Cordelia Chase is the most popular girl in Sunnydale High.

Originally auditioned for the role of Buffy, but the part eventually went to Sarah Michelle Gellar. She, instead, was given the part of Cordelia after Bianca Lawson (who later played Kendra) turned it down. When asked about her name, she remarks that her mother named her after a perfume. Charisma Carpenter later joined David Boreanaz in the Buffy spin-off, Angel.
