Dawn To Rebel On Buffy
Michelle Trachtenberg, who plays little sister Dawn on UPN's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, told SCI FI Wire that her character will have to deal with the consequences of her kleptomania in an upcoming episode. "You can expect that Dawn will be getting a little more rebellious," Trachtenberg said in an interview.
Trachtenberg added, "Obviously, she has shown signs of being a kleptomaniac. Oh, that's such a harsh word! A person who steals a little bit often. ... I know that that storyline will reach a certain pinnacle--that Buffy and Dawn will have to deal with [it] in the way that they do. Definitely, in the end of this season and in the seasons to come, Dawn will be getting more rebellious and more mature and more womanly. She's getting older. She'll be 16 soon. She's 15 now and a freshman in high school. So after you get past the freshman year, you're kind of like, 'OK, I'm good, I'm a sophomore, I'm better. I'm living and experiencing things.' So that's definitely in store for her." Buffy airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
