Sarah Michelle Gellar battles coronavirus pandemic Buffy-style after finding a giant stake
Mr. Pointy, is that you?
Living in this time of social distancing because of the coronavirus pandemic means being prepared for all eventualities in whatever way you can, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar means business. On Tuesday, the actress shared a photo on Instagram in which she's holding a piece of wood that's the shape of a stake (the slayer's weapon of choice when it comes to vampires) — only this one's enormous. "Hmmmm........ found this on my walk today," Gellar captioned the photo of her holding it in a standard slayer-about-to-dust-a-vamp pose. It might not be quite as big as the one Faith used to kill Kakistos back in season 3, but points for effort, SMG!
Gellar starred as the eponymous slayer in the WB (later UPN) series about the one girl in all the world (a chosen one, if you will) who wields the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness from 1997 to 2003. Next up she's set to appear in the limited series Sometimes I Lie, based on the best-selling book of the same name.
On Thursday, J. August Richards who portrayed Charles Gunn on Buffy spin-off Angel got in on the fighting fun too. The actor who stars in NBC's Council of Dads (premiering Tuesday, March 24) posted a response to Gellar's Instagram. His pic sees Richards posing with the axe that Gunn often wielded, slung over his shoulder. The actor captioned the pic: "Found mine too!! Let's ride..." Coronavirus better watch out, with these two demon fighters armed and ready to go.
