Richard Lawrence Hatch (May 21, 1945 – February 7, 2017) was an American actor, writer, and producer. Hatch began his career as a stage actor, before moving on to television work in the 1970s. Hatch is best known for his role as Captain Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica television series.

Career[edit]

Early life and career[edit]

Hatch was born on May 21, 1945 in Santa Monica, California.[1] While in high school, he aspired to become an athlete in pole vaulting, and only had a passing interest in acting, as he considered himself too shy and insecure. The assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, while Hatch had just started college, turned him towards acting; he had been enrolled in a required oral interpretation course at the time, and following the assassination, presented an article written about Kennedy upon which he said: “As I began to read this article, I got so affected by what I was saying that I forgot myself. I was expressing feelings and emotions I tended to keep locked inside of myself.”[1]

Hatch began his theatrical career with the Los Angeles Repertory Theater, as well as shows in Chicago and Off-Broadway.[2]

Television[edit]

Hatch began working in television in 1970 when he starred as Philip Brent in the daytime soap opera All My Children, a role he played for two years. For some years, he then made guest appearances in primetime series such as Cannon, Nakia, Barnaby Jones, Hawaii Five-O, and The Waltons, as well as appearing in several made-for-TV movies such as The Hatfields and the McCoys with Jack Palance, Addie and the King of Hearts with Jason Robards, Last of the Belles with Susan Sarandon, and the 1978 TV movie Deadman’s Curve in which he portrayed Jan Berry of the musical duo Jan and Dean.[3]

In 1976, Hatch gained his first major television role as Inspector Dan Robbins on the detective series The Streets of San Francisco, a replacement for Michael Douglas (who had played Inspector Steve Keller) who had left the series that year.[4] Though the role was for only one season, Hatch won Germany’s Bravo Youth Magazine Award for the role.[5] Following this, he had a recurring role on the series Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, also for one season.

Hatch then gained a starring role in Glen A. Larson‘s sci-fi series, Battlestar Galactica (1978), which aired for a single season before cancellation. Hatch was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the role.[4][5] Hatch led an effort to revive the series. However, his vision was ultimately passed over in favor of Ronald D. Moore‘s re-imagined Battlestar Galactica in which Hatch guest starred as Tom Zarek.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Hatch made guest appearances on such series as Hotel, Murder, She Wrote, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Baywatch, Dynasty, and MacGyver.[6] In 1990, Hatch returned to daytime soap operas and appeared on Santa Barbara, originating the character Steven Slade.[7] His next prominent role would be as Tom Zarek in the reimagined version of Battlestar Galactica, in which he made semi-regular appearances from 2004 to 2009.[4]

In 2013, Hatch made his guest appearance in an adult-oriented episode of The Eric Andre Show on Cartoon Network‘s Adult Swim.

Films[edit]

Hatch made several low-key theatrical film releases, including Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen (1981)[8] and Prisoners of the Lost Universe (1983).[9] An abridged version of the pilot episode of Battlestar Galactica was released in cinemas, initially overseas and then for a limited run in the U.S., as was a sequel film, Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack, which was also made from episodes of the series.[10][11] He starred with Leif Garrett in Party Line (1988).

Battlestar Galactica revival attempt[edit]

Hatch attempted to revive Battlestar Galactica. In the 1990s, he began writing novels based on the series, and also wrote, co-directed and executive-produced a trailer called The Second Coming in the hopes of enticing Universal Studios (the rights holders for the franchise) into producing a new series that would have been a direct continuation of the original 1978 series (ignoring the events of the failed spin-off Galactica 1980, in which Hatch did not appear). Original actors John Colicos (Baltar), Terry Carter (Col. Tigh) and Jack Stauffer (Bojay) appeared in the trailer with Hatch. Although the trailer won acclaim at science-fiction conventions, Universal was not interested in Hatch’s vision to revive Battlestar Galactica, and instead opted for a remake, rather than the sequel for which Hatch had campaigned. Hatch, who reportedly remortgaged his house to make the trailer, was bitterly disappointed by this turn of events and was highly critical of the prospective new series.[12]

In 2004, he stated to Sci-Fi Pulse that he had felt resentment over the failure of his planned Galactica continuation and was left “exhausted and sick … I had, over the past several years, bonded deeply with the original characters and story … writing the novels and the comic books and really campaigning to bring back the show”.[13]

Battlestar Galactica re-imagining[edit]

Despite his resentment, Hatch developed a respect for Ronald D. Moore, the new series’ writer and producer, when Moore appeared as a featured guest at Galacticon (the Battlestar Galactica 25th anniversary convention, hosted by Hatch) and answered questions posed by a very hostile audience.[13] Later, in 2004, Hatch was offered a recurring role in the new Battlestar Galactica series, which he accepted. He played Tom Zarek, a terrorist turned politician who spent twenty years in prison for blowing up a government building. After Zarek’s death, Hatch commented that “never did I play this character as a villain nor did I think he was one and I still feel that way”, and that he considered the character to be a principled figure who is driven to violence after being “blocked in every way possible” by Roslin and Adama.[14] “Zarek, Adama and Roslin all wanted power for the same reason, to make a positive difference.”[14]

Other work[edit]

Alongside his attempts to revive the original Battlestar Galactica, Hatch created his own space opera entitled The Great War of Magellan.[15]

Hatch portrayed Jan Berry in the 1978 television biopic “Deadman’s Curve”, which depicted the lives of rock and roll musicians Jan and Dean. Hatch also appeared in InAlienable, a 2008 science fiction film written and produced by Walter Koenig. In 2011, Hatch worked on a new reality TV series called Who the Frak?, which he created and appeared in as himself. The series was touted as “the world’s first social network reality drama”. In 2012–13, Hatch appeared in the web series The Silicon Assassin Project. In 2013, he ventured into the Steampunk genre, starring in the short film Cowboys & Engines alongside Malcolm McDowell and Walter Koenig.[16] In 2014, he played the Klingon Commander Kharn in the Star Trek fan film Prelude To Axanar and was to appear in the subsequent fan production Star Trek: Axanar in 2015.[17]

Writing[edit]

With various co-authors, Hatch wrote a series of seven tie-in novels set in the original Battlestar Galactica universe.[18]

  1. Armageddon (August 1, 1997)[19]
  2. Warhawk (September 1, 1998)[20]
  3. Resurrection (July 1, 2001)[21]
  4. Rebellion (July 1, 2002)[22]
  5. Paradis (July 1, 2003)[23]
  6. Destiny (June 29, 2004)[24]
  7. Redemption (November 25, 2005)[25]

Death[edit]

Hatch died on February 7, 2017 from pancreatic cancer under hospice care in Los Angeles, aged 71.[2][26] He is survived by his brother John and his son Paul.[1]

The Jay Roach-directed film is the highest grossing politically themed movie of all time.[3] In 2014, she played Becky in Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy, and directed by Ben Falcone.

