Eliza Dushku talks Faith the Vampire Slayer

By Whitney Milam
HollywoodNews.com: Eliza Dushku was most recently seen as Echo, the persona-shifting ‘doll’ kicking ass and taking names, as Eliza’s characters are wont to do, on Joss Whedon’s short-lived Fox series Dollhouse–but even today, she’s still best known for a different role in another, longer-lasting and much more popular cult classic Whedon series: that of Faith, Sarah Michelle Gellar’s dark-haired slayer frenemy on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Dushku recently attended the Supanova Pop Culture Expo, where she talked about her years as Faith, and her character’s many complexities, with enduring appreciation. “What I loved about her was that even when she was completely in the dark side, completely out of her mind and killing people and torturing people, she was written in a way, and we played her in a way, that people still felt for her, people still pulled for her. It wasn’t just black and white, good and evil, it was this really complex grey area and people loved her in spite of everything she did.”
Like James Marsters’ peroxide blond British vampire Spike, Faith proved to be such a breakout character that the few episodes Dushku was originally signed for were quickly expanded to extend the entire third season of Buffy and for several more after that, ending with appearances on Buffy‘s spin-off series Angel as well. “I realized at a certain point how incredible that role was when I had young women coming up to me on the streets and writing me letters, telling me stories of how they had been abused, and when my character came on Buffy they confronted their abusers,” Dushku says of her character’s inspiring popularity. “It just empowered all these young women.”
Dushku turned down the chance for a Faith spin-off in order to do Tru Calling after Buffy‘s end.

Smallville’s James Marsters gets engaged

HollywoodNews.com: James Marsters was known as the famous Spike character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Since then he has appeared on “Smallville” and “Without A Trace,” among others. Now he has something else to be happy about and it doesn’t involve landing a new gig.
The 47-year-old has just proposed to longtime girlfriend Patricia Rahman, who is only 24 years old, reports People.. The two met each other when he was playing with his band in Amsterdam. In 2006 he told them, “I met her backstage and got her phone number, but then my jeans were cleaned out by the crew and they threw it out. I’d given her my number, but she took down one digit wrong. It took her six months to call all of the different combinations.”
The wedding is scheduled to take place this fall.
