Sarah Michelle Gellar is one of those actresses who played such an iconic role back in the day on Buffy the Vampire Slayer that she will forever be recognized as Buffy Summers. However, there’s more to this actress than playing the teenage slayer who fought against evil vampires and demons — she’s also a producer and entrepreneur. Gellar’s career was on fire back in the ’90s and early 2000s when she took on roles in huge projects like The Grudge, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scooby-Doo and Cruel Intentions. After getting married and having children, Sarah took a big step back from the Hollywood scene and started a food crafting company called Foodstirs. After a 10-year hiatus from the small screen, she returned for small projects like Ringer and The Crazy Ones. Fans have watched her grow up on-screen from being a teenager on All My Children to now a mom and wife, but there’s still things to learn about this actress.

In 2006, there was talks of a movie on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch being produced (the film was never made), and at the time Gellar was once again eyed for the role of the teen witch, but by then she was too old.
