Mia Sara is an American actress whose biggest claim to fame is her starring role in the comedy film ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day off.' She made her acting debut with the 1985 Ridley Scott film ‘Legend’ and managed to hit the home run with her debut film. The film was a huge critical and commercial success and turned out to be the definitive career breakthrough for Mia Sara. Thereafter, she featured in a series of notable films in the 90s and some of them even turned out to be the best roles of her career. Some successful films she did during that period were ‘Timecop,’ ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,’ ‘By the Sword,' ‘A Stranger Among us,’ and ‘The Maddening.'
She appeared in some good TV series, such as ‘Time Trax,’ ‘Bullet to Beijing,’ ‘Lost in Oz,’ and ‘Birds on Prey.' But by the turn of the century, her career took a down turn as she appeared in some films, which were commercial and commercial failures.
Some of the not-so-successful Mia Sara films are ‘The Incredible Elephant,’ ‘Hoodlum and Son,’ ‘Dazzle,’ and ‘Little Insects.’
