Buffy besties! Sarah Michelle Gellar wished her former Buffy the Vampire Slayer costar David Boreanaz a happy 47th birthday on Monday, May 16, in an adorable Instagram post almost 13 years after the series wrapped.

The actress, 39, shared a collage of three photos from their days playing love interests on set, with Gellar starring as Buffy Summers and Boreanaz as the cursed vampire Angel. In one picture, their faces are almost touching as they both hold swords. In the other two snaps, the on-screen couple holds hand as they walk through the snow.

“When you hear it’s someone’s birthday, and you realize how long you have known them #happybirthday David,” Gellar wrote. “Immortality looks good on you #davidboreanaz.”

The former costars seem to still have a lot of love for each other. Last year, the Bones actor wished Gellar a happy birthday in a cute exchange and she responded, “Always my #angel.”

Back in 2014, Gellar said she has been friends with the actor ever since the show first started filming in 1997. “There’s a connection that David and I will always have and we’ve always remained in touch, but what was so much fun this year was we were working on the same lot, so when I had a break I would walk over and watch them tape a show or try to steal food from Bones catering because they had way better catering than we did,” she joked in an interview with Parade.com of filming The Crazy Ones. “And David knows I’m purely motivated by food!”
