The 'Euphoria' star has been given Gellar's blessing

Sarah Michelle Gellar has said she would “vote Zendaya” to star in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot.

Katz recently interviewed Gellar for his new book Into Every Generation A Slayer Is Born: How Buffy Staked Our Hearts.

The official synopsis obtained by Bloody Disgusting reads: “Evan Ross Katz explores the show’s cultural relevance through a book that is part oral history, part celebration, and part memoir of a personal fandom that has universal resonance still, decades later.”

Meanwhile, Buffy star Charisma Carpenter has responded to Joss Whedon after he discussed allegations of misconduct against him in a recent interview.

Speaking about Carpenter in an interview with Vulture, Whedon said: “Most of my experiences with Charisma were delightful and charming. She struggled sometimes with her lines, but nobody could hit a punch line harder than her. I did not call her fat.”

Following the interview, Carpenter released a statement on social media calling the Buffy creator a “tyrannical narcissistic boss”, while supporting Justice League actor Ray Fisher who has also accused Whedon of “problematic behaviour”.

In the post, Carpenter wrote: “#IStandWithRayFisher. The ‘malevolent force’ and ‘bad actor in both senses’ who poisoned my feeble mind with trendy buzzwords and corrupt ideas about my experiences with a former tyrannical narcissistic boss who is still unable to be accountable and just apologise.”
