'We have rules in place': Here's why Sarah Michelle Gellar won't allow daughter Charlotte, 13, to act
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar is best known for her role as Buffy Summers in cult television series 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'. With her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr, she also starred as Daphne Blake in a series of live-action 'Scooby-Doo' movies.
In the year 2014, Gellar took a break from the acting world to focus on building a family with her husband. Sarah is returning to supernatural television in the upcoming series 'Wolf Pack'. It's a long time coming for the actress, who became an icon for her role on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer.'
Gellar met husband Freddie Prinze Jr while they were filming the 1997 teen horror film 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'. The stars got married in 2002 and have been inseparable ever since - giving their fans a look into what others call happily ever after. Sarah and Freddie are parents of two beautiful children - Charlotte Grace Prinze and Rocky James Prinze. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gellar expressed her thoughts on her children wanting to take acting as a career.
Both the children have led a life out of the public eye and have even been missing from their parents' Instagrams too. Gellar confirmed that her daughter has shown the desire to be an actress, but as their mother, she definitely has set some rules that must be followed before they can go in front of the camera. "Well, we have rules in place. She can’t be in front of a camera until she graduates high school," Gellar said.
She also spoke about how her daughter finds it completely unfair considering the fact that Sarah was a child actress herself, "She says to me, 'That’s unfair. You were a child actor'", to which the actress answers, "Yes, I was. But I was not the child of two famous parents.”
Gellar allowed Charlotte to tag along on the sets of 'Wolf Pack' and 'Do Revenge' so she could get a feel of what it's like to work in the entertainment industry. Producers tried to convince Gellar to allow the teenager to appear in a cameo, but she was unmoved.
"I'll never stop her from being on a set," she said of the decision. "But she's just not going on camera while she's living under our roof. There'll be different expectations for her, so she needs to learn everything there is first."
