Shooting 'Hush' with the Gentleman - and going and sitting at lunch with them and being kinda freaked out by the juxtaposition of their creepy/amazing make-up with how sweet they were as people.
Amber Benson has been up to a lot lately - writing books, acting, and directing - but when we sat down with her, we couldn’t help but ask about the first thing that endeared her to us: her part in the sweetest and most tragic relationship on The Tara-Willow relationship, especially the way that the two characters eventually got together was one of the greatest pieces of television, especially LGBTQ television. Unlike other TV shows, Willow’s coming out was not publicised. What struck me about that moment was that it was really filmed for people who loved the story. Literally, I remember Alyson and I being like, “Spike and Buffy are shtupping on a gravestone, seeing everything… He had to manipulate the system just to get the little bit of what we had and it really was a struggle.
Quite the opposite: you guys had us believing that Tara was loving in vain and that Willow had no idea what was going on. It was not filmed for male consumption; it wasn’t two hot chicks making out. And I really loved the way the you guys worked oral sex into what really going on.
The exact question Benson was asked over at Reddit during the AMA was, "What did you enjoy the most or what was most rewarding about playing the character of Tara?Clare Kramer as Glory - because she was so frickin' well-dressed and a total balls to the wall bad ass.I was totally scared of her when she was all Glory-ed out..she's like one of the loveliest human beings ever in real life.Contentious material about living persons that is unsourced or poorly sourced must be removed immediately, especially if potentially libelous or harmful.Amber Nicole Benson (born January 8, 1977) is an American actress, writer, director, and producer.
