In a deal agreed with The Walt Disney Company all 7 seasons will be available free on Channel 4’s streaming service All 4 on demand on line or via All 4 App, as well as every weeknight on E4 the broadcaster’s free to air digital channel.
This will give Amber fans the chance to see her in the iconic and much loved role of Tara Maclay who made her debut in "Hush" (season 4). Buffy is still an iconic television show and much loved by audiences.
Buffy is still attracting new generations of fans even today so with this in mind if you are a first-time viewer there will be some spoilers below.
Amber played Tara Maclay for 3 seasons. Her shy smile, honesty, and loyalty made a her big hit with fans. Amber's dramatic exit from the show in 2002 was extremely controversial, especially among the LGBTQ community, and still provides a big talking point for fans to this day.
Tara & Willow (Alyson Hannigan) were the first long term openly gay couple on a US network television show. Amber played the role of Tara with both honesty and sensitivity, which earned her much deserved praise. The role had a big impact on her life, and Amber continues to support the LGBTQ community.