Nicole Richie (born Nicole Camille Escovedo; September 21, 1981) is an American fashion designer, author, actress and television personality. Richie rose to prominence for her role in the Fox reality television series, The Simple Life, alongside her childhood best friend and fellow socialite Paris Hilton, which lasted five seasons. The Simple Life was a hit for the Fox network, premiering with 13 million viewers.[2] Richie’s personal life attracted significant media attention during The Simple Life’s five-year run, and she was a constant fixture of tabloid journalism before and after her appearance.

Richie is married to musician Joel Madden and they have two children, Harlow and Sparrow. Richie and Madden founded “The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation” in 2010.[3] Richie has starred as one of the three mentors on NBC‘s Fashion Star. In July 2014, Richie’s reality show Candidly Nicole premiered on VH1. The show was renewed for a second season which premiered in July 2015.[4]

Early life[edit]

Richie was born in Berkeley, California, and has Mexican, English, and African-American ancestry.[1][5][6] Her biological father is Peter Michael Escovedo, who is the brother of Sheila E,[7] and her biological mother is Karen Moss. When she was three years old, her biological parents agreed to let her move in with Lionel Richie because they could not afford to provide for her financially. “My parents were friends with Lionel,” she told People in 2003. “They trusted that they would be better able to provide for me.”[8] Initially, Lionel Richie became her guardian.[9]

Lionel Richie and his wife Brenda Harvey legally adopted Nicole when she was nine. Shortly after the adoption was formalized, Lionel’s affair with another woman became public knowledge.[10] Lionel and Brenda went through a bitter public split; as a result, they indulged Nicole’s every whim. “Their way of making me happy was to say, ‘yes,’ to everything I wanted, but I don’t think a little girl should have that much freedom,” said Richie in an interview with Vanity Fair.[11] Following the divorce, Lionel remarried and had two more children: Myles (b. 1994) and Sofia (b. 1998).[12]

Richie’s godmother is Nancy Davis, daughter of Marvin Davis and mother of Brandon Davis. Michael Jackson was Richie’s godfather.[13] Quincy Jones said in a People magazine interview that he has “known Nicole Richie since she was a baby. She’s a very smart girl”.[14]

Richie graduated from Montclair College Preparatory School in 1999, then attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, alongside Kourtney Kardashian and Luke Walton, where she studied Arts and Media. She did not have a definitive study plan in Arizona, and eventually dropped out after two years and returned to California.[13]

Career[edit]

Television[edit]

Main article: The Simple Life

In 2003, Richie and her then-best friend Paris Hilton starred in the reality series The Simple Life, in which they lived for a month with a family in the rural community of Altus, Arkansas. The series premiere debuted on Fox on December 2, 2003, to 13 million viewers, increasing Fox’s reach among viewers 18–49.[2] The series continued for a second and third season.[15]

Fox subsequently cancelled the show after a dispute between Hilton and Richie, but it was aired by E! Entertainment Television for its fourth season, drawing nearly one million viewers and was followed by a relatively unsuccessful fifth season.[16] Complications arose during production of the fifth season, with both Richie and Hilton facing major charges for DUI, and at risk of serving jail time. Hilton was sentenced to 23 days in jail, though this was after production of the season had finished.[17] Richie accepted a plea agreement and was sentenced to four days in jail, again after production had wrapped.[18] Despite talks of a sixth season,[19] the series finished its run at the end of the moderately unsuccessful fifth season.[20][21]

In 2005, Richie made her acting debut in the comedic drama Kids in America. Richie has guest starred in television series including Eve, Six Feet Under and American Dreams, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, and playing the recurring character Heather Chandler on Chuck.[22] In July 2008, plans were announced to turn Richie’s 2005 novel, The Truth About Diamonds, into a television series.[23]

On January 1, 2010, it was announced that Richie would appear as a guest judge on Project Runway.[24]

In early 2016, Richie auditioned for a role in the upcoming NBC sitcom, Great News, created by Tracey Wigfield and produced by Wigfield and Tina Fey, which is set in the world of television news. Although Richie’s audition was not successful, she was later brought in to replace Kimrie Lewis-Davis in the supporting role of Portia, an anchorwoman at the news channel depicted in the series. The show’s producers had initially cast Lewis-Davis as Portia, but decided to go in a different direction with the character after seeing the results of the pilot episode.[25] When speaking about casting Richie in her first scripted series-regular television role, Fey explained: “She’s a really funny person and has an instant likability. Those are instincts you can’t teach. People have it or not. She has good timing without really pushing it.”[26]

Writing[edit]

In 2005, Richie wrote a semi-autobiographical novel, The Truth About Diamonds, which was released by Bharell Jackson Publishing. The novel is loosely based on her life, but is mostly fictional. It chronicles the life of Chloe Parker, a singer’s adopted daughter who makes her way through all the popular nightclubs and parties in Hollywood while battling a drug addiction.[27] In early January 2006, The Truth About Diamonds peaked at number No. 32 in Hardcover Fiction on The New York Times Best-Seller List.[28]

Richie’s second novel, Priceless, was released on September 28, 2010.[29] It tells the story of a girl who loses everything and then learns about what really matters in life.[30]

Fashion[edit]

Richie’s own personal style has become popular among fans and fashion critics and has led to her status as a fashion impresario and icon.[31] She has been the face of Bongo Jeans and Jimmy Choo advertising campaigns. In April 2007, Richie announced plans to start a jewelry, accessories, and sunglasses line along with a perfume and style book.[32] In October 2008, she debuted a jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960.[33] The line became available at Kitson’s online boutique.[34] In spring 2010, the line was extended to include apparel and shoes.[35] In 2009, Richie joined maternity store A Pea in the Pod to create the new collection maternity clothes.[36] The line was titled “Nicole” which had pieces that she would wear as an expectant mother.[37] In February 2010, Richie expanded her fashion business with a women’s line called Winter Kate, her daughter’s two middle names. The collection was inspired by timeless prints and shapes, beautiful paisley and florals.[38]

In 2010, she won “Entrepreneur of the Year” for her House of Harlow 1960 brand at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.[39] House of Harlow 1960 was also nominated in the category “Celebrity Fashion Line” at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards.[40] In July 2011, it was reported that Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 line has unveiled a 14-piece handbag collection. The House of Harlow 1960 handbag collection will be available at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Shopbop.com.[41] In July 2011, it was announced that Richie would be one of the three mentors in NBC’s new reality show Fashion Star alongside Jessica Simpson. Richie guided aspiring designers who hope to become the next big brand in fashion.[42][43] She launched a collection for Macy’s Impulse line in September 2012, which was sold in 100 Macy’s stores as well as online.[44] Her first fragrance, Nicole, was also launched in September 2012.[45]

