AngelCordy To Return To Angel ?
Friday 17 October 2003
Joss Whedon, co-creator of The WB’s vampire series Angel, told the Associated Press that he hopes to bring back former regular cast member Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) sometime this season, even if it’s just to wrap up her character’s story. Carpenter left the show at the end of last season, the show’s fourth, and her character was left lying in a coma.
"We definitely want to see Charisma again," Whedon told the AP, according to a report on Zap2it.com. "She has an important part to play this season to bring some closure." If things work out, there’s a chance viewers could see Cordelia around the midway point of the season, Zap2it reported.
Whedon was less sanguine about a guest appearance by Sarah Michelle Gellar, the former star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which spawned Angel. "I’m not banking on it," Whedon said.
Meanwhile, Angel co-star Alexis Denisof (Wesley) repeated to the AP that he’s hopeful that his new wife, Alyson Hannigan, will appear on the show as Willow. "I hope they can talk her into it," Denisof said. "I’ll certainly be trying to talk her into it."
