Amber Benson may be best known as Tara (the lesbian witch) on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But she has been acting professionally for over 20 years and has racked up quite the resume. As well as being a writer (screenplays, novels, comics), a director of films, a dancer, a singer. We talk about growing up in Birminham, Alabama by 2 therapists as parents, how their divorce was probably for the best, how impactful her character from Buffy was on others and how the death of the character maybe wasnt the best idea, we talk about Joss Whedon, Tobey Maguire, James Marsters, Brian Dennehy, Steven Soderbergh, Alicia Silverstone, Cary Elwes, shooting Stephen Dorff, getting shot on Buffy by her future boyfriend/ex-boyfriend, seeing a ghost... maybe, religion, knowing the Backstreet Boys, her mom selling her stuff on eBay and how her mom socializes with Buffy fans, her dads preference for Latina women, Tori Spelling and a ton more things!!!
Please listen, share and enjoy!!
