Alison Arngrim is back! After years of being out of the spotlight, she returns to acting with a new film called Even In Dreams. Alison is best known for her role as the bully Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie in the ’70s. She continued acting in the ’80s through the 2000s in smaller projects.

Alison opened up about working more again. She shared, “I have quite a lot going on right now considering the current circumstances. I just completed filming on an independent film called Even In Dreams. It’s a lovely family film about a young girl trying to make it in the music industry while hanging on to her values. I play the evil manager who almost ruins everything for her.”
