Born in Austin, Texas, young actor Marshall Allman dove head-long into his passion for soccer and visual art from the age of five. Though always a straight-A student, Marshall was often sent to the principal’s office for, shall we say, “irreverent” behavior. This same behavior is what led many of his early teachers to tell him he should consider entertainment as a career.At age fifteen, Marshall discovered the varied live music scene in Austin. His taste in music continues to be quite eclectic, with special interest in blues, jazz, and rock. He produced a play with friends when he was 17 called HISTORY OF THE DEVIL, which was the premier production of the Fear Theatre Company in Austin. This was also his acting debut.In his junior and senior year of high school, Marshall received awards in competitions sponsored by the State of Texas for his paintings and drawings. He led his high school soccer team as its captain to win the Texas State Championship, and they went on to play throughout the nation. Though originally intending to pursue a career in professional soccer, he began to consider pursuing graphic or performing arts. As he approached high school graduation, it was a toss-up between going to New York City to study art and Los Angeles to study acting.Brought to Hollywood by Steven Nash of Arts and Letters Management, he quickly landed acting roles in such films as SWEET PEA, SHALLOW GROUND, and LITTLE BLACK BOOK. He has appeared in such television shows as THE PRACTICE, WITHOUT A TRACE, and MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE.In 2005 Marshall appeared in the dramatic feature film HOSTAGE, starring opposite Bruce Willis, and in the thought provoking short film, STARCROSSED, a story about two brothers. To be released later this year will be the feature film DISHDOGZ.
