‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ star Julie Benz responds to latest Joss Whedon allegations

Following Charisma Carpenter, who played Cordelia Chase on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it’s spin off Angel taking to twitter to shared her experience working with Buffy creator Joss Whedon, Julie Benz has commented on the allegations.

Benz played the role of Darla in the first, second, and fifth seasons of  Buffy. The character later appeared in the Buffy spin-off series Angel, making at least one appearance in every season.

Benz wrote in a statement on Twitter:

“My heart goes out to all victims of abuse. Sending love to my fellow Buffy and Angel survivors. I stand with you and support you. ♥️”

In the wake of the investigation into Whedon’s on set behaviour whilst working on the Justice League, Carpenter has accused Whedon of a hostile and abusive work environment with other cast members showing support and sharing their stories on social media including Sarah Michelle GellarClare KramerMichelle TrachtenbergAnthony HeadJ. August RichardsEmma CaulfieldJames Marsters, Amber Benson, Eliza Dushku, and former showrunner Marti Noxon.

Danny Strong, Adam Busch, and Tom Lenk — who played the comically villainous Trio on Season 6 — all expressed support on Saturday for the “Buffy” actors who have alleged misconduct by the show’s creator.
