Sarah Michelle Gellar Covers 'Entertainment Weekly'
Here’s what the 34-year-old star of Ringer had to share:
On why Ringer works for her: “Ringer is the perfect balance of what audiences want to see me do. It’s Cruel Intentions meets Buffy.”
On not wanting to be typecast: “That was a bit of a letdown for me after Buffy. I thought, The [movie] roles are going to be just like Buffy. You’re not going to get stuck playing ‘the girlfriend’ or ‘the wife,’ you’re going to get these three-dimensional characters. But truthfully, those roles are very rare. It’s a better time for actresses on TV than on film.”
On taking a break to spend time with her daughter, Charlotte: “I got to see the first step, hear the first word. Most people – and certainly many working moms – are not lucky enough to get that. I wanted to appreciate the fact that I had worked so hard all my life to be able to have those moments. I don’t regret anything about making that choice.”
