SMG says she ‘just wanted to be a part’ of the soap’s final season! How gracious, amazing, etc. of her!
Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to TV in a big way this fall — and we’re not just talking about her sweet new CW thriller Ringer. “I can officially confirm that I will be doing a guest spot on All My Children,” she announced Aug. 4 at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour.
Before she was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sarah originated the role of Kendall on the soon-to-be-defunct ABC soap, winning a Daytime Emmy in 1995.
“When I heard that the show was canceled I didn’t understand,” SMG said. “It just doesn’t make sense to me. So, I called Judy Wilson, who is the casting director and has been since I was there, and I said I wanted to do something. … I was very specific — I don’t want to be Kendall; that’s Alicia [Minshew]‘s role,” Gellar recounted. “But I just wanted to be a part of it. I have no idea what I’m going to do, so we can take suggestions, but I will be doing one day. I’m excited.”
Wow, Ringer AND All My Children? When it rains SMG, it pours SMG.
