Personal Quote:

[She was asked in a May 6, 2003 interview by Fred Topel how she developed the "Willow voice"] I sort of got her voice when I was auditioning. I was sitting in the parking lot looking at the material, and I didn't have it, I didn't have it. Then there was one particular line which, from there on, I was like, "Okay, I know how I want to play this character." See more »

Trivia:

Babysat for Bob Saget's children in her teens. Once went on vacation to Hawaii with his family. Two decades later, they co-starred together in How I Met Your Mother (2005), with Saget playing (the voice of) the older "Ted Mosby" and Hannigan playing younger Ted's best friend's fiancée. See more »
