Alexis Denisof and Alyson Hannigan
My family emigrated during the revolution. My grandfather was from outside of Moscow, and my grandmother, although some of her family were French, was from Odessa. They met as immigrants in New York in the early `20s. My mother`s family came over from Ireland generations ago. That`s where the silly name is from. But it`s not made up! You couldn`t think that one up. Mom says my father was torn between naming me Archibald and Reginald, and so I`m delighted he settled on naming me after my grandfather.
  • He and wife Alyson Hannigan are godparents to Joss Whedon's son Arden.
  • Was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy just before filming of the final season on Angel commenced. During the first episode, director Joss Whedon was careful to keep most of Alexis's shots on his right profile, as the left side of his face was fairly immobile at the time.
  • When he returned to America, he was too broke to afford his own place and he couldn't find any work. Luckily, Mary Steenburgen, whom he had met and befriended while making Noah's Ark (1999) (TV) took him in, and he lived with Mary and her husband, Ted Danson, for a year. "Ted and Mary are my saviors," he has said. "I definitely wouldn't have made it without their psychological and emotional support."
  • Attended the exclusive St. Paul's boarding school in New Hampshire.
  • He attended a boarding school in New Hampshire at the age of 13.
