Juliet Mills (born November 21, 1941) is a British character actress, most famous for her roles on shows such as Nanny and the Professor and Passions. She had important roles in Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), starring Kathleen Turner and Nicolas Cage, and the Sci-Fi oddity Stranded (1987). When her daughter, Mia Farrow, became involved with Woody Allen both professionally and romantically, O'Sullivan appeared in a couple of his movies playing Farrow's mother. She was also an executive director of a bridal consulting service, Wediquette International. She was the Today Girl for NBC for a while, then she made the movie version of Never Too Late (1965) for Warner Bros.
O'Sullivan stuck with acting after the death of her husband. Shortly after it opened on Broadway, John Farrow died of a heart attack. That led to another play, Never Too Late, in which she co-starred with Paul Ford. The play, A Roomful of Roses, opened in 1961.
Then fellow Irish thespian Pat O'Brien encouraged her to take a part in summer stock. By 1960, she believed she had permanently retired. She continued to appear occasionally in her husband's movies and on television. In (1948), she re-appeared on the screen in The Big Clock for Paramount Studios, which was directed by her husband.
She then retired from show business, devoting her time to being a wife and mother. After appearing in Tarzan's New York Adventure (1942), O'Sullivan asked MGM to release her from her contract so she could care for her husband who had just left the Navy with typhoid. She played another Jane in Pride and Prejudice (1940) with Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson, and supported Ann Sothern in Maisie Was a Lady (1941). At her request, he rewrote her part to give it substance and novelty.
Scott Fitzgerald. She appeared as Molly Beaumont in A Yank at Oxford (1938), which was written partly by F. She also starred with William Powell and Myrna Loy in The Thin Man (1934) and played Kitty in Anna Karenina (1935) with Greta Garbo and Basil Rathbone. She did not mind doing the first two jungle movies, but feared being typecast and grew increasingly tired of the role.
In all, O'Sullivan played Jane, mate of Tarzan, in six features between (1932) and (1942). She and Farrow were the parents of seven children: Michael Farrow, Patrick Farrow, Maria Farrow (actress Mia Farrow), John Farrow, Prudence Farrow, Theresa "Tisa" Farrow and Stephanie Farrow. She was a widow for twenty years, then married James Cushing (August 22, 1983-1998 her death). O'Sullivan was first married to Australian writer, later award-winning director, John Farrow (September 12, 1936-1963 his death).
Besides playing Jane, she was one of the more popular ingenues at MGM throughout the 1930s and appeared in a number of other productions with various stars. After several roles there and at other movie studios, she was chosen by Irving Thalberg to appear as Jane Parker in Tarzan the Ape Man opposite co-star Johnny Weissmuller. In 1932, she signed a contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. O'Sullivan appeared in six movies at Fox, then made three more at other movie studios.
She then traveled to the United States with her mother to complete the movie in Hollywood. She did and won a part in the movie, which starred Irish tenor John McCormack. He suggested she take a screen test. She then met the motion picture director Frank Borzage, who was doing location filming on Song o' My Heart for 20th Century Fox.
After attending finishing school in France, O'Sullivan returned to Dublin and began working with the poor. One of her classmates there was Vivien Leigh. She attended a convent school in Dublin, then the Convent of the Sacred Heart at Roehampton in London. She was born Maureen Paula O'Sullivan in Boyle, County Roscommon, Ireland, the daughter of Charles Joseph O'Sullivan and Mary Frazer.
