"I was born near Point Reyes, just north of San Francisco, and lived on a ranch with all these kind hippie-ish people. My dad was a traveling Middle Eastern musician and pretty much split on us. My mom was a belly dancer. After Point Reyes we kind of lived in a car, just traveling around. Finally, she got a gig in Vancouver, liked it and decided it would be a good place to raise me. I got my first acting job there, on a TV movie. I was seven. Then I got the part of Dorothy in "Return To Oz", which was filming in England. So I moved to London with my mom until I was fourteen, then to Paris to do "Valmont" for about a year. It was wonderful, one of the best times of my life. I was very shy, very internalized, reading a lot. But I could speak French and just hang out in cafes and read and be by myself, and people respect that there."
At this point, Fairuza excuses herself to go to the bathroom. Then she jumps ahead to her life back in Vancouver (at age sixteen), where she was enrolled in real-life high school.
"I survived for about two days. I am very dyslexic and just wasn't a normal kid. And the kids were nasty to me. Well, not nasty, but just couldn't relate. I wore all black and was really into punk and Goth and industrial music. And I just didn't understand why you couldn't smoke and have coffee in class. I kind of half dropped out and was half kicked out. I had this math teacher, and he looked like a cop on PCP, he had this red face with veins that would pop out of his neck. I don't remember his name, which is too bad. Anyway, I just wouldn't get match, and he was like, "What are you, retarded?' And I lost my temper and hucked my textbook at him, nailed him. I went home and told my mom I wasn't doing this anymore, and she was like okay. I started doing correspondence classes but only made it to like grade nine. Traditional school just wasn't for me. I hate the attention span of a two-year-old."
