|Alyson Hannigan is
|Willow is one of Buffy's best friends, Xander is the other. Will has always been the sweet, smart, computer-literate one in
the group. She had a crush on Xander for awhile, but her first true love was Oz, musician and werewolf. Eventually, they
broke up after Oz cheated on her, as a werewolf, with a female werewolf. He left town, and a brokenhearted Willow turned
more to her study of witchcraft. She also found a close friend and then a lover in a fellow witch practitioner, Tara. Willow
has become very powerful, going well past Tara's abilities. Tara became very concerned with Willow's overuse of magic, with
good reason. Tragically, Tara was killed by a bullet meant for Buffy, right in front of Willow. This sent Willow over the
magical edge, and she went on a rampage, killing Tara's murderer horribly, and almost causing the end of the world. The
one who came through in the end was Xander. His love pulled his best friend out of the abyss, on the way back to
recovery. Willow has started regaining control over her power, and recently has started a relationship with Kennedy, one
of the potential slayers.
