Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar

After meeting on the set of 1997’s teen thriller “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” the careers of Sarah Michelle Gellar and husband Freddie Prinze Jr. (whom she married in 2002) have gone in different directions. She spent seven seasons as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” starred in the edgy “Cruel Intentions" and the successful horror film “The Grudge,” and now plays not one but two characters on the CW’s freshman series “The Ringer” (though a second season isn’t looking likely). Prinze, meanwhile, landed roles in the “Scooby-Doo” franchise (alongside his wife), as well as small parts on big shows like “Friends” and “Boston Legal" that never really led anywhere. He’s now a producer and director with the WWE.
