Sian Barbara Allen was born Barbara Susan Pokrass in Reading, Pennsylvania, on July 12, 1946. She studied at the Pasadena Playhouse from 1964 to 1965. Her performance as the mentally challenged Kathleen in Vous aimerez ma mère (1972), opposite Patty Duke, Rosemary Murphy, and Richard Thomas, earned her a 1973 Golden Globe nomination for "Most Promising New Actress." While working on 'You'll Like My Mother,' Allen met and fell in love with the man playing her character's psychopathic brother, actor Richard Thomas. The two began a relationship that lasted for several years in the 1970s. Thomas went on to play John-Boy on the hit TV show La famille des collines (1972). When the writers of 'The Waltons' wanted to do a love story for John-Boy in the first season, Thomas suggested that his real-life girlfriend play his onscreen love interest. Allen appeared as Jenny Pendleton in the episode La famille des collines: The Love Story (1973), which earned Thomas his Emmy award in 1973, and in La famille des collines: The Thanksgiving Story (1973). Allen portrayed the titular character Peggy Johns in the 1973 TV movie Scream, Pretty Peggy (1973), with Bette Davis and Ted Bessell. Allen worked steadily as a TV actress throughout the 1970s, appearing on such shows as Deux cent dollars plus les frais (1974), L'homme de fer (1967), Bonanza (1959), Gunsmoke (1955), and many others. She also wrote a script for an episode of the fourth season of Baretta (1975). Her last onscreen role was in the La loi de Los Angeles (1986) episode La loi de Los Angeles: Whatever Happened to Hannah? (1990). Allen ended her acting career after marrying and giving birth to a daughter. She now channels her creativity into writing. She is the older sister of flash-fiction author, editor, and teacher Meg Pokrass. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
