Alyson Hannigan Net Worth: Alyson Hannigan is an American actress who has a net worth of $40 million. She is best known for playing the roles of Willow Rosenberg in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003), Lily Aldrin on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother (2005–2014) and Michelle Flaherty in the American Pie film series (1999–2012).
Alyson Hannigan was born March 24, 1974 in Washington, D.C. Hannigan got her start in show business at a very young age, appearing in her first film—an instructional video for new parents called Active Parenting—before her first birthday. While still a toddler, Hannigan appeared in numerous print ads and developed a love for posing before the camera. At the age of four, she appeared in her first commercial for Duncan Hines, and she later appeared in national TV commercials for Oreos and McDonald's as well. Hannigan attended the Northside School of the Performing Arts in Atlanta, Georgia where she played clarinet in the band and participated in the soccer team.
At the age of 11, she and her mother moved to Los Angeles, California so she could pursue her budding acting career more seriously. In 1988, a 14-year-old Hannigan made her film debut in the sci-fi comedy My Stepmother is an Alien. Her breakthrough role came when she was cast on the long-running and enormously popular TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The show followed Buffy Summers (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar), a teenage girl with superpowers which allow her to fight off vampires and other demons. Hannigan played Willow Rosenberg, Buffy's quirky and complicated best friend, who is revealed to be a lesbian in later seasons. The show's creator, Joss Whedon, did not initially want to cast Hannigan in the role.
Alyson's major fortune and fame came thanks to her role in the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother which ran from 2005 to 2014. She was a main-role actor in the series and appeared in 2016 episodes. At her peak, Alyson and the other starring actors earned $225,000 per episode, roughly $5.4 million per season. That does not include syndication royalties.
Real Estate: In 2002, Alyson paid $1.96 million for a home in Santa Monica, California. She and her husband Alexis Denisof listed the home for sale in 2018 for $5.1 million.
In 2015 they bought a much larger home in Brentwood for $8 million which for some reason they sold a year later for $8.156 million. At that same time they paid $8 million for a three-acre compound in the hills of Encino.
