12 years after Buffy The Vampire Slayer ended, the Scooby Gang are back together – but missing a few key members.
Charisma Carpenter, who played Cordelia Chase for three years before moving over to the spin-off show Angel, was in Paris on the weekend for a fan convention and was joined by Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris) and James Marsters (Spike).
Brendon, now 40, has fought a very public battle with alcohol and sleeping pill addiction.
This sad state of affairs culminated with his tasering and arrest for battery of a police officer in 2010. Anthony Stewart Head as Rupert Giles: As long as TV and films need silver British villains, Head (58) will be able to find work.

Head: I remember the first time when we were doing the first half-hour presentation — because they wouldn't give us enough money to do a full pilot!() It was a midseason pickup and nobody thought it was anything."The most formidable years of my life grads: stars James Marsters (Spike), Nicholas Brendon (Xander), Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn), Anthony Head (Giles), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Danny Strong (Jonathan), Amber Benson (Tara), Kristine Sutherland (Joyce) and Eliza Dushku (Faith) as well as exec producer Gail Berman and writer-directors David Greenwalt and David Fury. Berman: I don't think anybody knew what this would turn into. Sometimes you just had to put two horns on a guy's head and say, "He's the monster!Below, the stars and writers open up about the lessons they learned from the series, why it is still so beloved, how it altered the television landscape and crazy fan interactions and why there shouldn't be a reboot. " Fury: We very much felt like we were kids making our show.
