Tara and Alyson Hannigan's Willow clicked immediately, resulting in Willow discovering her interest in the same sex -- specifically, Tara. Tara and Willow went on to be a great representation of a same-sex relationship in a scripted drama, and they proved to be one of the best romantic couples in the series' seven-season history.
("I got so lost." "I found you." - says it all.) That's a credit as much to the writing as it is to Hannigan and Benson's undeniable chemistry. He was trying to create 2 people who just happened to be gay.
And he, like a baller, got online and talked to every person who reached out to him via Twitter or Facebook.
As a child Benson studied music and dance, performing in the Birmingham Children's Ballet as well as in local theater.
She also co-directed 2010 comedy, Drones with Buffy co-star Adam Busch.
