Biography

Already an industry veteran when Hollywood finally took notice, versatile Canadian actress Alison Pill amassed an impressive list of television, film and theatrical roles which jettisoned her to the top list of in-demand actors of her generation. Known initially as the introspective, earthy and baby-faced rebel in a host of television movies like "Baby" (TNT, 2000), "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows" (ABC, 2001), "Midwives" (Lifetime, 2001) and "What Girls Learn" (Showtime, 2001), Pill churned out memorable turns in feature films "Pieces of April" (2003), and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" (2004), as well as became a theatre force when she earned a Tony Award nomination for her Broadway debut in "The Lieutenant of Inishmore." Pill gained a wider following after her work on the controversial television series "The Book of Daniel" (NBC, 2006) and in feature films like "Dan in Real Life" (2007). After garnering critical raves for her skilled portrayal of Anne Kronenberg in the Oscar-winning biopic "Milk" (2008), she continued amassing accolades for her work on the dark HBO series "In Treatment" (2008- ) and landed choice placement in the miniseries "The Pillars of the Earth" (Starz, 2010), and teen comedy "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (2010), proving the actress was a powerhouse, able to excel in all genres of film and television projects.
