Mia Wallace is the new wife of Marsellus Wallace. She is a rather mysterious character, and very little is revealed about her, and that makes her all the more interesting to watch. She likes to wear elegant, expensive clothing, smokes the fictitious brand of ‘Red Apple’ cigarettes, enjoys music, and is addicted to cocaine. She is a world traveller, and goes to Amsterdam annually. She likes her burgers rare, and her $5 shakes are vanilla flavored. She enjoys novelty, using playful epithets and nicknames, but she hates mindless chit chat and isn’t much for small talk.
At Marsellus’ request, Vincent Vega shows his wife Mia a good time while Marsellus is in Florida. He shows up at Mia’s house and while waiting for her to get ready, she plays a classic song on the sound system. The song was the hit “Son of a Preacher Man”, by Dusty Springfield. This is a classic sequence in the ‘Pulp Fiction’, which has resulted in her being a pop culture icon.
failed television actress. Mia was cast in a failed pilot for the show “Fox Force Five” where she played “Raven McCoy,” who, according to Mia, was “the deadliest woman in the world with a knife.” Now though, she relies on her husband for financial support. Mia’s husband Marsellus is a brutal man and is very protective of his wife. People claim that he once threw a man off a balcony just for giving his wife a foot massage.
Mia loves to let loose and do fun things, regardless of the consequences. She is easily bored, chronically dissatisfied, and has trouble making genuine connections with anyone. As she says, “That’s when you know you’ve found somebody special. When you can just shut the f–k up for a minute and comfortably enjoy the silence.” An infamous quote that tells us a lot about Mia.
