Trivia and Quotes

  • it's just impossible not to love Aly!

    well, for sure the first thing that comes in mind: she was brilliant as Willow in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" -- she made me smile or cry in almost every her scene, and the way she portrayed her character... it's hard to believe that we could have some other Willow!

    but Willow is not the only reason to love Alyson Hannigan: she is the cutie kid from "My Stepmother is an Alien", she is the crazy Michelle from "American Pie" thrilogy with the catchphrase "This one time, at the band she is hilarious Lily from "How I Met Your Mother", and she's so much more -- nice, cute, awesome person.

    sometimes you feel like you know her but then she surprises you with smth and you start admire her even more, though you think "more" is impossible! few days ago I watched "Beyond the City Limits" -- and the character Aly played there was SOOO not her. and I liked it SOOO much (even though the movie didn't impress me). I wish we had the opportunity to see her on screen more often.moreless
  • Amazing.

    I usually don't find many different actresses that funny. In fact most actresses I claim of being "funny" really are more "goofy" than "funny". And I didn't like Alyson's character for two episodes on my previous favorite show, That '70s Show, but as I have continued to watch How I Met Your Mother, my eyes have been opened. Alyson Hannigan is an amazing actress, funny too, and don't forget beautiful. She does have that "goofiness" attribute as well, but in a definite good way. I'm sorry I ever doubted her just because of her character as Sally the police officer in two episodes of That '70s Show.moreless
