Tasha Yar

With the exception of a premature cancellation, very little earns the ire of the fan boys like the death of a beloved character. In the current TV climate we are used to fans hoping for a character to meet their demise, baying for blood with each passing episode. The likes of Joffrey of Game of Thrones and Andrea of The Walking Dead, have united the fan base in a collective sea of hate, which often seems to take on a life of its own. As all-encompassing as these hate campaigns can be, there is something more powerful- and that is the death of a character that we actually like.

In this day and age killing a character is a sure fire way to unleash message board hell. It’s understandable of course; we watch these characters live their lives for a number of years and become invested in them and their journeys, so to see these journeys come to an end can be devastating. Having said that there are times when you just want to tell the fans to stop and remember that it is just a television show. Every time a show runner like Joss Whedon kills a character off, it seems like the geek apocalypse has begun. The internet lights up and millions of fans discuss their mutual devastation and anger with the events of the show- some vow to boycott the series and others plan to protest- but those of us that aren’t crazy will simply sit and reflect on the loss of a character that mattered to us.

There are times however that the outrage is justified, when a character is exits the show in an incredibly unfitting way. A way in which neither you or any other fan would have predicted nor wanted, it may seem like an exaggeration but it can be an event that genuinely ruins a show for some people.

Let’s check out 10 unnecessary TV deaths that outraged the fan boys.

Amongst other things (like the fact that they were generally just great shows, for example), the Buffyverse television shows – Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – were renowned for their attractive casts.

There were cast members to appeal to all demographics, but there was a particular emphasis on beautiful women; Sarah Michelle Gellar as the titular Buffy Summers, Eliza Dushku as rogue slayer Faith Lehane, Alyson Hannigan as the lesbian witch Willow Rosenberg, Amy Acker as science geek Fred Burkle, Charisma Carpenter as cheerleader turned team Angel member Cordelia Chase and Emma Caulfield as ex-demon Anya Jenkins to name but a few.

But the main cast members weren’t the only attractive females on the show – not by a long shot.

In this article, I’ll be remembering some of the minor supporting characters over the course of the seven seasons of Buffy and five seasons of Angel.

With that in mind, here are twelve forgotten hotties from the Buffyverse (the eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that there aren’t twelve individuals here, there are twelve entries as some of these come as a pair or a trio, which brings the total to seventeen. And on that pedantic note, let’s get started)…

It really is extremely hard to believe that Buffy the Vampire Slayer has now been off our TV screens for a staggering 10 years, while the spin-off series Angel disappeared 9 years ago.

The cast of characters in each show were undoubtedly what made them so memorable. Buffy Summers, Xander Harris, Willow Rosenberg, Spike, Wesley Wyndham-Pryce, Angel, Fred Burkle, Lorne, Rupert Giles, Charles Gunn… great, great characters played by wonderful actors – and of course there were many more regulars that we loved.

However, the minor characters were also unforgettable. But did you realise that some of the biggest names in Hollywood made brief appearances in the Buffyverse?

In this article, I’ll look at six Hollywood stars who had brief appearances in either Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel…
