Lala Cassandra Sloatman (born October 12, 1970) is an American model, actress and costumer. Her uncle was musician Frank Zappa; her cousins are Ahmet, Diva, Moon and Dweezil Zappa. She is frequently billed by her first name only, and sometimes as Lala Zappa.
Born in Winter Park, Florida, Sloatman's first name is the Hawaiian form of Laura. Her father is second-generation Marine John Sloatman III, whose sister Gail is musician Frank Zappa's widow. Sloatman ultimately moved to Santa Barbara, California, and after that to Los Angeles. She has numerous half-siblings on both sides of her family.
In the 1980s, Sloatman appeared in the films Watchers (1988) and Dream a Little Dream (1989), alongside her then-boyfriend Corey Haim. Haim personally suggested her for the lead in a third movie, Prayer of the Rollerboys (1991), but she lost out to Patricia Arquette. Sloatman's additional movie work includes Bunny Bunny Bunny (a short film which co-starred her cousin Moon and Kyle Richards), Pump Up the Volume (1990), Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993, as Lauren Holly's college roommate), Buy One, Get One Free* (1996), Manfast (2003), Net Games (2003, as a sexy serial killer) and Sofia Coppola's Somewhere (2010).
