Ellie and Leigh discuss the relationship between Willow played by Alyson Hannigan and Tara (Amber Benson) in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They discuss the impact of their relationship and why it remains so important to fans all these years later. Willow and Tara’s relationship was a key part of Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s storylines for three seasons and broke new ground as they were the first long-term openly gay couple on network television in the USA. Ellie and Leigh guide us through the complete timeline of Willow and Tara's relationship highlighting all the key events and much more.
Amber joins them to talk about what it was like playing Tara, the importance of the role and the impact of working in a time of increased censorship. How she, Alyson and the show’s creator Joss Whedon worked around some restrictions to bring key moments of Willow and Tara’s relationship to the screen. This was not only important to the show’s storyline but fans and the wider LGBTQ community as well. Amber also takes part in a Q & Gay, this is a must listen for fans of Amber and/or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
