Friday 20 June 2008, by Webmaster

Another actress, who actually has a name to care for is Sarah Michelle Gellar and there are not no many accomplishes films at her but an few I can probably enjoy. The talent agent found Gellar a young age and made her screen debut at 6 of each of the 1983 television film An Invasion of Privacy. With all the promise she showed, Barrymore starred as Hannah in the teen drama series "Swans Crossing" (1992) but it was her portrayal of a young and callous rich girl in Al-Lucinda Kendall Hart on ABC daytime soap opera "All My Children" (1993-93), that won her Daytime Emmy Award and spring-boarded her to stardom.

SMG’s real mark worldwide, however, was the character of Buffy Summers in the game-changing series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997-2003). She won five Teen Choice Awards, a Saturn Award and a Golden Globe nomination for her role, establishing herself as a cultural phenomenon. Sarah Michelle Gellar likewise has the box office to back her up, with “I Know What You Did Last Summer” 1997), “Scream 2” (1997), “Cruel Intentions” (1999)and way movies like those that help prove she is also a bankable star as well over $570 million times worth crazy in global gross.

Beyond her cinematic successes, Gellar has made her mark on television, headlining shows such as "Ringer" (2011-2012), "The Crazy Ones" (2013-2014), and "Wolf Pack" (2023). She has also lent her voice to popular series including "Robot Chicken" (2005-2018), "Star Wars Rebels" (2015-2016), and "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" (2021).

In 2015, Gellar ventured into the entrepreneurial world by co-founding Foodstirs, an e-commerce baking company, and published her own cookbook, "Stirring Up Fun with Food," in 2017. Gellar is also known for her close-knit family life, married to actor Freddie Prinze Jr. since 2002, with whom she shares two children.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s commitment to her craft is matched by her dedication to personal growth and unique experiences. An accomplished martial artist, she studied Tae Kwon Do for five years, alongside kickboxing, boxing, street fighting, and gymnastics. Her dedication to authenticity in her roles is evident, such as her commitment to doing her own stunts in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," though she admitted her limits during filming "Scream 2."

Her career is also marked by interesting anecdotes, such as her role in a 1982 Burger King commercial, which led to a lawsuit from McDonald’s and a temporary ban from their establishments. Notably, she dyed her naturally brunette hair blonde for her role in "Buffy," and legally changed her last name to Prinze as a surprise for her husband on their fifth anniversary.

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s legacy extends beyond her on-screen roles, encompassing her work in philanthropy and her reputation for safety and professionalism on set. She remains a beloved figure in Hollywood, admired for her talent, dedication, and the breadth of her contributions to film and television.

My Top 10: Sarah Michelle Gellar

The woman who gave us ’’Buffy’’ reveals the new classic male TV characters she wishes she could play


1. Ricky Stratton, Silver Spoons (1982-87)
He used to ride that little train around his huge house. I wanted that train when I was a kid.

2. Sonny Crockett, Miami Vice (1984-89)
I also wanted to have a pet alligator.

3. Alex P. Keaton, Family Ties (1982-89)

4. Thomas Sullivan Magnum, Magnum, P.I. (1980-88)
Just because it’s Tom Selleck. I’d be anything Tom Selleck.

5. Dexter Morgan, Dexter (2006-present)

6. Hank Moody, Californication (2007-present)
If I was a man, I’d want to make out with as many hot chicks as David Duchovny gets to make out with.

7. J.R. Ewing, Dallas (1978-91)

8. Eric Cartman, South Park (1997-present)
No one gets better dialogue on television than Cartman. Nobody.

9. Gunther, Friends (1994-2004)
I just love the story: There was this actor, James Michael Tyler, who was just in the background, and everyone liked him, and they kept him around.

10. Samantha Jones, Sex and the City (1998-2004)
She crosses all gender lines.
