Who IS This - Answer

Using a Kirk reference against me, Cindy? The nerve. And yet, well played, my friend, well played. And you are correct! Our mystery celebrity is none other than MIA SARA.

Gaze at all of her last century loveliness here:

Ah. Mia. I just loved her in 1986.

Mia Sara was born June 19th, 1967 in Brooklyn Heights, New York as Mia Sarapocciello. Her acting career began in Legend (1985) where she played Princess Lily. Hot on the heels of this fondly remembered (but not too much so) film she burst onto movie screens everywhere as Sloane Peterson, girlfriend to Ferris Bueller in Ferris Bueller's Day Off - the BEST movie of 1986 and one of my absolute favorite films of all time.

But I digress...

In 1988 she starred in a truly horrific film entitled Shadows in the Storm with Ned Beatty. In 1989 she starred in "Til We Meet Again" a made for TV miniseries based on a Judith Krantz novel. Mia was not on a hot streak, project wise, at this point.

Her other big film was the 1994 film, Timecop, with Jean Claude Van-Damme. I know - the horror, the horror. Mia won the "Best Supporting Actress" Saturn award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films for her performance in this film, which I'm sure that she displays proudly in her home. The home that she has shared with her husband, Jason Connery (yes - Sean Connery's son) since they were married in March 1996. In June 1997 they had a baby boy, Dashiell Quinn. They also have some dogs and she has her pilots license blah blah blah.

But again, I digress..

She was also in a couple episodes of the TV series Time Trax, and two episodes of Chicago Hope as Annie, a post-operative transsexual. A role on the WB's short-lived series Birds of Prey was her last, major role. Although she did guest star in an episode of CSI:NY in 2005.

Ah Mia. We'll always have Ferris.

Okay, enough with the women who have gone downhill...find a picture of a former hunk of our generation who is barely recognizable now. I would bet that this would be a difficult challenge, seeing how men rarely change haircolor, etc. I will also look to see what I can find.

How DO you find these people?!
