Anthony Stewart Head interview!
Thursday, November 02, 2006 6:10 AM
Quote:Anthony Head is probably best known to forteans for his long-running role of Rupert Giles in Joss Whedon’s cult series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. He has also appeared in Doctor Who and fronted True Horror, a series looking at the facts behind a number of supernatural mysteries, and his latest departure is his debut in the irreverent, alien-themed game sequel Destroy All Humans 2, in which he plays Ponsonby, a 1960s MI5 Cold Warrior forced to deal with extraterrestrials as well as the KGB.
Quote:NC: I’m going to inevitably ask you one question about Buffy! Is there any kind of news at all about the proposed spin-off series Ripper?
AH: Well, there is truth to the rumour that there was going to be a series; whether there will be one I don’t know. Time moves on apace. I don’t know whether people will still be interested. The idea that Joss Whedon had: it was absolutely wonderful, a beautiful story. And my suggestion to him that sometime that we might do it independently of Buffy – if it’s too late to attach it to Buffy – then I would say it would be lovely to shoot it as a little independent work because it is a fabulous little ghost story. At the moment, he is tied up with making movies, which works for me. I thought Serenity was a beautiful film. He is still involved in writing some of the prep for Wonder Woman. I don’t know when that will be made. And somewhere down the line, if he has time and he asked me, I’d do it [Ripper] like a shot.
