Hadn't heard anything about her father, someone please fill me in.

She was wonderful in Ghost World, not seen much of her since.

Never thought much of her. Whether the problems with ner not being in the limelight or being a big 'star' are due to her father, her agent, or herself and bad decisions.

I remember her being a child actor. May be it's common place for actors to have fame as a child and not progress.

The only other thing I remember is the window scene - for obvious reasons. Not a good sign if that's all a person remembers you for.

Her bio hasn't been updated for a while
Mini Biography
From Monkey Trouble (1994) to American Beauty (1999)-- that's Hollywood "Hocus Pocus"!

Coincidentally Wes Bentley has had more than his share of struggles too.

Amazing actress. Absolutely incredible in American Beauty, as well as Ghost World.

I always thought she was gonna blow up, but it doesn't look like it will ever happen. The last thing I saw her in was a B Grade horror film on Netflix.

Put it this way, when I first saw Ghost World I never thought Scarlett Johansson would be the one to go on to become a household name.

I thought Johansson was beyond bland in that film. And most of her others to be fair.

I always liked Thora. It's a shame she didn't make it huge when she had the potential to (though appearing in the massive disaster 'Dungeons & Dragons' certainly didn't help...

This, I think, adequately shows how her father is a bit...?? - http://www.boston.com/ae/celebrity/a...ly_sex_advice/

There's a few blogs on this subject of Thora's flagging film career:

Be warned as this blog is a little harsh on Ms Birch & why she let her film career go to pot:

She is a brilliant actress. She was brilliant in American Beauty and for me was the second best next to Kevin Spacey in American Beauty

It's a shame she has gone under the radar

This happens a lot with child actors. It was an achievement that she progressed from kid roles to teen roles as many do not make the transition.
