Bio

Taissa Farmiga is an American actress best known for her starring role as Violet Harmon in the first season of the horror anthology series American Horror Story, in 2011. It was her first major role on television.

She also had a starring role on the third season of the series, as a young witch who joins Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a mysterious school in New Orleans devoted to safeguarding the few remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline.

Taissa was born and raised in New Jersey. She attended public school until the fourth grade when her mother began home schooling her along with her two siblings.

She initially had no ambitions to become an actress, but was persuaded to appear in older sister Vera's directing debut, Higher Ground, playing the 16-year-old version of her sister's character.

After her performance in the film was acclaimed at the Sundance Film Festival, she decided to pursue an acting career.

Farmiga is an avid reader with a passion for novels. She adores nature and loves being outdoors to enjoy snowboarding, hiking, and traveling.

She can play the guitar, cook and has mastered the art of making really, really tiny origami cranes.
