In a short amount of time, MIA WASIKOWSKA has established herself as a rising star of the big screen. A trained ballerina turned actress, Wasikowska has been challenging herself as a performer since the age of 9.

Wasikowska made her debut to US audiences as the tormented and suicidal teen "Sophie" in HBO's series "In Treatment" and went on to star in such films as Defiance co-starring Daniel Craig, Liev Schrieber and Jamie Bell and Amelia starring Hilary Swank and Richard Gere for director Mira Nair.

In 2010, Wasikowska starred as the title character in Tim Burton's retelling of the Lewis Carrol novel, Alice in Wonderland. The Disney live and 3-D animated film co-starred Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Michael Sheen and Alan Rickman. That same summer, Wasikowska co-starred in the Academy Award nominated film The Kids Are All Right with Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo.

In 2011, Wasikowska tackled the lead role in Jane Eyre, director Cary Fukunaga's screen adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel. The film released to worldwide critical acclaim, praising the performances of Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender (as "Rochester").

This Fall, Wasikowska will be seen in the Gus Van Sant directed film Restless alongside Henry Hopper. Wasikowska will soon start production on the Fox Searchlight dramatic thriller Stoker opposite Nicole Kidman and Matthew Goode. The film, directed by Chan-wook Park from a screenplay by actor Wentworth Miller, tells the story of a teenage girl (Wasikowska), who, while mourning the death of her father is introduced to her uncle who mysteriously shows up to meet the family.
