Dushku on Tru Calling
July 23, 2004
For her one-woman panel discussion of her fantasy series Tru Calling, actress Eliza Dushku walked on stage Friday afternoon singing a verse from "In the Air Tonight," the song that played at the end of the final episode of the first season.
The series will remain on Thursday nights, but move to the 9 p.m. slot following The O.C., Dushku said. Taping began this week and the season premiere is scheduled for Nov. 4.
"There will be a lot of mysterious twists this year," Dushku promised fans.
(More mysterious twists? Last season she mysteriously developed the ability to relive days and save dead people, found out her new boss coincidentally knew about her power — and the fact that her long-dead mother had the same power — and that her father knew her mother’s killer. And we learned that her father actually had her mother killed — because he’s part of some cult that thinks it’s wrong to save people who are supposed to die.)
Dushku said she welcomed the first season’s late addition of Jason Priestley’s Jack Harper character, a sort of anti-Tru who also relives days — to make sure people die.
"The first season got to the point where there was no opposing force for Tru to play against," Dushku said. "I wanted her to stop whining... (Jack) gives Tru a chance to have something to fight against."
Despite starring in her own series, Dushku could not escape questions about her previous role as Faith on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. One fan asked whether she’d appear in any of four Buffyverse movies rumored to be in the works.
Dushku said she hadn’t heard about any of them. (Neither have I. Maybe Joss Whedon will enlighten us during his Sunday panel.)
"I’ve been kinda busy, I’ve been doing this show... I haven’t been in touch with the Buffyverse," she said.
But she said she’d "love" to do a Buffyverse movie — and doesn’t have any other movie deals in the works.
"I’d love to play Supergirl," she quipped, gesturing at her sequined pink "Supergirl" shirt as it reflected rainbows of light on the audience. "Don’t you think I’d make a great ’Supergirl’?"
From the audience came one male fan’s enthusiastic cry: "Save me first!"
