You can catch Eliza Dushku’s newest project – a sci-fi short – on YouTube now.
The Watertown native, famous for her role in Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel,” is teaming up with director Kevin Tancharoen, who is related to Whedon by marriage.
In the short, “The Gable Five,” Dushku is one of five test subjects for Dr. Gable, a scientist trying to come up with a drug that is “so powerful it could be used to win every battle, every war, with no casualties,” according to the YouTube description.
She described her character as a “badass” in an interview on the Comicbook.com blog. When asked about she often plays strong female characters she said it is in her DNA and also credits her mother and other feminist role models in her life, as well as growing up with three brothers.
