Angel Gets a Blonde Transfusion?
Wednesday, May 30, 2001


Quote:
As much as Mercedes McNab relishes playing Harmony, the undead dingbat of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and sister show Angel, she still dreads reading her scripts. "Every time I get one," she tells TV Guide Online, "all I do is skim to the end to find out if I die. It's really scary."

Luckily, the actress notes, as hare-brained as the blonde blood-sucker can be, she has managed to hit upon a fool-proof survival tactic. "The theme of every episode seems to be, 'Make Harmony as big an idiot as possible, then have her run away with her tail between her legs.'"

All kidding aside, McNab probably needn't fret quite so much over her alter ego's life expectancy: She clearly has made a fan of series creator Joss Whedon, who originally read her for the part of Buffy. "I don't think [Harmony's expanded role] is cosmic payback [because Sarah Michelle Gellar got cast]," she insists. "Joss is just very loyal to the people who work for him."

Actually, so admiring of the former child performer are the powers that be that next season she again may raise hell on Angel. "They ended up cutting the final scene of [the episode in which Harmony found religion] — I was in Mexico, recruiting people for the cult," she reveals. "I don't know if that's indicative of what's going to happen or if that was a tiny thing...

"But," she adds, "they were talking about [bringing back Harmony]. It's just all up in the air right now." — Charlie Mason
I never knew Mercedes tried out for the part of Buffy.

Okay, that's interesting... if nothing else, I find it a fascinating detail. And yeah, being "vamped" really does mess someone all up every which way; such as where she tried to "kiss" Willow on the side of the neck, and the two of them got into a huge fight.

She & Charisma talked about it at a con they went to, as they both tried out for Buffy. They said you just audition so much & don't get most of the roles, so you don't dwell on it & just move on

Okay, thank you for the data; I really am grateful for that information.

Smoking standards changed a lot over the last 15 years

She was only smoking because she thought it made her a better villain

True, and that's the thing with villains: they do do dumb stuff that actually increases their odds of dying sooner; such as shooting themselves up with poisons like cocaine for instance.

Typically villains take drugs that do themselves real harm, bodily and in terms of sanity; it is one of the "creed" of villains.

Well, I know of some DC villains that do, I’ll give you that. I wouldn’t say it’s typical in general though

Not just DC villains either; real-world ones also tend to be drug-addicts at that; they're the type to go for some kind of perverse pleasure, so the parts about Faith and Harmony smoking is a truly well-made sign of what they were involved in. In the former woman's case; she's elected to walk out, in the latter woman's case, she decided she kind of enjoys being naughty like that.
