Sarah Michelle Gellar, the actress who starred as the original Buffy in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, wants Zendaya to star in the show’s reboot.
Evan Ross Katz, author of Into Every Generation a Slayer Is Born: How Buffy Staked Our Hearts for the new book, asked her who would get her vote. “I vote Zendaya,” she said. “That would be amazing.”
The show first aired 25 years ago.
“25 years ago today I had the honor to introduce the world to my version of Buffy Anne Summers. It was an uphill battle,” Gellar wrote last week on Instagram.
“A mid season replacement, on a new network based on a movie, that was by no means a giant success. But then there was you. The fans. You believed in us. You made this happen. You are the reason 25 years later we are still celebrating. So today we celebrate you as well. #wwbd“
Would Zendaya make a good Buffy?
