Buffy: Don't Call Me Sexy

31 October 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

TV babe Sarah Michelle Gellar hates being called sexy. The blonde Buffy The Vampire Slayer star is well-known for being one of Hollywood's sexiest actresses, but she'd much rather be famous for being clever. The 24-year-old says, "Being sexy is being confident. It's important to know you don't have silicone breasts falling out and a thigh-high skirt. Sometimes you meet people and they think, 'Another cute little blonde actress'. That's not who I am." »

Buffy's Shocking Return From The Dead

15 October 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer have been stunned by her return from the dead in the hit TV show -- because it's so graphic. The character, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, died after jumping into a cloud of mystical energy to save the world in the last episode of the previous series. Buffy's friends have rallied round and brought the stunning demon destroyer back to life with black magic. But American fans were left distraught when the episode aired recently, thanks to shots of their heroine rotting in the earth. One fan says, "The shot of her decomposed body was pretty sick." Buffy is seen returning to life in her buried coffin, with her head and hands pushing through the dirt and out into the air. The fan adds, "Everyone knew Buffy would have to come back but we didn't expect it to be this horrible." »

Death Threats Plague Buffy's Sarah

10 August 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar is living in fear following a string of death threats. The actress has received notes written in blood, prompting her to surround herself with bodyguards. Sarah says, "I won't feel safe until he is behind bars." She has been targeted at the home she shares with fiance Freddie Prinze JR. A police spokesman says, "The threats are being taken seriously. We're trying to discover where they are coming from. Sarah gets thousands of letters every week from fans who beg her for dates, but recently a couple contained death threats. Their author claims in the letters that Sarah has been ignoring him." Sarah's spokeswoman adds, "We don't want to talk about this - but there are some weird people out there." »

Sarah: 'I Was A Nerd Before Buffy'

1 August 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

As Buffy The Vampire Slayer, she's one of the hottest stars in Hollywood - but Sarah Michelle Gellar has confessed that before she found fame, she was far from a sex symbol. The blonde actress was launched on to our screens as Buffy, and went onto star in Hollywood blockbusters Cruel Intentions, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Scream 2. But Sarah says before she found fame as the high-kicking schoolgirl vampire slayer, she was a geeky kid. She explains, "I've always been the nerdy, geekish outsider who still remembers how a lot of my classmates used to torture me. Buffy made me a stronger person. Growing up, I always felt different from other kids and they would always tease me about my work in commercials or TV as a way of putting me down. All the success that the series - Buffy - has enjoyed has erased a lot of self-doubts that I grew up with. I don't feel like the nerd or the loser any more." »

BBC To Make British Buffy Spin-off

9 July 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The BBC is looking to make an English variant of the highly successful American show Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The Watcher will star Anthony Head, who plays mentor/"watcher" Rupert Giles in the U.S. series - and will be developed with the BBC by Anglophile Buffy creator Joss Whedon. "Joss has pitched it as a slightly more adult show, a bit like Cracker with ghosts," Head says. Head was offered the job after Sarah Michelle Gellar's character died. "After Buffy died, I asked him whether there was much more for me to do, and he said 'Look, this show is not called The Watcher, it's about Buffy. But how would you feel if there was a show called The Watcher and we made it in Britain?'" Head is glad he'll be filming in the country where he was born. He says, "I felt the time had come for me to go back to England, because I was missing my family so much." »
