Date of Birth 6 August 1973, Passaic County, New Jersey, USA Birth Name Vera Ann Farmiga Height 5' 7" (1.70 m) Farmiga, the second oldest of seven children, grew up in Irvington, New Jersey to Michael and Luba Farmiga, Ukrainian immigrants. She was raised in an insular Ukrainian American community, not speaking English until the age of six. She attended a Ukrainian Catholic school in Newark and toured with a Ukrainian folk-dancing ensemble. In 1991, Farmiga graduated from Hunterdon Central Regional High School. Although she originally intended to become an optometrist, Farmiga attended Syracuse University's School of Visual and Performing Arts. She made her Broadway debut in 1996 as an understudy in the play Taking Sides. The same year, she starred as "Miranda" in the American Conservatory Theater production of The Tempest. Throughout the late 1990s, she continued appearing in stage, television and film roles, including a part in the 1998 film Return to Paradise. Farmiga appeared in several high profile films in the early 2000s, including Autumn in New York and 15 Minutes. She also played opposite Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep in the 2004 Jonathan Demme remake of The Manchurian Candidate. Her lead performance in the 2005 independent film Down to the Bone received a "Best Actress" award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. Farmiga subsequently co-starred with Paul Walker in the 2006 action thriller, Running Scared. In 2006, Farmiga played police psychiatrist Madolyn in Martin Scorsese's The Departed, alongside Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Wahlberg, Jack Nicholson, and Martin Sheen. From Wikipedia
