Amber Benson

Benson is perhaps known for playing Tara Maclay, the lesbian-witch girlfriend of Alyson Hannigan's Willow Rosenberg on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. This role alone would earn her a place in the geek girl hierarchy, but since, Benson has tirelessly turned out geek-ertainment both as an actress and a writer, with the Sandman/Neil Gaiman inspired Calliope Reaper Jones book series. Benson has said "I am literally a twelve year old geek boy trapped inside a woman's body."