Music[edit]

Richie made her musical debut in February 2005 with a live appearance on ABC‘s The View playing the piano.[46] Although widely speculated that Richie is working on an album, she denied such rumors to People. She was quoted as saying, “I do eventually [want to record an album], but right now I have a lot on my plate”.[47] In February 2010, Richie was featured on the charity single “We Are the World 25 for Haiti“. “I was four years old in a studio, watching my dad record “We Are the World” and today I get to do it again. Excited to help make a change,” she later said of the experience.[48]

In 2004, she auditioned for the part of Maureen in the popular Broadway hit Rent but did not get the part.[49] In 2008, she was offered the lead role in the musical Chicago as Roxie Hart.[50]

In September 2013, Richie made a cameo appearance in Christina Aguilera‘s music video for the song “Let There Be Love“.[51]

Personal life[edit]

In April 2005, reports surfaced that Richie and longtime friend Paris Hilton were no longer speaking. Hilton commented: “It’s no big secret that Nicole and I are no longer friends. Nicole knows what she did, and that’s all I’m ever going to say about it.”[52] Neither Richie nor Hilton spoke publicly about the cause of the split. They eventually reconciled in October 2006.[53] She dated DJ Adam Goldstein from 2003 to 2005 but broke up after a nine-month engagement.[54]

Richie began dating Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden in December 2006.[55] They have two children, daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden (born 2008) and son Sparrow James Midnight Madden (born 2009).[56][57] In February 2008 the first photos of Harlow were sold to People magazine for $1 million.[58] The couple confirmed their engagement in February 2010,[59] and married on December 11, 2010. Because of Madden’s commitments to The Voice Australia Richie re-located to Sydney, Australia with her husband and children in 2012.[60]

Health[edit]

In early 2006, Richie was notably thinner compared to her previous appearance in the first two seasons of The Simple Life.[61] In May she told Vanity Fair, “I know I’m too thin right now, so I wouldn’t want any young girl looking at me and saying, ‘That’s what I want to look like.'”[62] She also said, “I started seeing a nutritionist and a doctor. I was scared that it could be something more serious.”[63] During this time it was reported that she had also sought the help of a psychiatrist and a personal trainer.[64] Later that year, in September, Richie stated “I am not anorexic. I am not bulimic. I do not have an eating disorder.”[64] On October 27, 2006, it was announced that Richie was seeking treatment for “an inability to put on weight”, though it is not treatment for an eating disorder.[64]

In March 2007, Richie was taken to the hospital for dehydration. On March 21, her representatives announced she was diagnosed with hypoglycemia.[65]

Legal issues[edit]

In October 2002, Richie was arrested following a brawl in a New York City nightclub. The charges were dropped.[66]

On February 27, 2003, when Richie was arrested in Malibu, California for driving with a revoked license and possession of heroin, she checked herself into a rehabilitation center. In August 2003, she was sentenced to three years’ probation.[66]

On December 11, 2006, Richie was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after she failed a field sobriety test. She was charged with driving under the influence on State Route 134 in the Burbank/Glendale, California area. Several motorists had reported a black Mercedes-Benz G-Class entering the freeway on the exit ramp and traveling in the opposite traffic direction.[67] She admitted to using marijuana and the narcotic Vicodin before the incident.[67] On July 27, 2007, Richie was sentenced to four days in jail at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, California.[68] However, she only served about 82 minutes of the sentence and was released at 16:37 PDT on August 23, 2007.[69] A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department told People magazine that Richie “was released early due to overcrowding in the jail system. This is standard procedure for nonviolent offenders.” After spending 82 minutes in jail, Richie was “Of course pleasantly surprised to be released so quickly,” said her attorney.[70]

Richie enrolled in an 18-month anti-drinking driver education program, according to papers filed with the Superior Court of California.[71] On June 22, her probation was extended one year to March 2011 because she missed her anti-drinking driving class.[72] However, Richie’s probation was terminated early on December 29, 2010, after her lawyer presented details to the judge that Richie had completed all terms of her probation.[73]

Philanthropy[edit]

In November 2007, Richie and Joel Madden created “The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation”.[74] Richie, Joel and Benji Madden along with UNICEF held a fundraiser for the Tap Project in March 2009. They sold 143 water pumps to bring water directly to the villages and raised $100,000.[75] Esprit donated 10% of all the sales on April 2, 2009, at their newly opened 3rd Street Promenade store to The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation.[76] The Richie-Madden Foundation specially designed “Cup with a Cause” for 7-Eleven. It was a part of their charity-focused coffee campaign in February 2010.[77] During 2010 the Foundation worked together with Beyond Shelter, a non-profit organization devoted to providing shelter for homeless families in Los Angeles.[78]

In May 2008, Richie and Madden shot a UNICEF public-service announcement to generate aid for the cyclone-devastated Myanmar.[79] Richie and Madden have also written blogs on the UNICEF website and encouraged people to help children in need.[80]

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Briga Heelan
Born (1987-04-02) April 2, 1987 (age 30)
Andover, Massachusetts, U.S.
Residence Los Angeles, California, U.S.
Occupation Actress, comedian
Years active 2009–present
Spouse(s) Rene Gube (m. 2015)

Briga Heelan (pronunciation /ˈbrɡɑː/ BREE-gah;[1] born April 2, 1987[2][better source needed]) is an American actress and comedian. She is best known for her work on the sitcoms Cougar Town, Ground Floor, and Undateable.

Early life[edit]

Heelan was born in Andover, Massachusetts,[3] the daughter of actress and Lowell Public Schools teacher Kimball Heelan and playwright Kevin Heelan.[1][4] She has a brother named Conor.[4] Heelan’s father, as well as being a dramatist, has been a faculty member at Phillips Andover Academy since 1983.[5] Her parents met when her father was getting his Master’s degree at Smith College.[4]

Heelan attended Walnut Hill School for the Arts and studied for a year at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, before transferring to the University of Southern California.[1]

Career[edit]

Heelan initially thought she was going to be in musical theatre.[6] She first met her Ground Floor co-star, Skylar Astin, at a musical theatre convention.[6]

Heelan’s break-out TV role was on Cougar Town.[7] She is credited as being a recurring character on Undateable and appears in three episodes plus the pilot. She was able to shoot both Bill Lawrence-helmed Ground Floor and Undateable simultaneously [8] because both comedies are multi-camera, which require fewer production days than single-camera days.[9]

