Negative Space Lesson

I must say: I find something a little odd and a little beautiful in the fact that a single day after the announcement of the death of Andy Hallet — the 33-year-old actor who played Lorne on Angel and who managed to a grow a fairly one-note character into a beloved, recurring character — that it would also be announced that Alyson Hannigan — who played Willow on Buffy, from which Angel spun off — had her baby. The baby’s father, of course, is Alexis Denisof, who himself appeared in major roles on both Buffy and Angel. Joss Whedon himself couldn’t have written a better encapsulation of the human life cycle.
