(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Kristine Sutherland, best known to audiences as Sarah Michelle Gellar’s clueless mum Joyce Summers on The WB/UPN hit “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1997-2003), has been cast in the recurring role of a new Dean at Llanview University, and will factor into at least one of the soap’s upcoming fall storylines. 

Look for the actress to first air on Friday, September 17th when Langston puts her plan to get Ford fired from his teaching job at LU in motion.  And, with so many characters hanging around the campus in the coming months, it is likely not the last we will being seeing of the new Dean either.

In addition to “Buffy,” Sutherland also appeared in the 1989 film “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” along with guest spots on “Remington Steele,” “Easy Street,” and “Providence.”
