Facts about Alyson Hannigan
Biography for Alyson HanniganAlyson Lee Hannigan-Denisof (born Mar. 24, 1974 (42 years ago)) is an American actress. She is best known for her roles as Lily Aldrin on the CBS sitcom How I met your mother (8 walls), Willow Rosenberg on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Michelle Flaherty-Levenstein in three American Pie films.
Early yearsHannigan was born in Washington, D.C., the daughter of Emilie Posner, a real estate agent, and Al Hannigan, a truck driver. Hannigan is Jewish on her mother's side, and also has Irish ancestry. Her parents divorced a year after her birth and she was raised mostly by her mother in Atlanta.
Although Hannigan had appeared in an industrial movie for "Active Parenting" as a baby, as well as starred in a commercial for the Duncan Hines cookie mix in 1978 (38 years ago), it was not until she moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1985 (31 years ago) that she formally began her acting career. Living with her mother and attending North Hollywood High School, she successfully auditioned for agents while visiting her father in Santa Barbara. After attending North Hollywood High School she attended California State University, Northridge.
CareerHannigan's first major movie role was in My Stepmother Is an Alien, a science fiction comedy released in 1988; one of her co-stars in the movie was actor Seth Green, who would later join her in the regular cast of Buffy as her on-screen boyfriend. Then in 1989 (27 years ago), her first regular role on a TV series came when she was cast in the short-lived ABC sitcom Free Spirit. Throughout most of the early-1990s, she appeared in commercials. In 1997 (19 years ago), Hannigan was cast to play Willow Rosenberg, Buffy's best friend, on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (replacing Riff Regan, who played Willow in the unaired 25-minute pilot). The show became a success, and Hannigan gained recognition, subsequently appearing in several notable movies aimed at teenage audiences, including American Pie, American Pie 2, Boys and Girls, and American Wedding. By the time Buffy had ended in 2003 (13 years ago), Hannigan was earning a $250,000 salary for each episode. She also had a guest spot on the Buffy spin-off, Angel, reprising her role of Willow in a few episodes (including most notably "Orpheus," during the fourth season of Angel and the seventh season of Buffy), but none after Buffy finished production.
