Meet Alisa Gore, Betty Gore Older Daughter
Alisa Gore is the older daughter of Betty Pomeroy Gore, who died on 13 June 1980, and Allan Gore. Alisa was in Candy’s house the day her mother died. She and Candy’s daughter Jenny (in the show Becky) were best friends who planned a sleepover for the second day in a row.
The Montgomery family had invited Alisa over to watch a new Star Wars movie in the theatre. On the day her mother died, she had a swimming lesson she had to attend. So, Candy assured Alisa that she would go get her bathing suits from her home. And that’s when the murder of Betty Gore happened which, now we know as Hulu’s Candy, recent true-crime series from the network.
Allan, a senior at Southwestern and a teaching assistant taught her Math and soon they fell in love. They got married on 25 January 1970 and later their first child Alisa was born. Allan worked for Rockwell International at the time.
Then, eventually, Candy came into their lives.
Alisa’s mum met Candy because of the church service that they performed together. They became friends and in the process, sexually-frustrated Candy got attracted to Allan who also at the time was worried that his s*x life with Betty was dwindling to nothing.
Yes. Allan cheated on his wife with Candy and later after the affair had ended after seven months Candy was killed by Candy’s 41 ax chops.
Following Betty’s death, Allan quickly remarried (not to Candy) and moved away. The marriage with his new wife ended and he let Betty’s parents raise Alsa and another daughter left by Betty.
Now, as of 2022, Alisa’s dad is retired and living in Florida. And in his Facebook, he mentioned being in a “domestic partnership”.

Which Actor Plays Alisa Gore On Hulu’s Candy?
So far, it was not revealed who plays young Alisa Gore on Hulu’s Candy. But we can assure you that six-year-old Alisa certainly appears in this series.
A couple of years before the fateful 13th June 1980, Candy had had an affair with fellow church member Allan Gore (played in “Candy” by Pablo Schreiber), a lengthy involvement Gore ended partly over his guilt about neglecting his wife Betty (played by Melanie Lynskey). Because she also is a part of this story that happened many many years ago. On the day of real Alisa’s mum’s killing the young one was having a sleepover at the Montgomery’s that night. Betty had told her husband, who was away on a business, that she would be picking up Alisa’s bathing suit because she needed it at her sleepover.
When Allan called home and could not reach his wife was concerned about who could have been home with baby Bethany, Alisa’s younger sister. That night when the neighbors finally got into the Gore house they had discovered the baby sister crying in her crib. The dead mum was found covered in blood with a 3-foot ax nearby.
That night, before Betty breathed her last year, she had warned her husband’s ex-lover to not see him again because she was going to have another baby.
