Flashback Friday: Sarah Michelle Gellar in a Dramatic Funerial Confrontation on ‘All My Children’ (VIDEO)
In this vintage Flashback Friday clip, a young Sarah Michelle Gellar holds her own against the queen of all soap stars, Susan Lucci!
Sarah Michelle plays Kendall, who goes head to head in a dramatic confrontation at a funeral with ultimate diva Erica Kane. SMG was just 15-years-old when she took on the role in 1993. Her character had a shocking secret — Kendall was in fact Erika’s daughter, born after Erika was raped on her 14th birthday. Kendall was originally a villain, and was often referred to as “the most terrible daughter on daytime.”
The character (now played by Alicia Minshew) has since reformed her ways — and Sarah Michelle has gone on to great success as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and with numerous movie roles. She’s made a return to TV this fall on the CW’s Ringer.
Of course, she’s not the only daytime star to go prime time! Many other stars got their star on soaps as well.
After 41 years, All My Children airs its final episode today, September 23, 2011.
