Sarah Michelle Gellar - Biography
Sarah Michelle Prinze (born April
14, 1977), better known by her birth name of Sarah Michelle Gellar, is an
American film and television actress. She became widely known with her
role as the character Buffy Summers in the television series Buffy the
Vampire Slayer, for which she won a total of six Teen Choice Awards and
the Saturn Award for Best Genre TV Actress and received a Golden Globe
Award nomination. She won a Daytime Emmy Award for her work in All My
Children as character Kendall Hart.
Her film work includes starring roles in I Know What You Did Last Summer
(1997), Cruel Intentions (1999); Scooby-Doo (2002); the American remake of
Japanese horror film The Grudge (2004); and The Return (2006). Gellar also
played an ex-porn star in Richard Kelly's Southland Tales (2007) and was
part of an ensemble cast in The Air I Breathe (2008). Gellar also stars in
the films Possession and Veronika Decides to Die (2009).
Gellar was born in New York City, the only child of Rosellen (née
Greenfield), a nursery school teacher, and Arthur Gellar, a garment
worker. Both of her parents were Jewish, though Gellar's family had a
Christmas tree during the holidays while she was growing up. In 1984, her
parents divorced and she was brought up by her mother on the Upper East
Side. She was estranged from her father from this time until his death
from liver cancer on October 9, 2001.
At the age of four, she was spotted by an agent in a restaurant in Uptown
Manhattan. Two weeks later, she auditioned for a part in An Invasion of
Privacy, a made-for-television film starring Valerie Harper, Carol Kane
and Jeff Daniels. At the audition, Gellar read both her own lines and
those of Harper, impressing the directors enough to cast her in the role.
She subsequently appeared in a controversial television commercial for
Burger King, in which her character criticized McDonald's and claimed to
eat only at Burger King. This led to a lawsuit by McDonald's. As a child,
Gellar modeled for magazines.
Gellar appeared in TV series such as Spenser: For Hire and Crossbow, and
had minor roles in the films Funny Farm (1988) and High Stakes (1989). In
1991, she appeared as a young Jacqueline Bouvier in the TV movie A Woman
Gellar's first major break came in 1992, when she starred in the serial
Swans Crossing and was subsequently cast in the soap opera All My
Children, playing Kendall Hart, the long-lost daughter of character Erica
Kane (Susan Lucci). In 1995, at the age of eighteen, she won a Daytime
Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Leading Actress in a Drama Series for
the role. It was on the set of this soap opera that she met Michelle
Trachtenberg, who would later join the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Gellar also met co-star Sydney Penny, with whom she remains friends.
Gellar left All My Children in 1995. Gellar stated that she was screen
tested eleven times (originally auditioning for the role of Cordelia),
before she landed the lead in the 1997 TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
playing a teenager burdened with the responsibility of fighting a number
of mystical foes, mostly vampires. The show was well received by critics
and audiences alike, spawning a spin-off series (Angel), which featured
three episodes in which she notably guest starred. Throughout its seven
seasons and a total of 144 episodes, Buffy, and by extension Gellar,
became cult icons in the United States, Canada, the UK and Australia,
particularly as an archetype of an "empowered" woman. Gellar sang several
of the songs during the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode "Once
More, with Feeling", which spawned an original cast album.
Gellar has also hosted Saturday Night Live a total of three times (1998,
1999, and 2002), appearing in a number of comedy sketches. In 2000, Gellar
guest appeared as Debbie in the HBO series Sex and the City episode
"Escape from New York". Gellar has lent her voice to animated TV series,
The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and several episodes of Robot Chicken.
Gellar built on her television fame with a motion picture career, and had
intermittent commercial success. After roles in the popular thrillers I
Know What You Did Last Summer and Scream 2 (both 1997), she starred in the
1999 film Simply Irresistible, a romantic comedy. Cruel Intentions (1999),
a modern-day retelling of Les Liaisons dangereuses featured a kiss between
Gellar and co-star Selma Blair that won the two the "Best Kiss" award at
the 2000 MTV Movie Awards. This film was a modest hit at the box office,
grossing over $38 million in the United States and over $75 million
worldwide, and earned several awards and nominations. Critic Roger Ebert
stated that Gellar and co-star Ryan Phillippe "develop a convincing
emotional charge" and that Gellar is "effective as a bright girl who knows
exactly how to use her act as a tramp". Gellar’s role showed her
versatility as an actress, and many were surprised to see her playing a
brunette cocaine addict with an appetite for manipulating and using
people. Her performance was praised by a number of critics, including Rob
Blackwelder for SPLICEDwire, who wrote about the “dazzling performance by
Sarah Michelle Gellar who plunges headlong into the lascivious malevolence
that makes Kathryn so delightfully wicked. (Plus she looks great in a
Gellar next played a lead role in James Toback's critically unsuccessful
independent Harvard Man (2001), where she played the daughter of a
mobster. The movie included two sex scenes with Gellar, helping her shed
her good girl image even more after 1999's Cruel Intentions.