On Heelan’s role in Ground Floor, TV critic Alan Sepinwall said Heelan is “simply terrific as Jenny: warm and quirky while always feeling like a strong and independent character”.[10][11] The Los Angeles Times said Heelan “makes Ground Floor watchable”, describing her as “remarkably alive and in the moment; she makes real all that she touches. I could easily recommend tuning in just to watch her work – and hereby do.”[12]

Personal life[edit]

Heelan currently lives in Los Angeles, California.[1]

On her unusual name, she said, “It’s an Irish name. In fact, my last name was O’Heelahan back in the day. And Briga, I read somewhere, is some pagan Celtic goddess, which sounds great, so I really like saying that. But I was named after my grandmother’s best friend, who was Irish and came from Dublin.”[1]

On October 16, 2014, Heelan became engaged to her Ground Floor co-star Rene Gube.[13] They were married on May 8, 2015.[14][15] On October 31, 2016, it was announced they are expecting their first child, a daughter, due in March 2017.[16]

Milena MarkovnaMilaKunis (/ˈmlə ˈknɪs/) (born August 14, 1983) is an American actress. In 1991, at the age of seven, she moved from Ukraine to Los Angeles with her family. After being enrolled in acting classes as an after-school activity, she was soon discovered by an agent. She appeared in several television series and commercials, before acquiring her first significant role prior to her 15th birthday, playing Jackie Burkhart on the television series That ’70s Show. Since 1999, she has voiced Meg Griffin on the animated series Family Guy.

Her breakout film role came in 2008,[1][2] playing Rachel in the romantic comedy-drama Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Her other films include the neo-noir action film Max Payne (2008), the post-apocalyptic action film The Book of Eli (2010), the romantic comedy Friends with Benefits (2011), the comedy Ted (2012), the fantasy Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) as the Wicked Witch of the West, and the drama Black Swan (2010), in which her performance gained her worldwide accolades, including the Premio Marcello Mastroianni for Best Young Actor or Actress, and nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

Early life and education

Milena Markovna Kunis was born on August 14, 1983 in Chernivtsi, Ukraine in the Soviet Union.[3] Her mother, Elvira, is a physics teacher who runs a pharmacy, and her father, Mark Kunis, is a mechanical engineer who works as a cab driver.[4] Kunis has an elder brother named Michael.[5][6] She stated in 2011 that her parents had “amazing jobs”, and that the family was “very lucky” and “not poor”; they had decided to leave the USSR because they saw “no future” there for Kunis and her brother.[7] In 1991, when she was seven years old, her family moved to Los Angeles, California, with $250. “That was all we were allowed to take with us. My parents had given up good jobs and degrees, which were not transferable. We arrived in New York on a Wednesday and by Friday morning my brother and I were at school in LA.”[7]

Kunis comes from a Jewish family and has cited antisemitism in the former Soviet Union as one of several reasons for her family’s move to the United States.[8][9][10] She has stated that her parents “raised [her] Jewish as much as they could,” although religion was suppressed in the Soviet Union.[8] On her second day in Los Angeles, Kunis was enrolled at Rosewood Elementary School, not knowing a word of English. She later recalled: “I blocked out second grade completely. I have no recollection of it. I always talk to my mom and my grandma about it. It was because I cried every day. I didn’t understand the culture. I didn’t understand the people. I didn’t understand the language. My first sentence of my essay to get into college was like, ‘Imagine being blind and deaf at age seven.’ And that’s kind of what it felt like moving to the States.”[11]

In Los Angeles, she attended Hubert Howe Bancroft Middle School.[12] She used an on-set tutor for most of her high school years while filming That ’70s Show.[13] She briefly attended Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies (LACES), but when that school proved to be insufficiently flexible about her acting commitments, she transferred to Fairfax High School,[14] from which she graduated in 2001.[9] She briefly attended UCLA and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.[5][15]

Career

1994–2000: Career beginnings and television work

At age nine, Kunis was enrolled by her father in acting classes after school at the Beverly Hills Studios, where she met Susan Curtis, who would become her manager.[16][17] On her first audition she landed the role for a Barbie commercial.[18] Shortly after, she did a commercial for the Lisa Frank product line.[19][20] Her first television roles took place in 1994, first appearing on Days of Our Lives,[21][22] and a few months later doing her first of two appearances on Baywatch.[23] She had a minor role on 7th Heaven[13] and supporting roles in Santa with Muscles, Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, and the Angelina Jolie film Gia, as the young Gia Carangi.[5]

At the age of 10, Kunis auditioned for but failed to get the role of a Russian Jewish girl who moves to America in the film Make a Wish, Molly.[24] Instead, she was cast in the secondary role of a Mexican girl.[14] In 1998, Kunis was cast as Jackie Burkhart in the Fox sitcom That ’70s Show. All who auditioned were required to be at least 18 years old; Kunis, who was 14 at the time, told the casting directors she would be 18 but did not say when. Though they eventually figured it out, the producers still thought Kunis was the best fit for the role.[17] That ’70s Show ran for eight seasons.[25] She won two consecutive Young Star Awards as Best Young Actress in a Comedy TV Series in 1999 and 2000 for her performances.[26]

In 1999, Kunis replaced Lacey Chabert in the role of Meg Griffin on the animated sitcom Family Guy,[27] created by Seth MacFarlane for Fox. Kunis won the role after auditions and a slight rewrite of the character, in part due to her performance on That ’70s Show.[28] When Kunis auditioned for the role, she was called back by MacFarlane, who instructed her to speak slower. He then told her to come back another time and enunciate more. Once she claimed that she had it under control, MacFarlane hired her.[28] MacFarlane added: “What Mila Kunis brought to it was in a lot of ways, I thought, almost more right for the character. I say that Lacey did a phenomenal job, but there was something about Mila – something very natural about Mila. She was 15 when she started, so you were listening to a 15-year-old. Oftentimes with animation they’ll have adult actors doing the voices of teenagers and they always sound like Saturday morning voices. They sound oftentimes very forced. She had a very natural quality to Meg that really made what we did with that character kind of really work.”[29] Kunis was nominated for an Annie Award in the category of Voice Acting in an Animated Television Production in 2007.[30] She also voiced Meg in the Family Guy Video Game!. Kunis described her character as “the scapegoat.”[31]

2001–2008: Transition to film

In 2001, she appeared in Get Over It opposite Kirsten Dunst. She followed that up in 2002, by starring in the straight-to-DVD horror film American Psycho 2 alongside William Shatner, a sequel to the 2000 film American Psycho. American Psycho 2 was panned by critics,[32] and later, Kunis herself expressed embarrassment over the film.[33] In 2004, Kunis starred in the film adaptation Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding. Although the film was shot in 2004, it did not have a theatrical release until 2007.[34] Most critics did not like the film, which mustered a 25% approval from Rotten Tomatoes.[35] DVD talk concluded that “fans would be much better off pretending the movie never happened in the first place”.[36]

