“It happened.” It FINALLY happened!
Miranda took to Twitter to share a picture of the duo with the caption, “It happened.”

The “Hamilton” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” stars had spent much of the last two months tweeting GIFs of themselves at each other.
The saga began when Gellar tweeted a photo of herself signing the wall at the Richard Rogers Theatre in New York, where “Hamilton” is playing, on Feb. 9. “I got to sign @HamiltonMusical wall!!@JMunozActor ty for being so kind to my daughter (she wants to know when we are seeing the show again),” Gellar wrote.
Miranda responded to the tweet with the heart-eyes emoji, prompting the “Buffy” alum to write “Ok I’m done. I’ve accomplished all I need to in life. I’ve been noticed by @Lin_Manuel.”
They spent the next few days trading GIFs of themselves, expressing excitement at having been noticed by each other. On Feb. 10, Gellar tweeted “oh Lin stop it (don’t stop).”
Their meeting was teased earlier this week when Gellar tweeted that she was going to attend the premiere of the award-winning musical — and her tweet didn’t go unnoticed.