During her growing film career Gellar continued work on the television
series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. However, during the show's later years,
Gellar expressed dissatisfaction about certain aspects of the show.
Shortly after the show's end, Gellar stated that she had no interest in
appearing in a Buffy feature film, although since then she has said she
will consider it if the script is good enough. She did not appear in the
final season of Angel, causing the intended episode ("You're Welcome") to
be rewritten for the character of Cordelia Chase. Gellar has said that she
was willing to appear in the episode, but scheduling conflicts and family
problems prevented it. Another actress voiced Buffy for an animated series
based on the show, which never aired, and the various Buffy video games.
In her feature in Esquire magazine Gellar expressed her pride for her work
on Buffy, "I truly believe that it is one of the greatest shows of all
time and it will go down in history as that. And I don’t feel that that is
a cocky statement. We changed the way that people looked at television."
Gellar's likeness is used in the comic continuation of the series.
After the end of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Gellar's next film was the 2004
horror film The Grudge, which was a success at the box office. David
Wirtschafter, the president of the William Morris Agency (which
represented Gellar), subsequently told The New Yorker that the success of
The Grudge "takes our client Sarah Michelle Gellar, who now is nothing at
all, and...makes her a star, potentially. Suddenly, the Sarah Michelle
Gellar space is meaningful". The remark led Gellar to terminate her
association with the agency; Gellar is now represented by the Creative
Gellar appeared in the sequel The Grudge 2, which opened in October 2006;
in the film, she has a minor role reprising her character from the first
film. Gellar next appeared in the thriller The Return, which was released
the following month. Sarah played a businesswoman haunted by memories of
her childhood and the mysterious death of a young woman. The movie was
marketed as a horror movie and many including critics were surprised to
find The Return was, as Rafe Telsch said, "just a murder mystery with a
few supernatural elements". The movie pulled in a disappointing $4,800,000
weekend gross with little promotion.
Gellar then lent her voice to two animated films: the animated fairy tale
Happily N'Ever After, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She followed those
with a string of films including Southland Tales, The Air I Breathe,
Suburban Girl (earlier known as "A Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing"),
and Possession (a supernatural thriller based on the South Korean film
Jungdok known to English language audiences as Addicted). Southland Tales
opened at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2006 and was released in the US
in November 2007.
Suburban Girl and The Air I Breathe were screened at the 2007 Tribeca Film
Festival. Suburban Girl eventually went straight to video in early 2008,
much to fans' disappointment. It was described as "a blend of Sex and the
City and The Devil Wears Prada" and a "pseudo-sophisticated romantic
comedy" according to Variety.com. Her on screen chemistry with Alec
Baldwin was either criticised or praised, with Eye For Film commenting,
"The film works best when Baldwin and Gellar are together - aside from the
fact that Gellar seriously needs to eat a bun or two". Film website
moviepictirefilm.com stated "Gellar and Baldwin both give wonderful
performances and make their chemistry incredibly real and ultimately,
quite heartbreaking. Containing a ton of laughs and killer fashion that
could give "The Devil Wears Prada" a run for its money, this movie has
something uncommon in most romantic comedies, tons of style and a huge
The Air I Breathe was released theatrically the same month to generally
poor reviews. The New York Times called it a "gangster movie with
delusions of grandeur." However, Gellar's performance was praised by a
number of critics, DVD Talk Review noted that "her character here has the
deepest emotional arc, and she hits all the right notes."
Gellar was offered a role in Stardust but turned it down to spend more
time with her husband. Other roles she turned down include the role of
Juliet in Romeo + Juliet (having had to turn it down due to scheduling
conflicts with All My Children) and an undisclosed role in The Faculty.
She was also offered the role of Brittany Foster in The In Crowd, but
turned it down. The part later went to Susan Ward.
The film Possession, starring Gellar, has had a range of release dates -
starting with February 2008. The film was finally set to be released in
theatres in January 2009, but due to financial problems at YARI Film
Group, the release was yet again pushed forward. In March 2009 it was
announced that the film would skip theatrical release altogether, and go
straight to DVD/Blu-Ray. It was set to be released on May 12, 2009.
However, the movie was not released on DVD/Blu-Ray as scheduled.
Gellar also stars in Veronika Decides to Die (2009). The film tells the
story of a young woman suffering from severe depression who rediscovers
the joy in life when she finds out that she only has days to live
following a suicide attempt. Filming of the movie began on May 12, 2008,
in New York City and finished in late June. It was reported that Kate
Bosworth was previously attached to the project. The movie was released in
Brazil on August 21, 2009 but there is currently no release scheduled for
the USA and UK.
