Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Willow is #5 in Examiner.com’s TV’s Top 10 sidekicks

Sunday 28 June 2009, by Webmaster

5 - Willow Rosenberg (“Buffy...the Vampire Slayer”)

Willow, played by Allison Hannigan, was the nerdy best friend to slayer Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar). Willow was good with computers, and research. She was one of the most caring characters on the show, but for the first three seasons was a character who didn’t come into her own as much. It was in the fourth season that things began to get more interesting for Willow. She had started practicing witchcraft in high school (for which she was nearly burned at the stake...or giant pencil), and in college she dove deeper into that. She discovered she was a lesbian when she met Tara, played by Amber Benson. Willow got deeper when she was given an addiction to magic, and she nearly destroyed the world after Tara is shot and killed. She was always there to aid Buffy, and even helped her save the world in the finale. The best thing about Willow is her wit. She’s got this innocent vibe to her, always believing in so much good, when Buffy is dealing with so much death. Willow became a powerfully ally, and she became who she is on her own, all while helping her best friend.
