Faith wasn’t invited to the Buffy reunion

By Ross Semple

Buffy the Vampire Slayer 

star Eliza Dushku has revealed that she wasn’t asked to be a part of the highly-publicised Buffy reunion photoshoot.

The cast of the show came together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Buffy’s premiere for Entertainment Weekly and People magazine.

Responding to a fan’s question about her absence from the shoot, Dushku tweeted: “I was never a series regular cast member on btvs, sweeties=no invite. ”

Eliza played Faith on the show during the third season, and later returned in seasons 4 & 7. She remains a fan-favourite, and has appeared in the official comic continuation of the series.

She also worked with Buffy creator Joss Whedon on the short-lived sci-fi series Dollhouse, in which she played a woman who could be imprinted with any personality after having her mind wiped by an evil corporation.

Another notable absence from the reunion was Anthony Stewart Head, who played Buffy’s Watcher Giles on the show.

Anthony explained on Twitter that he’s currently starring in a play in London so he couldn’t make it, but he did make an appearance with an on-set portrait.

The reunion was the first time the entire cast had been together for over a decade, and gave them a chance to look back at the show that made them household names.
