While Amber Benson has some very impressive film credits under her belt – making her debut in Stephen Soderberg’s “King Of The Hill”, and moving on to appear in “The Prime Gig” alongside Ed Harris, the notorious “lost film” “Don’s Plum” with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, and most recently, completing Taboo with Nick Stahl – she is best known for her role as the dear-departed Tara on the newly-departed TV show, “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.” Tara, of course, was a groundbreaking role, particularly for U.S. television, as one-half of an on-going lesbian love affair (with Alyson Hannigan’s Willow character completing the couple).
In 2001, Benson completed production on her directorial debut, the coming-of-age dark comedy, Chance, which co-stars a few of her ““Buffy”” and “Angel” castmates. The movie screened recently at the Moonlight Rising convention in the Catskills and received rave reviews from fans (a.k.a. “Amberholics”).
