Birth Place: Hollywood, California, USA Profession: Cast ... actor


Known for her intense performances onscreen, no script could ever match the real life drama that followed actress Mia Farrow throughout her tumultuous life and career. Born to Hollywood royalty, she first burst into public view as the star of the hugely popular primetime soap "Peyton Place" (ABC, 1964-69) and as the teen bride of superstar Frank Sinatra, followed by a career-making turn in Roman Polanski's horror classic "Rosemary's Baby" (1968). More notable roles followed in high-profile films such as "The Great Gatsby" (1974), in addition to another celebrity marriage to renowned composer-conductor, André Previn. It was, however, Farrow's extended relationship with revered filmmaker Woody Allen that would produce not only some of the actress' finest work - "Broadway Danny Rose" (1984), "Hannah and Her Sisters" (1986) and "Alice" (1990), among others - but her greatest heartache, as well. The shocking revelation that Allen had been in a sexual relationship with their 21-year-old adoptive daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, in 1992 shook Farrow's world to its foundation, simultaneously ending both her longest-running romantic relationship and most fruitful artistic collaboration. In the years that followed the scandal, Farrow continued to act, although her humanitarian work in the East African region of Darfur and her own growing family clearly took precedence. Seemingly meek and emotionally fragile - traits skillfully exploited in her acting - Farrow ultimately emerged as a survivor, as well as a voice for children around the world.
