In addition to her role in Buffy, Gellar has starred in, among others, Scream 2, in which she played a sorority girl who was flung off a balcony by the 'Ghostfaced Killer', and I Know What You Did Last Summer, as Beauty Queen Helen Green, victim of a psychopathic Fisherman. Both movies, written by Kevin Williamson of "Dawson's Creek" fame, gave Gellar the opportunity to act alongside big names such as Neve Campbell and Jennifer Love-Hewitt.
