Dawn, Willow Talk Buffy
Michelle Trachtenberg, who plays younger sister Dawn on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, hinted to SCI FI Wire that her character may get a love interest in the upcoming sixth season, which marks the show's move to UPN. "Dawn will be doing regular teen-age things," Trachtenberg said in an interview. "Actually, the first one that I don't know that I'm allowed to say this, but Dawn might be getting some interests in the crush field."
But Trachtenberg was vague about details and declined to answer a question about what kind of training she's getting for the show. "I can't tell you that," she said. "I have no comment. I cannot confirm or deny anything. We just started shooting last week. A lot of stuff is happening, a lot of fun stuff. You can expect it to be in typical Buffy fashion. We start out, of course, [and] a couple months have passed since the season finale, and it's just jumping right into the regular Sunnydale fun stuff."
Meanwhile, Alyson Hannigan, who plays best pal Willow, told SCI FI Wire that she's already overwhelmed by the new season's work. "We've only been working for a week and a half, and so far, it's been a bitch," Hannigan said in an interview. "I've had to do some stuff that I just really had trouble with." She wouldn't say whether that was physical or emotional stuff, nor did she know what her specific character arc would be this year. "I don't actually, honestly," Hannigan said. "They know, but I have not had time to sit down and figure [it out]. I mean, I have an idea just because people are saying things." Buffy makes its season premiere with a two-hour episode at 8 p.m. Oct. 2.
