EMMA CAUFIELD MAKES 1ST US APPEARANCE AT WIZARD WORLD PHILADELPHIA
Caufield is best known and loved for her starring role as the young and beautiful demon-turned-mortal, “Anya” on the hit series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1997) starting in 1999. Wizard World Philadelphia is her first U.S. convention appearance!
Wizard World Philly debuts Emma Caufield aka Anya of Buffy fame for her first ever U.S. convention appearance.
“I’m excited to be making my first signing appearance in the US at Wizard World Philly! Can’t wait to meet all the fans and experience one of America’s greatest cities,” said Caufield of her commitment to the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic-Con.
Caulfield’s role as “Anya” originally started out as a guest, demon-of-the-week, appearance in a December 1998 episode. She was called back for a few more guest spots for plot reasons, which is when Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy, realized her talent.
She appeared in most of the episodes the following season, and after that, was promoted to a full time series regular. Caulfield’s humor and levity added a comedic dimension to the show, which made its final bow in May 2003.
Most recently Emma headlined an all star cast, playing the role of “Oona” in the critically acclaimed comedy/sci-fi film Timer ( 2009), an Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival. She also starred in the festival favorite, indi-comedy Why Am I Doing This? (2009) where she played “Amber”, a Hollywood party girl who will do anything for a shot at stardom.
Emma also recently guest starred in the hit television show Private Practice and continues to provide voices for a variety of characters for the hit animated show Robot Chicken.
Other notable roles include a turn as a major character on “Beverly Hills, 90210″ (1990) in the 1995-1996 as Brandon’s journalist girlfriend, Susan Keats, in which she appeared in thirty episodes.
Emma also starred as “Caitlin Green” in the Revolution Studios thriller, Darkness Falls (2003), which opened as the number one film at the box office. Emma also starred and executive produced the award winning ( Newport Beach Film Festival) mockumentary Bandwagon (2004), where she played a self absorbed but well meaning version of herself. In 2006, Emma starred in the award winning short film Hollow, where she took home two Best Actress awards ( Beverly Hills Film Festival and Syndey Film Festival), for her stirring performance as a disturbed, heroin addicted mother.
