Anya / Emma Caulfield


 
Anya's Bio
Anya

Anya was, about 1120 years ago, a girl — a girl who'd been dumped and was practicing vengeance spells on men (boils on the penis and other fun stuff). The demon D'Hoffryn got wind of her, and made her a vengeance demon. She carried out her duties for over a thousand years, known as Anyanka, the patron saint of scorned women. She found women who'd been hurt by a man, used a special necklace (her power center) to grant their wishes. Usually, the wishes involved vengeance on the man who'd betrayed them. Anyanka came to Sunnydale to grant a wish for Cordelia after Xander had cheated on her with Willow, but instead of wishing something bad on Xander, Cordelia wished that Buffy Summers had never come to Sunnydale. Anyanka granted the wish, resulting in an alternate reality. Unfortunately for Anyanka, Giles smashed her necklace, bringing Sunnydale back to its normal reality, and leaving Anya stuck in the mortal body of a teenager. D'Hoffryn refused to give her her powers back, and her attempt to use Willow to help her get her necklace back backfired, so Anya continued attending Sunnydale High School. She developed a crush on Xander, and the two became a (highly sexually active) couple, eventually getting engaged. Unfortunately, Xander wasn't ready to get married, due in large part to a fear of becoming like his dad, and he called it off on the day of the wedding. A heartbroken Anya then slept with Spike, which Xander saw due to a hidden camera planted in the Magic Box (where Anya worked) by Warren, Jonathan, and Andrew. D'Hoffryn offered Anya her powers back, and she accepted, becoming a vengeance demon again, though her heart isn't in it.

Emma's Bio
Emma

Emma Caulfield, 44, is relatively new to the Hollywood scene. You might recognize her from her stint on Beverly Hills, 90210 as Brandon's girlfriend Susan, or even from her small role on General Hospital as nurse Lorraine. After those roles, Emma had put acting on the backburner to focus on college, receiving a degree in Psychology, but Buffy beckoned. She much prefers playing Anya the mortal, because she hates having to get into the demon makeup. Emma is a fan of Liddy Dole and Bono (of U2). Though she loves her current job, she's not so sure that she wants to be acting 15 years from now, noting that the business is masochistic, and that an actor can never have true peace.
