Buffy is Back! Sarah Michelle Gellar Back on TV Means More Family TimeMariaLianos
Sarah Michelle Gellar is back in the swing of things – both in her personal and professional life.
She’s back on the silver screen starring in a new CW drama called ringer. And she’s finding a balance with her work and home life with husband, Freddie Prinze Jr. and their 22-month-old daughter Charlotte Grace.
It’s been almost ten years since Gellar starred on a TV and the actress says she “loves” being back on set.
“I didn’t realize how much I miss the atmosphere until I started back,” says Gellar. “There’s something about television … seeing the same people everyday, looking forward to the scripts — I’m loving it more than I thought I was going to.”
But career aside, Gellar says nothing will come between her and being an active and present mom.
“I want to be able to go home at night and see my daughter,” she explains. “I want to be there for her first day of school and her school recital. Television offers me that — they’re amazing at working around schedules. All of the big milestones I’m there for.”
She’s played many TV roles, most famously the iconic Buffy Summers on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and then moved onto film. But now Gellar is back on TV!
“[Freddie’s] great, he loves it,” Gellar, 34, said, of her husband’s feelings about her latest career move. “He’s perfectly happy to stay at home and put the baby to bed.”
She will also return to All My Children for a guest star appearance during the show’s final episodes — but not in her previous role as Kendall.
September looks like a fab month for TV!
