Buffy Villain Stops Her Bitching


After nearly two years of recurring status as Anya, Buffy the Vampire Slayer's man-hating demon, Emma Caulfield has finally been promoted to a series regular. So what the Hellmouth took so long? "I really couldn't get into the head of [series creator] Joss Whedon," Caulfield tells TV Guide Online. Her mug will be added to the opening credits this fall, though. "I started with what was supposed to be one episode, and it kept evolving."

In Caulfield's December 1998 Buffy debut, her character ? the 1,120-year-old patron saint of scorned women ? twitched her nose and created an alternate universe in which Buffy never came to Sunnydale. And although a kinder, gentler ? i.e., human ? Anya has emerged, she's thankfully retained her trademark acid tongue. "There are times," she admits, "when I thought, 'God, I wish I could say that!' "
