Rank #20: 0.18: Interview with Charisma Carpenter

Podcast cover
Read more

It is here! It is time! Charisma Carpenter sat down with us to talk about the trope of the mean girl, that infamous spatula scene, the audition she almost didn't make it to, and how Cordelia got to stake her very first vamp! We dig into her time on Buffy and Angel, and also get deep on politics, parenting, religion, and so much more. As the saying goes: Cordelia, we love you, Cordelia, you're perfect, Cordeliaaaaaa.

Be warned, this interview may contain spoilers.


Many thanks to CHARISMA CARPENTER (@AllCharisma) for taking the time to talk to us!
