(LOS ANGELES) -- Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to TV on Tuesday night in a new CW drama.
In Ringer, Gellar plays a woman who tries to protect herself after witnessing a murder by assuming the identity of her twin sister. However, she also assumes the problems of her sister in the process.
Gellar says she took the role with Buffy fans in mind. She says, "I think as an actor, sure you want to stretch and do different things, but I think it's also our job to think about who our fans are and what they want to see too, because let's be honest, ultimately that's why we do it."
Ringer debuts Tuesday night at 9 p.m. Eastern time, following the fourth-season premiere of 90210.
