, and Juliet Landau returns as Drusilla, both presumably in flashback sequences (though in ANGEL's world, you never know). In addition, Michelle Trachtenberg will appear, reprising her role of Buffy's sister Dawn, and there's a chance Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, will make an appearance. 'If she?s available, she?ll do it,' Gellar's manager says.
So does that mean some resolution of the war for Buffy's affections between Angel (David Boreanaz) and Spike (James Marsters)? 'The question of Angel vs. Spike looms large in Buffy?s mind and in the minds of fans,' says Whedon. 'But I?m not saying whether or not I have decided to answer it...Angel and Spike will ultimately feel some kind of resolve about their conflict over Buffy, [but] it won?t be all about that.'
'The whole point of ANGEL is the idea of the fight and how it never stops,' Whedon continues. 'The finale was always meant to be open-ended in some respect. That doesn?t mean I won?t kill everybody, but I might not [explain] why.'
