Nicholas Brendon

Nicholas Brendon, who portrays the sardonic Xander with sensitivity and humor, already has a varied list of credits in television, film and theater.

With his aspiration of playing professional baseball squashed when an arm injury cut his sports career short, Brendon tuned to the acting game for a new challenge. Soon after, he made his television debut in a Clearasil commercial.

He persevered in entertainment and switched to the other side of the camera, working as a television production assistant on Dave's World. After he landed a guest-starring role on the series, Brendon continued to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. Fate soon smiled upon him and he was called to audition for the role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

In television, he had a recurring role on the daytime drama The Young and the Restless, guest-starred on the popular primetime comedy series Married With Children, and starred in the pilot Secret Lives. He played an evil corn follower in the feature film Children of the Corn III ­ Urban Harvest, and starred in Los Angeles theater productions of The Further Adventures of Tom Sawyer at Theatre West, My Own Private Hollywood at The Black Hole Theatre and Out of Gas on Lovers' Leap at the Pasadena Playhouse.

Offscreen, the Los Angeles native enjoys playing basketball, camping and spending quality time with friends and family, including his identical twin brother, Kelly.
