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.

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.

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.
Michelle Stafford spent about a minute with Sarah Michelle Gellar onscreen in Episode 3 of RINGER. Her character’s name is Peggy Lewis. Peggy has two children, Wally (whose age we don’t know) and Becca (who is in the eighth grade). Her husband’s name is Jack and he works for Deltona and Avercamp. Peggy ran into Shivette (Bridget being Siobhan) in the elevator of the building housing the law firm of Pierce, Zimmerman, & McDonald. Peggy had been shopping at FAO Schwarz. She is utterly amazed that Siobhan suggested they get together for lunch.

Stafford accurately described her character to TV Guide as “really nosy and very much in your face — one of those me, me, me types who talks a mile a minute”.
I really want to see more of this character. There is no indication yet if she is going to be a regular on the show. Stafford’s first TV role was in a soap opera aimed at teens that lasted only 6 episodes on FOX in 1990. It was called TRIBES, and it was apparently sort of a precursor to SWANS CROSSING, which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and aired some two years later. Episodes 1 through 4 of TRIBES are available on YouTube.
