“Yes, little known fact”, Sarah Michelle Gellar said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on January 31, “The legend Dolly Parton was a producer.”
Dolly’s support, while integral to the show’s origins, wasn’t exactly practical.
“We never saw her,” Sarah told the host Jimmy Fallon. “In the beginning, we got Christmas presents with our names on them, and I was like, ‘She doesn’t know who I am.'”
How wrong would you be Sarah Michelle Gellar!
“One day someone asked her about it and she complimented the show and my performance,” Sarah gushed. “I thought, ‘Oh, I can die now. Dolly Parton knows who I am and thinks I’m good.’”
