Amy AckerAmy Acker - About Her Life - FHM Magazine August 2003 Interview
Sunday 3 August 2003, by Webmaster
Very hot photos from this article : http://www.buffy.nu/article.php3?id_article=468
If only our class Poindexter looked this damn hot ! Amy Acker is Angel’s resident bespectacled braniac, but my oh my, she scrubs up good...
Having an Ugly Girl Take off a pair of glasses and shake her hair loose in real life rarely produces an unexpected beauty. More a heinous Doris who bumps into stuff. Blame Hollywood and TV for your disillusionment, as directors insist on casting superfine hotties as mousy social outcasts. For proof, look no further than Buffy spin-off Angel, where bookish demon-buster Winifred "Fred" Burkle is played by the devilishly gorgeous Amy Acker. But one look at the 26-year-old rock-climbing, golf-playing Dallas native’s fine frame begs the question, "Do they really think we’re so stupid as to believe she’s a speccy minger?" But no matter. When allowed to feast on such glorious eye candy (whose film credits include Leo Dicaprio flick Catch Me If You Can and William Shatner directed shocker Groom Lake), we are happy to let those crazy casting agents stretch the knicker elastic of credibility to pinging point and beyond. And so, to celebrate the arrival of series three of Angel on Five, what better way to say goodbye than with the glorious pages you see before.
FHM: Your Angel Character Fred is a bit of nerd but these pics are hot ! Are you normally a very sexy person?
But do you share her brainiac tendencies? What’s 333 multiplied by seven?
Shit you got it right ! You’re good. What about all the fighting in the show - do you have ninja training?
Have you picked up any injuries?
You had ballet training as well...
Can you put your legs behind your head?
Now there’s an image. So do you have a boyfriend, then?
Lucky guy. Is he a normal bloke?
Do you generally prefer celebrities or demons?
You worked with "eccentric" Trek-er Willam Shatner. How was that?
It’s a wig, right?
We believe you ! You also worked as a model in Japan. Were you ever offered cash for your dirty underwear?
That’s a big trade in Japan. Women sell their underwear.
Mainly in shops or on the internet.
They sell them to sexually frustrated japonese men. For sniffing purposes.
To take your mind off it, imagine this: Angel mirrors the Willow and Tara lesbian storyline from Buffy and you have to pick between Cordélia (Charisma Carpenter) and Lilah (Stephanie Romanov).
We’ll do Fred first.
Okay; we’ll be generous.
You said it?
