Alyson Hannigan Before Willow

Alyson Hannigan, Super Witch

In 1997, Alyson Hannigan got her biggest break yet. Joss Whedon was looking for an actress to play Willow Rosenberg on his new show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and decided on Alyson Hannigan. Willow Rosenburg, Buffy's originally geeky, awkward computer hacking buddy, was on the show the entire seven years it ran. By season seven, Hannigan's character of Willow had gone from a super-geek to a super-wicca who tried to end the world one year, and saved it the next.
