HILARY FARR -- ACTRESS
Farr originally wanted to be a ballet dancer, but she grew too tall and decided to focus on acting instead. In the 70s, Farr accumulated a series of credits which included a role in the 1975 cult classic, "Rocky Horror Picture Show," starring Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, and the inimitable Tim Curry.
In the film, Farr played the bride in the film's opening scene, the wedding which inspires Brad to propose to Janet and sets off the chain of events that brings them to Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s door. Farr explained how she got the part:
“It came about because we lived — as a family — right below Tim Curry [AKA Dr. Frank-N-Furter himself].”

My father on my wedding Day in LA, “giving me away”. My father was my buddy, my strength my most loyal defender: But he was also my toughest critic and brutally honest even when he knew it would hurt. Best simplest advice he gave me as a very young child: “Do as you would be done to. Keep that in your own hidden place, untouchable and you’ll be strong and fearless”. I’ve done my best to hold on to that. #fathersday
During the 70s Farr worked on a series of films, including "Legend of the Werewolf" with the legendary Peter Cushing, "City on Fire" with Henry Fonda and Ava Gardner, and "The Return" with Cybill Shepherd, and Martin Landau.
After her divorce, Farr turned to design and worked in Australia, Britain, and finally, the United States. She is now residing in Toronto but travels frequently to New York to oversee the operations of her design firm, Hilary Farr's Designs.
The fabulous Miss Farr is as adept at reinventing herself as she is at transforming drab and dreary homes into showplaces.
