She then began studying at "The Young Actors Space" located in Los Angeles when she was seven.



Mack began acting at the age of four in commercials for German Chocolate. She then went into modeling for a short period because her mother thought she "looked cute in clothes." Her first major TV role came in an episode of the WB series 7th Heaven, where she gained a lot of attention playing a teenager who cut herself.

In 2000, she starred in two short-lived series: Hiller and Diller and Opposite Sex. She also starred alongside Sam Jones III in an R. L. Stine miniseries The Nightmare Room. Her filmography includes Eric Stoltz's directorial debut My Horrible Year!, where she plays a girl having great difficulties in her life as she turns sixteen, and Camp Nowhere.

In 2006 Mack provided the voice of the sister of the main character in the Warner Bros. CGI movie, The Ant Bully. Also in 2006, Allison provided the voice of a museum curator named Clea in an episode of The Batman (who bore a deliberate resemblance to Mack).

In her free time, Allison likes to go to the movies and theater, read, listen to music, and hang out with friends and family. Allison's family, her Dad (Jonathan Mack), Mom (Mindy), older brother Shannon, and little sister, Robyn, live in Southern California. Allison lives in Vancouver, B.C. where, Smallville was filmed.

Allison was set to direct an episode of Season Seven in March or April, 2008. Unfortunately, her directorial debut was canceled due to the Writers' Strike. She got a second chance at directing in Season Eight, when she directed episode 13 Power. And the next year directed again - this time the Season Nine episode Warrior. Also, she provided voice over for Power Girl in the animated movie adaption of the comic book Superman/Batman: Public Enemies.

NXIVM and criminal prosecution

On April 2018 she was arrested with charges including sex trafficking. A year later on April 8, 2019, Mack pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering charges, and was scheduled for sentencing in September 2019.
