Buffy 2013 Gallery 09 Rupert Giles Anthony Head Photos
Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) is Buffy’s mentor and surrogate father figure. Giles’s primary role in the series is Watcher to Buffy in her capacity as vampire Slayer. He is in the employ of the Watchers’ Council, a British organization that attempts to oversee the actions of the Slayer. From youth, Giles was expected to follow the family tradition and become a Watcher, though as a teenager and young adult he rebelled, dropping out of Oxford University to experiment in dark magic and the rock music scene, until a bereavement brought him to his senses. In adulthood, his loyalty to Buffy and her group of friends costs him his job for a time. As the series progresses, Giles increasingly becomes a father figure to Buffy, Willow and Xander. His encyclopedic knowledge, affinity for magic, moderate fighting skills and willingness to kill make him an asset to Buffy in her fight against the supernatural evils that plague Sunnydale.
Joss Whedon intended to continue Giles’ story as a spin-off series ‘Ripper’, which he intended to produce with the BBC. The series was to depict Giles in ghost stories set in present-day England, coping with loneliness as well as figurative ghosts from his own chequered past. Despite Anthony Head’s availability and the BBC’s willingness to fund the project, rights issues concerning the character ultimately led to it not developing further.
