About Mia Farrow

Artistic and critical success, as well as money and fame, came to Mia Farrow at an early age. Following her young life in 1940s Hollywood as the daughter of Hollywood royalty, she gained national attention through her role in the television classic Peyton Place. Farrow went on to star in over forty movies, including such classics as Rosemary’s Baby, The Great Gatsby and Hannah and Her Sisters. As successful as her professional life was, her personal life was marked with many struggles, leading her to begin a journey toward a significant life.

Farrow’s earliest memories come from the walled gardens and rocky shores of western Ireland, a time and place where she experienced multiple hardships as a young girl. The onset of polio at age nine and the deaths of two family members several years later profoundly affected her as a child and shattered any sense of family security. Making steps to put these misfortunes behind her, Farrow began her journey to the heights of Hollywood.

As the mother of fourteen children (ten of whom are adopted) Farrow has devoted her life to humanitarian efforts and the care of a truly remarkable family. Farrow has been a high-profile advocate for children’s rights, working to raise funds and awareness for children in conflict-affected regions, predominantly Africa. She is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and has worked extensively to draw attention to the fight to eradicate polio.

Farrow reflects on her ever-evolving life journey in her sincere and candid best seller, What Falls Away. In what Newsweek calls “a simply elegant memoir,” she presents a revealing account of her personal struggles and successes, and the quest to find deeper meaning in her life. Expanding on this memoir, Farrow graces the lecture stage with her eloquence and honesty in a unique presentation that is sure to inspire any audience.
