WARNING POSSIBLE SPOILER
Hannigan taking time out from her West End play
The Haymarket Theatre has announced that Alyson Hannigan will not appear in her West End play, When Harry Met Sally between 17th March and 3rd April.
No official reason has been given for the lead actresses absence from the newly launched play but rumours are that the absence is possibly due to Hannigan reprising her role of Willow to appear in the final ever episode of Angel which has yet to to be filmed.
Hannigan’s super witch character Willow, appeared in Buffy for seven seasons and also popped up in episodes of Angel in crossover storylines. Of course, Hannigan still has a stake in the Angel show as her husband, Alexis Denisof is a regular cast member. Before the shows cancelation was announced, Denisof publically said that he would love to appear alongside his wife in the series and with time running out, this could be the last opportunity.
Other possible players in the finale include Eliza Dushku who this week spoke out in support of the cast and crew of the show she appeared in as Faith, the rogue vampire slayer. Although she is currently starring in her own show, Tru Calling, she will be free to film scenes for Angel’s final ever episode.
We will keep you posted on this news story.
