Joss Whedon spoke to TV Guide about the life after Buffy, and they asked him about Eliza and the proposed Faith spinoff: TVGO: Let's talk about Eliza Dushku. Why was it so important to bring back rogue slayer Faith - and not just on Buffy, but on Angel, too? Whedon: She had finished out as a character on Angel, and she'd talked, not knowing about the last season of Buffy, about doing Angel again, because she had fun. And I booked her for both, thinking she left us on Angel, so she should come back there and have some closure with that crew, then go back to Buffy for the end of the last season. And, because it is the last season, Faith should be a part of that. She's so much part of the history. TVGO: The prospect of a Faith spinoff was awfully tantalizing. What happened there? Whedon: Eliza's doing something else [the Fox pilot Heroine]. There was some talk of [a Faith spinoff], but she chose something else, and the talk stopped. TVGO: And you wouldn't just recast Faith? Whedon: I would never have a different actress playing any of the characters I've established. I could create shows around different characters, with different permutations and structures for the characters, but it would require coming up with a new show. It wouldn't just be, you know, like, more of the same with some of the same people. It would have to be the way Angel is not Buffy - it would have to be neither of them [but rather, something unique]. And I don't know what that show is or would be or could be because my brain is very sleepy. But I certainly don't rule that out.
