Born February 20, 1954
Anthony Head or Anthony Stewart Head as he was known in pre-Buffy syndication times. He was freaking Giles. One of the best characters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He was the mentor to that whole group and was the pivot of the plot on a lot of episodes.
- Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Giles the Watcher. Perfectly cast. No one else could have done this role.
- BTVS – Episode: The Gift – Click here to watch the scene – This is my all time favorite Giles scene in the entire show. He has been training Buffy to kill Vampires and Demons for years. He explains to Ben/Glory that she can’t kill him because he is human – because Buffy is not like “us.” The “us” he is talking about is he and Ben/Glory. Giles then puts his hand over Ben’s nose and mouth and suffocates him. Damn…
- Little Britain – Head plays the Prime Minister. Hilarity ensues. I love Little Britain and Tony Head playing the straight guy to the rest of the cast as the PM is perfect casting.
We all sing about the things we’re thinking; musicals are about expressing those emotions that you can’t talk about. It works a real treat.
