Movie producer, Alicia Allain had always had a dream of being in Hollywood. Armed with this passion, she started off her journey as a hairstylist. After several hairstyling jobs for the cast of several movies, Alicia got the boost she needed to become a film producer. She recently married the Hollywood actor and director, John Schneider and their union has definitely caught the attention of fans who want to know more about Alicia. Read on for more details on Alicia Allain and her marriage to John Schneider.
Who Is Alicia Allain?
Alicia Allain was brought up in Southern Louisiana and as a little girl, she hoped that she would end up in a career path in the movie industry. In second grade, when her school teacher asked her what she wanted to be, Alicia penned down her dream of working in Hollywood. At 18, she relocated to Los Angeles, getting by through stipends that came in through her styling skills. She eventually got deals to style hair for cast members in a couple of movies and that was how her journey in the film industry started out.
It was during the course of her hairstyling job she met the film producer, Rafaela De Laurentis who is known for his work in the 1993 movie, Dragon, The Bruce Lee Story. He further elevated Alicia’s desire to become a movie producer and she started working towards it. In 1995, the celebrity hairstylist turned producer released her first film, Notes From Underground. Alicia Allain is also credited for The Badge released in 2002 as well as Auto Focus released in the same year.
More so, Alicia’s success story would definitely be incomplete without making mention of her former spouse, Pat Dollard. She reportedly received support from her ex-husband during the early days of her career. Pat, who at the time worked with William Morris, was able to arrange a meeting between Alicia and renowned film producer, Robert Evans – who eventually loved her skills and brought her into his company. Within a short period, Allain worked her way up the ladder to become the President of Robert Evans’ Company. However, the lady’s time in Robert Evans Company came to an end when she had to relocate back to Louisiana to take care of her daughter from her marriage to Pat Dollard.
How Did Alicia Allain Meet John Schneider?
After her work at Robert Evans Company in 2013, Alicia Allain stayed away from the Hollywood scenes for a while but decided to return the next year, which also happens to be the time she met John Schneider, who is not only an actor but also a scriptwriter and director. The duo’s first meeting was when Alicia contacted John to discuss some film-related issues to mark her comeback. Since then, the two have joined heads to bring out amazing movies which include the likes of Anderson Bench, Like Son, and Bad Blood. They became friends and eventually fell in love.
The film producer went on to marry John Schneider in July 2019 and the wedding ceremony took place at a barn in John Schneider Studios, Louisiana. Allain looked stunning in her white sleeveless dress while John had a light brown suit on. Family and friends graced the outdoor ceremony which was a fun event involving fireworks and lots more. However, their marriage hasn’t been legalized due to the long-standing issues with the finalization of the divorce between John and ex-wife Elvira. His marriage to Alicia Allain can only become legal after the divorce is finalized.
It is also known that Alicia’s current beau was once married to Elvira ‘Elly’ Castle, but they went their separate ways after 21 years in marriage. This was after she filed for a divorce citing irreconcilable differences. Elvira had 3 children with John – Leah, Chasen, and Karis, who are now adults.
Prior to this marriage, John was also the partner of the Beauty Queen, Twanny Little, who won Miss New York in 1975 and Miss America in 1976. Their union was, however, shortlived as they were married from 1983 to 1986. With his recent marriage to Alicia Allain, many have speculated this would be his happily ever after as he shares a lot of things in common with Alicia Allain especially in terms of career paths.
