"IGN TV: Fans have wanted to see you back on TV again for quite a while. What was it about Ringer that drew you in?
Sarah Michelle Gellar: Celebrity Rehab wouldn't have me! Real Housewives didn't want me. They said I was the most boring housewife in the history of Housewives. [Real Housewives' executive producer] Andy Cohen denied me and said no. So I thought okay, so I can't be on Celebrity Rehab, I can't be on Real Housewives… I know!
It was about waiting for the right script. When you have a show like Buffy, you can't just do anything afterwards. It has to be something that speaks to not just me, but to the audience that was so incredibly loyal to me and that wanted to be challenged – that wanted something different, that wanted to be kept on the edge of their seats. And this is the first thing I read where I really thought, "This works for everybody."