In 2005, Kunis co-starred with Jon Heder in Moving McAllister, which was not released theatrically until 2007.[37] The film received generally poor reviews and had a limited two-week run in theaters.[38][39] She followed up with After Sex starring alongside Zoe Saldana, who had also appeared in Get Over It.[40] In October 2006, she began filming Boot Camp (originally titled Straight Edge).[41] The film was not released in theatres in the United States, but was released on DVD on August 25, 2009.[42]

Kunis at the Max Payne premiere in 2008

Kunis starred as Rachel Jansen in the 2008 comedy film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, co-produced by Judd Apatow. The role, which she won after unsuccessfully auditioning for Knocked Up,[2] entailed improvisation on her part.[43] The film garnered positive reviews,[44] and was a commercial success, grossing $105 million worldwide.[45] Kunis’s performance was well-received; Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal praised her “fresh beauty and focused energy”,[46] while James Berardinelli wrote that she is “adept with her performance and understands the concept of comic timing”.[47] She was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.[48] In an interview, Kunis credited Apatow with helping her to expand her career from That ’70s Show.[2]

Also in 2008, Kunis portrayed Mona Sax, an assassin, alongside Mark Wahlberg in the action film Max Payne, based on the video game of the same name. Kunis underwent training in guns, boxing, and martial arts for her role.[49] Max Payne was relatively successful at the box office, grossing $85 million worldwide[50] but was panned by critics,[51] with several reviewers calling Kunis miscast.[52][53] Travis Estvold of Boise Weekly wrote that she was “horribly miscast as some sort of undersized, warble-voiced crime boss”.[54] Director John Moore defended his choice of Kunis saying, “Mila just bowled us over….. She wasn’t an obvious choice, but she just wears Mona so well. We needed someone who would not be just a fop or foil to Max; we needed somebody who had to be that character and convey her own agenda. I think Mila just knocked it out of the park.”[49] She was nominated for another Teen Choice Award for her role in the film.[55]

2009–2012: Film breakthrough and acclaim

In 2009, she appeared in the comedy film Extract with Ben Affleck and Jason Bateman. The film received mostly positive reviews,[56] and grossed $10.8 million at the box office.[57] Roger Ebert, while critical of the film itself, wrote that Kunis “brings her role to within shouting distance of credibility.”[58] Director Mike Judge commented that part of what was surprising to learn about Kunis was her ability to make references to the cult animation film Rejected. Judge said: “As beautiful as Mila is, you could believe that maybe she would cross paths with you in the real world.”[59] After seeing Kunis perform in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Judge wanted to cast her in the role of Cindy in Extract: “I just thought, ‘Wow, this girl’s perfect.’ And she really wanted to do it, which was fantastic.” Kunis herself stated that “I’m a huge fan of Mike Judge’s from Office Space, so I was, like, ‘Okay, this is a very easy decision.’ I told them I would do anything needed to be in this production– like craft service, or, say, acting.”[60]

Kunis on a Family Guy panel at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2009

In 2010, she starred alongside Denzel Washington in the action film The Book of Eli. Although the film received mixed reviews,[61] it performed well at the box office, grossing over $157 million worldwide.[62] Film critic Richard Roeper praised Kunis’s performance, calling it a “particularly strong piece of work”.[63] Several other reviews were equally positive, including that of Pete Hammond of Boxoffice magazine, who wrote that she’s “ideally cast in the key female role”[64] Even reviewers who didn’t necessarily like the film complimented her performance, such as James Berardinelli, who wrote that “the demands of the role prove to be within her range, which is perhaps surprising considering she has been thus far pigeonholed into more lightweight parts”,[65] and Colin Covert of the Star Tribune, who wrote that she “generated a spark and brought a degree of determination to her character, developing an independent female character who’s not always in need of rescuing.”[66] Other critics, such as Claudia Puig of USA Today felt she was miscast, noting that “she looked as if she dropped in from a Ray-Ban commercial”.[67][68][69] Kunis received another Teen Choice Award nomination for her performance.[70][71] Kunis was also cast in a minor role in the 2010 comedy film Date Night, starring Tina Fey and Steve Carell.[72] She garnered several positive reviews for her performance.[73][74][75] Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune concluded her performance with James Franco helped save the film and gave it “a shot in the arm.”[76]

Kunis was nominated for multiple awards, including her first Golden Globe, for the 2010 film Black Swan. She played a rival ballet dancer to the main character, played by Natalie Portman. Director Darren Aronofsky cast Kunis in the film based on her performance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and on the recommendation of co-star and close friend Natalie Portman.[24][77] She underwent a training regimen that included cardiovascular exercise, a 1,200-calorie a day diet (she lost 20 pounds that she regained after filming ended), and ballet classes for four hours a day, seven days a week.[1][78][79] During the demanding production, she suffered injuries including a torn ligament and a dislocated shoulder.[80] Black Swan received widespread acclaim from critics[81] and was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture.[82] The film grossed over $106.9 million in the United States and Canada[83] while grossing over $329 million worldwide.[84] Reviews of Kunis’s performance were positive,[85][86][87] with Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter stating, “Kunis makes a perfect alternate to Portman, equally as lithe and dark but a smirk of self-assurance in place of Portman’s wide-eyed fearfulness.”[88] Guy Lodge of In Contention also praised Kunis, saying, “it’s the cool, throaty-voiced Kunis who is the surprise package here, intelligently watching and reflecting her co-star in such a manner that we’re as uncertain as Nina of her ingenuousness.”[89] Kunis’s performance won her the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress at the 67th Venice International Film Festival,[90] and earned her Golden Globe Award[91] and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress.[92] At the 37th annual Saturn Awards, she was also honored with the Best Supporting Actress award for her performance.[93]

Kunis was cast alongside Justin Timberlake in the 2011 romantic comedy Friends with Benefits.[94] Director Will Gluck stated that he wrote the story with Kunis and Timberlake in mind.[95] Friends with Benefits achieved success at the box office, grossing over $149 million worldwide,[96] and received mostly positive reviews with critics praising the chemistry between Kunis and Timberlake.[97] Manohla Dargis of The New York Times wrote that “Ms. Kunis is fast proving that she’s a gift that keeps giving to mainstream romantic comedy” and “her energy is so invigorating and expansive and her presence so vibrant that she fills the screen”.[98]

