Words by Ally Iseman about Ally Iseman.
Originally from the "subrural" town of Derwood, Maryland, which is exactly as glamorous as it sounds, Ally is a modern triple threat actor, writer, and producer. She has worked on stage in productions like Jekyll & Hyde where she portrayed four different characters with just as many dialects, as well as on screens big and small including shows like American Housewife, Criminal Minds, and NCIS: Los Angeles. Ally will make an appearance in Nicole Conn's newest feature film More Beautiful for Having Been Broken opposite French Stewart, Bruce Davison and Brooke Elliot; in Geo Santini's social media influencer mockumentary Like; and as a lead opposite Ray Wise and Bonnie Bedelia in the feature film Life On The Rocks. Ally has spoken on numerous panels about gender parity and inclusive feminism, doing her best to align herself with work that has an eye on advocacy. Her internationally award-winning film Wedlocked, an LGBTQ comedy about gay divorce written by American Psycho's Guinevere Turner and starring Shelli Boone, Showtime's Whitney Mixter and Academy Award nominated, Golden Globe and Spirit Award winning actor Sally Kirkland, toured at over 45 film festivals worldwide securing digital, broadcast and theatrical distribution. Most recently, Ally took 3rd Place at the Producers Guild Make Your Mark Competition with Edge Of Interment, an original musical short, in which she starred, co-wrote and produced. In addition, she can be seen in the feature film Solver, hosting the travel show The Road Less Eaten, and starring opposite Lake Bell, Amy Landecker, Michaela Watkins, Rob Huebel, Jeff Garlin and others in her gender parity comedy series Flip The Script, which is being produced in partnership with Women In Film. Ally is in pre-production on a half-hour workplace comedy series she co-created and in active development on a feature, residing in Santa Monica with the hard-won knowledge that The Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is 42.

As an actor, writer, and producer, it is deeply important to me to contribute work to this world that starts conversations, draws attention to or reframes something integral to the human experience. If there is ever any way that I can support you and your work in any of those capacities, please let me know as I would relish the opportunity to collaborate with you."
