Allison Maier is an Atlanta native who began her acting career on stage at age 9. She has always been passionately involved in the arts. Like many horror fans she grew up on the Universal Monsters and Vincent Price fare, graduating to Slashers, J-Horror, and Psychological Thrillers as her tastes expanded. She studied Psychology and Theater at the University of Georgia, during which time she began working in special effects make up with Shane Morton and Chris Brown at Silver Scream FX Lab.
She made her feature debut as Jessica in Jonathan Rej’s Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse: The Movie (2014), written by Jonathan Rej and Eddie Ray. Realizing her passion for filmmaking was stronger than The Shape, she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of being an actor.
