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