American human rights activist, journalist, lawyer, and former U.S. government advisor from a noted family, the son of Mia Farrow and grandson of Australian director John Farrow. He is also the legal son of filmmaker Woody Allen but may possibly be the biological son of Frank Sinatra. His mother had three boys by her former husband, Andre Previn, and five adopted kids. He was named after baseball player Satchel Paige and his maternal grandmother, actress Maureen O'Sullivan. He was given the surname "Farrow" rather than "Allen" because his parents "didn't want one child named Allen amidst two Farrows and six Previns." He was a subject of his parents' well-publicized custody dispute in 1992.

A child prodigy, he began college at Simon's Rock at age 11. He graduated from Bard College at 15 and a year later was accepted to, and later graduated from, Yale University Law School. He deferred the program so that he could work with Unicef. In 2004 he began working on the Darfur region in Sudan and began writing accounts of the conflict and starvation there for major news outlets and magazines. In 2011, Farrow was appointed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Special Adviser for Global Youth Issues and Director of the State Department's Office of Global Youth Issues. He has written essays, op-eds, and other pieces for several periodicals. From February 2014 through February 2015, Farrow hosted Ronan Farrow Daily, a television news program that aired on MSNBC. As an adult he prefers to be known as Ronan Seamus Farrow. In 2013, Mia said Ronan could be Sinatra's child.

In late 2017, Farrow's articles in The New Yorker helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations. For this reporting, The New Yorker won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, sharing the award with The New York Times. His subsequent investigations exposed similar allegations against Eric Schneiderman and Les Moonves, which led to the resignations of both in 2018. Farrow also investigated the concealment by the M.I.T. Media Lab of its involvement with Jeffrey Epstein, leading to the resignation of the director of the Media Lab, Joi Ito, and an internal investigation by M.I.T.

Farrow is gay. His fiancé is podcast host and former presidential speech writer Jon Lovett. The couple has been together since 2011.
