The Results Are In: Recast Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Every other Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. The reader who submits the best cast wins a BuzzSugar t-shirt!

Your passion for Buffy the Vampire Slayer certainly came out in this recast — one of the biggest ever! I'm seriously impressed with the time so many of you put into your recasts, choosing actors to play numerous other characters and painstakingly explaining your picks.

Buffy herself seemed to be the toughest choice, though there were several common picks to play her, most notably Hayden Panettiere and Kristen Bell. Amber Tamblyn was another interesting choice, and I got a kick out of supertramp's explanation for her choice of Evan Rachael Wood: "If she can deal with Mr. Manson, she can handle vampires." Many of you leaned toward Tina Majorino to play Willow, and Ellen Page was another common pick for that role. As for Spike, I was particularly intrigued by caseystrip and alynn's choice of Cillian Murphy.

But my favorite overall recast came from Adrenalynn75! To see wh Adrenalynn75 chose, along with some new cast photos, just read more.
