It’s been 10 years since “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” ended its seven-year run on TV. I had the chance to ask series star Sarah Michelle Gellar about the show’s lasting legacy.
“Wait, wait. Hold on. Really?” she replied when The Huffington Post told her the 10th anniversary of the “Buffy” finale was upon us. “Wow. God, you just blew my mind.” Robin Williams, who accompanied Gellar on the red carpet said, “It’s kind of wonderful.”
“It is,” Gellar said. “I’m incredibly proud of that show — proud of everybody on it, of what we did … You can’t be prouder of that show. It still holds up in reruns and I’m blessed every day … I’ve been pretty lucky.”
Anya: I looked into him and I saw his soul.
Willow: He was walking away, so, unless his soul is in his ass…
Anya: A.J. is my best friend and my dearest darling.
Willow: It’s R.J.. And what you were picking up on was his deep caring and devotion to me!
Buffy’s Him (7.06) makes me laugh more than any other episode, and that’s saying a lot. It is 40+ minutes of pure entertainment.
Buffy: Willow, you’re a gay woman! And he… isn’t.
Willow: This isn’t about his physical presence! It’s about his heart.
Anya: His physical presence has a penis!
