Sarah did a live Q&A on reddit and here are a few of my favorite question and answers, you can read the whole transcript by clicking HERE!
Sarah, if you awoke tomorrow to discover you were Bruce Willis, what’s the first thing you would do?
Oh my god, that’s so easy! I would just walk around all day yelling “Yippee-Ki-Yay Motherfucker!”
Seeing Sarah Michelle Gellar say the word ‘motherfucker’ fulfilled in me a need I didn’t know I had.
What was your favorite Buffy episode to work on?
I have a few, so bear with me.
I am in a room full of Buffy fans and everyone is yelling out their favorite episodes!
My first one is The Prom because I just love that whole story, and I thought it just encapsulated the show so well. It was beautiful and heartbreaking.
I also love Hush because I think it’s not just the scariest episode we’ve ever done but the challenge to do a silent episode – I thought it would be easy but it was way harder.
And the other favorite I love is The Body, because it was beyond difficult and heart wrenching to shoot, and I don’t know if many people know this, but my entire first scene was all done in one take. It was 4-5 minutes of one long take.
Spike or Angel?
How is your day going 🙂
My day? well, with mercury in retrograde it didn’t out so great. I spilled my cold medicine all over my car which I had just gotten detailed. Then I locked my keys in a place in the car where keys go and are never found again. But now I’m getting to spend my day with fans so it’s getting better.
I’m so glad I’m finally early for one of these! Buffy is my all-time favorite show, it would just make my year to get a response! Ok two questions (if you don’t mind):
I think part of what makes BtVS so great is that it was so ahead of its time in a lot of ways, while at the same time perfectly encapsulated the era in which it aired. What do you think was Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s greatest contribution to televison/pop culture/etc. (or what has stuck with you the most)?
Buffy had some of the best dialogue ever. Do you have a favorite “Buffy-ism?”
Thanks for being amazing and taking the time to do this!
I think for me the greatest message of Buffy was all about female empowerment, and not just female, but empowerment in general. High school is the scariest part of people’s lives, and I loved that we used the monsters of Buffy as a metaphor for the monsters of life. And to not judge a book by its cover. That we are all capable of taking care of ourselves.
Well I think it’s the lines that have come now – like I love it when people tweet me “What would Buffy Do” or WWBD, or also “She saved the world, a LOT.”
