Former Dukes of Hazzard star Schneider wrote after his wife’s passing:
“This is a time of unimaginable sorrow for me,”
“Grief is much too small a word. I’ve heard it said that ‘with great love comes great sorrow.’ I had no idea what that meant until now. Alicia was the fuel that ran my biggest dreams…
The inspiration behind every creative thought. The very fabric of my soul. The glue that held me together. I miss her more than any words could possibly describe.”
“Please respect our privacy during this time of grief. Please do not ask any questions.”
Based on Bob Crane of Hogan’s Heroes, Paul Schrader’s 2002 film Auto Focus was produced by Allain. Willem Dafoe, Maria Bello, and Greg Kinnear appeared in the movie.

In the last ten years, she has also produced several films starring Schneider, several of which he also directed. These movies include To Die For from the previous year, Inadmissible, Anderson Bench (as EP), 4: GO (as EP), and Hate Crime. The couple wed in 2019.
