Oh, behhhhhaaaaavvvvveeee! The Lovely Mimi Rogers Making A Stop @ Chicago Comic Cons!
EMMY AWARD NOMINEE Mimi Rogers, <i>Austin Powers & X-Files</i> Star, Joins the Wizard World Tour!It's fair to say that after 20 years and over 50 film appearances, Mimi Rogers should be praised for her variety of roles and acting capabilities not for a brief marriage to a Hollywood star. In the early 1980s, she began to carve a niche for herself in Hollywood, appearing on television and in films. It was her role in Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) that got her noticed and was her springboard to stardom. Cemented by her brief, second marriage to younger actor Tom Cruise, Mimi went on to appear in Hider in the House (1989), Desperate Hours (1990), and The Doors (1991). She appeared in a controversial movie analyzing religion in America. The Rapture (1991), directed by Michael Tolkin, proved a hit and delighted audiences, creating many a debate over the film's subject material. She played a bored telephone exchange operator who swaps a sinful life of sex and swinging with other couples for a devout religious one, ending unexpectedly in disaster. A subsequent photo spread and interview in Playboy magazine in 1993 provided fans with an insight into her life with Cruise and her film career so far. Despite her successes, few meaty, interesting roles came her way in the '90s. Shooting Elizabeth (1992), opposite Jeff Goldblum, the family movie Monkey Trouble (1994), Far from Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog (1995), and Full Body Massage (1995) (TV) were just a few of the films that she appeared in. Working consistently, she rejuvenated her career in the unexpected hit Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), playing Miss Kensington, an attractive female agent of 1960s London and the mother of Elizabeth Hurley's character. Next, Mimi was seen in the big-screen remake of the '60s sci-fi TV series Lost in Space (1998) and several guest appearances on the hugely popular television series "The X-Files" (1993), playing a scheming FBI agent. A role in the Canadian indie-horror Ginger Snaps (2000) did her career no harm. Soon, she was opposite Geena Davis in "The Geena Davis Show" (2000) from 2000-01 and playing an extremely rich Manhattan socialite in the direct-to-video Cruel Intentions 2 (2000)(V).

More recently Mimi has appeared on cable television, including leading roles in Charms for the Easy Life (2002) (TV) (which she also executive produced) and Cave In (2003) (TV) (a true-life disaster drama in which she played the Chief Superintendent of a mine). In 2004, she gave a revealing performance in The Door in the Floor (2004), a critical success. "The Loop" (2006), a Chicago-based sitcom, will soon be airing in America, featuring Mimi as a flirtatious office worker. Also in 2006, Mimi will be appearing in an original horror film, Penny Dreadful (2006), playing a psychiatrist in peril. In 2003, she married her longtime partner Chris Ciaffa, with whom she had a daughter in 1995. A poker novice, Mimi also travels around competing in tournaments, some televised. A lengthy filmography and critically praised acting reveal that there is far more to Mimi Rogers than a celebrity marriage. At the age of fifty, she is still one of the busiest actresses in Hollywood, and looking as good as ever.
