Exclusive: 90210 Snags Buffy Alum Sarah Hagan

Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Sarah Hagan (she played Potential Slayer Amanda during the show’s final season) has booked a recurring role on 90210, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

Hagan will play Alana, one of Naomi’s new sorority sisters at California University. The character is described as a born leader who proudly flaunts her extensive vocabulary and book smarts.

The actress — fondly remembered by Freaks and Geeks fans as Linda Cardellini’s straight arrow BFF Millie  — joins a 90210 guest cast that also includes Justin Deeley as a love interest for Naomi and CSI: Miami‘s Megalyn Echikunwoke as Naomi’s CU nemesis.

90210 kicks off its fourth season on Tuesday, Sept. 13.

    Ha, she grew up alright!

  2. John says:

    I like her! I’ve enjoyed seeing her pop up in guest spots too, like her episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

    Ack! I grew up doing theatre with her in Houston. Always glad to see her get high profile work but also a little jealous.

  4. Stephanie says:

    Don’t be jealous. Good Karma can always happen to people who know each other. And on another note, she was one of my fave potential slayers, so yay!

  5. Julie says:

    MILLIE! I loved her on F&G.

  6. Jen H says:

    She will always be Millie to me. Her part of Buffy was meh and in a season with a bunch of other potentials that made me mad. But she was great on F&G!

  7. Shelley says:

    Hee hee. “Slater?” How does she slate them? Come on! You’ve had no typos in the many years I’ve been reading your column (here, the place before, and at the other place), it’s fun to see a snafu slip through. :)

  8. Sadia says:

    …a love interest for Naomi? Um, WHAT? What about Max?! And their baby?!

  9. Robyn says:

    MILLIE! Yes!

  10. Carrie says:

    I liked her on “Buffy”, but she was hilarious on “Freaks and Geeks”!

  11. Tim says:

    So how many GUEST STARS do they hv now? 15? 20?

  12. Lillian says:

    Amusing that she’s referred to as a “Buffy alum”, but then Ausiello felt the need to remind us which Buffy character she played.

  13. Jason S. says:

    JEsus is just alright with me! Jesus is just all right oh yeah!!!

  14. bri says:

    ehh i was expecting an actual “buffy alum”. good way to get hits i guess.

  15. REA says:

    Buffy the Vampire Slater?

  16. J. says:

    Love Sarah Hagan. Don’t so much love 90210 though. But props to her for snagging a plum role on primetime nonetheless.
