Biography

Alison Lohman made her first impression on Hollywood thanks to bad parents - an incarcerated murderer mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) who leaves her to foster care in "White Oleander" (2003), and a con man (Nicolas Cage) who doesn't even know he has a daughter in "Matchstick Men" (2003). The actress played teenagers well into her twenties, scoring a family hit with "Flicka" (2006), before segueing into adult roles in Susanna Bier's "Things We Lost in the Fire" (2007) and Sam Raimi's "Drag Me to Hell" (2009), where Lohman's assertive performances made all the more impact when paired with her youthful, down-to-earth appeal.

.

Lohman on what scares her the most: "Interviews. Talking about myself. I remember watching young actresses being interviewed on TV and thinking, Thank God, I don't have to do that. And now they want me to do "The Tonight Show" and I'm freaking out. Jay Leno, he's normal, right?" - from Interview magazine, November 2002
