Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) in a red wig for Can’t See the Fae-rest (LOST GIRL episode 2.11)
Peggy Shippen Arnold with one of the Arnold’s five children
Ksenia Solo will join the cast of AMC’s TURN for the show’s second season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will play Peggy Shippen, a rich and politically active young woman from a pro-British family in 18th century Philadelphia (the youngest of four daughters). The real Peggy Shippen married Benedict Arnold (played by Owain Yeoman) on 8 April 1779. (Season 1 of TURN was set in 1778.) She followed her husband to New York in 1780 after his counter-revolutionary activity was revealed. Filmed in and around Richmond, Virginia, Season 2 will have 10 episodes and should premiere sometime in April 2015.
Vanessa Matsui will make her third appearance on LOST GIRL as the oracle Cassie in Episode 5.5. No other details are yet available about that episode.
The 1955 Jaguar Roadster, subject of the wager in CRUEL INTENTIONS
Archie's Morgan +8 in SUBURBAN GIRL
The two most interesting vehicles in Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s films have to be the 1956 Jaguar Roadster in CRUEL INTENTIONS, and the Morgan +8 in SUBURBAN GIRL. Gellar drove neither of these. They are both convertibles, and the latter can no longer be purchased in the United States. In I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, the car involved in the hit-run accident was a 1996 BMW 328i with a sun roof, and Helen Shivers didn’t drive that one either.
The BMW convertible driven by Cindy Bandolini in HARVARD MAN
In THE RETURN, Gellar’s character, Joanna Mills, drove a 2005 Dodge Ram 4×4. In HARVARD MAN, Cindy Bandolini drove a 2000 BMW 3 series convertible.
The Rutledge Mercedes in SWANS CROSSING
The 05 Dodge Ram driven by Joanna Mills in THE RETURN
Gellar’s first starring role on television was as Sydney Rutledge in the short-lived teen soap SWANS CROSSING (1992). In that series, the Rutledge car was a Mercedes 560SL convertible from the late 1980’s.
Every time someone blogs about horror films, or does a list of things related to horror films, Sarah Michelle Gellar gets mentioned. The reason for this is that Gellar has done four excellent examples of that genre. The Grudge, The Grudge 2, Scream 2, and I Know What You Did Last Summer are all well worth watching. And I don’t like horror films.
But the best work Gellar has done on film is in The Air I Breathe, Suburban Girl, Cruel Intentions, and The Return (in that order). Cruel Intentions get mentioned a lot for the wrong reasons, and the other three don’t get talked about much.
Gellar has appeared in 23 films, 15 as an adult (13 if you don’t count cartoons). All of them are very watchable films except for SHE’S ALL THAT in which she had a cameo. I keep waiting to hear that she has signed onto the latest Martin Scorsese project, or something else of equivalent stature.
