Okay this is only MY interpratation of Angel so don't blame me if this isn't what you think. <G> Angel is a vampire. He is 242 years old. He was evil until one day he drank the blood of a gypsy girl and the girls family put a curse on him so that he was still a vampire but a vampire with a soul. See when you become a vampire the demon takes your soul, so the gypsy clan restored it as punishment. He would know ever person he killed and tormented for the past 100 years and live like that the rest of his life. In this years season finale it talks about his past events of his life.
See when he became good he became a loser. He fed off rats for about 90 years until this guy named Whisler who supositly is a good demon came a long and helped him.
Okay so the Whisler guy said he wanted to help Angel become a better person. Angel was resistant at first but then Whisler took him to I think it was either a high school or Jr. High. A old car pulls up in front of it and you see the window roll down. It's Angel watching the front steps of the school. Down the steps comes a YOUNG Buffy, probably about 13, or 14. I'm not sure if she was a freshman in high school or in 8th grade. She's gabbing with her friends (she's a airhead!) and going on about some guy that is asking her to a dance. Angel is observing all this. Soon a fat guy with a mustache comes over to Buffy and tells her it's time to learn her destiny. She is like "Huh?" He tells her she's a vampire slayer and he needs to train her. So the scene switches to her killing her first vampire. Angel is watching her fight. He has an expression of kind of "Worry" on his face because she's not doing to hot. But she kills the vampire after accidentally staking him in the stomach instead of the heart.
The next scene you see is Buffy coming home after this event her mother yelling at her for being out so late. Buffy saids she's sorry and goes into the bathroom. You watch the young Buffy crying as she hears her parents fighting. (Her parents later get divorced and that's partly why they move to Sunnydale CA. She lives in LA at this point.)
Angel is also watching the young Buffy crying and he has this expression of hope for the first time in over a 100 years. He wants to make a different. He's allready starting to fall in love with Buffy. He goes back to Whisler and tells him that he wants to help Buffy. Whisler saids "She must be prettier then the last slayer" And so thus begins Buffy the vampire slayer and Angel the vampire with the soul.
Anyways, So Buffy gets kicked out of school 'cus vampires were in the gym and she burned it down. So she moves to Sunnydale which is actually what's called the hellmouth where all the center of the vampire activety takes place. She meets Giles her watcher, becomes friends with Xander and Willow, and thus begins that little tale, back to Angell... lol
Her first meeting is in an alley way where he gives her a big silver cross and this conversation took place...
Angel: I know what you're thinking, but don't worry, I don't bite!
Buffy: Who are you?
Angel: Let's just say I'm a friend.
Buffy: Well, maybe I don't want a friend!
Angel: I didn't say I was yours.
So from there on she asks what his name is later he tells her Angel. Blah, blah, blah. And then he just gives her messages from time to time. But pretty soon it's obvious they like eachother. So during a particular close call Angel saves her and then she saves Angel and they run back to her place. He stays a few nights on the floor of her bedroom to have his wounds heal. BTW she doesn't know he's a vampire at this point.
Then he saids maybe he needs to leave. She thinks it's because he doesn't like her but then he saids he's fighting the urge to kiss her and that it wouldn't work out. But they kiss anyways. Well he haden't't fed in a few days and he was hungry so he went "Vamp" on her.
She screams he runs away... To make a long story short she thought he tried to kill her mother but it was some other vampire. So she went to kill him but she found out he didn't do it. He saves her again, and then dissapears.She sees him later at this dance club they all hang out at called "The Bronze." They dance to this sad song and the following conversation takes place.
Angel: I just wanted to see if you were ok and your mother.
Buffy: We're both good. You?
Angel: If I can go a little while without being shot or stabbed, I'll be alright. Look, this can't...
Buffy: ...ever be anything. I know. For one thing, you're like 224 years older than I am.
Angel: I just gotta...walk away from this.
Buffy: I know, me too.
Buffy: One of us has to go here.
Angel: I know.
Angel: This is...
Buffy: ...painful. I know. See you around?