In 2012, Kunis co-starred with Mark Wahlberg in Ted, her most commercially successful film to date. The film was directed and co-written by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. Kunis played the girlfriend of Wahlberg’s character. When MacFarlane first conceived the project, he considered Kunis too young for the role. However, the film remained in development for several years and when it was finally ready to begin production, he ended up casting her.[99] Ted has received generally positive reviews from critics[100] and was a commercial success, grossing $549 million worldwide.[101] Drew McWeeny of HitFix wrote that Kunis “brings some lovely subtle grace notes to a role that easily could have just been ‘the pushy girlfriend'”.[102]

2013–present: Future projects

In 2013, Kunis played Theodora, the youngest of three witches, opposite James Franco, in the Walt Disney Pictures‘ prequel, Oz the Great and Powerful.[103][104] She dedicated her performance in the film to Margaret Hamilton, the original Wicked Witch of the West in the 1939 film.[105] The film, and Kunis’s performance, received mixed reviews from critics.[106] Kim Newman of Empire Magazine wrote that Kunis “walks away with the honours as the wavering witch Theodora, whose heartbreak brings another, less-expected depth to this 3D spectacle”.[107] In contrast, Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter found Kunis’s performance to be uncertain as her character seemed to be in a state of limbo.[108] Oz the Great and Powerful was a commercial success, grossing over $493 million worldwide.[109]

Also in 2013 Kunis co-starred in the crime thriller Blood Ties with Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, and Marion Cotillard.[110] The film premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and had a limited release in the United States in 2014.[111] Blood Ties received mixed reviews.[112] Kunis was also cast in the comedy The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, alongside Robin Williams and Peter Dinklage.[113] The film had a limited theatrical and VOD release [114] and received poor reviews.[115] The Paul Haggis-directed film Third Person co-starring with Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde and James Franco[116] premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival[117] and had a limited release in 2014, but also received mostly negative reviews.[118] Kunis’ performance was praised by some critics; Deborah Young of The Hollywood Reporter wrote that her role gives her “enormous room to express her talent” and she “gives her story a shot of raw intensity”.[119]

Kunis is set to be an executive producer for a feminist-themed TV series for the CW network. Meridian Hills, is a drama about the women’s liberation movement in the 1970s. She will not appear on-screen.[120][121][122] In October 2014 it was announced Kunis, along with her partners, had launched a new production company called Orchard Farm Productions. The company has a first-look deal with ABC Studios, where the company is based. Under the agreement, the team will develop and produce TV projects for broadcast and cable.[123]

In 2015, Kunis co-starred with Channing Tatum in the science fiction film Jupiter Ascending, directed by the Wachowskis.[124][125] While the film grossed over $183.9 million on a $176 million budget,[126] it received mostly negative reviews, with a consensus that the production was “narratively befuddled” and a “visually thrilling misfire”.[127]

Kunis co-starred with Kristen Bell and Christina Applegate in the comedy Bad Moms, which was released July 29, 2016.[128] It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the cast and humor, though did not feel it could “take full advantage of its assets”.[129] Chris Nashawaty from Entertainment Weekly wrote that “Kunis manages to be both sympathetic and funny, and she has crack comedic timing”.[130] The film went on to earn more than $183.9 million with a budget of $20 million.[131] Following its financial success, STX Entertainment announced a sequel that reunites Kunis with her co-stars Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. A Bad Moms Christmas is scheduled to be released November 3, 2017.[132]

In the media

In 2007, Kunis participated in a video for the website Funny or Die appearing alongside James Franco. The video was a parody of the MTV show The Hills and was a huge success for the website, with well over one million views.[133] Shawn Levy, director of Date Night, stated that part of what made him decide to cast Kunis with James Franco in the film was the chemistry he felt they had in the Funny or Die video.[134] In December 2008, Kunis was featured in Gap’s “Shine Your Own Star” Christmas campaign.[135]

In 2010, she was featured in the “Women We Love” segment in Esquire with an accompanied video.[136] Kunis was among several female stars photographed by Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams in conjunction with the Calvin Klein Collections for a feature titled American Women 2010, with the proceeds from the photographs donated to the NYC AIDS foundation.[137] During the summer of 2010 Kunis served with Randy Jackson as the Master of Ceremonies for the 9th Annual Chrysalis Foundation Benefit. The Chrysalis Foundation is a Los Angeles-based non-profit organization formed to help economically disadvantaged and homeless individuals to become self-sufficient through employment opportunities.[138]

GQ magazine named Kunis the Knockout of the Year for 2011,[139] with Men’s Health naming her one of the “100 Hottest Women of All-Time”.[140] FHM magazine ranked her number 9 on its 2012 Hot 100 list,[141] but she reached number 1 on their 2013 “100 Sexiest Women in the World” list,[142][143] which brought to an end a four-year run by British women.[144]

Prior to this in 2008 Kunis stated, “You’ve got to base your career on something other than being FHM’s top 100 number one girl. Your looks are going to die out, and then what’s going to be left?”[11] Maxim has consistently ranked Kunis on its Hot 100 list, reaching a ranking of number 5 in both 2009 and 2011[145] and number 3 in 2012.[146][147] Esquire magazine named her 2012’s Sexiest Woman Alive.[148] She ranked #2 on AskMen‘s list of Top 99 Women for 2013, behind only Jennifer Lawrence.[149] In 2013, she responded to those lists: “All I can say is, I feel honored to be considered sexy.”[150]

Christian Dior signed Kunis in 2012 to be the face of its Spring fashion campaign.[151][152] In February 2013, she was named Gemfields global brand ambassador and the face of their advertising campaign.[153] Gemfields is a luxury company that produces emeralds, rubies, and amethysts. She visited Gemfields’ mine in Zambia.[154] Kunis appeared wearing Gemfields’s Rubies for the world premiere of Jupiter Ascending.[155]

In 2013, she appeared in Forbes list of 100 powerful celebrities, ranking #89 on the basis of five criteria (Money, TV/Radio, Press, Social, and Marketability), with her highest ranking as #14 in marketability. She earned $11 million for the year ending in June 2013.[156]

In 2014, Kunis appeared in a range of global advertising for Beam, Inc. (makers of Jim Beam bourbon).[157]

Personal life

On September 14, 2011, the FBI announced it was investigating the alleged hacking of Kunis’s cellphone and email accounts, along with those of other celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson and Vanessa Hudgens.[158][159][160] Christopher Chaney from Jacksonville, Florida, later pleaded guilty in federal court to nine counts of computer hacking.[161]

In November 2011, Kunis was escorted by Sgt. Scott Moore to a United States Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, North Carolina. Kunis had accepted Moore’s invitation in July after he posted it as a YouTube video while serving with the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, in Afghanistan’s Helmand province. The event celebrated the Marine Corps’ 236th anniversary.[162]

