NEW YORK — Lark Previn, a daughter of actress Mia Farrow whose sister Soon-Yi Previn was at the center of Farrow’s messy breakup with Woody Allen, has died. She was 35.

 

The medical examiner’s office says Lark Previn died Christmas Day at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn. No cause of death was given. A cremation was held today at Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery.

 

Lark Previn was born in Vietnam in 1973. She was one of three children adopted by Farrow and her then-husband, conductor Andre Previn. The couple also had three biological children.

 

Representatives for Farrow and Previn didn’t immediately return calls seeking comment.
