Question: We are big fans of Joan of Arcadia and have noticed the actor who plays Adam in reruns of other shows (7th Heaven being one). Did he play a child called "the Anointed One" in Seasons 1 and 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

Televisionary: Nope. The actor who plays Adam on Joan is Christopher Marquette, and you can read a little more about him near the bottom of this column.

"The Anointed One" was played by Andrew J. Ferchland in several 1997 episodes of Buffy (until he was torched by Spike, that is). You may also have spotted him doing guest work on such shows as Judging Amy, Promised Land, Chicago Hope and ER.
