Australian actress Mia Wasikowska was born on October 14, 1989 in Canberra, Australia to parents Marzena Wasikowska and John Reid. At nine, she started to learn how to do ballet dancing. Soon after, she began to get involved in European and Australian films. Her first exposure on screen happened in the year 2004 when she was cast on the Australian medical drama TV series All Saints wherein she played the role Lily Watson for about a year. In 2006, she experienced her first-ever acting job on big screen when she was cast on Paul Goldman’s film Suburban Mayhem alongside Emily Barclay, Michael Dorman, Anthony Hayes, Robert Morgan, and the rest of the cast. She soon appeared in a number of TV series and films, making her name become more prominent year after year. Presently, she is filming the upcoming American fantasy film Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, playing the main role Alice Kingsleigh. The said film will be aired in 2016.
Nowadays, Mia is no longer much into dancing, and because of that, she also admits that she also doesn’t exercise. “I miss dancing, but I don’t miss the industry and the gnarly toes from pointed work. And I’ve lost my strength as I don’t really exercise any more,” she shared in one of her interviews.
She was also asked in an interview whether she was tempted to starve herself when she was still doing ballet. She answered, “Definitely. But it never got too dramatic. But everybody was eating funny. I didn’t eat sugar for two years or something. But that was my own diet, and I was very strict about eating healthily.”
