A list of my favorite images of actress-sisters, Vera and Taissa Farmiga.
Vera Farmiga (born: 6 August 1973) is the second of seven children born to Ukrainian parents. She did not speak English until the age of six and was raised in the strict Ukrainian Catholic home of her mother, Lyuba (Spas), a schoolteacher, and her father, Michael (Mykola) Farmiga, a computer systems analyst. Her younger sister is actress Taissa Farmiga.
In 2010, Vera Farmiga received an Academy Award nomination for best performance in a supporting role, opposite George Clooney, in 'Up in the Air' (2009), which received six Oscar nominations. In 2011, she made her directorial debut with 'Higher Ground' (2011), where she also appears in the leading role as Corinne, a thoughtful woman who struggles with belief, love and trust - in human relationships as well as in God - and dares to question the religious dogma. Although the film had a limited release, Farmiga's direction and performance received attention at several festivals.
Taissa Farmiga (born: 17 August 1994) is the youngest of seven children and is the younger sister of actress Vera Farmiga, who is 21 years her senior. Unlike her sister, Taissa had no interest in becoming an actor. However, Vera managed to persuade Taissa to make her acting debut in Vera's directorial-debut 'Higher Ground' (2011).
Also playing the lead in the film, Vera wanted to cast someone who was physically similar to play the younger version of her character. Taissa was aged 15 and, apart from a school play, had no previous acting experience. The film showcased at the Sundance film festival and she received great reviews. It was after Sundance that Taissa officially decided to pursue acting.
