Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Mamma Mia! (2008)] If you want to approach it critically there are a million things you could take issue with, but I don't even think that's the point. The point is to sit back and enjoy the ABBA tunes and scenery of the Greek islands. We loved making it and people clearly love watching it. See more »

Trivia:

Daughter of Virginia (Mazurowski) and Lucien Baranski. Her father edited a Polish-language newspaper. Her grandparents were theatre actors. See more »
