Buffy The Vampire SlayerSupernatural Executive : "We Won’t Be One Tree Hill with Monsters, We Admire Buffy"
Sunday 22 July 2007, by Webmaster
There’s a thin line between love and hate in Supernatural...
Kripke: True. We’re going to see how it goes. We’re going to see, ’Is there chemistry? Are there sparks?’ What we’re trying to do is what shows that we admire tried to do, like The X-Files and Buffy. Yes, The X-Files is about Mulder and Scully, but Skinner grew to play a part. The Lone Gunmen grew to play a part. Buffy had other characters that were coming in and out of the storyline, and they were fascinating characters. The trick is to not introduce them as love interests. The trick, we feel, is to introduce them as fleshed-out characters with their own inner lives, and then see what develops. And the other thing is, the girls are very separate and very different. And very rarely are they in the same episode, because they’re each serving very different storylines. Ruby (Katie Cassidy) is this demon hunter, who is ruthless and a little crazy and rough around the edges, and doesn’t share the same moral conscience that either of the boys share. A little unhinged in that way. There’s going to be a big twist about Ruby very early on. As early as Episode 2 you’re going to learn something very fascinating about Ruby.
