  Amber Benson
Amber Benson Chat
Tara talks live on Cult

Question from Natalie Dokarry: What's the best thing about being on Buffy?

Amber Benson: Working with such cool people. Joss Whedon is a god.

Question from Shufflebum Munky: What's the strangest thing you've received from a fan?

Amber Benson: I have a lovely picture sitting in a trailer at work from a young man who quoted some scripture and told me he loved me eternally and gave me all his contact details... and it's framed!

Question from Sam Salsbury: how do you see the future of buffy, with it shifting (maybe) from the wb and possibly onto UPN. Do you think it could survive?

Amber Benson: I hope so. I think Buffy is a wonderful show and deserves to go on for at least ten seasons.

Question from Pat Bates: How did you feel when you were offered the part in the series? Were you aware of the intentions of the scriptwriters when you accepted?

Amber Benson: I had no idea that Tara and Willow were going to be lovers but I'm really really glad that I was given the opportunity to play her.

Question from John Forster: Did you have fun making this episode (Yoko Factor) as it is the funniest I have seen.

Amber Benson: It's really cute. I like that episode a lot.

Question from Steve Kool: Amber, how would you recommend getting into the acting business?

Amber Benson: Gosh. I would say if you think you could survive without being an actor - don't do it. It's a horrible, painful, wonderful but miserable business.
