Sarah Michelle Gellar Biography
Sarah Michelle Gellar was born on April 14, 1977 in New York. An only child,
she was raised on New York's Upper East Side by her mother, Rosellen Gellar,
At the age of four she was spotted by an agent whilst dining at a restaurant
with her mother. A week later, she found herself in a TV film called An Invasion
a Privacy, starring Valerie "Rhoda" Harper. A few weeks after that she was
cast in her first TV commercial. The commercial was for Burger King in which
she complained that McDonalds served skimpy burgers. McDonalds sued her employers,
thus beginning the infamous "Battle of the Burgers." Since that Burger
King incident, Sarah appeared in more than one hundred commercials over the
Sarah went to Columbia Grammar School on 93rd Street (New York), across Central
Park from where she lived. When Sarah was just seven years old her father
divorced her mother. She will not discuss her father publicly.
During junior high school Sarah she says she went through an awkward phase.
"That was my time to feel that I didn't know where I fit in. I tried to be
jock. I tried to be cool. And I couldn't find my place."
As a result of her acting success, Sarah felt isolated and was left out of
things by her fellow students. Life became a little easier though when Sarah
changed schools and started at New York's famous Professional Children's School.
She said that at that stage her acting helped pay for her education.
At the age of fourteen, Sarah won her first major role as the young Jacqueline
Bouvier in the NBC TV Mini Series, A Woman Named Jackie (1991). From strength
to strength, in 1992 Sarah won the lead role of Sydney Rutledge in the syndicated
teen soap opera Swan's Crossing.
She was nominated for an Emmy in 1994, although didn't win the award. But
in 1995 she was nominated again and this time went home with the Emmy award
for Outstanding Younger Actress.
"At 15, my role required me to make out with Michael Nader, who was 50. I
was playing older than I was. But I wasn't older and the best thing I can
say about those days is that it taught me to memorize a 60 page script in
two hours and to hit my technical mark without blocking the other actor's
She finished High School early, graduating from the Professional Children's
School two years early (when she was 15) with a 96.7 grade point average [100
is perfect]. She said "I would have had a 97 average but I got a B+ in trigonometry,
which was my fault for taking it in the ninth grade." Despite her acting success
her mom made sure that school came first "If I ever got below an A- on a report
card I had to stop working. That was why my studies always had to come first.
If I had a big test, that was more important than a commercial or a job and
at any point if I wanted to stop acting that was going to be my decision.
After I graduated from high school I said I'd give myself two years to really
focus on my career and then if it wasn't going well I would go back to college
In 1996, Sarah Michelle Gellar was chosen to play the lead role in Buffy
the Vampire Slayer and it was this role that was to gain her such enormous
