Eliza Dushku’s faithful fans have followed her from project to project, and she wants them to know she thinks they’re “the dopest.”
The 33-year-old actress had gathered those devotees over her long history with genre projects, from her earliest role in True Lies through her time in the Whedonverse with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Dollhouse to her voice work on such animated characters as Catwoman and the She-Hulk.
She returns once again to her genre roots with The Scribbler, a dark sci-fi thriller based on the 2006 Image Comics graphic novel by Daniel Schaffer. Arriving today in select theaters and on iTunes, director John Suits’ film stars Katie Cassidy (Arrow, Supernatural) as Suki, a young woman who attempts to “cure” her mental illness using an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. But as she comes closer to reaching her goal, she wonders: What if the final unwanted identity turns out to be hers?
