Vera Farmiga is Aurora


Vera Farmiga is Aurora in The Vintner's Luck

"Aurora is everything Celeste is not. Celeste is instinct and animal and Aurora is cerebral and emancipation. Celeste is mad, and Aurora is very much in control& all reason and rationale, with little sensual experience."

Vera Farmiga gained international recognition in 2007 for her role in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning film The Departed, co-starring with Matt Damon, Leonardo di Caprio, Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg, with whom she shared the National Board of Review Award for Best Ensemble Cast.

In 2004, her leading role in Down to the Bone won her the Independent Spirit Award nomination as Best Actress, and awards from the Sundance Film Festival, Bendfilm Festival, the Marrakech Film Festival and LA Film Critics Award.

Farmiga began her acting career in 1996, on stage and television, taking the lead in the television adventure series Roar, opposite a then unknown Heath Ledger. In 1998, she appeared on film in Return to Paradise, directed by Joseph Rubin. Other notable roles include Breaking and Entering for director Anthony Minghella, The Boy in Striped Pyjamas, directed by Mark Herman, and Jaume Collet-Serra's Orphan.
