Biography


She is the shy computer nerd in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” first six seasons run from the year 1997 to 2002. Though, her role was later changed into the lovely redhead witch who uses her magic to alter the world. The woman behind the cast Willow Rosenberg is none other than Alyson Hannigan. Born under the name Alyson Lee Hannigan, she is an actress with somewhat unusual beauty and exceptional acting style. Unlike Willow she didn't need magic to make herself famous.

Starting as early as four years old, she signed contracts with famous companies such as McDonalds, Six Flags and Oreos to appear in their TV commercials. Hannigan who was born on March 24, 1974 in Washington D.C. might not be so lucky that her parents, Al, a truck driver and Emilie, a real estate agent decided to get a divorce when she was only two years old. The episode, however, didn't stop her of becoming a junior actress. Her first debut on silver screen would be on “My Step Mother Is an Alien” (1988) playing the role of Dan Aykord's daughter. Though she kept adding a constant record on her movie list, her name was never heard as loud as when she appeared in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”. Her character as Willow might only be a sidekick, but it did granted her prestigious nominations of 'Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series' to capture Saturn Award consecutively in 2001 and 2002 and finally came out as the winner in 2003. In addition to that her name also was listed as the nominee of TV Guide Award (2001), Golden Satellite Award (2003) and Teen Choice Award in 2000 and 2003.
