There are few child stars who have been able to maintain the kind of career Sarah Michelle Gellar has had.  Gellar, who turns 41 in April, earned her first acting credit at age 5, when she played Valerie Harper‘s daughter in a TV movie.  At 14, she had a featured role as the young Jacqueline Bouvier in NBC’s acclaimed miniseries, A Woman Named Jackie, and when she was 15, she was cast in a recurring role on long-running daytime soap All My Children.  But it was the TV role she won at age 19 that has defined her ever since.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which premiered on The WB 20 years ago this week, propelled Gellar into a worldwide spotlight, and she’s been a household name ever since.  In addition to changing her career trajectory and her life, Gellar says that Buffy was an extraordinary show that gave her an amazing role to play.  (Click on the media bar below to hear Sarah Michelle Gellar)
