Date of Birth: July 11th 1953
Mindy Lee Sterling (born July 11, 1953) is an American actress. Although she had worked in the industry for over 25 years, she only began to truly garner attention after playing Frau Farbissina, the diminutive and domineering Germanic cohort of Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) in the Austin Powers series of comedy films.
Sterling was born in Paterson, New Jersey and raised in Miami, Florida, the daughter of Dick Sterling, a stand-up comedian and singer. Her mother was a dancer. Blonde, with an open smile and a relatively soft-spoken demeanor, she is quite unlike the screeching, sour-faced Farbissina, allowing her to live everyday life virtually unnoticed despite the massive popularity of the Austin Powers films. She has been married to Brian Gadson, they together have one child.
