Anthony Stewart Head on a Giles return

Sunday 10 April 2005, by Webmaster

Buffy’s boss stopped by scifind.co.uk to talk up a new DVD release he’s plugging called "True Horror". Naturally, Tony Head was asked when we’ll see the return of brave bookworm Rupert Giles.

Are you involved in the Animated "Buffy’ series?

Well yes I have...just the pilot but it has gone very quiet on that front, it IS being made and the scripts are really, really good.

Also can you tel us about "Ripper" the proposed "Buffy" spin off centering around Giles?

I have talked to Joss (Weldon) I actually didn’t mention it. [Joss] has worked out a way of doing it , but until he says he is coming over (to the UK) to do it and going to make it I am not going to push him about it. If it happens I will be very happy. If he said it tomorrow would I do it I would make a window. But I am not going to hold my breath. [Joss Weldon] needs to make some movies and so far he has only made ’FireFly’ .

Christopher Eccleston has just said that he wont do a second season of "Doctor Who", do you think you would ever take the role if asked?

I think there have been rumors of me doing it since, well,... for a long time. I think it is very unlikely that they will ask me as I was the readers choice in the ’Radio Times’ and that is enough to put any producer off actually coming to me to ask if I’ll do it. I don’t know to be honest. I’ve done one character in a ’cult’ series [in Buffy] and I don’t want to get a reputation for doing that. But then never say never.