On June 25, 2008, it was announced she is no longer attached to the film
version of the video game American McGee's Alice.
It was reported on September 25, 2008 that Gellar would return to
television in the HBO series The Wonderful Maladys. The show is about
three dysfunctional adult siblings living in New York and struggling to
deal with the loss of their parents years ago. Creator Charles Randolph
told Variety that he wrote the part with Gellar in mind, and described
Gellar's character as having "a kind of zealous immaturity – like a drug
addict with a to-do list." Gellar and Randolph would serve as executive
producers. HBO shot the pilot in May 2009. According to an interview with
Adam Scott the show was not picked up.
Gellar met future husband Freddie Prinze, Jr., during filming of the 1997
teen horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer but the two did not begin
dating until 2000. They were engaged in April 2001 and married in Mexico
on September 1, 2002 in a ceremony officiated by Adam Shankman, a film
director and choreographer with whom Gellar had worked on Buffy the
Vampire Slayer. Gellar's bridesmaid was her closest friend of many years,
Lindsay Sloane. In 2007, Gellar legally changed her name to Sarah Michelle
Prinze in honor of the couple's fifth year of marriage. In 2004, while
filming The Grudge in Japan, Gellar visited the famous Japanese swordsmith
Shoji Yoshihara (Kuniie III) and bought a Katana from him as a birthday
present for her husband. Gellar learned that she needed clearance from the
Japanese government to remove the sword from the country and, after
eventually succeeding, stated that it was "incredibly difficult" to do.
Gellar has reflected on her choices as an actress; she frequently mentions
how "proud" she is of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She has also been her own
critic, talking about movie roles she has taken, saying, "Simply
Irresistible was just a bad choice — and for that, it was a great learning
experience. I wasn't ready to make that movie. I was too young. The script
was not ready. I knew in my heart before I left to make it that I should
During her 2006 interview with Marie Claire, Gellar spoke about her
thoughts on the movie industry for women. She spoke about her views on the
roles of women in movies saying, "You realize it's a very tough market for
women. For me it's about getting roles where women get to do something
active, not the girlfriend, not the wife. There are mainly two types of
roles for us, women in-jeopardy films and romantic movies." Gellar has
been praised by fans and critics alike for being a strong role model for
young girls and women. Gellar went on to speak about how the business has
changed and about magazine-cover attention-seeking Hollywood-starlets.
Gellar said (when the interviewer said she was shocked at how many
actresses seem to 'need' to be on the cover of a magazine like Us Weekly),
"Can I interrupt you? Do you think those actresses strive to be on those
covers? Because I don't, I think it's people striving to get that
celebrity position, but I think you'll find that most 'actors' don't want
that. Because when you know too much about them, it takes away the
illusion that a film creates."
Gellar is an active advocate for various charities, including breast
cancer research, Project Angel Food, Habitat for Humanity and CARE, a
leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty, all of which
she says you get to "physically do something". She says, "I started
because my mother taught me a long time ago that even when you have
nothing, there's ways to give back. And what you get in return for that is
tenfold. But it was always hard because I couldn't do a lot. I couldn't do
much more than just donate money when I was on the show because there
wasn't time. And now that I have the time, it's amazing."
Gellar has said in interviews that she believes in God, but does not
belong to an organized religion. Gellar has said in interviews that she
collects rare editions of classic children's literature. Gellar has four
tattoos. She has a symbol for integrity on her lower back; a heart, a
dagger and a cherry blossom on her ankle and two dragonflies on her back.
Gellar has revealed that she suffers from a phobia of being buried alive.
She has said "I really fear graveyards and I have a big phobia of being
buried alive. It was really hard being an ass-kicking vampire slayer when
you are afraid of graves."
Gellar and Prinze have a daughter, Charlotte Grace Prinze, born on
September 19, 2009.

[On job pressures] "There's so much pressure on all of us right now.
On Katie Holmes, on James Van Der Beek and myself, to do these
movies, and do as much as you can because there is the slight
feeling that one day your phone will stop ringing. It's not about
the craft, per se. It's so easy to fall for it all because people
remind you constantly that as fast as it comes, it can go. And I
think there is this sort of paranoia, this need to keep working. And
I know that I felt it, and for the first three years of the show, I
never had more than a week off, except for Christmas. That was it".

[about "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997):] "To me, the scariest
elements of horror films are the things that could really happen.
