At A Glance
Sarah Michele Gellar began her acting career at age four when she was discovered by an agent while eating in a local restaurant. Three weeks later she was on the set of her first film, An Invasion of Privacy. This chance discovery would later boost her to stardom on television and in film.

In February 1993, Gellar began work on the ABC soap opera All My Children. Though she remained with the show for only a little over two years, Gellar won a huge fan base - and a Daytime Emmy. Nominated for the Outstanding Younger Actress trophy in 1995, Gellar won the award the following year. Upon receiving the award, Gellar confirmed rumors that she intended to leave the show.

Gellar moved to California and began auditioning for various primetime projects. She auditioned for the supporting role of Cordelia on the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but Gellar ended up landing the title role in the series. It catapulted her to instant stardom.

Gellar's film career started with a series of uncredited performances. As her star rose, so did her name on the theater marquees. Her first breakthrough film was the teen flick Cruel Intentions. Roles in horror films came next, including I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, and The Grudge.

In 2002, Gellar married actor Freddie Prinz, Jr., her co-star in the Scooby Doo films.
