Actress Allison Mack was born July 29, 1982 in Preez, Germany. Her father, opera singer Jonathan Mack, was performing with a local company, and Allison spent her first two years there. Who knew that this rather uneventful beginning would lead to a starring role in the new hit show Smallville. Smallville involves the life of Clark Kent (soon to realize he is the famed Superman) as a teenager.
She plays Chloe Sullivan, one of Clark's good friends. The show airs on Tuesday nights at 9pET/PT on The WB. After moving home to Southern California, Allison began her career at the age of four, doing commercials and print work. When she was seven she began taking acting classes at The Young Actors Space and soon started working theatrically.
She has starred in many prestigious movies for television, working with such highly repsected actors as Sissy Spacek and Aiden Quinn in HBO's A Private Matter; Peter Coyoteand Jill Eichenberry in Living A Lie; Mary Tyler Moore in The Care and Handling of Roses; and with Dolly Parton in Unlikely Angel.
She also recently was seen on the Showtime Movie, My Horrible Year, also starring Eric Stoltz (in his directorial debut), and Mimi Rogers. Allison has been seen on the big screen in Camp Nowhere, and had a fun time working on the Disney video feature Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.
