Personal Quote:

[3/17/03, on meeting Alyson Hannigan, whose Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) character "Willow" crossed over to take part on Angel (1999) for the season-4 episode, Angel: Orpheus (2003)] This is our first time actually meeting each other. She's pretty cool, so I'm hoping that Joss will maybe make me a witch or something, too. See more »

Trivia:

Wore her own glasses as "Fred" on Angel (1999). See more »
