-Charisma was initially hesitant leaving a hit show, worried she'd be out of a job if Angel didn't last past the 1st season but she was guaranteed a spot on Buffy should Angel not live to fight another season.
-Right before she left Buffy she was frustrated with Cordelia constantly being a damsel and making out with Xander and wanted more action. She of course was rewarded with staking her very first vampire in Graduation Pt.2.
-James of course ended up replacing Charisma twice, having been brought in S4 of Buffy to fill the Cordelia role and S5 of Angel after Cordelia was gone yet again.
-Wesley was supposed to be a 2 episode character on Buffy but they were impressed with Alexis and of course kept him around much longer.
-The cast talked about what storylines they wish they could've explored on Buffy/Angel:
Charisma of course wanted Cordelia to live and see her in Season 5s Wolfram Hart enviroment.
Amy wishes she got to explore the relationship with Gunn or Wesley more, feeling the both never got fully explored to their potential.
J wishes he could've acted out Gunn becoming a vampire (which happens in S6 of Angel comics) and what happened to Gunns parents.
James wanted a verb on the call sheet.( Collapse )( Collapse )
