Mimi Rogers (born January 27, 1956) is an American movie actress and competitive poker player.


Early life

Rogers was born Miriam Spickler in Coral Gables, Florida, the daughter of Philip C. Spickler, a civil engineer.[citation needed]


Her early roles included a 1981 appearance in Hill Street Blues as a love interest for officer Andy Renko (Charles Haid), Blue Skies Again with Harry Hamlin in 1983, and playing the daughter of Hoyt Axton in the TV series The Rousters (1983–1984) starring Chad Everett and Jim Varney. Rogers' breakthrough role was opposite Tom Berenger in Someone to Watch Over Me (1987). She starred in a religious drama The Rapture (1991) as well as Full Body Massage (1995).[1] She appeared in sci-fi films such as Lost in Space (1998) as well as the television series The X-Files (1998–1999) as Diana Fowley. She appeared as the mother of Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley) in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), and in the final season of Dawson's Creek (1998) she played the mother of Jen Lindley (Michelle Williams). In 2006 she starred in a Fox sitcom, The Loop, and in 2010 guest starred in long-running animated sitcom King of the Hill.

She posed nude for the March 1993 edition of Playboy magazine, and also appeared on that issue's cover. [2]


Having played poker as a teenager, Rogers took up competitive poker in 2003 and finished in the money in her first major tournament at the World Poker Tour's 240 player Shooting Stars' main event No-Limit Texas hold 'em tournament in San Jose, California, on March 4, 2004. She is also on the board of directors of the World Poker Tour.

Rogers is one of the "famous faces"[3] due to being a regular player on the online poker website Hollywood Poker which is run in conjunction with Ongame Network. In July 2006, she finished in the money (33rd place) at the $1000 Ladies' No-Limit Hold 'em World Series of Poker event, winning $5,132.

She is now one of the celebrities playing on Hollywood Poker participating in promotional events.[4]

She has married three times: first to Jim Rogers, from 1977 until they divorced in 1980. She was married to Tom Cruise from 1987 until their 1990 divorce.[5] Rogers introduced Cruise to Scientology.[6] In 2003, she married producer Chris Ciaffa; they have a daughter, Lucy (born 1994), and son, Charles (born 2001).[7]
