Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan has had a widely varied career, captivating audiences in both television and film.

Hannigan stars on the hit CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother. The series centers on a group of best friends in their 20s who are living in New York and searching for love. How I Met Your Mother was nominated for a 2009 Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. Hannigan also starred on Buffy the Vampire Slayer for seven seasons.

Hannigan previously starred in the first three installments of the American Pie series. All three films rank among the top-grossing films ever produced worldwide, with more than $1 billion in revenue.

Hannigan's other big-screen credits include Aaron Seltzer's Date Movie, opposite Fred Willard and Jennifer Coolidge. Spoofing other romantic comedies, the film tells the story of hopeless romantic Julia Jones (Hannigan), who has finally met the man of her dreams, the very British Grant Funckyerdoder (Adam Campbell). However, before they can have their Big Fat Greek Wedding, they will have to Meet the Parents, coordinate with The Wedding Planner and contend with Grant's friend Andy, a spectacularly beautiful woman who wants to put an end to her Best Friend's Wedding.

Hannigan made her breakthrough performance at the age of 13 in Richard Benjamin's My Stepmother Is an Alien, opposite Dan Aykroyd and Kim Basinger.
