Mia Sara Biography

Home > Actresses > S > Sara, Mia > Biography

Birth Name: Mia Sara
Born: 06/19/1967
Birth Place: Brooklyn, New York, USA

TV has also offered Sara many paychecks, but only the occasional chance to show off her acting skills. Some considered her miscast in the title role of the miniseries "Queenie" (ABC, 1987), a thinly veiled biopic of screen goddess Merle Oberon, based on Michael Korda's book. (Sara, who won the role in part because of her resemblance to Oberon, herself later admitted that at age 19 she was too young for the role). In Judith Krantz's sudsy "Till We Meet Again" (CBS, 1989), she fared somewhat better as the daughter whose extraordinary good looks lead to a successful film career. She also turned up in the TV-movies "Big Time" (PBS, 1989, as a frustrated fashion model), in the horror thriller "Daughter of Darkness" (CBS, 1990) and played the Loretta Young role in the remake of "Call of the Wild" (CBS, 1993). Among her more notable guest appearances was as the intelligent, sympathetic transsexual girlfriend of a hard-headed doctor (Peter Berg) on "Chicago Hope" (CBS, 1996), a character, unfortunately, killed off after two episodes. More recently, Sara was paired with her real-life husband Jason Connery as Soviet spies in the uneven thriller "Bullet to Beijing" (TMC, 1997).
