Sarah Michelle Gellar

I am Sarah Michelle Gellar, also known as the girl who saves the world a lot. Ask me almost anything!

Saturday 1 March 2014, by Webmaster

Hi reddit, I’m Sarah Michelle Gellar. Most of you know me from Buffy or Cruel Intentions. But now I’m playing the role I’ve always been born to play on The Crazy Ones. I’m also doing a charitable campaign with Unilever called Project Sunlight that helps support a bright future for children.

Anyways, Victoria’s going to be helping me today. Let’s answer some questions!


For all the years I’ve been doing this, I just want to say thank you to all of my loyal fans. I so appreciate each and every one of you. You are all the Chosen One.

What was your favorite Buffy episode to work on?

Sarah Michelle Gellar :

I have a few, so bear with me.

I am in a room full of Buffy fans and everyone is yelling out their favorite episodes!

My first one is The Prom because I just love that whole story, and I thought it just encapsulated the show so well. It was beautiful and heartbreaking.

I also love Hush because I think it’s not just the scariest episode we’ve ever done but the challenge to do a silent episode - I thought it would be easy but it was way harder.

And the other favorite I love is The Body, because it was beyond difficult and heart wrenching to shoot, and I don’t know if many people know this, but my entire first scene was all done in one take. It was 4-5 minutes of one long take.

Sarah Michelle Gellar :

Some of my costars are around, so if you have questions for Jimmy or Hamish or Amanda, I can probably track them down!

I’ve found my costars at the Commisary - where else?

How was your role in Call Of The Dead in Call of duty?

Sarah Michelle Gellar :

SO Much fun. I was the first female playable character in that game! Pretty awesome.

Sarah, if you awoke tomorrow to discover you were Bruce Willis, what’s the first thing you would do?

Sarah Michelle Gellar :

Oh my god, that’s so easy! I would just walk around all day yelling "Yippee-Ki-Yay Motherfucker!" easy.

Sarah, if you could create an alcoholic drink based on anything in the Buffyverse, what would you call it and what would be the ingredients?

Sarah Michelle Gellar :

A fruit punch mouth! And what’s in it? A red punch with rum.

Hi Sarah! Thanks for doing this! I loved you in Buffy and how you portrayed such a strong woman and a great role model. I have a few questions:

How many times did you accidentally stab yourself on the set of Buffy?
What did James Marsters’ hair feel like?
How did David Boreanaz smell?

Sarah Michelle Gellar :

Oh please?!? How many times do I hurt myself getting out of bed? For a pretty graceful person I’m a klutz.

Ha! Well at the time on Buffy, over-processed. As any woman knows what it’s like.

I can say that David honestly smells very good and continues to smell very good. I apologize to Jamie his wife for answering that question.

Hi Sarah, what is the weirder experience you’ve had while meeting a fan ?

Sarah Michelle Gellar :

It’s never weird. It’s usually a really exciting experience, except when it happens in the bathroom. I prefer it not to happen there.
