BIOGRAPHY:

Mia Farrow is the daughter of the director John Farrow (I) and the actress and Tarzan-girl 'Maureen OSullivan (I). She debuted at the movies in 1959 in very small roles. She was noticed for the first time in the film Rosemary's Baby (1968) by Roman Polanski. She showed her talent also on TV and at the theatre, but her final breakthrough was when she met Woody Allen and became his Muse after the film A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982). After that, Woody Allen wrote many other roles for her.


TRIVIA:
  • On March 22, 2009, 'Mia Farrow' (qv) attended the funeral of her good friend and former costar, 'Natasha Richardson (I)' (qv).
  • After 'André Previn' (qv) left his wife 'Dory Previn' (qv) for Farrow, Dory wrote the song "Beware of Young Girls" in response.
  • Is portrayed by 'Nina Siemaszko' (qv) in _Sinatra (1992) (TV)_ (qv) and by 'Patsy Kensit' (qv) in _Love and Betrayal: The Mia Farrow Story (1995) (TV)_ (qv).
  • At one time, was scheduled to star in _Thelma & Louise (1991)_ (qv) as Thelma, with 'Jane Fonda' (qv) as Louise. But two writers' strikes, one in 1981 and another in 1988 left the project into development hell. The film was eventually made with 'Geena Davis' (qv) as Thelma and 'Susan Sarandon' (qv) as Louise, and became a box office success.
  • Her mother attended private school with fellow actress 'Vivien Leigh' (qv), and Leigh gave Farrow's career a push when she made her off-Broadway debut playing Cecily in a New York revival of "The Importance of Being Earnest". Leigh put out personal phone calls to make sure that agents and casting directors saw the show.
  • Was on the first cover of People Magazine.
  • Her former step-children, 'Frank Sinatra Jr.' (qv) (b. 1944), and 'Nancy Sinatra.' (b. 1940) were older than her.
  • Elder brother Michael (born 1939) perished in a 1958 plane crash while taking flying lessons.
