Simply known in the Angel TV Series as “Fred”, to us Amy Acker is much, much more than a Librarian Super Babe. With her innocent smiles, Skinny Chic hour glass figure and deep meaningful eyes that Hugh Grant himself would… anyway, here’s Amy Acker. Enjoy.

[on meeting Alyson Hannigan, whose “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1997) character Willow crossed over to take part on “Angel” (1999) for the season 4 episode “Orpheus”:] “This is our first time actually meeting each other. She’s pretty cool, so I’m hoping that Joss will maybe make me a witch or something, too.” [March 17, 2003]
[on her “Angel” (1999) character Fred facing the evil vampire Angelus as played by star David Boreanaz, who ad libbed a lot of his lines:] “I think it’s great; he has so much fun playing that character. It’s a lot of improvisation and taking risks. You never know what he’s going to say; it changes from take to take. He’s definitely trying to make a shock; he’s going out of his way to make me uncomfortable. It’s hard. She [Fred] has heard everything he can do. He’s bringing out some of the vulnerability in Fred.” [January 23, 2003]
“I want to be strong and a vampire slayer.” [January 23, 2003]
[on her “Angel” (1999) character Fred:] “Looking back at my character, I’ve gotten to do about 12 different parts because I started out crazy, in a potato sack, in a demon dimension. Now I’m in charge of this multimillion-dollar science lab. The journey between those points has really brought a lot of strength to the role.” [in The Fresno Bee, February 4, 2004]
