Let’s face it, Sarah Michelle Gellar is the Queen of supernatural TV genre, due to her remarkable on the iconic show that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With that in mind, her eagerly anticipated return to the shows of that ilk comes with a great sense of excitement – and what’s even more exciting, is that we had the pleasure of speaking to her. The actress was in London promoting the launch of new Paramount+ series Wolf Pack, talking to us about the attraction to the show, and whether it came with a greater sense of consideration given the standards she has set for herself.
She also talks to us about Buffy, whether she ever watches it, and in fact whether it ever became normal seeing herself on the telly. Meanwhile, we also spoke to her co-star, the Brazilian Rodrigo Santoro, as he talks about collaborating with Gellar on the show, and talks to us about his role. And of course we can’t meet a Brazilian and not speak about football, so we even had a brief chat about the late Pele, and what he means to that nation. Be sure to watch both interviews in their entirety below.

Based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom, WOLF PACK follows a teenage boy and girl whose lives are changed forever when a California wildfire awakens a terrifying supernatural creature and drives it to attack a highway traffic jam beneath the burning hills. Wounded in the chaos, the boy and girl are inexplicably drawn to each other and to two other teenagers who were adopted sixteen years earlier by a park ranger after another mysterious wildfire. As the full moon rises, all four teens come together to unravel the secret that connects them – the bite and blood of a werewolf.
Wolf Pack launches exclusively on Paramount+ UK from January 27th
