Sarah Michelle Gellar @ Paley Festival 2008

Sarah Michelle Gellar (in Chloe) reunites with her Buffy the Vampire Slayer castmates at the Paley Center for Media’s 24th William S. Paley Television Festival held at the ArcLight Theater in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The 30-year-old actress reminisced about auditioning 11 times before landing the role of Buffy Summers: “All my friends felt sorry for me because I was on a midseason replacement on a network no one had heard of on a show based on a movie that wasn’t all that.”

When creator Joss Whedon was asked about putting together a Buffy movie he was optimistic but had some doubts: “So many stars would have to align. But, I think it would be really cool.”

Additional Buffy cast appearances were by: Nicolas Brendon, Michelle Trachtenberg (in Lela Rose), Seth Green, James Marsters, and Charisma Carpenter.

And is that a tassle on Nicolas Brendon‘s necklace??

30+ pictures inside of SMG and the rest of the Buffy cast at 2008′s Paley Festival…

  • montana mike

    buffy and her sister were hot, but i always wanted to bite charisma carpenter on the neck, so we could be together forever

  • Ally

    Seems like everyone’s gone back to their old look:
    Sarah with the season 4 wavy (and blonde) hair, Charisma with straight hair…
    Charisma looks stunning, and Sarah’s outfit is the prettiest.
    I love the group pictures.

    (Only James and Nick look a little worn out…)

  • Mary

    I miss Buffy. I love Sarah!!!!! She is beautifulll

  • xxxxx

    i miss buffy so freaking much.
    and i love sarah’s outfit she look so pretty.

  • Jennifer

    oh, those were the days… I miss Buffy.

    but I don’t know what they’d put in the movie… I liked how season 7 ended. I think Buffy only really works as a series, not as a movie.

  • OMG

    IS SHE NOT JUST GORGEOUS!

  • mjkbk

    To Ally: James looked tuckered out because he had JUST gotten off a plane from Mexico, where he’d been filming DRAGONBALL for the last 2 1/2 months.

  • Jo

    They look great, espacially SMG <3

  • Poka

    michelle looks beautiful and her eyes are so pretty, can’t wait to see her in 17again movie, love her!!!

  • doodle

    I really wish I could have gone, but with living in England and not knowing about it and all…yea

    There is so much awesome Sethness, and James :O
    SMG looks very pretty =]

    Where’s Willow. ??? T_T

  • Halli

    I miss this show SOOOOO MUCHHH!!!!!!!!

  • amber

    Charisma is STILL hot!!! I hate her, lol. She’s so beautiful. And SMG still looks the same as she did as a kid…same with Seth. James looks a hot mess and so does Nick, but it’s good to see them again. But why no David Boreanaz, Alyson Hannigan, and Anthony Stewart Head?

  • Nicole m

    Buffy looks a little puffy on the lips.

  • [marie]

    Charisma Carpenter looks great. She was one of my faves…

  • Lillianne

    First photo looks like her lip is about to turn inside out. One day all these gals will look at themselves with the big old pooched out lips and wonder what they were thinking deforming themselves like that.

    Just because everyone is doing it doesn’t mean you have to do it too.

  • **

    james marsters looks like a crusty poop old swinger, nicholas brendan got fat…

  • mjkbk

    To Lillianne: In Sarah’s case, it’s not collagen. It’s genes. Her upper lip has ALWAYS looked that way, even when she was a child doing Burger King ads.

  • Brit4ever

    Oh god…Memories!!

    LOVE BUFFY!!!!

  • ness

    OMG, Gellar looks so gorgeous. I’m not her fan or something like that, but this look really suits her!

  • nanou

    great to see them together

    Sarah is beautiful, Michelle is cute and Charima is pretty

    Nicholas is hansome, i love him, cute, simply, sweet

    James is not good, his hair so bad (i know his for movie)

    Seth is ok

  • ari

    THE BEST TELEFILM EVER!!!!!!!

  • Kara

    James Marsters is really ugly now – miss Spike

  • sistasoy

    Spike is really ugly! mind u the only time he ever did look half good was when he was Billy Idol esque!

  • KAte

    It’s so good to see them together again. I truly miss the show.

  • MandA

    Nicolas Brendon is wearing a lotus seed mala – the man must have gone all spiritual. I don’t think he looks fat, I think he looks great. Poor James Marsters tho… that hair is so bad!

  • dR. JAMES RODGERS

    Sarah Michelle has lip injections. I am a plastic surgeon and one of the tell-tale signs are bumps and ridges inside the lip track.
    You can see the bumps just under her upper lip near the gumline.

  • buckeyegurl

    I MISS BUFFY!!!!!!!!!!

  • K-Mart

    :( No Eliza? I wanted pics of her and SMG together dagnabit!

  • hisyumminest

    Miss Buffy so much. David and Allyson are absent.

  • gabi

    James is still hot, I love him. But he does look better with blonde hair. I so miss buffy. the best show ever.

  • Brit4ever

    @K-Mart I was looking forward for pics of Sarah & Eliza too.=(

  • sammie

    what’s going on with that nose?

    ugh!

  • Mirander

    Seeing them all together again brings back so many memories. My favourites from Buffy the vampire slayer are Spuffy aka Jarah meaning Sarah & James. I have got both of James Marsters Cds Civilised man & Waterfall. I think he was the best looking man on there but I have to agree with you lot what has he done with his hair. He is still hot through. I don’t like David who played Angel because why wasn’t he there. It was so sad when spike did in the last episode on buffy but he did it to save everybody else & he really was a champion. I now it was ages ago now but I heard that James Really liked Sarah in real life & she did too but they couldn’t be together because Sarah was married to that freddie guy. I’ve also heard she is only with freddie for her career but she didn’t get very far did she. Sarah come back to buffy PLEASE! You could do it were spike is stock in another dimension & you somehow get him back. You could also do it from that point & say 10 years later. But whats the point you have so many thngs going for you right now you wouldn’t even give coming back to buffy & the rest of the cast a second thought. After all that i would just like to say good look to all the buffy cast & there future especially Jarah xoxoxox lots 7 lots of love from Mirander
