She was one of the three original Potentials to arrive in Sunnydale with Rupert Giles. Molly spoke with a Cockney accent and confused the other potentials by using British slang. When the potentials were locked inside a crypt with a vampire as a training routine, she was the one to slay the vampire. While everyone was picking weapons, Molly revealed that her favorite weapon was the crossbow because it made her feel like she was storming a castle. During the climactic battle in the vineyard, Molly was stabbed with her own knife by Caleb immediately after the death of her fellow potential slayer Dianne.
Behind the Scenes
She was portrayed by Clara Bryant.
In the shooting script of "Bring on the Night", Molly is stated to be British Indian of either 14 or 15 years of age and described as pudgy. When Clara Bryant was cast the character was altered, apparently becoming working-class Londoner.
