Emma Caulfield, Juliet Landau, and Elizabeth Anne Allen in Santa Barbara

[Originally published on a now defunct web magazine in 2002]

On Saturday, November 16, 2002 I went to another autograph event at Metro Entertainment in Santa Barbara to see Emma Caulfield (Anya), Juliet Landau (Drusilla), and Elizabeth Anne Allen (Amy).

First, the big news! I asked Juliet Landau if she would be doing Buffy again, and she confirmed that she was; in fact, she had been filming a Buffy episode until 5:30 that very morning. She's going to be doing another Buffy episode "further on", but probably won't be doing any Angel episodes this season. She said with a smile that doing Buffy was "great fun." (I believed her, although I can't imagine any kind of work being fun at 5:30 in the morning!)

Emma Caulfield has mentioned in interviews that she wants to work with animals, so I asked her if she had something specific in mind. She said, "Ideally, at some point I want to have a working wildlife preserve. Someday! Got to keep working, they don't come cheap." Emma recently finished filming a movie called Darkness Falls; she told us that the first cast screening was four days ago. (Darkness Falls opens on January 24.)

I asked Elizabeth Anne Allen if she actually liked rodents or if they creeped her out. She replied, "They don't! I actually met mine." She said that the rat's name was Michael, he was very cute, and that they had let her hold him and play with him. Elizabeth also told us that she had just finished filming a movie with the Saturday Night Live crew. I didn't get a chance to ask her if she would be doing Buffy this year; sorry!

Excuse me a moment while I gush about the gracious Juliet Landau. I have a Spike and Dru 8x10 photo that James Marsters signed for me in 1999 at Shore Leave in Baltimore. I told him that I'd named my cute and obnoxious kitten after his character, and he laughed and wrote "Spike" under his signature. Juliet noticed how James had signed the photo, and even though the event was a crush and I didn't ask for anything special, she wrote "Drusilla" under her signature so that it would go with James', which was just incredibly nice of her. Then, after I got my autographs, I was allowed to take photos for my article here at N:Zone (photos aren't usually allowed at Metro signings) and Juliet looked up and smiled right into the camera for me. What a lovely woman.

Definitely worth the trip to Santa Barbara.
