Who is Lori Anne Allison?

Lori was born in the USA on 6 September 1957 – her zodiac sign is Virgo, and she holds American nationality. She’s a make-up artist, who’s probably known best for being the former wife of famous American actor Johnny Depp.

Early life and education

Lori was raised in the US by her parents, about whom very little is known because she respects their privacy; it’s believed that her mother was also a make-up artist, and that her father was in the real estate business. Lori hasn’t spoken of having any siblings and is thus believed to be an only child.

She had a rather normal childhood, and became interested in make-up when she was around 16 years old; Lori was at that time attending a local high school, and occasionally put make-up on her peers before they were to go to a party and various other events.

Lori matriculated in 1975 and because she hasn’t spoken of her further education, it’s believed that she didn’t attend college.

Lori’s career

Lori worked as a make-up artist for close to two decades upon completing her high school education, until her skills were noticed and she was invited to work on the 1992 crime thriller movie “Sunset Heat”.

She was then engaged as a make-up artist for what became a couple of popular movies, such as the 1993 mystery thriller comedy “Acting on Impulse”, the 1995 comedy “The State’s 43rd Annual All-Star Halloween Special”, and the 1995 adventure science fiction crime “Cyber Bandits”.

The year 1999 saw her work on the drama “Matters of Consequence”, written and directed by Morgan Higby Night, who also starred in it alongside Robin Antin and Phil Buckman.

The movie failed to attract any attention, and this was one of the reasons why Lori spent the following nine years away from the film industry, returning in 2008 to work as a make-up artist on both the short comedy film “The Cold Reader” and the musical movie “Stand Up to Cancer”.

In 2008, Lori worked on the comedy series “Supreme Court of Comedy”, while a couple of her most recent jobs have been on the 2009 documentary film “Life Is a Banquet”, and the 2016 short comedy movies “The Muse” and “Recalculating”.

She’s currently co-producing the upcoming documentary movie “Long Lonesome Highway: The Story of Michael Parks”.

He’s appeared in close to 100 movies and TV series, while he’s perhaps still known best for his portrayal of the lead character Jack Sparrow in the 2003 action adventure fantasy movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”.

Johnny was raised alongside his three older siblings, by their father John Christopher Depp who was a civil engineer, and their mother Betty Sue Palmer (nee Wells) who was a waitress; the family often moved while Johnny was growing up, and they eventually settled in Miramar, Florida. After Johnny turned 15, his parents divorced and he went on to live with his mother and her second husband Robert Palmer; he was mostly into rock music during his teenage years, and quit Miramar High School when he was 16, wanting to pursue music.

He was introduced to American actor and moviemaker Nicolas Cage by Lori in 1982, and Nicolas then helped Johnny appear in his first movie, the 1984 horror “A Nightmare on Elm Street”; he went on to steadily make a name for himself in the film industry, and a couple of his most notable performances in the remainder of the ‘80s were in the 1986 war movie “Platoon”, the 1988 romantic series “Hotel” and the 1988 short comedy movie “R. P. G. II”.

Johnny became famous worldwide in 1990, when he starred as Edward Scissorhands in the eponymous romantic fantasy movie, written and directed by Tim Burton, and which also starred Winona Ryder and Dianne Wiest. It follows an artificial man with scissors for hands, who has just been introduced to humans; the movie won nine of the 34 awards for which it was nominated, including an Oscar nomination for Best Make-up.

A couple of his other notable performances in the ‘90s were in the 1993 drama movie “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”, the 1997 biographical crime film “Donnie Brasco”, and the 1999 science fiction thriller movie “The Astronaut’s Wife”.

Following his appearance in the first “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie in 2003, Johnny went on to star in all of its sequels, including the 2006 “Dead Man’s Chest”, the 2011 “On Stranger Tides” and the 2017 “Dead Men Tell No Tales”.

His most recent role has been his voicing of Johnny Puff, in the 2022 animated adventure mini-series “Puffins Impossible”.
