Alison Arngrim Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Although Alison eventually went on to portray the deliciously evil Nellie Oleson very authentically in Little House on the Prairie, Alison's co-stars have said that she wasn't as confident in the beginning. Melissa Sue Anderson—who played Mary Ingalls on the show—said in an interview that Alison was very shy and intimidated by the camera at first, and it was difficult getting her to lift her eyes from the floor. Fortunately, she eventually got into her groove and played the role well.
