(Maria de Lourdes Villiers Farrow)
Birthplace: Los Angeles
Actress whose intelligent and sensitively shaped roles have more often been overshadowed by her relationships with major entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Andre Previn, and Woody Allen. Farrow's early movies included Rosemary's Baby (1965) and The Great Gatsby (1974), in which she played Daisy Buchanan. Farrow and Allen collaborated successfully in such well regarded movies as Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) before their relationship exploded in scandal, as Allen became romantically linked with Mia's daughter from a previous marriage, Soon-Yi Previn.
