A rising star on stage and screen, Alison Pill was most recently seen in the off-Broadway world premiere of Neil LaBute’s reasons to be pretty, directed by Terry Kinney. She had previously starred in the same playwright’s The Distance from Here, in its U.S. premiere, for which she shared the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble.
Her Broadway debut in The Lieutenant of Inishmore brought her a Tony Award nomination, and she starred last season on Broadway in Mauritius. Off-Broadway, she was a Lucille Lortel Award nominee for both On the Mountain and Blackbird (opposite Jeff Daniels), and starred in None of the Above.
Ms. Pill’s film work includes Peter Hedges’ Dan in Real Life (opposite Steve Carell) and Pieces of April (opposite Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson); Thomas Vinterberg’s Dear Wendy (opposite Jamie Bell); and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (opposite Lindsay Lohan).
Television audiences have seen the Toronto native in the series The Book of Daniel; and Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows (as the young Lorna Luft, directed by Robert Allan Ackerman) and Plain Truth (with Mariska Hargitay, directed by Paul Shapiro), among other works.
