AKA Alison Marion Lohman
Birthplace: Palm Springs, CA
Race or Ethnicity: White
Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Matchstick Men
Lohman's first significant role came at the age of nine, when she played the youngest von Trapp daughter in a College of the Desert production of The Sound of Music. At 12, she starred in stage productions of Annie, and through her teens she appeared in a dozen more plays. On TV, she has been in three series, all very quickly cancelled. She was a semi-regular on Safe Harbor, a full-fledged cast member on Tucker, and she was the only memorable thing about Pasadena.
In her first film, 1988's Kraa! The Sea Monster, she played a psychic soldier in spandex. With her baby-faced looks, she played teenagers well into her 20s, in White Oleander and Matchstick Men. In Tim Burton's Big Fish she played the young Jessica Lange. She shaved her head to play a chemotherapy patient in Dragonfly, but her scenes were cut from the film.
In 2005, she voiced the title character on a reissue of the classic Japanese cartoon Nausicaa, saying she took the role because she wanted to endorse the film's strong message of environmental protection.
