AngelCharisma Carpenter Rules Out Angel
Wednesday 25 August 2004, by Webmaster
Former Angel star Charisma Carpenter told TV Guide Online that she’s not interested in reprising the role of Cordelia Chase in any proposed Angel TV movies or feature films. "You know, I’m not interested," she told the site. "Not because of [star] David [Boreanaz] or anyone I worked with. I think we’re all just done. I don’t think my fans should be offended, because they’re not Angel- or Buffy-specific. They’ve proven over time that they’ll follow me no matter what I do, so I’m not afraid of taking anything away from them, and I hope they wouldn’t feel that way." Boreanaz has also said he’s not interested in doing a TV movie, but might consider a feature film.
Carpenter will guest-star this fall as a clairvoyant in at least two episodes of The WB’s witch series Charmed. (Her first appearance airs Sept. 26, TV Guide reported.) As with Cordelia, Carpenter agains plays "another psychic!" she said. "At least I’m not in a coma on this show. They’re both sassy girls, but this character is more of a temptress than a smartass. She’s toying with Leo [Brian Krause]."
As for whether her character, simply called "Seer," appears in more episodes, Carpenter said: "I’m happy to do more. It would depend on whether my pilot is picked up. I’m thrilled to be here, because I have a relationship with Holly Marie Combs [Piper]. We did my ABC Family movie See Jane Date together, and we’re both new moms. It’s also interesting to be back doing this supernatural genre. I know it, and it’s familiar."
Carpenter’s pilot is for a midseason replacement for UPN. "It was called Play Nice, but now it’s called Like Cats and Dogs," she said. "I’m the girl on the show, and it’s about my life with my fun-loving brother [played by Canadian actor Tyler Labine]. I’m an uptight lawyer, and he comes to live with me and my houseful of dogs."
