Clare Elizabeth Kramer (born September 3, 1974) is an American actress best known for her portrayal of Glory, the Big Bad of season 5 of the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Personal life[edit]

Clare Elizabeth Kramer was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and spent most of her childhood in Delaware, Ohio. She is of British and German descent. She has a younger sister named Callie; their parents are Terry and Sandy. After graduating from high school, she attended New York University and received a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.[1] She moved to Los Angeles in December 1999.

Kramer married producer Brian Keathley in October 29, 2005. They have four children: daughters Gavin (born 2008) and River Marie (born 2010) and sons Hart (born 2012) and Sky Lynlee (born 2013).[2][3]

Career[edit]

As a child, she was a spokesman and mascot for Wendy's, donning the trademark pigtails accentuated in the company logo.

Kramer's film roles include: The Thirst (as a vampire, this time a former drug-addict); The Skulls III (as a competitive swimmer who follows in her brother's footsteps by joining the title organization); Roger Avary's adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel The Rules of Attraction; and Jessica Bendinger's cheerleading comedy Bring It On. The latter co-starred real-life former cheerleader Kirsten Dunst, and fellow Buffy alum Eliza Dushku.

Kramer has appeared in guest roles in theater and TV shows, including Tru Calling, which starred Eliza Dushku, and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, in which she portrayed fictional movie star and shoplifter Babette Storm.

She is also co-founder of GeekNation, a producer of podcasts and TV shows that services geek culture such as comic books, video games and sci-fi/fantasy movies and TV shows.[4] She hosts Take Five with Clare Kramer, in which she talks with guests about their lives, current events and current projects, and Five by Five, an interview show co-hosted by Roddenberry Entertainment executive Tory Mell.

On June 28, 2012, Kramer participated in a Reddit ask me anything (or AMA) in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer subreddit,[5] with most of the questions centered around her time on the show and her role on the show.
