WB Week: Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Where Are They Now? - Featured


So...what has become of the Scooby Gang and friends since Buffy The Vampire Slayer concluded its 7 season run in 2003? Speaking of Buffy, be sure to weigh in on our discussion of the show's best and worst seasons.



Sarah Michelle Gellar aka Buffy Summers

Buffy Summers was likely the role of a lifetime for series star Sarah Michelle Gellar. Since then, she has not been out of work, but for me there has been nothing all too memorable. Some of her roles include Scooby Doo 2 (which I'd prefer to forget), The Grudge and its sequel (briefly), some voice work (including TMNT and Robot Chicken) and some movies that I am guessing were direct-to-DVD (Suburban Girl? Anyone? Anyone?). She also remains married to fellow actor (and one-time-hottie back in the day) Freddie Prinze, Jr.. The two have been married since 2002 - which is quite the accomplishment in the land of Hollywood!


Nicholas Brendon aka Xander Harris

Nicholas Brendon has appeared in a string of TV movies since his Buffy days that I doubt any of you have seen. More notably, he was part of the ensemble cast of the short-lived Fox comedy Kitchen Confidential (which was actually quite funny; I recommend checking it out if you never have) and recently had a 4 episode guest arc on popular CBS series Criminal Minds. He got divorced in '06 so I guess he's back on the market!


Alyson Hannigan aka Willow Rosenberg

Willow is definitely one of the more successful Buffy alums. Any fan of quality television will certainly recognize her as Lily from current CBS sitcom: How I Met Your Mother. Hannigan also appeared in some less-than-stellar films including Date Movie and American Wedding. You may have also recognized her during a brief guest stint on fellow WB Week program, Veronica Mars, as Trina Echolls (Logan's sister). Lastly, rather adorably, Hannigan married Alexis Denisof (Wesley Wyndam-Pryce from Buffy/Angel) and is currently pregnant with her first child.


Anthony Stewart Head aka Rupert Giles

So what's become of everyone's favorite Watcher? Anthony Stewart Head appears to have been spending a lot of time in England since the conclusion of Buffy and has a ton of credits - though nearly all in British shows (or stage productions) that I have never seen. He also appeared in the Razzie-nominated Repo! The Genetic Opera alongside Paris Hilton.


Off to Angel...


David Boreanaz aka Angel

Might David Boreanaz be the most successful Buffy alum? He had an immediate job for 5 seasons following Buffy in spinoff Angel starring as Angel (obviously). Boreanaz had a few blinked-and-you-missed-them direct-to-DVD movies, but fully redeemed himself upon landing a starring role as Special Agent Seeley Booth in hit Fox series Bones, currently in its 4th season.


Charisma Carpenter aka Cordelia Chase

Charisma Carpenter of course reprised her role of Cordelia on spinoff Angel for 90 episodes following her time on Buffy. Post-Angel, Carpenter has had steady work - predominately in TV movies and via a ton of guest appearances. You may have caught her in Charmed, Veronica Mars, the short lived Big Shots, and most recently, ABC Family's Greek.

No mention of Giles in Merlin I suppose that's one of his "tons of Credits" in the UK but he is phenomenal in it and itll be making its way across the Atlantic for some time on NBC but aside from that Ive got to say its Angel or Willow who've made the most since the close of the Buffyverse

i think viverl was being sarcastic.... but yes seth green or Oz is probably the most successful star...since he is producing his own hit show Robot chicken, is in family guy, and is in more movies then most. After that Sarah Mechelle Geller whom has been in multiple block busters and is relatively a house hold name. After that i would say willow due to a combination of american pie series and How I Met Your Mother. After that Angel due to bones moslty. and then beyond that spike is braniac on smallvile, and jiles in repoman....

Anthony Stewart Head has starred in loads of English stuff and was quite a famous actor in England before he took on the role of Giles. He is currently in the very funny and re-occurring role of the Prime Minister in 'Little Britain' which is very funny, though full of English humour

James Marsters was vocals in a band called Ghost of The Robot after Angel and then released a solo album, Seth Green is also in the Austin Powers films and Anthony Stewart Head is well known here in the UK although more by face than name (you say full of English humor as if that is a bad thing lol).
