Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • DB Woodside (on his favorite moments working on Buffy the Vampire Slayer): There were several moments. It would have to have been episode seventeen and the big face off between Wood and Spike. Those fight scenes are so intense and that one took us between two and three days to shoot - twelve to fifteen hour days.

    • DB Woodside (on his first Buffy the Vampire Slayer convention): It was absolutely brilliant. I'm so happy they chose me to come over. It was only their second convention and what I liked about it is that it was small.

    • DB Woodside (on the end of Buffy the Vampire Slayer): It was sad to see these guys who had been together for seven years of their lives, who had grown up together. They were a family, and like many families they work hard and love hard.
      They were fantastic and welcomed me into that family for the final season. So there were quite a few tears, quite a few hugs, but they felt they had to move on.

    • DB Woodside (on doing his own stunts): When you're a guy it's play, you really want to do as much as you can, not because you're trying to be courageous or show off, it's because it's fun and it's part of the job you live for.

    • DB Woodside (on doing a fight scene on Buffy the Vampire Slayer): James Marsters does a lot of his own stunts, so that one fight scene that James and I had was a lot of fun. They really let me do a lot of my own stunts.

    • DB Woodside (on playing the role of a principal on Buffy the Vampire Slayer): I was a little bit of a troublemaker in high school. I would find it very difficult to take my role seriously and trying to discipline kids for doing relatively the same stuff I was doing at that age. I'd be a horrible principal.

    • DB Woodside (on his interest to reprise the role of 'Principal Wood' in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie): I'd be very interested in the Buffy movies. I think there is so much more that can be accomplished given that format. To play that character again in a movie I just think would be fantastic.

    • DB Woodside (on the seventh season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar): I think there was a cloud hanging over the seventh season, especially in the beginning. I don't think anyone was sure what Sarah was going to do, but I think she decided that seven years was enough.
      She'd just got married and I think she wants to have children relatively young. She wanted to spend time with her husband and explore other opportunities, primarily in film.

    • DB Woodside (on getting his role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer): I'd never actually watched the show. The summer before the seventh season I got a call from my manager – I guess [the producers] had seen some of my work – and they wanted me to come in and screen for this character. I said 'no', a week passed and they asked me again - and I said 'no' again.
      Finally, thankfully, my manager twisted my arm and forced me to go in. Shortly afterwards I fell in love with the role and the rest is history. I'm so glad my manager pushed me.

    • DB Woodside: I think it's an actor thing. I don't think it's difficult to break into Hollywood. The difficulty comes when you're trying to have staying power and you have a career - and you're trying to maintain the career you want to have.

    • DB Woodside (on how he got into acting): It's actually an interesting story. I was a football player and I hurt myself in my last year of high school and had to sit out of football for three weeks. I found it too depressing so I began wandering the halls of high school and ventured down into a wing that I'd never really gone down before because I heard music.
      I happened on a dress-rehearsal for Brigadoon and sat down and lost myself in that world. I don't do musicals but there was something fascinating about exposing myself to an art that I'd never really been involved with.

    I selected "Should Have Been A Bigger Star" only because it wasnt D.B. Woodsides fault that the writing of the entire season didnt pull through like it had done for his brother David Palmer in the previous season. Instead of the writing getting better as the seaosn began to devolop, it stayed pretty bad throughout the entire season and it comes off as D.B. Woodside being the main reason for that. His acting was not the bad part, it was simply the writing.



    Either way - he had a very powerful role and he simply wasnt able to pull together and look like a man that should be leading our country. He came off as weak and pathetic in some episodes, which is not what you want from the man who is representing your country on television. He did a good job, but the president role was a little too much for him. Hes a supporter, not a leader.moreless
