Mia Wallace is a fictional character in the 1994 Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction. Uma Thurman's performance as Wallace earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. The character is considered one of the most iconic female film roles from the 1990s.
Miramax, the film studio, wanted a famous actress for the role of Mia. At the beginning, Miramax favored Holly Hunter and Meg Ryan for the part. Then Julia Roberts was considered for the part by Tarantino, but she required too high a salary. Tarantino also wanted Meg Tilly, Kim Basinger or Alfre Woodard. When Tarantino met Uma Thurman, he hired her for the role. This character was the protagonist of the film's promotional material, appearing on a bed with cigarette in hand.
Mia is in "love" with Amsterdam, which she goes to every year. Mia is the wife of Marsellus Wallace, one of the few mafia bosses. Mia, before meeting Marsellus, was an aspiring actress who participated in a television pilot called Fox Force Five, which failed.
Marsellus goes on a trip one night to negotiate and decided that Mia should spend the night with Vincent Vega, an employee and hitman of Marsellus. Vincent agrees, although is worried by the story of his friend and partner Jules Winnfield and the advice of Paul. The day before, Jules had told an anecdote of Antoine Rockamora, nicknamed Tony "Rockyhorror", A samoan who apparently gave Mia a foot massage, which caused Marsellus to throw him out of a four story window.
