Buffy, Angel Stars James Marsters, J. August Richards Post Support
More members of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel family came out in support of Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia), who went public earlier this week with accusations against Joss Whedon that involve years of unprofessional and abusive behavior. Previously, Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn Summers), Amber Benson (Tara Maclay), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Anthony Head (Rupert Giles), and Eliza Dushku (Faith) had posted their support (with Trachtenberg revising her initial post to include a claim that at one point a rule was put in-place that Whedon couldn’t meet with her alone). Now, Angel and Buffy stars James Marsters (Spike) and J. August Richards (Charles Gunn) are also taking to social media to proclaim their support of Carpenter.

Clare Kramer added her support as well (full disclosure: she does a lot of work for Roddenberry these days), with the added note that it’s not just Whedon, it’s the Hollywood system as a whole that’s primed for this sort of thing.
The hints Michelle Trachtenberg has dropped give me the screaming heebie-jeebies. She was a freakin’ kid when she was on that show.

And add David Boreanaz to the list.
Is there anyone we haven’t heard from? Where’s Xander?
(checks to see what Nicholas Brendon’s been up to, because I honestly don’t know)
Okay…um…I don’t expect to hear from Nicholas Brendon. But if he was already dealing with depression and substance abuse problems, then the picture that’s being painted of the working environment behind the scenes of Buffy… can’t possibly have been healthy for him either.
Jesus, Joss. WTAF?

‘Buffy’ alum Nicholas Brendon explains silence on Joss Whedon claims
Former “Buffy” star Nicholas Brendon is defending his right to not comment on the allegations of abuse against director Joss Whedon as he battles health issues.
The 49-year-old, who played Xander Harris on the ’90s-2000s WB series, shared this week that he was hospitalized after a visit to the emergency room because of nerve damage in his spine.

Okay, first off…the guy who played Xander is not allowed to be only one year older than me. That’s just not possible. The laws of the universe have been violated.
Second off, I’ll give him a pass on this one and hope he recovers.

Then, this won’t help. From CinemaBlend:
Why Alyson Hannigan Hasn’t Shown Her Kids Buffy The Vampire Slayer Yet
Alyson Hannigan’s Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains an iconic character within action and supernatural storylines almost 20 years after the series’ finale. ‘90s and early ‘00s kids and teens had the WB show at a time when TV was beginning to explore kick-ass girl power in new ways. Nowadays, Hannigan is raising two daughters of her own with her Buffy co-star and husband Alexis Denisof and plays the mother in Disney+’s latest movie, Flora and Ulysses.
