Sarah Michelle Gellar Bio
Born and raised in New York City, Sarah Michelle Gellar got into acting and modeling when she was only 4 years old. Her first major break came in 1992, when she starred in the serial Swans Crossing and was subsequently cast in All My Children as Kendall Hart, Erica Kane’s (Susan Lucci) long-lost daughter. Three years later, at the age of 18, she won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for the role.
But Sarah is best known for playing Buffy Summers in the hit WB/UPN series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She fought off mystical foes — and heated up the small screen with David Boreanaz — for seven seasons, winning six Teen Choice Awards and nabbing a Golden Globe Award nomination in the process.
Her film work includes starring roles in I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997), Cruel Intentions (1999, ‘memba that liplock with Selma Blair?), Scooby-Doo (2002), the American remake of Japanese horror film The Grudge (2004), The Return (2006), and Veronika Decides to Die (2009). 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).
She and fellow teen idol Freddie Prinze Jr., whom she met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer back in ‘97, tied the knot in 2002. She changed her name to Sarah Michelle Prinze in 2007 for their fifth wedding anniversary, and the couple welcomed a daughter, Charlotte Grace, in September 2009.