Kunis attending the Marine Corps Ball in 2011

Kunis supports the Democratic Party and Barack Obama.[163] In a 2012 interview, she criticized the Republican Party, saying: “The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me. And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time?”[148]

Health

In January 2011, she revealed her struggle with chronic iritis that had caused temporary blindness in one eye. Some months earlier she had surgery that had corrected the problem.[164] Kunis also has heterochromia iridum, a condition in which the irises are different colors. One eye (left) is brown, and the other (right) is green.[142][165]

Relationships

Kunis began dating actor Macaulay Culkin in 2002.[166][167] During their relationship, there were rumors of the couple getting married, but Kunis denied them.[168] In an interview with BlackBook magazine, Kunis stated that marriage is “not something that’s important to me”.[169] Kunis said she tried her best to protect her and Culkin’s privacy, noting that “We don’t talk about it to the press. It’s already more high profile than I want it to be.”[170] When asked if it was difficult to stay out of the tabloids and press, Kunis responded: “I keep my personal life as personal as I physically, mentally, possibly can.” Asked if that is difficult she said, “I don’t care. I will go to my grave trying. It is hard, but I’ll end up going to a bar that’s a hole in the wall. I won’t go to the ‘it’s-happening’ place.”[171] On January 3, 2011, Kunis’ publicist confirmed reports that Kunis and Culkin had ended their relationship, saying “The split was amicable, and they remain close friends.”[166]

Kunis began dating her former That ’70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher in April 2012,[172][173] and they became engaged in February 2014.[174] She gave birth to their daughter Wyatt Isabelle in October 2014.[175][176] Kunis married Kutcher during the first weekend of July 2015, in Oak Glen, California.[177] She gave birth to a son named Dimitri Portwood Kutcher in November 2016.[178]

Born Abigail Kathleen Breslin
(1996-04-14) April 14, 1996 (age 21)
New York City, New York, U.S.
Occupation Actress, singer
Years active 2002–present
Relatives Spencer Breslin (brother)

Abigail Kathleen Breslin (born April 14, 1996)[1] is an American actress and singer. She appeared in her first commercial when she was three years old, and in her first film, Signs (2002), at the age of five.[2] Her other film roles include Little Miss Sunshine (2006), for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress,[3] No Reservations (2007), Nim’s Island (2008), Definitely, Maybe (2008), My Sister’s Keeper (2009), Zombieland (2009), and Rango (2011). In September 2015, she began acting in the horror-comedy Scream Queens on Fox, in which she has her first regular role on a television series.

Early life

Breslin was born in New York City, the daughter of Kim (née Walsh) and Michael Breslin, a telecommunications expert, computer programmer, and consultant.[4] She has two older brothers, Ryan and Spencer, who are also actors.[5] The Breslin siblings live in New York in a “very close-knit” family. Her maternal grandmother, Catherine, died in June 2015.[6][7][7] She is named after Abigail Adams, the second First Lady of the United States.[8]

Career

Breslin’s career began at the age of three when she appeared in a Toys “R” Us commercial.[9] Her first acting role was in Signs (2002), directed by M. Night Shyamalan, where she played Bo Hess, the daughter of the main character, Graham Hess (Mel Gibson). Signs garnered mostly positive reviews[10] and was a box office success, grossing $408 million worldwide.[11] Breslin’s performance in the film was praised by critics.[12][13] David Ansen of Newsweek wrote that she and co-star Rory Culkin gave “terrifically natural, nuanced performances”.[14] In 2004, she appeared in Raising Helen, in which she and her brother Spencer played siblings, but the film fared poorly.[15]

Breslin had a small role in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. In the independent film Keane, she played Kira Bedik, a young girl who reminds the mentally disturbed protagonist William Keane (Damian Lewis) of his missing, abducted daughter. Keane had a limited theatrical release and grossed only $394,390 worldwide[16] but it received positive reviews and Breslin’s performance was praised by critics.[17][18] Meghan Keane of The New York Sun wrote that “the scenes between Mr. Lewis and the charmingly fragile Kira, winningly played by Ms. Breslin, bring a captivating humanity to the film”.[19]

Breslin’s breakthrough role was in the 2006 comedy-drama Little Miss Sunshine, where she played Olive Hoover, a beauty pageant contestant, the youngest in a dysfunctional family on a road trip. She was cast at the age of six, years before filming was started.[20] Her co-stars, Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin, both stated that they were “astounded by her seriousness of purpose during shooting.”[21] Little Miss Sunshine was a critical[22] and commercial success, grossing $100 million worldwide.[23] Her performance was highly praised;[24][25] Claudia Puig of USA Today wrote that, “If Olive had been played by any other little girl, she would not have affected us as mightily as [she] did.”[26] She received nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Award and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the fourth youngest actress to be nominated in that category.[27]

Abigail Breslin in January 2007

Although Jennifer Hudson won the Oscar, Breslin co-presented with actor Jaden Smith at the 79th Academy Awards on February 25, 2007.[28] Breslin was part of the Disney Year of a Million Dreams celebration. Annie Leibovitz photographed her as Fira from Disney Fairies with Dame Julie Andrews as the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio.[29]

On October 27, 2007, Breslin made her stage debut in the play Right You Are (If You Think You Are) in New York City at the Guggenheim Museum starring in an ensemble cast, including Cate Blanchett, Dianne Wiest, Natalie Portman and Peter Sarsgaard.[30] In 2007, Breslin was ranked #8 in Forbes Magazines list of “Young Hollywood’s Top-Earning Stars”, having earned $1.5 million in 2006.[31]

Breslin next appeared in the 2007 romantic comedy No Reservations, playing the niece of master chef Kate Armstrong (Catherine Zeta-Jones). The film garnered mostly negative reviews[32] but was successful at the box office, grossing $92 million worldwide.[33] Roger Ebert wrote that Breslin “has the stuff to emerge as a three-dimensional kid, if she weren’t employed so resolutely as a pawn.”[34] In 2007, she also starred in Definitely, Maybe, as the daughter of a recently divorced father (played by Ryan Reynolds); the film garnered generally favorable reviews,[35] with Steven Rea of The Philadelphia Inquirer writing that Breslin is “alarmingly cute – but she backs the cuteness up with serious acting instinct.”[36]

In 2008, Breslin starred with Jodie Foster in the film Nim’s Island as Nim Rusoe, a young girl who lives on a remote tropical island.[37] Nim’s Island received mixed reviews[38] but was successful financially, grossing $100 million worldwide.[39]

In 2008, she appeared in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl as the title character. The film was based on the American Girl line of dolls, books, and accessories of which Breslin is a fan.[40] Kit Kittredge: An American Girl garnered favorable reviews[41] and grossed $17 million at the box office.[42] Breslin’s performance in the film was praised by critics;[43][44] Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal wrote that she “carries the event-stuffed story with unflagging grace.”[45]

