Karen Allen is an American actress.


Born in Carrollton, Illinois, Allen joined the Shakespeare & Company in Massachussetts and studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute. She soon made her feature film debut in National Lampoon's Animal House, but it was her role as Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark that made her name.

Allen appeared in a number of stage plays, including Extremities, whilst maintaining her film career with major film appearances, such as The Glass Menagerie and Scrooged. Such roles were reduced to character roles upon the birth of her son, though she made a number of television guest appearances, such as Law and Order. In 2008 she reprised the role of Marion for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in which her character was finally married to Jones.


Allen only sang in one film, performing the duet "All I Have to Do Is Dream" in Starman with Jeff Bridges.
