Personal Quote:

[on why she chose not to continue her role as Dawn Summers] "I felt like every year, my character got younger as I got older. The scripts even had me speaking grammatically incorrectly. So I had to do something else. Besides, the show is over. If you miss it, get the DVDs." See more »

Trivia:

She worked with Sarah Michelle Gellar on the long running All My Children (1970) in unknown episodes in the mid-1990s before Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) and they were good friends. Sarah was the one who recommended Michelle for the part of "Dawn". See more »
