Buffy the Vampire Slayer launched in 1997, causing an uproar with television goers because of its action, horror story lines.
Quickly gaining popularity, Buffy became a cult classic. The hit show led by Sarah Michelle Gellar, launched her to superstardom status, but after 12 years the fighting evil sensation sadly came to its demise in 2003.

PROFESSIONAL: During her hiatuses on Buffy, Sarah starred in such films as I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, Cruel Intentions and the live action Scooby Doo. Post-series, she reprised her role of Daphne Blake in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and The Grudge (both released in 2004), followed by The Grudge 2 (2006), Southland Tales (2007), The Air I Breathe (2008) and Veronika Decides to Die (2009). In 2011 she returned to her television roots as twins in the CW's Ringer and 2013's The Crazy Ones, co-starring alongside the late Robin Williams. Most recently she joined the voice cast of Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels as the Seventh Sister.
PERSONAL: Sarah recently celebrated her 14th wedding anniversary with husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. Together they're parents to Charlotte Grace (born 2009) and Rocky James (born 2012). Beyond acting, Sarah spends a great deal of time working on a variety of charities, including Habitat for Humanity, CARE and Project Angel Food.
SARAH'S PASSIONS: “I will say that I have a love for comic books and cartoons,” she says. “You know, growing up I was a book lover and I collect antique books. You know us book lovers, we can be pretty snobby and be like, ‘Comic books? That’s not the same as holding a fifteenth century Chaucer,’ or whatever. But I’ve learned to have such a great love for comic books and cartoons." Regarding Buffy, on Reddit she noted, "I think for me the greatest message of Buffy was all about female empowerment, and not just female, but empowerment in general. High school is the scariest part of people's lives, and I loved that we used the monsters of Buffy as a metaphor for the monsters of life. And to not judge a book by its cover. That we are all capable of taking care of ourselves."
