Michael Farr was born in 1953 in Paris to an Austrian-Czech mother, Hildegarde Farr (née Pisarowitz) and a British journalist father, Walter Farr. Educated at Harrow School, and then a history scholar at Trinity College Cambridge, he read Theology as his part one before changing to Fine Art in which he gained an MA. He became a reporter, first for Reuters and then the Daily Telegraph, travelling around the world as a foreign correspondent. After meeting Hergé, Farr started writing books about Tintin. Farr was the first to gain full access to the files and material Hergé had used in developing the Tintin stories, for his book Tintin: The Complete Companion. In 2004 Farr was interviewed on BBC News in a section on the Tintin exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. He appeared in 2003 in the documentary film, Tintin and I. He now lives in London with his German wife and daughter. Farr is multilingual in English, French, German and Italian. He wrote a French version of Tintin: The Complete Companion at the same time as he wrote the English version.
