Miss Kentucky Preteen
“I was really excited to stay in Los Angeles, but I missed my family and friends. My Mom had to commute back and forth for the first few months, but it was well worth it. I now have a contract role on my favorite daytime drama. I still can't believe I'm living my dream.” Farah Fath.
Beginning her career in show business at the age of five, Farah Fath has participated in an International Model and Talent Convention by the age of eight. She was crowned "Miss Kentucky Preteen" in 1995 and was a National Speech Winner in several pageants. She later appeared in a national Pringles commercial and numerous print campaigns for Duncan Hines.
"I had been watching the show since I was a little girl. I mean, I was just this little girl from Kentucky with a big dream. I was really lucky. I went in there, and I couldn't act. But I got the part. I firmly believe that if you're destined to have a part, you're destined to get that part." Farah Fath (on winning a role in "Days of our Lives").
In 1999, Farah headed for L.A. for her first audition. And only within two weeks, she landed the role of Mimi Lockhart on NBC long-running soap opera, "Days of our Lives." Being asked about her role, she explained: “The situations Mimi gets herself into by keeping secrets is definitely not up my alley, but I do lend my own mannerisms and character traits to her. I get so defensive for Mimi that I will stand up for her!”
During her "Days of our Lives" years, she was spotted as a guest in an April 2003 episode of NBC huge hit sitcom “Friends” and a February 2004 episode of NBC dramedy "American Dreams."
In 2006, Farah decided to leave “Days Of Our Lives” for personal reasons. She asked to be let out of her contract a year early, but insists she was not fired. She said: “I’m getting annoyed that people think I was fired. I won’t divulge specific reasons why, but I asked to be let out of my contract a year early. Days complied, so that means they have until February 2007. Whether they use me until February is up to them.”
