Charisma Carpenter talks Buffy, Butterfinger Defense League and Expendables – PopWrap
For seven years Charisma Carpenter was a crucial cog in the epic fight against vampires, demons and the forces of evil on “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.” Now she’s taking the ass-kicking skills absorbed during her time as Cordelia to chase away a new, potentially more dangerous foe: candy thieves.
Yes, the war against those who seek to lay a finger on your Butterfinger just got three new allies, as Lou “Hulk” Ferrigno, Erik Estrada and Charisma founded The Butterfinger Defense League.
And while everyone waits with baited (chocolate-laced) breath for her debut Defense video, PopWrap chatted with Charisma about a couple other hot topics. Notably her time in the Scooby-Gang, a possible reunion with Joss Whedon and making out with Jason Statham.
Just a reminder that Charisma will be appearing at I-Con 29 this weekend. A quick rundown of her schedule is posted below. Visit the official site for more detailed information.

According to Ausiello at EW.com, there’s a possiblity Charisma may be reprising her role as Tegan Walker in the upcoming fourth, and possibly final, season of Greek.
Question: Please could you serve up a tasty helping of Greek scoop? —Kelly R.
Ausiello: The show’s just-announced, 10-episode fourth season — slated to debut later this summer — will most likely be its last. “That is the plan,” confirms series creator Sean Smith, who hopes to lure back some old faves like Charisma Carpenter and Michael Rady for the final stretch. “We’re all looking at this as an opportunity to come back, wrap up the show, and end strong. ABC Family could’ve ended it, but they gave us this opportunity and I don’t want to squander it.” Meanwhile, an ABC Family spokesperson insists buzz that Dilshad Vadsaria (Rebecca) is leaving the show (perhaps to star in a new pilot) is not true. The rep says all of Greek’s regulars will be back for season 4.
Charisma has been confirmed as a guest for I-Con 29 which will take place March 26-28 at Stony Brook University in New York. Visit the official site for more information and to book tickets.

EXCLUSIVE: Interview With The Gorgeous CHARISMA CARPENTER
At this past Dallas Comic Con (Jan. 30, 2010), I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes with the gorgeous actress, Charisma Carpenter. Carpenter is most known for her role as Cordelia Chase in Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel”. She has guest starred on other television series, including “Veronica Mars”, “Charmed”, and most recently “Legend of the Seeker”. Carpenter’s next film is action-star packed, “The Expendables” with Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, and more. She plays Lacy, the girlfriend of Jason Statham’s character. Here’s the transcription of our conversation.
