Sara Geller has another look.

to night, and forgot that it
was actually shown on the
air."
Even today, she admits,
. it still surprises her when
she is recognized by fans.
"Just the other day I
went to see 'Forbidden
Broadway,' an off-
Broadway play, and while
one of •the actors was
singing, he noticed me and
said, 'Hi Kendall,' right in
the middle of the song.
Anti-Semitism is not
something Miss Gellar has
faced. Perhaps, she
guessed, since she lives in
New York and works in an
industry where there are
many Jews, her heritage
has never been an issue.
Although she does not
consider herself a religious
person, she has grown up
in a very traditional
Jewish home. "I go to tem-
ple on the High Holidays
and my mom lights the
candles every Friday
night," she said. "She will
be remarrying this year
and my soon-to-be stepfa-
ther is also religious."
While she never had a
bat mitzvah, Miss Gellar
says she spent her 13th
year attending a bevy of
bar and bat mitzvah par-•
ties.
Being able to balance
school and work has not
been a problem. She
attends a private profes-
sional school in
Manhattan. "I went to
Columbia Prep and trans-
ferred to Professional
Children's School where I
am able to both work and
go to school," she said. She
is tutored on the days that
she is on the set. "Lindsay
Price, who plays An Li on
the show, attends. the
same school and is my best
friend."
Acting on the soap, Miss
Gellar said, will be a boost

to her career, as she is
able to study her craft on a
daily basis. Playing Erica's
daughter, she is involved
in one of the major story-
lines, and some weeks
Miss Gellar works 12
hours a day, Monday
through Friday.
The cast may do camera
blocking, rehearse and
tape one entire show all in
a day. "We have to report
to work at .7 in the morn-
ing and often don't go
home until 7 at night. But
it's a terrific learning expe-
rience, and the people I
work with are real pros."
Is she at all like her
character? "Not really,"
she replied. "Kendall is
very angry and has a lot of
resentment toward her
mother. Although we are
both determined people,
she is much more negative
than I am. But I like her
— she's tough."

"Just the other
day I went to see
`Forbidden
Broadway,'
an off-Broadway
play, and while
one of the actors
was singing,
he noticed me
and said,
`Hi Kendall.' "

BUY A CASE OF FOOD!

Fact is, more Americans
may die by the fork than by
any other weapon. That's
because so many of them
use it irresponsibly. Like
to fill up on high-fat, high-
cholesterol foods. Foods
that can load the blood with
cholesterol, which can build
up plaque in their arteries,
increasing their risk of
heart attacks and threaten-
ing their lives. So next time
you pick up a fork, remem-
ber to handle it as you
would any other weapon.
For self-defense, not
self-destruction.

Happy with her life just
the way it is, Miss Gellar's
goals are just to keep on
performing. The world of
ivy-covered Gothic
libraries and student-filled
quadrangles are not in her
near-future plans.
"Although I get good
grades and want to go to
college eventually, I'm not
a school person and if I
have to defer college
because of work, I will,"
said Miss Gellar, who will
be in the 11th grade in the
fall. "Even though I know I
don't need a college degree
to act, I wouldn't feel right
if I didn't continue with
my education. It just may
take a while.
"For now, I want to keep
working and being happy.
Whether I'm in daytime,
nighttime or theater, I just
want to be working — and
hopefully well." ❑
