About this actor
Alisan Porter (born June 20, 1981) is an American actress, singer and dancer. Porter was born in Worcester, Massachusetts to a Jewish family. Her maternal grandmother, whose father Joseph Klein was a prominent Worcester rabbi, ran the Charlotte Klein Dance Center in Worcester. Porter's mother, Laura Klein, was a dance coach for Diane Klimaszewski & Elaine Klimaszewski (now better known as the Coors Light Twins) who appeared on Star Search in 1987 in the teen dance category.
