As effectively as hinting that David Boreanaz, who performed Buffy’s immortal love Angel, may very well be a “handful”, Gellar admitted that she and Hannigan had their “moments” that weren’t “rosy” on set.
“Look, we worked really hard hours. We were young, we had ups and downs. Everybody had arguments,” Sarah acknowledged. “There were times where David [Boreanaz] could be a handful. He never really was to me, but I’m sure [he was].It wasn’t rosy. Nobody gets along all the time. And Alyson and I had moments. There’s no question. But you’re young.”
The Cruel Intentions actress went on responsible the poisonous on-set environment for encouraging conflicts between the forged. With the good thing about hindsight, Gellar regrets any clashes she may need had with Hannigan on the time, though she made clear that they get alongside significantly better nowadays.
“I think that unfortunately, the set we were on and the world we were in was pitting us against each other,” she added. “I think it would have been different if it was today. It would have been a very different relationship. But we have a great relationship now.”
What’s extra, Gellar understands that she wasn’t faultless both and opened up about how the additional work she needed to shoulder because the sequence lead brought about her, at that less-experienced age, to resent her co-stars their extra freedom.
“There are times where I wish I could have done things differently, but I didn’t know how to handle the stress that I was under,” Gellar continued. “I was really young, and I didn’t have any outside life. I was the one that was always working, and sometimes I would be resentful of the fact that they didn’t have to work all the time. It ebbs and flows, and anyone that tells you they get along with everyone all the time, it’s just not true.”
This is much from the primary time that mild has been shed on the sad instances that have been had whereas filming Buffy. Most notably, Charisma Carpenter — who stared as highschool imply queen Cordelia — came clean last year in regards to the abusive and manipulative remedy she obtained from creator Joss Whedon. Her allegations have been corroborated by many different castmembers, with Gellar herself throwing her support behind Carpenter on social media.
