Julie Benz did a reddit AMA last year that I've just found

the first time I was in the vampire makeup i looked in the mirror and smiled and realized how creepy that was... that was the beginning of Darla... David and I would always laugh when we were in vampire makeup because we were adults running around pretending to be vampires and getting paid to do it!! the flashback scenes were always the most fun....

Singing on Angel was the most daunting scene I have ever filmed in my life!!!

My question for you is, what is the hardest scene you've had to act out? What made it so difficult, and what did you learn from it?

hands down it was singing on Angel!! I am not a singer at all and I was terrified!!! I'm happy I did it though because it showed me that if I put my mind to it (and only have to sing 3 notes) that I can do it!

Haha, yes I can imagine that singing would be daunting when it's not what you're trained for! She did very well as I recall :)

Wasn't it James Marsters who said that he always tried to get his girlfriends to kiss him with the vamp-face on? Hihi, seems like they were all having a good laugh at it. :D
