She began acting at 4 with print work and commercials, and began studying at The Young Actors Space in Los Angeles when she was 7. Before joining the cast of Smallville (2001), Allison starred in the short-lived and sorely under-rated Fox television comedy Opposite Sex (2000). Prior to that, she was a regular on Hiller and Diller (1997), working alongside great talents such as Richard Lewis, Kevin Nealon, and Eugene Levy. Allison has also guest-starred in the WB family drama 7th Heaven (1996) as a teenager caught up in the "cutting" trend.
Mack has starred in many movies for television, including the cable film My Horrible Year! (2001), which was directed by Eric Stoltz and starring Karen Allen, Mimi Rogers, and Stoltz himself. She was also in A Private Matter (1992) with Sissy Spacek and Aidan Quinn, Living a Lie (1991) with Peter Coyote and Jill Eikenberry, Unlikely Angel (1996) with Dolly Parton and Roddy McDowall, and Stolen Memories: Secrets from the Rose Garden (1996) starring Mary Tyler Moore and Linda Lavin. Allison is also an accomplished dancer and singer and she currently living in Los Angeles. She enjoys reading, going to movies and plays and spending time with her friends and family.
Announced her engagement to her longtime boyfriend, Peter (March 2003). In 2008 she said in her blog that marriage was something she didn't see herself committing to anytime soon. In January 2009 she mentioned a boyfriend in her blog. It is unknown if this is the aforementioned Peter.

In 2017 and 2018, numerous news outlets reported that Allison Mack was a member of, a leader in, and a recruiter for a group called Nxivm (pronounced "Nexium"), founded by a charismatic self-help guru named Keith Raniere. Ostensibly a self-help organization offering career and life advice seminars, Nxivm has been accused by former members of being a cult in which Raniere held mental, financial, and sexual sway over his mostly female members. In March 2018, Raniere was arrested and charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and conspiracy to commit forced labor. Among other allegations, former members claimed that the group required them to act as sex slaves to Raniere and to have his initials branded on their pelvis. On Friday, April 20, 2018, Mack was arrested and indicted on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.
