Profile Bio Text
Mia Lily Wasikowska is an Australian actress, born on October 14, 1989 in Australia’s capital city, Canberra. She originally was studying ballet, but in 2006 she decided to focus primarily as an actress. As a result, she was nominated for an AFI award in the category, Young Actor awards.
After accepting supporting roles in several projects produced in Australia (including the 2006 Suburban Mayhem and the 2007 September), beautiful yet distinguished actress broke through to international acclaim with her role as self-defeating Olympic-hopeful gymnast Sophie on the HBO series drama In Treatment (2008).
That assignment predated Wasikowska’s starring roles for two A-list directors: a turn as the young aviator Amelia Earhart in Mira Nair’s biopic Amelia (2009), and another as the little girl adrift in a colorful fantasyland in Tim Burton’s Lewis Carroll adaptation Alice in Wonderland (2010). Meanwhile, she also acted opposite Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber, and others in the WWII-era adventure drama Defiance (2008), helmed by Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai).
