Sarah Michelle Gellar is speaking out to thank fans of her beloved series Buffy the Vampire Slayer on the 20th anniversary of the first episode airing.
The 39-year-old actress, who was only 19 when the show first aired, took to Instagram to share an emotional letter to her fans.
“20 years ago today, I had the greatest privilege to bring Buffy to your TV screens for the first time. It was a long and challenging road to get there,” Sarah said. “First the movie, then a passed over pilot presentation, and eventually a mid season time slot on a little known network. That first season, we liked to think of ourselves as the little show that could.”
“While we knew the potential, I don’t think any of us saw the lasting impact our show would have,” Sarah continued. “As an actor, you wish for that one role where you can leave your mark and forever be remembered, with Buffy I got so much more. She’s a feminist challenge to gender hierarchy. Buffy may have been the Chosen One, but I was the lucky one.”
