Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Where Are They Now?
It's been 20 years since Buffy The Vampire Slayer first hit our screens, igniting our obsession with all things Sunnydale - but where are our beloved cast members now?
We've tracked them down (read: Googled them) so you don't have to.
Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy)
Buffy Summers, ultimate girl crush for life, almost made us pee our pants last week when she suggested she’d be up for a Buffy reboot. More on that HERE. Reigniting teenage dreams aside, SMG has been pretty busy post-Buffy, voice acting in TV series like Robot Chicken, Star Wars Rebels and American Dad!
She was also in The Grudge and, of course, played Daphne in the Scooby Doo movies alongside husband Freddie Prinze Jr. as Fred. The pair have been married since their OK! Magazine wedding in 2002 and have two children, Charlotte and Rocky. Next up for SMG: a cookbook titled Stirring Up Fun With Food, set for release in April.
Nicholas Brendon (Xander)
Buffy’s BFF has worked pretty steadily since the end of Sunnydale, most notably in TV show Criminal Minds. Sadly Nicholas has struggled with alcoholism and depression, even attempting suicide on multiple occasions, though the 45-year-old is publicly fighting his mental illness with the hashtag #kickingdepressionintheballsack.
Alyson Hannigan (Willow)
We all know that the Slayer’s sidekick went on to star in the American Pie movies, but what else has Alyson Hannigan been up to in the 14 years since Buffy ended? Well, she was also on this little show you might know called How I Met Your Mother for almost 10 years, AND she married her Buffy co-star Alexis Denisof (Wesley) back in 2003. Alyson and Alexis have two daughters, Satyana and Keeva, and they’re basically the cutest family ever.
James Marsters (Spike)
Everyone’s favourite vampire starred in both Buffy and Angel, before bagging roles in Without A Trace, Torchwood, Smallville and… wait for it… P.S. I Love You! A singer and guitarist, James has also toured as both a solo artist and as lead singer of band Ghost Of The Robot. He’s been married to Patricia Rahman since 2011, but has a son – Sullivan – with his first wife, Liane Davidson.
Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn)
Buffy’s little sister is probably best known in recent years for playing the wicked Georgina Sparks on Gossip Girl, but did you know she’s also a writer? Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in November 2016, Michelle said she’s now writing “a period piece that spans about a 30-year decade, starting in the ’50s. It’s a true story.” 100% looking out for that one.
David Boreanaz (Angel)
A series actor through and through, David has gone on from Buffy and Angel, to Bones. He’s played Seeley Booth since 2005, though he does have a side gig in nail polish – seriously. Along with his wife, Jaime Bergman, and two of their friends, David launched Chrome Girl in 2013. David and Jaime have two children, Jaden and Bella.
Anthony Head (Rupert)
Buffy’s Watcher went on to become Prime Minister… in Little Britain, anyway. He’s had plenty of recurring TV roles over the years, appearing in Dominion, Free Agents and Merlin, and you may have spied him playing the father of Luke Treadaway in 2016 movie A Street Cat Named Bob. He and partner Sarah Fisher have been together since 1984 and have two daughters, Emily and Daisy.
