María de Lourdes «Mia» Villiers Farrow (born February 9, 1945) is an American actress, activist and former fashion model. She first gained notice for her role as Allison MacKenzie in the television soap opera Peyton Place and gained further recognition for her subsequent short-lived marriage to Frank Sinatra. An early film role, as Rosemary in Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby (1968), saw her nominated for a BAFTA and a Golden Globe for Best Actress. She went on to appear in films such as John and Mary (1969), Follow Me! (1972), The Great Gatsby (1974) and Death on the Nile (1978).
Mia Farrow turned out to be immensely unlucky with her children. Her adopted daughter Tam died at the age of 19 from a heart failure. Shortly after that, her other daughter Lark died at the age of 3 due to some complications caused by AIDS.
