1 Sarah Michelle Gellar Wants To Create A Better Working Environment.

What has changed for Sarah Michelle Gellar this time? She wants to create safer sets than those she experienced growing up on sets. She also wants to be valued for the discipline that sometimes earned her the “difficult” layer when she was younger.

“It’s not about finding my voice,” she says. “It’s about learning how to use it … and using it in the right way.”

Joss Whedon, the showrunner on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, has been criticized for creating a toxic environment. Gellar won’t talk about it, unlike her co-stars “I’ll never tell my full story because I don’t get anything out of it. I’ve said all I’m going to say because nobody wins. Everybody loses,” she has said.

She has taken her producer credit on Wolf Pack seriously. “I hope that I’ve set up an infrastructure, a safety net for these actors that I didn’t have,”. “My generation just didn’t have that.”
