"Angel" Tv Series - New Character : Alexis Denisof angles for Angel Guest

Wednesday 17 December 2003, by Webmaster

Alexis Denisof, who plays Wesley on The WB’s Angel, told SCI FI Wire that he’s eager to get new wife, former Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Alyson Hannigan, to guest on the show. "Yeah, I’d love to get Aly back over here," he said. "It was so much fun when she visited us last year. I mean, not just because she’s a huge talent, but because I love her and I would like to have her here with me at work."

It’s unclear when or if Hannigan’s Buffy character, Willow, will show up in the current season. "It’s always a question of storyline and scheduling," Denisof said. "And not just scheduling with the show, but scheduling with her life and her career, because there’s a lot of stuff going on for her. ... I don’t know what their plans are, frankly. ... I think they’ve been clever about bringing characters from Buffy over here, in the sense that ... they’ve been smart not to just give away Angel and have it become sort of a tour bus for the Buffy characters. ... When you bring characters from Buffy over, they have to be channeled through what is essentially Angel rather than Buffy."

As for Wesley, Denisof said, "I think we looked at tearing the group apart in past seasons and how that affected Wesley, and so now we’ve kind of knitted the team back together, and they’re faced with a moral dilemma," he said. "In the overall scheme, are ... they fighting for good or for evil? ... I think Wesley’s very confident in himself now and very secure about what he’s doing and has grown into the role of the person who makes hard decisions and stands by them for the good of the greater community and not for his own greater good. So there has been a price to pay, and he has suffered a great deal. I have enjoyed the way that we explore the kind of dilemma of the character through the sacrifices he’s made in order to do the right thing, and I think that’s a metaphor for the whole show, really. I think we’ll continue to find areas to explore with the character on an interior level." Angel airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
