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:

Acker studied ballet, modern dance and jazz dance for 13 years before moving onto acting. She underwent knee surgery while in high school, thus ending her ballet career. She began to study acting in her sophomore year. A 1995 graduate of Lake Highlands High School, she enrolled at Southern Methodist University to take advantage of that school's renowned theatrical program. See more »
