BE KIND REWIND
Born in Los Angeles, MIA FARROW is the daughter of director John Farrow and Irish actress Maureen O'Sullivan. Her career began with a two-year stint on the soap opera "Peyton Place," but she was first really given recognition for Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby (1968), in which she co-starred with the maverick filmmaker John Cassavetes and received glowing reviews. Following that, she appeared in such memorable films as The Great Gatsby (1974) Death on the Nile (1978), as well as numerous Woody Allen films including Hannah and her Sisters (1986), Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989), and Alice (1990), for which she was honored with an NBR Award for best actress.
Mia ventured into other endeavors when she published her New York Times best selling memoir, What Falls Away, in 1997. She recently returned to the stage, appearing in James Lapine's Fran's Bed at the Long Wharf Theater in New Haven, and Jessica Blake and Eric Jensen's The Exonerated. In 2006, she starred in The Omen with Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles, and in 2007, she was seen in the Luc Besson movie Arthur and the Invisibles and the independent film The Ex with Zach Braff and directed by Jesse Peretz.
Mia has been a high profile advocate for children's rights, working to raise funds and awareness for children in conflict affected regions, predominantly in Africa. Her latest effort is www.miafarrow.org, containing a guide on how to get involved with Darfur activism, along with her photos and blog entries from Darfur, Chad, and the Central African Republic.
