This shift from the stiff grin they usually wear for the rest of the episode is subtle, but their limited range of motion makes the subtle changes all the more dramatic. Toy recalls:

The thin planks allowed them more mouth movement than plaster, but it took significantly less time to prepare on set than paint. This compatible relationship between the actors, producers, and makeup companies on the set of “Hush” made for one of the best – and scariest – episodes in “Buffy” history.

His roles may have been short-lived, but Toy has played some of the most memorable monster roles in the series.
