Hayley Mills - Forever Young. In Conversation with Christopher Biggins

Hayley Mills career spans five decades; as a result of a six picture deal with Walt Disney she became one of the biggest child stars and won an Oscar at the age of thirteen. She continues to work in films, on stage and on television.

Priestfield Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5UT


The daughter of acclaimed and much loved British actor Sir John Mills, she began her acting career at the age of twelve in the British Movie ‘Tiger Bay’ playing opposite her father, and was quickly thrust into the spotlight.

Hayley Mills’ teenage decade in Hollywood produced some of the era’s greatest coming-of-age family movies: classics like Pollyanna, The Parent Trap and In Search of the Castaways, and in Britain the acclaimed Whistle Down the Wind. These films made Hayley a genuine teen idol and a household name. Now and for the first time, Hayley reveals the truth of her own coming-of-age story, in her own words – a story of incredible twists of fate and fortune, but also mismanagement, bankruptcy, family crisis and dislocation.

Talking with Christopher Biggins, Hayley takes us back in time to a bygone era, charting a journey from her carefree childhood innocence in post-war Britain, growing up in the shadow of her famous theatrical family, to being propelled into the Technicolor boomtown of 1960s Hollywood, where she is mentored to stardom by Walt Disney himself.

Afterwards there will be the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Hayley’s autobiography Forever Young and meet Hayley herself.
