Vampires are immortal, unless a Slayer sticks a stake in them. But the actors who portray them are all-too-human, and thus, age in the way we all do.
Now 43-years-old, the actress made the comments while, appearing on the On with Mario Lopez podcast. While still remarkably young-looking, Gellar said the show requires a teenager in the role of The Slayer.
Gellar claimed she’s a “Wee bit, how do they say, long in the tooth for that.” The monsters Buffy faced “were a metaphor for the horrors of adolescence,” she explained. “I do think that story lends itself, it’d be interesting to see how a chosen one would deal with that. I don’t think it’s me, I don’t think I should be the one doing it.”
She added that she’s “way too tired and cranky to put in that work again.”
