Today is the birthday of Kristy Swanson. Yes. The original Buffy.

 

Born in Mission Viejo, California, on this day in 1969, Swanson was also in Wes Craven's Deadly Friend, Pretty in Pink, and also some episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

She shares a birthday with another '90s sci-fi fantasy queen: Alyssa Milano.

 

Born on this day in 1972, Milano was on Charmed, duh.

BOTH of these women share a birthday with … Jake Gyllenhaal. Born in 1980 in Los Angeles, Gyllenhall has had a ton of breakthrough roles. But, like, mainly Donnie Darko.

 

And also, The Day After Tomorrow (2004).

 

Tomorrow: So. Many. Movie premieres.
