Vanessa Hudgens Won’t Be A Vampire Slayer

/ June 17, 2010

Vanessa Hudgens doesn’t want to piss off vampire fans.

The 21-year-old High School Musical actress recently turned down a role in a movie version of the hit TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer because she felt that vampire fans might get a little angry if she stars in a film where her main role is driving a wooden stake through their hearts. From Hollyscoop:

She felt that with Twlight still so massive Buffy would not be the best option right now […] The idea was to have [Sarah Michelle Geller, star of the WB series] back but with Vanessa as a fresh, new character. The project has been shelved for now.

Maybe it is best that Vanessa sits out the vampire trend since Twilight will surely “Eclipse” (okay, bad joke) any new vampire films. However, rabid Buffy fans might be a little hurt to find out that Vanessa squashed their chances at seeing Buffy again.

Do you think it is a good idea for Vanessa to pass on Buffy?
