  • Quotes

    • (On what Elizabeth would do had she not gone into acting)
      Elizabeth: I work with a charity right now, and I really enjoy that. I really enjoy putting together functions and raising money for children. That's phenomenal, that's been a lot of fun, I think I would really love to do that.

    • Elizabeth: I love being in front of the camera. I give directors credit - there's so much to take into consideration, it's really intimidating to me. I don't think I'd want to direct, but I love writing and I love acting.

    • (On the Buffy the Vampire Episode 'Gingerbread')
      Elizabeth: It was kind of funny, because the day that they put me on the pyre was my birthday. So they said I was a human candle, and when they lit the candle everybody sang 'Happy Birthday' to me.

    • Elizabeth: It's always more fun to play a bad person. Those characters are always so much more layered.

    • (On her future plans after leaving Buffy)
      Elizabeth: Professionally, just to keep on doing my thing. I love acting. As for my personal life, I intend to savour and appreciate all those wonderful beings that I am choosing to share my life with and perhaps travel a bit more.

    • (On her feelings about meeting fans.)
      Elizabeth: I love it. I find that a lot of people have great ideas, and I wish that some of them could have been incorporated. It's fun, and I like to know the amount of people that it's touched and the facets of the character - it's touched them in different ways.

    • (On whether her husband is a follower of Buffy.)
      Elizabeth: He actually never really followed the show. He came to the convention and he had no idea who anybody was. It just tickled me, it was very funny.

  • A talented actress who isn't recognised enough.

    8.0
    Elizabeth Anne Allen for me is only known from her performance as Amy Madison on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her role on Buffy wasn't a big one she only appeared in a few episodes over the seven series but I think that the episodes she appeared in were pivital. In the final season Elizabeth played a part in a very important episode. For everything that I have seen her in she is a very talented actress who isn't given enough credit for what she does. I also have to admire her for the charity work that she does in her spare time.moreless
