10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Thirteen years ago Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired its last episode. Even though a lot of time has passed, we still miss it. It was one of those shows that does not get old. With Buffy, we got the best of all possible worlds – strong characters, interesting plotlines, as well as lots of action. Back then we didn’t see many empowered women on television, which is why Joss Whedon gave us Buffy. She’s everything that every woman wants to be – strong, beautiful, capable and totally able to kick butt when she has to. Because we all miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer so much, here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about the show.
10. Charisma Carpenter Wasn’t a Teen
Charisma Carpenter – who was cast as 16-year-old Cordelia Chase on Buffy the Vampire Slayer – was 27-years-old when the show first aired. She got the role after Bianca Lawson – who played the vampire slayer Kendra in the show’s second season – turned it down due to other contractual obligations.
9. A Different Willow
Riff Regan was originally cast as Willow Rosenberg; however, the part was recast after the pilot was shot. Apparently Regan’s Willow was a sweet doormat, but she didn’t have the neurotic, eager-to-please quality that Alyson Hannigan brought to the part, so the network later recast the role for the series with Hannigan.
