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.

  • Daughter of 'John Farrow (I)' (qv) and 'Maureen O'Sullivan (I)' (qv).
  • Was featured on People's first published issue, March 4, 1974.
  • Was one of the bridesmaids when 'Liza Minnelli' (qv) married 'David Gest' (qv) in a lavish ceremony on March 16, 2002. Farrow and Minnelli have been friends since childhood.
  • At one time, was scheduled to star in _Mary, Queen of Scots (1971)_ (qv) with 'Geneviève Bujold' (qv). The film was eventually made with 'Glenda Jackson' (qv) and 'Vanessa Redgrave' (qv) in the leads.
  • Mia and her family live in huge rent-controlled apartment building right next door to Manhattan's legendary Dakota apartment house, which starred as the devilish locale in _Rosemary's Baby (1968)_ (qv). Dakota is also the building where her friend, 'John Lennon (I)' (qv), lived and in front of which he was shot to death.
  • She and 'Woody Allen' (qv) made 13 movies together: _Broadway Danny Rose (1984)_ (qv), _Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989)_ (qv), _Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)_ (qv), _Alice (1990)_ (qv), _Another Woman (1988)_ (qv), _The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985)_ (qv), _September (1987)_ (qv), _Husbands and Wives (1992)_ (qv), _A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982)_ (qv), _New York Stories (1989)_ (qv), _Radio Days (1987)_ (qv), _Shadows and Fog (1991)_ (qv) and _Zelig (1983)_ (qv).
  • Mia has 15 children. She has three biological children with 'André Previn' (qv): twins Matthew Phineas and Sascha Villiers, and 'Fletcher Farrow Previn' (qv). She adopted three children while married to Previn: 'Soon-Yi Previn' (qv), Lark Song and Summer Song (aka 'Daisy Previn' (qv)). She has one biological child with 'Woody Allen' (qv): Satchel O'Sullivan Farrow (now known as Ronan Seamus Farrow). She adopted two children while with Allen: 'Moses Farrow' (qv) (aka Misha), 'Dylan O'Sullivan Farrow' (qv)(aka Mallone). She has adopted six children as a single mother: Tam Farrow, Isaiah Justus Farrow, Quincy Farrow (aka Kaeli-Shea Farrow), Frankie-Minh Farrow, Thaddeus W. Farrow and Gabriel Wilk Farrow. Tam Farrow died in March of 2000 at age 19 of a heart ailment. Lark Farrow died in December of 2008 at age 35.
  • Turned down the role of Mattie Ross in the 1969 now classic _True Grit (1969)_ (qv) opposite 'John Wayne (I)' (qv), a decision she now cites as the worst mistake she has made in her career.
