Actor / Comedian

Born: 14 October 1989
Birthplace: Canberra, Australia
Best known as:

Alice in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland

Australian actress Mia Wasikowska played the title role in Tim Burton's 2010 film version of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. A native of Canberra, she studied ballet as a child and turned to acting when she was 15. After some TV and film work in Australia, Wasikowska moved to Los Angeles to be in the cable drama In Treatment (2008). Her portrayal of a suicidal teen earned critical praise and led to more work in American movies, including Defiance (2008, starring Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber) and Amelia (2009, starring Hilary Swank as Amelia Earhart). In Burton's Alice, Wasikowska co-starred with Johnny Depp and carried a blockbuster movie, appearing in almost every scene. Her other movies include The Kids Are All Right (2010, with Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) and Jane Eyre (2011, with Michael Fassbender).
