"Excuse me, I have to call everyone I have ever met. Right now."
This iconic line from Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Cordelia Chase basically sums up our reaction when news broke that the CW's Supernatural would be staging a mini Buffy reunion, with James Marsters (Spike!) and Charisma Carpenter (Cordy!) guest starring as a wicked married couple going through a hostile divorce. (Buffy and Angel must be so jealous, by the way).
Any other Whedonverse alums Carpenter keeps in touch with?
"Last year I went trick-or-treating at Aly's [Hannigan] house and we were together on Veronica Mars. I love seeing Nicky [Brendon], and Julie Benz and I are really close. I'll be in her wedding."
As for her character on Supernatural, Maggie, Carpenter describes her as "a very powerful witch with a bad temper" and says "she was an absolute doll and a lot of fun to play."
Of course we had to ask Carpenter what it was like working with Ackles and Padalecki, whom she calls "great."
"They are both from Texas...I guess they don't really have their accents anymore, but they are really laid-back and down-home and normal," Carpenter says. "Seven years on the same show, you don't always get that, so it was really nice for me."
The Buffy alums' appearance on Supernatural bridges together two of the biggest (and loudest) fan bases in TV history, and Carpenter says the response has been huge.
"It's been really enormous. It has been so positive," Carpenter gushes. "The fans are kind of the same, very die-hard, radical, fanatical and happy, not in a bad way, but just hellbent and true."
Are you excited to see the Buffy alums on Supernatural? Are you hoping Carpenter and Marsters return for more episodes in the future? Sound off in the comments!
