How 'Andi Mack's Buffy Pays Tribute To 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Namesake

There’s a new Buffy on the small screen and she isn’t slaying vampires.

Sofia Wylie stars as Buffy Driscoll on Disney Channel’s Andi Mack and definitely isn’t afraid to speak her mind…especially when it comes to her name.

In the first episode — which you can watch right now on the Disney Channel App, Video-on-Demand, Disney.com, Disney Channel YouTube, iTunes, Amazon and Google Play — Buffy makes a little joke about being named after the famed vampire slayer, which celebrates it’s 20th Anniversary today.

So, how does Sofia actually feel about playing a Buffy?

“I love her name. I wish my real name was Buffy,” she told JJJ. “I think it’s such a cool name.”

Sofia actually started watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer after she learned of her character’s name, too. “That’s such a cool show. Anyone who gets to be named after her is pretty awesome.”

We definitely agree on that!

Don’t forget to meet the rest of the Andi Mack cast now!
