Amazing People: Vera Farmiga

'I really don't feel a need to be famous. But I do feel a need to make a difference, to shed light on human emotion through acting.'

-Vera Farmiga, actress, Up in the Air, The Departed and Orphan.


  1. She's great and I see a lot of warmth towards her from the more mainstream bloggers and publications exactly because of the above; she's genuine and un-pretentious and willing to talk honestly about what she does. I really hope the tentative rumours about her involvement in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES are true.

  2. If you wanna see a stellar bit of acting by Vera, look for a film called DOWN TO THE BONE. Such a great flick!

  3. @Film Intel--I hope THE DARK KNIGHT RISES rumours are true, I mean, Chris Nolan+Vera Farmiga=my dream!

    @The Mad Hatter--I have been trying to track down that flick for ages! I'll keep looking.

  4. I can't help myself being a bit proud that she's of Ukrainian descent.


You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