And what is more scary than high school? ... What I like about the
show is that it reminds you it's O.K. to be different. What people
think isn't necessarily true. If people walk away with half of that,
we've done our job." [New York Times, April 27, 1997]
[on playing Kendall Hart on "All My Children" (1970):] "I seduced my
stepfather, and when he wouldn't sleep with me, I slept with the
stable boy, cried rape, and my mother stabbed him with a letter

papers, and locked up my little sister. I think that was all in the
first week." [New York Times, April 27, 1997]
[on attending the Professional Children's High School in Manhattan:]
"Everybody there had a talent, and everyone was respected. If
somebody didn't like you--they didn't talk to you! They didn't make
fun of you, punish you. You could, you know, mess around with how
you dress. You really had that chance to find yourself, and I thank
God for that school. I went to that school feeling amazingly
untalented. That school was my lifeline. Let me tell you
something--talent night at our school? There was nothing like it."
Horror films are where women can shine and have a chance to lead.
They always save the day in these films.
[On gay marriage] "I have good friends, gay couples, who've been

law, their love isn't acknowledged when I have girlfriends who have
married four times by the age of 25."
[On religion] "I don't believe in organized religion and I never
No, that's what bothers me. That's how they think. Okay, this is a
summer...I remember that it used to be you could see great movies
any time. Now it's like summer is for blockbusters, fall is for the
movies that they can't fit into any other time, that's like
September. Then Oscar movies start, it used to be post Thanksgiving.
Now the awards are earlier so it starts earlier. January is when
they dump movies. And it's just so... it seems to me so obvious that
wouldn't it be better for the marketplace to have these movies
spread out? Not just people don't only go to the movies in summer
time. If that was the truth, then in the summer time they would
count the whole week's worth of the box office but it's still only a
weekend. So why does it matter...sorry, I get a little upset. It's
Basically I only like to choose films that I don't understand. As
long as they're greater than my mental capacity, I figure I gotta be
doing something artful, right? Isn't that what makes something art
when you don't understand it?
I wish, and I wish so much for the film industry right now. I wish
so much for originality and I wish so much and I think that we're
caught in this difficult cycle right now because our studios are
corporations now. I keep talking about the old 1940s, where one guy
with a cigar and a scotch made decisions for a studio and now
because there are all these computer corporations basically,
technology companies and there's so much else that goes into a
decision that it's very difficult to get films that are different
that are off the beaten path made. It's much easier to get something
unoriginal made than to get something original.
"Simply Irresistible (1999) was just a bad choice - and for that it
was a great learning experience. I wasn't ready to make that movie.
I was too young. The script was not ready. I knew in my heart before
I left to make it that I should back out".
"I hope positively. One thing about the show was it was never
categorized. It was drama, comedy, action, horror, all of those
things combined. And I just want people to remember it as a fabulous
run, a fabulous seven years." - how she would like "Buffy the
Vampire Slayer" and her work on it to be remembered.
In this day and age, everything is so cross-marketed that the lines
have blurred in my opinion between what is an actor and what is a
celebrity. What is reality? All you have to do is pick up a magazine
or turn on the television and you can get ideas from places that
five years ago you couldn't.
"That's so weird. It's one of those things that's like you go on
location and you're there for a week getting ready. Here it's like
you're walking the dog, you're paying the bills and then 10 minutes
later, you have to go to work. It's a very sort of odd- - I'm
grateful for it and so glad to actually film a movie in Hollywood.
Although some of these locations are pretty far. I could probably
fly to some of them"- Working in LA filming the movie Southland
"It's funny in the sense of he'll say to me, 'You don't understand.
You're doing a movie. I've been on my feet all day.' I'm like, 'For
real? For real I don't understand?' So that's kind of odd. And the
times are funny because I'm on nights and he's more organized in
terms of...or last week he was getting out of the house at like 3:30
in the morning." On her doing movies and Freddie doing his show.
"Do a sitcom. Don't do a one hour. That was actually my advice. He
was going to do a one hour. I was like, 'Are you crazy? You know
what people make for sitcoms and how little they work, right? You
see all of our friends on sitcoms.'" - Her advice for her husband,
Freddie Prinze Jr..
You know what? I only see myself doing films that interest me and
that are a little bit off the beaten path. I will go wherever that
takes me. I just - - I always say it just can't be generic. I can't
be the girlfriend or the wife or the - - you can't play the
characters that I've been blessed to play and then do that. I can't
be the girl in the film.
"I think the best piece of advice I've ever gotten is to trust
myself and go for my dreams. I got that from my mom."
"Being sexy is being confident. It's important to know you don't
have to have silicone breasts falling out and a thigh-high skirt.
Sometimes you meet people and they think, 'Another cute little
blonde actress.' That's not who I am." - on rather being known as
clever than sexy
"You can't be selfish and have a child. Right now I want to live my
life and have fun. I want to go sit in my Jacuzzi and drink wine all
night." (on not wanting children at this point)
