Mischa Barton was born in London on January 24th, 1986 (in a hospital she later found out her 'Notting Hill' co-star Hugh Grant was born at as well.) She moved to New York and began working on stage plays when she was eight.

In 1994 and 1995 she played the lead role of 'Vodya Domik', a child who questioned the Communist Russian establishment in 'Slavs!' by Tony Kushner, with Marisa TomeiJoseph Wiseman. She went on to play the role of 'Emma Hatrick' a child who predicts her own death in a series of dreams, in James Lapine's 'Twelve Dreams' at Lincoln Center Theater alongside Donna Murphy and Harry Groener.

Her first role in a TV Series was on the well known ABC Soap 'All My Children' on which she played first 'Young Corvina' and later 'Lily Benton,' the autistic daughter of Jackson Montgomery and Laurel Dillon. Mischa has since been involved in two more theatrical productions in New York.

Her first film role was in 1996's "New York Crossing," for which she recieved little recognition. Her breakthrough role came the very next year when she starred in "Lawn Dogs" opposite Sam Rockwell and Kathleen Quinlan. She garnered critical praise for her portrayal of a loney rich girl who befriends the man that does her family's yard work. Her next critically successful role was in 1999, with her work in "Pups," in which she played a child robbing a bank with her middle-school boyfriend. Mischa had small roles in two of that year's biggest blockbusters, "The Sixth Sense" and "Notting Hill."

Since then, she has continued her education in New York City and performed in eight more film and television roles, including "Skipped Parts," "Frankie & Hazel," "Lost and Delirious," Tart," and another film for her "Lawn Dogs" director John Duigan, in "Paranoid." She attended the Sundance 2001 Film Festival earlier in the year to promote "Lost and Delirious" and is constantly juggling her career life with her home and school life. She still entertains the world with her promising sense of style, wit, and charm onscreen.