So he doesn't see her for about 5 episodes. But he's still watching her... Just like all those years ago. Trying to protect her. So the season finale of first season she basically dies but Xander brings her back to life. She sees Angel again and they are kind of together again. In the season premier she is real messed up by her almost death experience and she acts like a total bitch to everyone. Including Angel.... He shows up in her bedroom in the middle of the night to warn her about some evil stuff going down and she tells him basically how she hates him only telling her bad news and to leave. She saids...
Buffy: "Is that it? Is that everything? Y'know, 'cause you woke me up
from a really good dream."
Angel: "Sorry. I'll go. I missed you..."
It was sad... Later on in the episode she saids...
Angel: "What are you afraid of?.. me?..us?"
Buffy: "Could you contemplate getting over yourself for just a second? There's no us. I'm sorry if I was supposed to spend the summer mooning over you but I didn't. I've moved on .... to the living."
But in the end she breaks down and he holds her and tells her everything is going to be okay.
Well Angel got really jealous of her friend Xander later and she told him she didn't love him...
"I don't love Xander." Buffy.
"Ya but he's in your life. He gets to be there when I can't. Take your classes, eat your meals, hear your jokes and complaints......He gets to see you in the sunlight." Angel.
Kind of sad. But she wants everything to work out and date him but he keeps resisting saying it won't work.
"This isn't some fairytale. When I kiss you- you don't wake up from some deep sleep and live happily ever after." Angel
"No. When you kiss me I want to die." Buffy. :(
So later half of there love is finally admitted.
Angel: "Do you love me?"
Angel: "Do you?"
Buffy: "I love you, I don't know if I can trust you.
But it's okay he finally relents and starts to date her. Yay! But he's still ashamed of what he is and once when he saved her and he had his vampire face on she leaned in to touch his face and he jerked away...
. Buffy: "Hey, don't be such a baby. I'm not going to hurt you."
Angel: "It's not that-I.."
Angel: "You shouldn't have to touch me when I'm like this."
Buffy: "Oh... I didn't even notice."
But she kissed him. :-)
And so their love grew...
Buffy:"When I look into the future all I see is you; all I want is you."
Angel: "I know the feeling."
Until the abrupt climax. When finally the other half of the love was admitted.
Angel: "I love you, I try not to, but I can't stop."
.And so of course they made love. D'oh! One thing about the gypsy curse though if Angel was to experience a true moment of happiness (Ie finally admitting he loved her and being with her totally physically) the curse would be revoked and he would once again be evil...
And so he became the evil Angelus once more destroying and hurting everyone in his path. She found out when she woke up alone in bed the next day no sign of him. Later she talked to him worried about where he was and he told her to lighten up there sex was no big deal.. Get over it, really mean stuff. And then he said "I'm leaving." In a moment of pure desperation Buffy said
Buffy: "Angel! I love you.."
Angel: "Love ya too, I'll call ya!"
And later she found out that he was evil. Devastated she fled to her room and cried her eyes out. He tormented her... he made her life a nightmare until one day he went to far and killed Giles's (her watcher) true love, Jenny. He broke her neck and left Giles and the rest of the gang devastated.
In a really cool speech Angel did in a voice over he said...
"Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir. Open it's jaws, and howl. It speaks to us, guides us. Passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have?
Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief.
It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we can live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead."
Okay. Giles had a girlfriend named Jenny who found a way to restore Angel's soul. So Angel before she could revoke his evilness broke her neck... Poor Giles completely devastated fled to Angelus's to kill him... But Buffy arrived knowing he could not defeat Angel himself. So she dragged Giles out of the building before he died. Furious at Buffy for stopping him he shoved her away. Buffy also angry punched him screaming "What are you trying to do get yourself killed?!" and then in the most depressing scene ever she clung to him and they both sobbed as she said "You can't leave me I can't do this alone..."
So now Angel is being a jerk and wrecking havoc, and Buffy is left with a choice kill him, or be killed. So she decides to kill him. In an act of mercy Buffy stabs Angel in the heart and sends him off to hell. It is a sad scene because the real Angel is back and she tells him.
Buffy: "I love you."
Angel: "I love you."
Buffy: "Close your eyes."
