They're the best parties I've ever been to."[1] Farren once stated in an interview he always knew he wanted to be an actor: "I can't remember a time when I didn't watch a movie and think, 'That's what I want to do'... Growing up, people said you have to have a plan B. I never felt that, I always thought, nah, this is what I'm going to do."[2] He attended Benowa State High School and studied in its French Immersion Program where students study typical subjects but receive at least half of their schooling in French.[3] Farren graduated from the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in 2007.
