Last night I went back to the Fontainebleau Miami Beach to work the press line at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which, btw, was spectacular.
Out on the pink carpet I interviewed Michelle Trachtenberg, a.k.a. Dawn on TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Here’s what she had to say when I asked her if there was any truth to the rumor of a possible BtVS movie.
“Oh, no, I don’t think so,” Trachtenberg said. “I’ve not heard that before. I think that would require everyone signing back up and I don’t think that they, that the powers that be have those powers.”
It makes sense: the show’s creator, Joss Whedon, is busy with the upcoming Dollhouse on Fox, which stars Eliza Dushku, a.k.a. rogue slayer Faith; its star, Sarah Michelle Gellar, is busy developing The Wonderful Maladys for HBO; and Alyson Hannigan, a.k.a. Willow, is pregnant and making audiences laugh over at TV’s How I Met Your Mother.
But, I had to press, would Trachtenberg up for the movie?
“Mmm, you know, Buffy was an amazing experience, but it was three years of my life when I was younger, and I think I did [Dawn] justice. I think now I’m looking for different things.”
Well, speaking of just that, would she reprise her role as Georgina on TV’s Gossip Girl?
“I don’t know. If they think of a fantastic way to bring Georgina back I may just say yes.”
Going back to the Whedonverse, I asked if she was looking forward to Dollhouse, which caught Trachtenberg by surprise.
“Dollhouse?” she asked.
“Yeah, the new Joss Whedon show,” I said.
“Oh, I didn’t know about it.”
“Will you watch it so it doesn’t get cancelled [given its crappy timeslot]?”
“Don’t say that from the beginning! That’s bad show karma. I’ll definitely check it out.”
Well, good – we got one more viewer in the bag.
Update 1: John Stamos also walked the pink carpet on Saturday night. If you just need to know what he said when I asked him if he was happy for his ex-wife Rebecca Romijn, who’s expecting twins this winter, then click here.
Update 2: In case you were wondering, Brody Jenner also made it to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and he spilled the beans on Lauren Conrad’s new boyfriend, Kyle Howard (TBS’ My Boys).
