Glenn Frey, of Eagles, was opposite me, and when we were filming, he said, "Can we please stop? That was really embarrassing, and I don't mind sharing.It’s just been such a profound thing for people who were going through the same thing or just terrified of what they were going to have to go through and just to see somebody that they had been watching for so many years to get to not feel so alone, it’s like it’s such a gift to be able to be part of that.”There definitely hadn’t been a gay character that had been on a show from the beginning [before Buffy].This was a character that you got to see the journey, that was very groundbreaking.The series concluded in 2003 with the feminist masterstroke of finally allowing Buffy to decide if she WANTED to be the Slayer, and saw the hero and her surviving chums leaving the town of Sunnydale as rubble.But what was the true destiny of The Slayer and her Slayerettes?That was an important thing for people to see, but really I wasn’t thinking about that!
