Vera Ann Farmiga (/fɑrˈmiːɡə/; born August 6, 1973) is an American actress, director, and producer. She began her career on the stage, making her Broadway debut in the play Taking Sides (1996). Farmiga made her television debut on the Fox fantasy adventure series Roar (1997), and her feature film debut in the drama-thriller Return to Paradise (1998).

Farmiga's breakout role came in 2004, when she was cast as a mother harboring a secret drug habit in the independent drama film Down to the Bone. Her film career continued, with Farmiga co-starring in the political thriller The Manchurian Candidate (2004), the neo-noir crime drama The Departed (2006), the historical drama The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008), and the political drama Nothing But the Truth (2008). Farmiga gained more critical acclaim for her performance as businesswoman Alex Goran in the 2009 comedy-drama Up in the Air, for which she was nominated for the Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actress.

She then had starring roles in the psychological thriller Orphan (2009), the romantic comedy Henry's Crime (2010), and the science fiction film Source Code (2011). She made her directorial debut with the drama film Higher Ground (2011), in which she also starred in the lead role. In 2013, Farmiga portrayed famous paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren in the horror film The Conjuring, and will reprise the role in the 2016 sequel The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.

Since 2013, Farmiga has starred as Norma Louise Bates in the A&E television series Bates Motel. She was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for her performance. Farmiga has served as a producer since its second season. This role, along with her lead roles in Joshua, Orphan, and the two Conjuring films, has garnered her the reputation of a scream queen.


Marriages and family
Farmiga met French actor Sebastian Roché while co-starring together on the television series Roar. They eloped to the Bahamas after the series ended in 1997. Farmiga and Roché separated in 2004, and were divorced in 2005 following eight years of marriage. In 2004, Farmiga began dating musician Renn Hawkey (of Deadsy) after meeting on the set of her television series Touching Evil. The couple married in a private ceremony on September 13, 2008, when Farmiga was five months pregnant with their first child. Their son, Fynn McDonnell Hawkey, was born on January 15, 2009 in Rhinebeck, New York. Farmiga gave birth to their second child, a daughter named Gytta Lubov Hawkey, on November 4, 2010. The family divides their time between homes in Ulster County, New York and Vancouver. Through her marriage to Hawkey, she is the sister-in-law of actress and photographer Molly Hawkey. Farmiga's younger sister is actress Taissa Farmiga, whom she considers her best friend.

Religious beliefs
Farmiga is a nondenominational Christian. In an August 2011 interview with Christianity Today, Farmiga said: "I grew up in a Ukrainian Catholic-turned-Christian household, and that is my family's faith. My father instilled in me – of utmost importance and innate in me is the yearning to determine for myself – to define God, to define holiness for myself. That was my parents' number one lesson for us." She then added: "For [me], God is in temples and in churches, and on park benches. I don't belong to any particular church, but I'm someone who will be able to walk into any place of worship, any house of worship, and have a direct correspondence.
