April 1998 Fun Facts

From April 3

Before the Charisma Carpenter Chat on AOL yesterday, I sent in a question. I'm assuming the following was my question, since I sent it early and it was worded similar to mine:

Question: What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?

EAMC Guest: Considering that my character is so mean I guess I should say I have a heart and I love my dogs and I'm a nice person!

From April 10

Nicholas Brendon was on E! Online chatting on April 6. I was not able to attend, but I did read the transcript. I decided to share some of the questions and answers from that event here.

Question: Nicholas, do you know how hot you are?
Answer: Well, about 98.7, I think, but I'm running a bit of a fever right now, so I'm 99.

Question: If you could write a storyline for Xander, what would it be?
Answer: I would probably be the dictator of Cuba and smoke cigars, because that's power, baby. Xander needs more power.

Question: Do you have any pets?
Answer: Yes. I have a dog named Zoey that I rescued from Hollywood High, where kids were feeding him gum.

Question: What is it like to work with Sarah Michelle Gellar?
Answer: I have never met a more professional person in my life.

Question: What is the schedule for filming a Buffy episode, from when you first get a script to rehearsal time and filming?
Answer: Eight-day shoots. We get the script right after we finish the one we're currently on. So, there's no rehearsal time. This isn't a high school play, people. This is the big time.

Question: Who are you close with on the set?
Answer: My two best friends are Tony and David --Giles and Angel.

Question: What was your most embarrassing moment ever?
Answer: Being born is weird. You're covered in blood. They spank you. It's a weird way to see your mom for the first time. It was so traumatic and embarrassing I have to confer with my counselor once this is done.

Question: What is it like working with Alyson Hannigon (Willow)?
Answer: She's lovely. We all work very hard and very long hours. Sometimes you have a tiff here or there, but all in all, we're good friends.

Question: When fans write to you, do you always respond? If so, or when you do, is it REALLY you?
Answer: Well, yes, it is. And I do read everything.

Question: What is your favorite episode of Buffy?
Answer: Probably, "The Pack" or "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered."

Question: It seemed you enjoyed the water-hose scene in the episode "What's My Line, Part 2" a little too much. Did the director have to yell cut?
Answer: No, that was my choice to enjoy it all.
