Protagonist of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (1997-2003), Sarah Michelle Gellar has been questioned for years about a return to role in a possible reboot of the series that marked the epoch in the 1990s and 2000s. While participating in a podcast in the United States, the actress again refused to intend to star in a new version of the production.
“I think this story we are telling lends itself to. It would be interesting to see how a chosen one would handle it. I don’t think it’s me, I don’t think I should be the only one to do that,” commented Sarah on the podcast On With Mario Lopez. “I am too tired and angry to do that job again,” she added.
At the beginning of the series, Buffy was a young 16-year-old student who needed to fight vampires, demons and other creatures of darkness. In the actress’s opinion, the age factor is one of the main points for not accepting to return to the role. “The monsters were a metaphor for the horrors of adolescence,” he explained.
Sarah starred in Buffy for seven seasons, over 145 episodes. The success also led to the creation of a spin-off, Angel (1999-2004), centered on the kind vampire lived by David Boreanaz (Bones). With so many fans even after years of the attraction’s closure, the actress says she is proud of the legacy she left.
“I love that the story has remained and that people scream for more,” concluded Sarah, who started the series at the age of 20. Currently, the actress is 43.
