THE GUIDING LIGHT
Sarah Michelle Gellar as a Flower Girl at Mindy and Brad's Wedding - 1985
Gellar was a flower girl at the wedding of Kurt Corday & Mindy Sue Lewis. The wedding storyline aired from 8 November to 15 November 1985.
Mindy (the bride) was played by Krista Tesreau. The actor playing Brad was Mark Lewis. Lewis married Mary Ellen Stuart in real life in 1988. They adopted a baby from China in 1999 and in 2005 were working together in the Theater Department at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. Krista Tesreau made regular appearances on THE GUIDING LIGHT as Mindy Lewis until the show was cancelled in 2009.
In the November, 1993 issue of Daytime TV Magazine, Gellar said, "The first thing I ever did on a soap was when I was eight years old on Guiding Light as a flower girl at Kurt and Mindy's wedding! I was on GL a couple more times after that, as well as Edge of Night, usually in wedding scenes. I guess I'm just a flower girl-type of girl!"
A Gellar bio attached to the playbill for WIDOW CLAIRE (she was Molly in the Horton Foote play in 1986) states that she also appeared in As the World Turns.
