Mia Farrow

Mia Farrow stars in Luc Besson's upcoming film Arthur & The Minimoys, and in the upcoming Fast Track, with Jason Bateman and Zach Braff.

Just before production began on THE OMEN, Farrow played opposite Julia Stiles in the Playwrights Horizons Main Stage production of Fran's Bed, written and directed by James Lapine. Other recent stage work includes Jessica Blake and Eric Jenson's The Exonerated.

The daughter of director John Farrow and actress Maureen O'Sullivan, Farrow made her stage debut in 1963 in an off-Broadway production of The Importance of Being Earnest. Farrow enjoyed a two-year stint on the popular soap opera Peyton Place. Her work on the series caught the attention of audiences around the world. Farrow received glowing reviews for her work in Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby, in which she starred with John Cassavetes.

Farrow followed this success with appearances on television, in the theatre and in the films The Great Gatsby and Death on the Nile, among others.

With 1982's A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy, Farrow became Woody Allen's muse and the two went on to make more than 13 films together. Their collaborations include Hannah and Her Sisters, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Husbands and Wives, Shadows and Fog, and Alice; for the latter, Farrow was honored with an NBR Award for Best Actress.

In 1997, Farrow published her New York Times best-selling memoir, What Falls Away.

More recently, Farrow appeared in the film Purpose, and on television in Samantha: An American Girl Holiday.
