The American actress, who plays Marnie Michaels in Lena Dunham's hit HBO show Girls, is no stranger to embracing the world of fairytale in her acting career. In 2014 she took on the role of Peter Pan, in NBC's live musical version of J.M. Barrie's classic play about a young boy who can fly and never grows up.

At the time, Allison admitted that she was ready to undergo a drastic makeover for the role and cut her hair into a pixie cut, but that the producers of the show told her that they would give her a wig instead.

"I sort of very tentatively offered to cut my hair, I was like, 'You know, if it's a thing that would help I could cut my hair,'," she explained during an appearance on The Today Show. "And they were like, 'You're welcome to do that, we're still gonna put you in a wig.'"
