It’s rare that an actor has two successful television shows, let alone a successful film series outside of that. As one of the stars of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, How I Met Your Mother, and the American Pie film series Alyson Hannigan has just that. Now she’s coming to Oz Comic-Con Melbourne in July for her first Australian convention visit.
Alyson shot to stardom as Buffy’s best friend Willow in Buffy, as well as winning over 90’s teens in her role as one-time-at-band-camp’s Michelle in the American Pie series. Most recently she’s beem one half of Marshmallow and Lilypad, when she starred as Lily Aldrin in all nine seasons of How I Met Your Mother.
Joining Alyson is another Buffy alumni, Tom Lenk, who portrayed trio member Andrew Wells in season six. Tom has also appeared in Transformers and had guest roles on How I Met Your Mother, Bones and Six Feet Under, as well as many more.
Alyson and Tom join an all star line up of guests including Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Game of Thrones), Shannon Purser (Stranger Things), Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks), Aly Michalka, Robert Buckley and Rahul Kohli (iZombie), Daniel Gillies (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals), Zach McGowan (The 100, Black Sails), Elden Henson (The Hunger Games, The Mighty Ducks), DJ Qualls (Supernatural) and Bill Farmer (the voice of Goofy) at Oz Comic-Con. Guests will be taking part in professional photograph and autograph opportunities across the weekend, as well as answering fans’ burning questions in exclusive question and answer panels.
Oz Comic-Con Melbourne will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on July 1-2, and tickets are now on sale.
