Sarah Michelle Gellar is set to join the cast of the second season of “Star Wars: Rebels.”
Known best as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, both of Gellar’s parents were Jews, but she was raised secular. She has not had any hits since Buffy went off the air in 2003. Since then she had two one television series – one drama and one sitcom – both of which only lasted for one season.
