Mischa Barton

At the age of 18, Mischa Barton has developed an extensive filmography and theatrical resume that will surely make her one of the most sought after young actresses of her generation. Her feature film debut occurred in 1998 with the critically lauded Sundance favorite "Lawn Dogs" opposite Sam Rockwell. Her hailed performance was followed by "Pups," a modern day version of "Bonnie & Clyde" for filmmaker Ash ("Bang"). She has since racked up key roles in the 1999 Blockbusters "The Sixth Sense" with Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment, and "Notting Hill," with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant.

Barton has subsequently completed work on an additional six features. They include this Summer's "Lost and Delirious" opposite Piper Perabo for Lions Gate and "Julie Johnson" with Courtney Love and Lili Taylor (Fall); both of which premiered at Sundance. Also in the can is "Skipped Parts" with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Drew Barrymore, "Tart" with Melanie Griffith and Dominique Swain, "Paranoid" with Jessica Alba.

At age nine, Barton began her promising career in New York Theatre with a lead role in Tony Kushner's "Slavs!" She soon segued into the lead role of Emma Hattrick in James Lapine's "Twelve Dreams" at the renowned Lincoln Center. Among her varied stage credits are "Where the Truth Lies" and "One Flea Spare," both of which took place at the New York Shakespeare Festival.

No stranger to television, Barton was featured for three seasons on the daytime drama "All My Children." She also portrayed the title role of Frankie alongside Joan Plowright in the recent Showtime feature "Frankie and Hazel" for producer Barbra Streisand's Barwood Films. After spending time on location in Australia filming the Disney telefilm "Ring of Endless Light"; Mischa returned to the US to a guest starring role in the popular television drama "Once and Again." Her next stop was the UK and Luxembourg to shoot the horror/thriller "Octane", which is set to be released this year. Currently Mischa is working on the set of the Fox series, "The O.C."

A long-time Manhattan resident, Barton enjoys family-life with her parents and two sisters.
