Eliza Dushku – Faith

Her role in the Buffy-verse: Fresh off her success from Bring It On, Eliza Dushku played another slayer who was an adversary turned eventually ally. She arrived on the scene as Buffy’s polar opposite, with her dark hair, red lips, and careless attitude about her duty as a slayer.

Faith arrived in Sunnydale as a result of a glitch in the line of slayer succession and the gruesome murder of her watcher. Understandably upset, she never quite shook off her taste for revenge, and she soon defected to the wrong side, pitting herself against Buffy — a dangerous thing to do. The character soon left the Buffy-verse to take up with Angel in L.A. She’ll always hold a place in my heart as the Dark Slayer, as I have a soft spot for a girl with a little bit of edge.

Her post-Buffy career: Soon after Buffy, Dushku went on to star in her own series, playing the title role, Tru. Tru Calling was about a time-traveling medical examiner who can go back for just one day to change the fate of the corpses that wind up in the morgue. With such obvious talent for stealing a scene, Joss Whedon gave her a show of her own, Dollhouse, that was woefully underappreciated. She had a recurring role on Torchwood shortly thereafter but took a break to go back to school at Suffolk University.

Where is she now? Never one to stay away too long, Dushku appeared on the CBS legal drama, Bull, as J.P. Nunelly, a possible adversary/love interest for the lead character.
