Sarah Michelle Gellar biography

Sarah Michelle Gellar was born on April 14, 1977, in New York City, USA.

After the 1984 divorce of her parents, Sarah was raised by her mother, Rosellen. Incidentally, her biological father, Arthur Gellar, died in his apartment in October 2001.

Fate stepped in when Sarah was 4 years old after an agent discovered her eating at a local restaurant. She made her film debut with the made-for-TV movie Invasion of Privacy, and a slew of television appearances soon followed in shows like The Guiding Light, Crossbow, and Spenser: For Hire.

After small parts in films such as Over the Brooklyn Bridge and High Stakes, Sarah was cast as the teenage version of Jacqueline Bouvier in the made-for-TV movie on the former First Lady, 1991's A Woman Named Jackie. She also appeared in the short-lived 1992 television drama Swans Crossing along with Mira Sorvino.

Sarah gained even more recognition thanks to her role in "All My Children."

Sarah was awarded an Emmy for her portrayal of Erica Kane's daughter. Sarah was offered the role of Juliet in 1996's Romeo + Juliet, which went to Claire Danes because of scheduling conflicts with All My Children.

But if it's any consolation to Sarah, her most significant role to date was only an audition away. Sarah was aiming for the role of Cordelia in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but after her audition, it was clear that she was meant to play the lead. Sarah has been slaying vampires as Buffy Summers since the show's debut in 1997, and it has enjoyed a lot of critical and commercial acclaim. The fact that she has studied Taekwondo for five years and has also studied kickboxing, boxing, street fighting, and gymnastics makes her butt-kicking role much more believable.

Despite the massive success of Buffy, Sarah also turned up in some impressive movie roles in the late '90s, in films like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Cruel Intentions, as well as other flicks like Scream 2 and Simply Irresistible. She also appeared uncredited in the Freddie Prinze Jr. movie She's All That.

Speaking of Freddie, the two became friends on the set of "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and after years of friendship and romance, the couple announced their engagement on April 14, 2001, Sarah's 24th birthday.

Living in Los Angeles with her Prinze, it's clear that Sarah is enjoying the best years of her life. Her latest film role, as Daphne Blake in the film version of Scooby-Doo, is sure to be the beginning of a promising film career for Sarah.

She can be seen in Harvard Man, Happily N'Ever After, and TV's 2004: A Light Knight's Odyssey to her filmography.
