    Sweeney was raised in Los Angeles and is the second child of three. Making her television debut in a Kodak commercial at the age of 5, she soon began landing roles in television. As a teenager, she started portraying 'Sami' Brady on Days of Our Lives, where she has achieved many awards.

    When she's not acting, Alison enjoys keeping active by kickboxing, horseback riding, swimming, and water-skiing. Sweeney is also an accomplished author. Her book, All the Days of My Life (So Far), was published in 2004 to critical acclaim. The book gives readers a glimpse into Sweeney's personal life by describing her experience as a child actor, life on the set of Days of Our Lives, painful high school memories, and the struggle to lose weight and keep it off.

    Alison lives in Los Angeles with her husband Dave and son, Benjamin.
