Thora Birch Biography


Born March 11th, 1982 Thora Birch by age 9, had her life pretty much figured out. During an L.A. Times interview she stated that she planned to become a director by 24, then spend a year ice skating, then spend a year as a policewoman, and, finally, become a singer.

You might remember Thora Birch as the apple-cheeked blonde who once gazed up at Quaker Oats spokesman Wilford Brimley and said, "Mmm-hmm. Yeah, grandpa,". At age 4 Thora was a regular at commercial auditions, and by 6 she'd landed a spot on the short-lived daycare sitcom "Day by Day" in 1988. Her film career got off to an auspicious start that same year, when she won a Young Artist Award for her debut opposite Neil Patrick Harris in the children's fantasy flick Purple People Eater (1988). It wasnt much later that she picked up a role in another fleeting sitcom, "Parenthood" in 1990 co starring with David Arquette, Ed Begley Jr., and future star Leonardo DiCaprio

Early appearances credited Thora Birch as just "Thora" but she picked up her last name and returned to the big screen as Elijah Wood's tomboy friend in Paradise. She had a couple of big breaks as she scored high-profile supporting roles, as Harrison Ford's daughter in Patriot Games, which she later reprised in Clear and Present Danger in 1994. In the middle she managed to stay busy with family films Hocus Pocus (1993) and Monkey Trouble (1994). In 1995, Birch graduated into adolescent territory with her turn as a younger Melanie Griffith in Now and Then. She followed that up with a top-billed role in the snowy adventure Alaska, before take an acting break. Thora Birch returned in 1999 in the made-for-TV Night Ride Home and then again in an acclaimed role in American Beauty.

Thora's role in American Beauty is considered by many to be her first adult role as the troubled Jane Burnham. She was only 16, and thus a minor in the United States, when the movie was made, therefore her parents had to approve of Birch's brief nude scene in the movie. Thora Birch's mother was a porn star between the years of 1971-1983, working under the name of Carol Connors. She starred in the infamous porn movie Deep Throat, in the role of the nurse at the doctor's office. Carol starred in 21 porn movies, before she retired in 1983.

Thora Birch heard about 'Beauty' through the industry grapevine, and she immediately set her sights on the part of Jane Burnham. As it turned out, she was the first to audition for director Sam Mendes; while he saw dozens of other actresses for the role, none delivered a more convincing performance. Still reeling from her sudden celebrity status, Birch plucked a handful of diverse projects from the deluge of post 'American Beauty' scripts. Seeking an even edgier adolescent role, she appeared as a punk-rocker in the indie film The Smokers (2000), then dropped the tough-girl pose to play the gentle Empress Savina in the live-action adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons (2000). She also signed up to play a teen hipster caught up in a post-high school identity crisis in Ghost World (2001) (based on the graphic novel), and an English schoolgirl in the thriller The Hole (2001). Style-conscious and sophisticated beyond her years, Birch lives on her family's East L.A. ranch (where she recently finished high school through a computer-based correspondence course). She still hopes to try her hand at directing someday, but for now she's content to continue blossoming in front of the camera.
