Sarah Michelle Gellar - "The Grudge 2" Movie - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk Interview

Lesley O’Toole

Tuesday 31 October 2006, by Webmaster

Sarah Michelle Gellar hasn’t looked back since making her name - and fortune - with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The determined young woman spoke to Lesley O’Toole.

.....In common with every successful actor who started on a soap, Gellar considers the job an invaluable learning tool. "Try being a character on a soap opera who has no friends. I was always speaking to myself - 40 pages of monologue every day!"

....Gellar attended an elite Manhattan prep school for rich kids where she scraped by on a 50% scholarship. While her work on films sets with adults gave her an apparent confidence, the real thing only came years later.

"I was different and that’s the one thing you can’t be at school because you’re ostracised. I didn’t have the money these kids had.

The Grudge 2 opens today across Northern Ireland.
