Iconic Spotlight : Mia Farrow, by Michael Ward

Mia Farrow

27 June 1972: A hot summer's day. I was photographing in a garden in a village called Leigh, in Surrey, with Mia Farrow and her two young sons, Sascha and Matthew. We did a few pictures around the lawn and then went to the kitchen for coffee. She was much happier talking than posing, but I wished her then husband André Previn, had been there too; he was one of my favourite jazz pianists. Farrow, whose brief marriage was to Frank Sinatra, had six children (three adopted) with Previn and went onto have three more (two adopted) with Woody Allen. By The time she was forty-nine she had a total of fourteen children, five of them her own.

Such eyes!
