Joss whedon eliza dushku dating

Whedon has a rep for mentoring young unknowns dating back to his days on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when he first cast Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku, as well as virtual unknown Sarah Michelle Gellar.

It’s a question I’ve been asked a gazillion times: ‘Why’d you do and not the Faith spin-off?

’ Thing is, even Joss was part of helping me make that decision. Course, if someone could kick some sense into the Buffster and get a movie underway, we'd consider that an apology!

But Buffy had just gone on seven years and Joss was really straightforward: he couldn’t play the kind of day-to-day role he had on Buffy – he had his family.

I love Tim Minear, I trust him wholeheartedly and it wasn’t that I felt without Joss it wasn’t right, but it was a contributing factor.

Dushku attended Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill, and graduated from Watertown High School.

She was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the faith of her mother, though she is not practicing.

Eliza Patricia Dushku (play /ˈdʊʃkuː/; born December 30, 1980) is an American actress known for her television roles, including recurring appearances as Faith on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff series Angel.

She starred in two Fox series, Tru Calling and Dollhouse.

She reveals: “After I finished the show, I’d withdrawn from school and followed up with a couple of films like "Bring It On", but I’d had such an awesome experience working with Joss I was ready to go down that road again.

So I met with Joss and Tim Minear and spoke about the potential for a Faith spin-off.

She is also known for her role in films including True Lies, The New Guy, Bring It On, Wrong Turn and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
