Friday's Child is Loving and Giving
Julie Benz was a regular on Buffy the Vampire Slayer the series and the spin-off Angel series. I met her in May 2004 and found her to be a very sweet and charming lady. We talked about some of her charity work and that we had both sponsored American Indian children through Save the Children. She had been asked to be a spokesperson for the charity but didn't think she could represent them if she didn't also sponsor a child. She went on to a major role on the series Dexter, about a serial killer who killed serial killers. She played Dexter's wife and one of the few good influences in his life. Of course her character got killed off - couldn't have that kind of influence in a series about a serial killer, now could they??!! At any rate I was very impressed with Julie and wish her all the best in her life and career.
