Alert the Scooby Gang: it's Sarah Michelle Gellar's birthday!

Today the famed Buffy star turns 35 years old. While many know her from CW's drama Ringer, SMG has legions of fans from nearly 30 years of working in the entertainment biz.

But it was her role as a vampire slayer from 1997 to 2003 that really earned her a place in our hearts…

"[Buffy] was so fulfilling for me in every way and everything I do now is the cherry on top," she told Entertainment Weekly last year. "I don't feel the pressure to do this, or have to do this or go here because I feel like I've already won."

She's also winning when it comes to her personal life. Gellar and hubby Freddie Prinze Jr. have been happily married since 2002, and they're the proud parents of 2-year-old daughter Charlotte Grace.
