Anthony Head has called the Buffy the Vampire Slayer remake a 'horrible idea'.

The actor played Buffy's mentor Rupert Giles in the TV series for seven seasons and he is not backing the plans if it doesn't involve the show's creator Joss Whedon.

Speaking to the Huffington Post the actor said: "It's a horrible idea in as much as Buffy was a great conceit.

"It was a great story. A great idea. I don't feel that you can then remake that without the original creator on board. It doesn't make sense."

"Somewhere down the line, I suppose... you could [do a remake] but it never sits very comfortably. With someone like Joss, why would you want to?

"Well, I know why you want to. You want to make money. As he said recently, ‘I hope it’s good!’ [laughs] I love him."

Head is currently starring as Uther in BBC's hit show Merlin, which has just finished a third season.

But he has just completed work on The Great Ghost Rescue Squad.
