Han­ni­gan (above), who played Lily Aldrin on the hit Amer­i­can sit­com How I Met Your Mother, says that the cli­max of the show was like a slap in the face for its ar­dent fans..

The show went on for nine sea­sons from 2005 to 2014. The 43-year-old ac­tor says that the hour­long fi­nale was cut down sig­nif­i­cantly dur­ing the edit­ing process, re­sult­ing in the abrupt end­ing, re­ported Dig­i­tal Spy.

“It seemed too quick. Ob­vi­ously it was a tear­jerker, but with all the stuff that got cut out it was too fast... The au­di­ence needed time to process the in­for­ma­tion, in­stead of hav­ing it slap them in the face,” says Alyson.

The ac­tor also be­lieves that Bar­ney (Neil Patrick Har­ris) and Robin (Co­bie Smul­ders) should not have got­ten mar­ried in the show. “I liked Bar­ney and Robin. But in my heart, I al­ways wanted her with Ted (Josh Rad­nor). I just feel (Bar­ney and Robin) shouldn’t have got­ten mar­ried,” she says.
