Mr. S: Did you ever find that you'd see an episode later, down the line, and it was edited into something you didn't even know you were shooting for?
Benz: No, that never really happened. I mean, there was a time on Angel where I was playing...Season Two of Angel when they brought me back to life, and I was still playing Darla as a vampire, and then they came to me and said, "No, we're going to make you a human" [giggles], and I was like, "Oh." I was making choices as if she were still a vampire, but it was still the same, performance-wise, so it didn't really matter.
Mr. S: As long as you're coming from the same place emotionally, it doesn't really have much bearing on the final outcome. It's still the same performance.
Mr. S: So, you mentioned earlier that you really enjoy watching television. So, what are some of your favorite shows?
Benz: Well, I love Weeds, I love Californication...I love Californication so much that I think my dog actually looks like David Duchovny. It's bizarre. I love watching that show. I'm a big fan of Entourage. I love Nip/Tuck. I love Grey's Anatomy. Desperate Housewives is fun to watch. I'm looking forward to some of these new shows. Dirty Sexy Money looks good. I love TV so much. My TiVo
