Ditto. I recall interviews in which she vehemently denied that she was anything like Faith. But over the years, I've noted that Faith is really the 'darker' facet of Dushku. In short, there's a lot of Faith in her. Faith just has the ability to turn her moral compass off when it annoys her.

It's very much Eliza's sense of humor and personality that comes through in Faith. Or that'show I see it. Her other roles departed much more from what we know of Eliza D's personality.

Happy 29.9, Eliza. The joy felt at your birthday is balanced with the dismay of being unable to offer it to you in my own personal, warm, possibly inappropriate way.:halo:

Ah, another year gone by! I was just reading that she signed on for the Pilot of a new show--I think it was a new version of The Saint.

Yep, and Roger More is actually one of the producers - and he and Ian Ogilvy (who did an 80's tv version) have small parts - details here.

Well we seem to have let this one slide in recent years - wishing our comely Albanian Danish a very happy birthday!

Apparently she got engaged this past summer to one Peter Palandjian, a real estate exec and former pro tennis player some 16 years her senior, and posted this image, along with this caption:

Awww, she's no longer single, then! :laugh:

Well, or another way to look at it would be that she's still not married! :laugh:

I finally watched this last night (it's been made available digitally, via Amazon, Netflix, and maybe some others). The result of which is that now IMDb credits it as a 2017 release, when it was filmed in 2013, IIRC! :laugh:

I'm not sure what took them so long to get it out there, maybe Moore didn't want it released, and it took his passing to free things up (pure speculation there on my part). Anyhow, I can see why it was never picked up. Even as made for TV movies/backdoor pilots go, it was pretty unremarkable. I've only ever seen the Roger Moore TV show and the Val Kilmer movie, it seems like the Moore show is the definitive screen version of the character. This felt nothing like that.

Where Templar is very independent in the TV series, here they seemed to be setting him up as someone who works with others and has field agents around the world. Allegedly Dushku's character (or her name, at least) is a one that appears in some of the original novels. In this movie she's basically Templar's handler, she feeds him information via an earpiece when he's out on missions. She's a very Faith-like character, in that she kicks butt and doesn't need help looking after herself.

The gist of the TV movie/pilot is that they're setting up the story arc for Templar, but I think that's part of the problem. What made the Moore show great was that it was episodic. Yes, all television was then, but it made sense from the character's point of view. He didn't have a day job, or anything he had to be doing, so it was just the stories of him getting into and out of trouble. The novelty of previous Saint actors being the villains in this one doesn't carry much weight (Moore is limited to an extended cameo at the end), and I don't think it would have been very interesting if it had been picked up.
