Biography

A natural talent from Australia, Mia Wasikowska rose from relative obscurity to global attention with major roles on the HBO series "In Treatment" (2008- ) and in the films "Defiance" (2008), "Amelia" and "That Evening Sun.

The casting choice vaulted Wasikowska to the top of the one-to-watch lists, and assured her status as a star in the making.
