I’m sure most of you noticed that the site has been in ‘maintenance mode’ for several days, but I was busy working behind the scenes — the content has been completely updated and expanded upon i.e. most, if not all, of the pages you come across, so there’s plenty to see! Although I did get a little impatient, so I’ve launched the new layout before the filmographpy section has been completed, but rest assured that shall be completely finished by next week.
I have to give huge thanks to Mycah for designing the layout once again, and I’m completely in love with it; perfect for the upcoming ‘season’ of news & images, don’t you think? ;)
And finally, a small piece of trivia:

I’ve updated the gallery with over 020 rare HQ images of Amy attending the Los Angeles premiere of Serenity with husband James Carpinello back in 2005 – this is, hands down, one of my favourite appearances; Amy looks so lovely. :heart: I’ve also added a handful of MQ images – thanks to Bad Fred for providing some of those. Gallery links and previews are below, enjoy! :)

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the developments on this new show, I’ve posted the basic synopsis (as written by Joss Whedon himself) and the little information that there is on Amy’s character — Dr. Claire Saunders — below.
If you wish to read further details, though be aware of minor spoilers, then head on over to E! Watch with Kristin (opens in a new window.)
“Echo (Eliza Dushku) is a young woman who is literally everybody’s fantasy. She is one of a group of men and women who can be imprinted with personality packages, including memories, skills, language—even muscle memory—for different assignments. The assignments can be romantic, adventurous, outlandish, uplifting, sexual and/or very illegal. When not imprinted with a personality package, Echo and the others are basically mind-wiped, living like children in a futuristic dorm/lab dubbed the Dollhouse, with no memory of their assignments—or of much else. The show revolves around the childlike Echo’s burgeoning self-awareness, and her desire to know who she was before, a desire that begins to seep into her various imprinted personalities and puts her in danger both in the field and in the closely monitored confines of the Dollhouse.”
What does the actress who plays Dr. Claire Saunders need to bring to the table?
Visible facial scars from a razor-blade attack somewhere in her past or a cooperative, calm personality and a willingness to sit quietly in a prosthetic makeup chair for extended periods each day. Scars notwithstanding, I’m kind of seeing Cynthia Watros or Kathleen Robertson in the part…
Recurring Role: Looks after the physical well-being of the dolls. Has an acid wit that she usually reserves for Topher, who may only be kidding about being smitten with her. (Or he may not.) She is scarred from a razor attack.

OMG! I nearly fell off my chair when Bad Fred let me know about this, but yes, it’s true! Amy HAS been cast in the upcoming Eliza Dushku-Joss Whedon series, Dollhouse (!!) Hopefully, this’ll mean another regular fixture on our screens a la Angel or Alias. :D Exciting news!
Joss Whedon posted on Whedonesque:
Hi campers. We’re having the read-through of the script today. Why would I be nervous? YOU’RE nervous! Anyhoo, I just couldn’t resist letting you know that the recurring roles have actually been cast for some time now. I’m shocked that any part of our casting process hasn’t been leaked somehow. And though I’m a fan of secrets, I’ll give you the last two pieces of this particular puzzle:
November (who will be recurring but does not appear in the pilot) will be played by the luminous Miracle Laurie.
Dr. Claire Saunders will be played by… yet another name I’m gonna have trouble remembering how to spell… Amy Acker.
All in all, pound for pound, soup to nuts, man vs beast, it’s a pretty amazing ensemble. I’m not sure how I landed this troupe, but rest assured I’m gonna write bestest good word for talkacting to them yes! They’re in good hands.
Onward… to adventure! -j.

I’ve updated the video vault with 004 clips of Amy’s scenes from her guest spot on How I Met Your Mother during the season 1 finale back in 2006; this is one of my favourite guest spots – short but cute! Video link and previews are below, enjoy. :)

I’ve been working on the press archive in the last few days and I’m happy to announce it is now open. I am aiming to transcribe every interview I have scanned in the gallery, as I am aware that the text isn’t always big enough to read without straining the eyes too much!
I will be mostly picking interviews at random but if there’s an interview you would like for me to transcribe first, don’t hesitate to get in touch or leave a comment. Without further ado, enjoy the 10+ articles currently in the Press Archive. :)
EDIT: The script has been updated with several new features, so you can now print off or email the post you’re reading, if you so wish. I also updated the archive with an article that I typed up this morning, from 2001 – scans to be added soon! There are a lot of gems in this article, so happy reading. :)

Huge thanks to Bad Fred, we have our first set of scans from 2007 now in the gallery; a recent interview! It is a lovely read, and I highly recommend it. :heart: I’ve also added some scans from 2006, which I kept forgetting to add. Gallery links and previews are below – I shall be transcribing the  article very soon – enjoy! :)

Hope everyone is enjoying the daily updates at the moment – which will continue for the time being since I have some extra free time right now. ;)
In today’s update, I’ve added convention images from over the years to the gallery – many thanks to Steve Rogerson for allowing me to repost his images – and if you have any convention related pictures of Amy, don’t hesitate to send them in. You would, of course, receive full credit.
Other images added include super rare images of Amy on stage in theatre productions and agency headshots. You may also notice that I’ve re-sorted the photoshoot section; the outtakes are now grouped by photographer, which makes for easier viewing. Gallery links and previews are below, enjoy! :)

I was lucky enough to purchase the issue of ‘OK!’ magazine on eBay last week, which features a 7-page spread, so we finally have the full set of HQ scans in the gallery! Unfortunately, however, the actual pages are bigger than my scanner, so the scans aren’t too good. If I ever get around to purchasing a larger scanner, I’ll be sure to re-scan the pages. ;)
In the meanwhile, enjoy the HQ photoshoot (the outtakes are in MQ) – previews and the gallery link is below; under the cut is the interview, which I took the time to transcribe, since much of it was cut off during scanning. Enjoy! :)
