Biography

An icon of the new breed of young, empowered females of the 1990s, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar earned her reputation over six years as the star of the cheeky action/fantasy series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (The WB, 1997-2001; UPN, 2001-03). With the exception of the well-received "Cruel Intentions" (1999), a modern, teen-centered adaptation of the French classic Les Liaisons Dangereuse, Gellar's feature film work stuck close to "Buffy" range with horror films like "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (1997), supernatural thrillers like "The Grudge" (2004), and the campy mystery of the "Scooby Doo" films (2002, 2004). Gellar was one of the top box office draws of the teen set, bestowed with many an MTV and Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award, but even as the actress aged out of that demographic, her continued forays into dark and creepy features held men's magazine readers and the sci-fi crowd captive.
