Starring in Buffy
The Vampire Slayer has its pressures even for a veteran actor like Gellar.

in order to play her role as the teenage vampire slayer.
A New York native,
Gellar resides in Los Angeles. Currently, Gellar is providing her voice for the
animated features Happily N'Ever After and 2004: A Light Knight's
