Alyson Hannigan has weighed in on an ongoing debate between fans of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” over whether Buffy should have chosen to be with Spike or Angel. 

Rather than choosing between the show’s two main love interests, Hannigan instead suggested that Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character should have dated her best friend, Willow.

Hannigan, 46, starred as Willow on the teen horror series, which ran from 1997 to 2003.

The actress made the interesting suggestion in reply to a tweet from voting rights activist, Stacey Abrams.

Many “Buffy” fans loved the idea of the show’s biggest female characters embarking on a romantic relationship together.

However, Hannigan explained the reason why she believes the idea was never explored.

Although Hannigan recalled discussing the possible storyline with Anthony Head (who played Giles) and husband Alexis Denisof (who starred as Wesley), the group agreed that the romance would have ruined “the strong friendship” between Buffy and Willow.


Then it was time for David Boreanaz, who played Angel on the series, to share his thoughts with The Wrap.

“All I’ll say is this, man: True love is first love and first love is true love. Drop the mic. End of story. I don’t think we need to continue. I mean, it’s pretty simple, right?”

He added, “Let’s think about that for really a second. Your first love is your true love, your true love is your first love. End of story. All due respect Stacey Abrams, I disagree. But you know, hey, you’re coming from the character’s mouth here. I think I’ll be the final word on it.”
