Ferris Bueller's Day Off's Mia Sara
The gorgeous Mia Sara was born June 19th, 1967, to an Italian American family in Brooklyn, New York. She broke into Hollywood fresh out of high school at age 18 when she landed the role of "Princess Lili" alongside Tom Cruise in Ridley Scott's Legend and as the suave and adventurous "Sloane Peterson" in the smash hit Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
She went on to star in all kinds of genres like historical fiction, sci-fi, thrillers, romance, and even comedy. Mia ruled the screen in A Climate for Killing, Timecop, The Maddening, Bullet to Beijing, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and in Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King. Mia even won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress in Timecop!
On the set of Bullet to Beijing, she met co-star Sean Connery's son Jason whom she married in 1996 and had a son named Dasheill Quinn Connery in 1997. Unfortunately, the two divorced in 2002.
Since then she has married Brian Henson, the director of her 2010 TV mini-series Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story. He also went on to cast her in the hit Stephen King series Nightmares and Dreamscapes.
Mia's husband Brian is actually the son of the famed puppeteer, cartoonist, and filmmaker Jim Henson, creator of The Muppet Show and puppeteer behind Sesame Street! The two share beautiful and creative daughter Amelia Jane Henson who was born in 2005.