And so he closes them and she kills him. Why you may ask? Well A. The mouth of hell was open (LONG story!) and in order to close it she needed his blood. B. She wanted to kill him because he couldn't remember anything he had done before, and because she didn't want him to have that pain, she killed him.
So Buffy's ran away yadda yadda yadda, but he still haunts her dreams...
Buffy: "How did you find me here?"
Angel: "If I were blind I would see you."
But not always in a good way...
Angel: "I loved you!"
Angel: "Go to hell!"
And soon Buffy decides it's time to move on... But as soon as she does oops, Angel is back from Hell. D'oh! He flys through the air naked no less (hey it was a site!) and then for a while' he's kind of crazy 'cus he got out of hell and all. But in the end he comes through and saves Buffy and falls on his knee's crying her name. Then Buffy informs Angel that she needs something more stable in her life and that she has a boyfriend. Angel looks confused and hurt and doesn't know what to say. But he manages later to ask how her boyfriend is. But he still worries about her and wants her to be careful. Soon he'll be better and beable to take care of himself which he thinks is better. That way he doesn't have to be around Buffy. (It's to painful)
So Buffy doesn't tell the others, and tells Angel that she'll of course help him as long as he needs it. But there passion for eacother is to much and they end up kissing...
Buffy: "What am I doing? What are you doing?"
Angel: "I don't know."
Buffy: "Shame on you! Oh god."
But the gang finds out about Angel and there very upset. Faith (The new slayer) tries to kill Angel but Buffy stops her.
Soon that lovable fiend Spike comes back and makes Buffy realize just how much she is still in love with Angel. So she decides she can't see him anymore. Angel doesn't want her to leave and things there must be some way they can work things out.
Buffy: "I'm not coming back. We're not friends. We never were. And I can fool Giles, I can fool my friends, but I can't fool myself. Or Spike for some reason. What I want from you I can never have. You don't need me to take care of you anymore. So, I'm gonna go."
Angel: "I don't accept that."
Buffy: "You have to."
Angel: "Look... there's gotta be some way we can still see each other."
Buffy: "There is... tell me that you don't love me."
And of course he can't tell her that because he does love her. So she leaves him. Soon though Angel is haunted by victims he's killed in his past and he's going kind of crazy. This thing called the First Evil which is the Evil of all evil's tells Angel that he must kill Buffy in order to have peace. But Angel can't do that, so he's rather die then hurt her. He goes to kill himself and would have succeeding if it wasn't for Buffy's interference. She tells him she can't help but still love him, and to make a long story short a Christmas mircle prevents Angel from dying.
And so the saga continues...
Okay, I'm saying RIGHT NOW that I got this bio off the official Buffy the Vampire sight. I don't' want to get sued I'm NOT making money off this. I am just pasting this because I don't really know anything to put about the actor! I REPEAT! DON'T SUE, NO MONEY!
While relatively new to the world of acting, David Boreanaz has catapulted
to stardom with his quiet intensity as the mysterious and tortured Angel
on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
A native of Philadelphia, Boreanaz was exposed to television at a young age - his father is a veteran weather forecaster for WPVI in Philadelphia. Since seeing the inspiring performance of Yul Brynner in "The King and I" at the young age of seven, Boreanaz had a feeling that acting would be in his future. After graduating from Ithaca College, he moved to Los Angeles to try his luck in Hollywood.
While studying the craft of acting, Borneanaz lived the life of a starving actor doing such jobs as parking cars, painting houses and handing out towels at a sports club. Yet, it was while walking his dog in a Hollywood neighborhood that a manager spotted his brooding, intense look and instantly signed his as a client.
His first big break was a guest shot on "Married...With Children" playing Kelly Bundy's (Christina Applegate) biker boyfriend. He has also appeared in the television movie "Men Don't Lie."
On Stage, Boreanaz has performed at the Ensemble Theatre in "Hateful of Rain," at the Gardner Stage in "Italian-American Reconciliation" and "Fool for Love," and on theatre row in "Cowboy Mouth." His feature film credits "Aspen Extreme," "Best of the Best 2" and "Eyes of the World."
Currently, Boreanaz lives in Los Angeles with his dog, Bertha Blue.
The end. ;)
