Rosamund Pike’s biographyThe cold porcelain beauty of this British actress in combination with her temperament and deep dramatic talent has the effect of a bomb. Rosamund Pike has tried images of different characters.
ChildhoodRosamund Mary Ellen Pike was born on January 27, 1979. Her parents are famous musicians. Julian is an opera singer, a professor of music and head of operatic studies at the Birmingham Conservatoire. Mother Caroline is a violinist.
Rosamund received her education in one of the best private schools for girls. Thanks to her parents, the girl grew up in a creative atmosphere: Rosamund learned to play the piano and cello and achieved great success, receiving a diploma of a teaching musician.
BeginningRosamund's first appearance in cinema took place in the 1998 television comedy-drama A Rather English Marriage. The rather small role in which the girl appeared, marked the birth of a star. Just a year later Rosamund took part in the Wives and Daughters series and played one of the lead roles in the Love in a Cold Climate multi-part television project. Megan Dodds and John Light worked along with the actress in the project.
Best rolesEven with her aristocratic beauty and bright dramatic talent Rosamund simply couldn’t become a star of the first magnitude. In 2011, selecting actors for his new project Wrath of the Titans, famous Jonathan Liebesman gave the role of Andromeda to the young British actress. Clemence Poesy and Georgina Haig claimed the role, but the director chose Rosamund, for whom the image became the first lead role in her filmography. Based on ancient Greek myths, the drama starred Sam Worthington, Bill Nighy, Sinead Cusack, and Liam Neeson.
The next film released at the end of 2014 became an event in the world of cinema and brought Rosamund Pike world fame and recognition.
Many star actresses and even Charlize Theron claimed the role in the new picture by David Fincher. However, Rosamund won the palm by auditioning on Skype. Before shooting Fincher invited Rosamund to a bar, where he asked her to join him and drink whiskey. So the famous director wanted to make sure that the actress would cope with the role and Rosamund really did it.Rosamund has repeatedly noted in interviews that she considers the role of Amy in the Gone Girl psychological thriller to be her main role. This is also the opinion of critics, expressing the hope that there will be many more such roles in the filmography of the brilliant actress.
In 2018 premieres of the pictures Beirut and Entebbe took place. In both pictures, Pike played the lead roles, and her partners were John Hamm, Daniel Brühl, and Eddie Marsan.