In 2009, Breslin appeared in My Sister’s Keeper, where she played the role of Anna Fitzgerald, a young girl who was conceived to be a donor for her sister, Kate, who suffers from leukemia. Elle and Dakota Fanning were slated to play the roles of Anna and Kate respectively;[46] however, Dakota refused to shave her head for the role, so she and Elle were replaced by Sofia Vassilieva and Breslin.[47] My Sister’s Keeper received mixed reviews[48] but was a financial success, grossing $95 million worldwide.[49] James Berardinelli wrote that Breslin and Vassilieva “display a natural bond one might expect from sisters, and there’s no hint of artifice or overacting in either performance.”[50] Also in 2009, Breslin appeared in the horror comedy Zombieland as Little Rock.[51] Director Ruben Fleischer said that “the dream was always to get Abigail Breslin” for the role.[52] The film received positive reviews[53] and was successful at the box office, grossing $102 million worldwide.[54]

With previews beginning in February 2010, she made her Broadway debut as Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker at the Circle in the Square Theatre.[55] Breslin has said that she was honored to play Keller,[56] who is one of her “biggest heroes”.[57] The Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts, an advocacy group for blind and deaf actors, criticized the play’s producers for not casting a deaf or blind actor in the role. Lead producer David Richenthal defended the decision, stating that he needed a well-known actress: “It’s simply naïve to think that in this day and age, you’ll be able to sell tickets to a play revival solely on the potential of the production to be a great show or on the potential for an unknown actress to give a breakthrough performance.”[58] Vision-impaired actress Kyra Siegel was cast as Breslin’s understudy.[59] Breslin’s performance was praised by critics;[60][61][62] Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter wrote that she “well portrays Helen’s feral rebelliousness in the play’s early sections and is deeply touching as her character’s bond with her teacher grows.”[63] Ticket sales for the play, however, were considered disappointing, and the show closed in April 2010.[64][65]

Breslin at the Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair party, 2011

In September 2009, Breslin filmed in Des Moines, Iowa, playing the title character in the film Janie Jones:[66] a 13-year-old girl who is abandoned by her former-groupie mother (Elisabeth Shue), and informs Ethan Brand (Alessandro Nivola), a fading rock star, that she is his daughter.[67] The film premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.[67] In 2011, Breslin voiced Priscilla, a cactus mouse in the animated comedy Rango,[68] and appeared in the romantic comedy New Year’s Eve.

In 2013, she appeared in the thriller The Call. The film received mixed reviews from critics.[69] Andrew Barker of Variety wrote that Breslin “acquits herself well enough for a problematic role in which she’s forced to cry and scream nearly continuously.”[70] The Call grossed $68 million worldwide.[71] In 2013, Breslin also appeared in Haunter in the role of Lisa, a ghost who bonds with a future girl living in her house to stop an evil killing spirit with the help of his many victims.[citation needed]

Breslin also starred in the film adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s novel, Ender’s Game[72] The film received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics[73] but it was a disappointment at the box office,[74] grossing only $125 million worldwide from a $110 million budget.[75] In July 2012, she was cast in August: Osage County, the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name, alongside Julia Roberts, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Meryl Streep.[76] August: Osage County received mostly positive reviews.[77] In 2014, Breslin appeared in the crime drama Perfect Sisters. In January 2015, she was cast in the first season of Fox‘s horror-comedy anthology series Scream Queens.[78]

Occupation Actress
Years active 2000-present

Stacey Anne Farber (born August 25, 1987) is a Canadian actress who is best known for playing Eleanor “Ellie” Nash in seasons 2 through 7 of the television series Degrassi: The Next Generation and Sydney Katz on Saving Hope.

From 2010–2011, she starred in the CBC series 18 to Life with fellow Canadian Michael Seater of Life with Derek.[1][2]

Acting career[edit]

In her role as Ellie Nash on Degrassi: The Next Generation, Farber plays a troubled young girl who has problems with depression and cutting, while dealing with an alcoholic mother. Stacey started off as a recurring character in the show’s second season, but was promoted to a regular role in the third season and continued until the end of season seven. For her work on Degrassi, Stacey was nominated for Canada’s top acting award, a Gemini Award, in the category ‘Best Performance in a Youth Program or Series’. [3]

In addition to playing Ellie in Degrassi, Farber also appeared in the 2001 Canadian short film Bagatelle. She played Young Kathryn in the 2002 crime film, Narc, she guest starred as Lacy Sanders on an episode of the television drama Doc, and guest hosted the 2004-05 season finale of The N’s Best Friend’s Date. She also plays Mary in the animated science fiction series Dark Oracle. As well, she appeared as herself in Instant Star and in 2006 she had a mini-series on The N‘s The Click titled Stacey’s NYC 101. In addition to her screen work, Farber has appeared in various stage productions, including Love, Loss and What I Wore.[4]

Farber was also one of the last three actresses auditioning for the self-titled role in Juno, which Ellen Page eventually landed.[5] Coincidentally, Daniel Clark, who acted as her onscreen love interest for two seasons of Degrassi, originally auditioned for the role of Bleeker, Junos love interest. The role eventually went to Michael Cera, while Clark landed a smaller role as jock Steve Rendazo.

From 2010–2011, Farber starred in 18 to Life with Michael Seater. The CBC/CW[6] series featured Seater marrying literal girl-next-door Farber at age 18, against both sets of parents’ wishes.[4] The pilot was actually filmed in 2008 in Montreal, with the further eleven episodes filmed in summer 2010.[7] Critic Raju Mudhar wrote in the Toronto Star that the series had an “almost Juno-like quality”. While disliking the series, he suggested the leads have “some chemistry and both are compelling, young actors to watch.”[8] The two were described as “getting along famously” in real life, having met only for the TV movie Degrassi Goes Hollywood.[4] Farber’s mother on the series was played by Angela Asher, who appeared with Farber before that in Made… The Movie.[9] The series was nominated for a Gemini Award for best ensemble performance.[10]

Personal life[edit]

Farber was born in Toronto, Ontario. She is from a Jewish family.[11][12][13][14] She graduated in 2005 from the all-girls private school Branksome Hall. Farber completed her first year of university at York University in Toronto, Canada. She transferred to and, in 2009, graduated from The New School university’s Eugene Lang College in New York and was an intern at Teen Vogue.[15] She finished her internship in Teen Vogue’s Web Department in May 2008; her last Intern Blog entry was made on May 8, 2008.

In Chicago she’s worked with A Red Orchid Theatre, Northlight Theatre, Steep Theatre, Jackalope Theatre, Back Room Shakespeare Project, and others.
