Kristy Swanson Wants to Play in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Reboot

Kristy Swanson

Despite the disapproval of its creator Joss Whedon, the original actress of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' movie said she would love to appear in the reboot.

Original "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Kristy Swanson wants a bite of the franchise's next revamp - despite creator Joss Whedon publicly denouncing the project as "a sad, sad reflection on our times". The actress is best known for playing Buffy Summers in Whedon's 1992 film which spawned the hit TV franchise, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar in the title role.

Whedon has blasted plans for a new big screen installment, criticizing studio bosses for failing to come up with fresh ideas. But Swanson insists she would love to appear in the reboot, which she believes can survive without Whedon.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "Let Buffy live; why not? If they wanted me to be a part of it, I think that would be fantastic and that it would be a blast. There are die-hard Joss Whedon fans who absolutely love him to death, and rightly so. He's a brilliant man, no doubt. I love everything Buffy. I don't care who's doing it."

    I do not believe it's a good idea either. A whole new cast wouln't attract the former fans of the series. Plus, bringing "new ideas" to this classics is just not right!

    Good god no! The idea of the film without the original cast is bad enough, but the thought of her in it is appalling, I thought she'd retired anyway.
