Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living... at home with her dad. Ally isn’t exactly thrilled by that, but it’s the best she can do at the moment. And, hey, at least she mostly gets along well with her Sinatra-loving father and his friends.

Profession... waitress and aspiring musician. At the moment, Ally’s most high-profile gig is performing at a local drag bar. But her life is turned upside down by a chance encounter with Jackson Maine, one of the world’s biggest country stars. Jack convinces Ally to join him onstage at one of his concerts and suddenly her rock star dreams seem a whole lot more attainable.

Interests... writing original songs and listening to Édith Piaf.

Relationship Status... dating Jack. In addition to working with Jack professionally, Ally quickly falls for him personally as well. Ally immediately spots that Jack is a lost soul, but she’s drawn to his charisma anyway. As Ally sings to him in one of her original songs, “Tell me something, boy. Aren’t you tired trying to fill that void? Or do you need more? Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?”

Challenge... building a career while supporting Jack. Thanks to Jack’s help, Ally quickly emerges as a bright new artist. But as Ally’s star starts to rise, Jack’s starts to fall. Ally has to handle the demands of a new, high-profile career while also taking care of the man she loves. Jack’s struggles with alcohol and drug addiction only make that more challenging. Torn between professional and personal responsibilities, Ally must choose where to focus her energy, while also trying to find herself as an artist.

Personality... fierce yet fragile. Ally has a ferocious talent and a dedication to her craft. Yet she can also be a little bit timid when it comes to standing up for herself and claiming her space. She has plenty of insecurities, especially because of the rejection she’s faced in the past. As she tells Jack, “Almost every single person that I've come in contact with in the music industry has told me that my nose is too big and that I won't make it.” However, there’s also a fundamental strength to Ally as well. Her voice is strong, both literally and figuratively. She just needs to figure out how to use it.
