Actress wins mayor’s gratitude
Ms Hannigan appears in When Harry Met Sally Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Alyson Hannigan made a friend of London mayor Ken Livingstone on Tuesday when she praised the city’s transport system. At a press launch for the mayor’s annual cut-price ticket promotion for the West End, Ms Hannigan remarked how easy it was to get around.
"Oh, thank you," said Mr Livingstone, whose pro-public transport policy has not found favour with everyone.
"You can come back every week," he added with a smile.
Ms Hannigan and comedian Lee Evans, who are both starring in West End productions, were helping launch the third annual Get Into London Theatre promotion.
Tickets to more than 70 shows, including Bombay Dreams and Chicago, are being reduced until 28 March.
Ms Hannigan, who is starring in the stage version of When Harry Met Sally at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, said she had always wanted to act in the West End.
"The theatres here are beautiful. I feel like I’m in a masterpiece just standing on that stage - it is just beyond words."
