Played by Anthony Head
Anthony Head enjoyed a successful acting career in his native England before coming to the attention of American audiences in the series Love in a Cold Climate, which aired in the USA on PBS in 1982. He was a regular cast member on Fox's short-lived sci-fi series VR.5 (1995) and also acted in an episode of ABC's critically-acclaimed NYPD Blue and the Showtime movie Royce (1994), starring James Belushi.
He upped his American profile considerably by landing the regular role of Rupert Giles, the school librarian who doubles as mentor to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
He divides his time between Los Angeles and London and since "Buffy" finished, he has appeared in many TV productions including Doctor Who and the cult comedy series Little Britain.
