Anthony Stewart Head Interview
Our favourite Librarian tells all


Anthony Stewart Head - Click for more pictures What do you enjoy most about your character’s personality?
Daniel from Hereford

There is a warmth and generosity about Giles. If I met him in person I think that is what I would be attracted to. In terms of what I enjoy about playing him – the social ineptitude, and the intellect is great fun too as I don’t have one!

What is your favourite episode of Buffy?
Jenny Taylor from Norwich

I have to say Passion. Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy) accused me of saying that because I largely featured in it, but it was because it was a beautifully shot episode and a beautifully written one, but they are all great.

What is Sarah Michelle Gellar really like? And what is it like working with her?
Hannah Stanley from Staines

She is remarkably talented, her head is screwed on and she is very generous. There are very few actors who give the amount of emotion that she gives on camera. If there is an emotional scene between us, she will say "Would you like me to give it all" and I say "yes" – and she gives it all! This is very rare and she is extremely generous – there is a great mutual respect between us which I enjoy.
