AngelAcker Ponders Angel Future
Thursday 22 May 2003, by Webmaster
Amy Acker, who plays Fred on the recently renewed WB series Angel, told SCI FI Wire to expect visits from old Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast members next season. "I know that they’re going to be bringing ... hopefully some of the girls from Buffy, like maybe Alyson" Hannigan, who played Willow, Acker said at the Saturn Awards ceremony on May 18. "We’re all hoping that she’ll come do a couple of episodes at least. We figure [Angel cast member and Hannigan fiance] Alexis [Denisof] has a pretty strong pull. We’re working that angle."
But asked about the reason for the reported departure of Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) as a regular cast member, Acker said, "I haven’t even heard that officially. I guess it’s official, but I’m not sure. ... Probably, she’s been doing it for a long time, and now she has the baby, and she’s a mom. So she has two jobs now."
