Sarah Michelle Gellar, who plays the titular character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has stated that a revival “doesn’t need to be done.”
As Sarah Michelle Gellar ruled out a comeback, it was devastating news for Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans.
Fans clung to the notion of a reunion series because the actress, 45, played the monster slayer for seven seasons until 2003.
The blonde actress, however, feels that her time on the programme is officially ended and that a new actor would need to step into the lead position if the programme were to be revived.
She acknowledged in an interview with SFX Magazine that there is no chance she will reprise her role as the character. “I am quite proud of the program we produced, and (a resurrection) is not necessary,” she remarked. We finished up there. I support them in their decision to continue the narrative since it is one of female empowerment. Every girl who has the power can have the power, which is how the show ended. Everything is set up for someone else to be in charge.
But as I just mentioned, Buffy’s analogies were the horrors of adolescence. Although I don’t consider myself a teenager, I feel youthful.
The actress supported Zendaya taking on the major role if the program was to continue.
She also talked about the “hostile” environment she frequently encountered behind the scenes during filming last month.
Because women were viewed as “dangerous” if they made friendships, she argued that women were “pitted against one another.”
“For so long, I was on a set that I think was recognized for being a really toxic male set,” Sarah said to The Wrap.
“So that was how all sets were, and that women were pushed against one other — that if women became friends, then we became too powerful, so you had to keep that down,” the author said.
She continued by saying that even if things have improved over time, more needs to be done to give women a voice.
At the time, she revealed to her Instagram followers that her current priorities are raising her family and “surviving [ing] a pandemic].”
