This is so sad! Mia Farrow’s brother, Patrick, was found dead in a Vermont art gallery, where he’s been sculpting for over 30 years. His wife and him had run the gallery, which sold mixed media art and jewelry stuff for about that long of time. Police say that his death “looks suspicious”, and they aren’t releasing any information until they know for sure. For another huge kick in the teeth to the family, his nephew was killed in Iraq last year – so obviously, they have a LOT to deal with.
Mia Farrow is best known (unfortunately) for the scandalous end to her long-term relationship with director Woody Allen, which happened because he was having a little “fling” with her adopted daughter, then 21, whom he later married (doesn’t make it any less gross, does it). She’s an excellent actress, her best roles have been “Rosemary’s Baby” and “Crimes and Misdemeanors”. I still love Woody Allen’s films, even with all that mess. Mia has been in the news lately for her hunger strike against the genocide in Darfur, a worthy cause if there ever was one.
ANYWAY, I’ll keep you posted when the police release more information. Send good thoughts and vibes to the family!
