Emma: (on the show Buffy) I grew up in many ways on that show so it is really what I remember of my life during that time that I take away with me. I have worked with a lot of great crews but that crew was special. Just stand up, funny, talented people. I made some great friends who I still see today and some I have worked with on other projects.
Emma: (on her webshow Bandwagon and why she developed it) I've felt for a long time, that I was quite far way from my end goal. However, I also seek to better myself and grow as an artist and business woman. I want to participate in my own creative empire rather than just be a gun for hire.
Emma: (on the critcally acclaimed Buffy episode The Body) We never really deal with death and that was pretty cool. It's a great episode, it's really different, completely stripped bare. My character was able to go some place which she hadn't really been able to go, which was nice.
Emma: (on her job as a waitress) I remember cocktail waitressing at this local bar here in LA and they had horrible food. Just to show how bad a waitress I was, I started telling people that. When they said, "What would you recommend to eat?" I would just say, "The food here is horrible, you don't want to eat this...but, you know, our melon ball shots are great and our beer on tap is fantastic!
Emma: (on her Buffy character Anya being designed after Jane Espenson) I love Jane and that puts a whole new spin on Anya knowing that. I have such a good time playing her, I can't even tell you. She's so much fun and Jane's great.
Emma: (On the death of her character Anya in Buffy) She didn't get a big, maudlin send-off, it was very quick and to the point - very Anya in that respect.
Emma: I think my worst nightmare is standing up in front of a group of people. This is not much better, because I know they're all looking and it's me. I don't do well when it's just me, but if I can be somebody else that's fun, that's fine.
Emma: Being in charge or something, being a boss or something, having more control, that's appealing to me. I don't have much control as an actor.
Emma: (On something that she should be doing in life) I don't know what that is yet, but it's been plaguing me - like I've missed my calling somehow. I think it probably has something to do with animals, I'm guessing, because I'm very passionate about animals. Some sort of meaningful impact on animal rights probably.
Emma: I'm a ridiculous sci-fi fan. In fact, I admit it freely; my manager is horrified. I just recently bought seasons two through five of Star Trek: The Next Generation on DVD. And I've watched all the episodes, half on the plane and a few of them as I was going to sleep last night. There's something about sci-fi that's comforting.
Emma: I was in London during my first sci-fi convention for Buffy, and I was at the local bar, having a drink, writing in my journal, and this woman came up to me and said, "Do you want a drink?" I said, "No, thank you." She pushed it a couple of times, and each time I said, "No, really I'm fine." Then she turned really cold, looked at me and said, "Someday these conventions will be your only outlet." I was like, wow!
