Personal Quote:

[on his role as Charles Gunn on "Angel":] Everybody on the set is fantastic and there are so many interesting people. I absolutely love working with David Boreanaz, and Charisma Carpenter I completely adore -- she teaches me to dance. She's definitely one of my favorite people on the set. And Alexis Denisof is such a dynamic actor. He's phenomenal. There is so much I can see happening to this ... See more »

Trivia:

Says that his mother didn't want him to become an actor; instead, she had hopes of him becoming a lawyer or a priest. In the final season of Angel (1999), Gunn got a special brain spell and became a top Wolfram & Hart lawyer. In Conviction (2006) he played a lawyer again, this time at the DA's Office. He then played a prosecutor again on Raising the Bar (2008). See more »
