Sarah Michelle Prinze (née Gellar; born April 14, 1977 is an American actress, producer, and entrepreneur. After being spotted at the age of four in New York City, she made her acting debut in the made-for-television film An Invasion of Privacy (1983). Following a role in the teen drama series Swans Crossing (1992), her television breakthrough came in 1993, when she originated the role of Kendall Hart on the ABC daytime soap opera All My Children, winning the 1995 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.

Gellar received international recognition for her portrayal of Buffy Summers on the WB/UPN drama series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003), which earned her five Teen Choice Awards, a Saturn Award and a Golden Globe Award nomination. Her most successful films at the box office include I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) as Helen Shivers, Scream 2 (1997), Cruel Intentions (1999), Scooby-Doo (2002) and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) as Daphne Blake and The Grudge (2004). She subsequently had leading roles in mostly independent films, such as Southland Tales (2006), Suburban Girl (2007), TMNT (2007) and Veronika Decides to Die (2009). Gellar went on to headline the short-lived CW drama thriller series Ringer (2011–2012) and the CBS comedy series The Crazy Ones (2013–2014).

In 2015, Gellar, along with Galit Laibow and Greg Fleishman, founded Foodstirs, an e-commerce startup selling baking kits, and in 2017, she released her own cookbook, Stirring Up Fun with Food.

Early life
Gellar was born on Long Island, New York, to a family of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. She is the only child of Rosellen (née Greenfield), a nursery school teacher, and Arthur Gellar, a garment worker. Both of her parents are Jewish, though Gellar’s family also had a Christmas tree during her childhood. In 1984, when she was seven, her parents divorced and she was raised by her mother on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. While growing up with her mother, she lost contact with her father, from whom she remained estranged until his death in 2001 she once described him as “non-existent”, and in the early 2000s, she stated: “My father, you can just say, is not in the picture. I’m not being deliberately evasive about him, it’s just that there’s so little to say.” Besides being a working child at the time, Gellar was a competitive figure skater, once finishing in third place at a New York State regional competition, as well as having a black belt in taekwondo.

Gellar was given a partial scholarship to study at the Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, as her mother was not able to pay full tuition, for which she was constantly bullied. She said in an interview with The Independent: “I was different and that’s the one thing you can’t be at school, because you’re ostracised. I didn’t have the money these kids had”. Gellar was not present in class for most of the time at the school as she had to work in several acting projects simultaneously, recalling that she “had more absences in the first month than you’re supposed to have for an entire year. I was telling them that I had back problems and had to go to the doctor the whole time”. Gellar then briefly attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, but dropped out due to acting obligations; the teachers threatened to fail her because of her constant absence from classes as she was busy going to auditions, despite earning good grades. Gellar graduated from the Professional Children’s School in 1994 as a “straight A” student with a 4.0 grade average. As Gellar spent significant time working on All My Children while “trying to graduate”, the majority of her senior year was completed through guided study.[source wiki
