Icon and legend Sarah Michelle Gellar is about to make her return to the small screen.
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress will star in the upcoming thriller miniseries, Sometimes I Lie, which is based on Alice Feeney’s critically-acclaimed debut novel of the same name.
She will play Amber Reynolds, a woman who wakes up in hospital unable to move, speak or open her eyes, but is able to hear everyone around her. Each episode will flash between Amber in the hospital, her childhood and the events that led up to her being hospitalised.
Although she doesn’t remember what happened to her, she suspects her husband was responsible for putting her there.
According to Deadline, Gellar will also executive produce the series alongside Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Bros TV. Robin Swicord, who earned an Academy Award nomination for her work on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, will helm the adaptation.
This will be Gellar’s first TV series since the short-lived ABC comedy, The Crazy Ones, which starred the late Robin Williams. She also led another short-lived TV drama, Ringer, which was cancelled after one season. We’re still furious.
However, the Emmy Award winning star is best known for her seven year stint as the chosen one, Buffy Summers, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress.
She also starred in iconic films such as Cruel Intentions, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, Scooby Doo, Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, The Grudge and The Grudge 2.
