Michelle Trachtenberg Says Joss Whedon Was Not Allowed to Be Alone With Her on 'Buffy' Set

Michelle Trachtenberg came forward this week to say that Joss Whedon exhibited inappropriate behavior while around her on the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and now she’s adding to her statement.

The 35-year-old actress was only 14 when she joined the show in season four as Buffy’s younger sister Dawn Summers.

Michelle initially shared co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s statement about Joss and said, “Thank you @sarahmgellar for saying this. I am brave enough now as a 35 year old woman….To repost this. Because. This must. Be known. As a teenager. With his not appropriate behavior….very. Not. Appropriate.”
