Charisma: (on playing Kendall Casablancas on Veronica Mars) The name is really spectacular. My manager was like, "It's the best name in prime time." I just laughed at him.
Charisma: My mom owned a retail store, so I had these hot satin pants. I was like Satan at my all-Christian school.
Charisma: (about Sarah Michelle Gellar winning the role of Buffy) Initially I was disappointed, but while I didn't see it at the time, I know now I'm better suited to Cordelia. Moving from Buffy to Angel was great for me. On Buffy I wasn't all that high on the totem pole as far as responsibility and screen time. That all changed when I joined David [Boreanaz] in Angel. The whole thing has been such a buzz.
Charisma: I had my heart set on becoming an English teacher, but stumbled into acting after meeting a theatrical agent in my dad's restaurant in San Diego.
Charisma: I'm not trying to play the heroine chick anymore. I grew out of that. Now it's just about having fun.
Charisma: (On posing for Playboy) I wanted to get back to my old self. I wanted to feel desirable and sexy. So I thought, 'What if I went full throttle?'
Charisma: You can take the girl out of Vegas, but you can't take Vegas out of the girl.
Charisma: (Charisma on picking her roles.) Lots of doors have opened for me because of Buffy and Angel, but, although I'm ambitious, I'm not going to just do anything simply because the money is good. If I can't love a project, then I'm not interested.
Charisma: (Charisma on what she would like to do now that the fast pace lifestyle of being on an hour long drama is no longer part of her life.) I have a son now, so I want the half-hour sitcom lifestyle, where you can have a family and work. And then, during summer hiatus, I'd like to do a Kill Bill or Wonder Woman, or some movie like that.
Charisma: (Charisma on why she is hesitant about taking roles that are similar to her Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel character, Cordelia Chase.) I was a little turned off by the idea of doing another *****. But my agent put it to me quite frankly. That you have to be known before you can be typecast.
Charisma: (Charisma on life) I think essentially, the meaning of life is probably the journey and not really any one thing or an outcome or a result. I think it's kinda the process and I think that if you can find happiness in the process then maybe that's it.
