Rosamund Pike Biography

Rosamund Pike grew up in London, the only daughter of two professional opera singers. Her key formative years were spent on the European continent, including a liberating few months in Italy as her father worked with modernist composer Hans Werne Henze.

At 16, Rosamund was accepted at the celebrated National Youth Theatre where she spent the following three summers, culminating in her playing the lead role in Romeo and Juliet when she was 18. It was that performance which brought her to the attention of agent Dallas Smith, who spent the next few years closely guiding her career. The play ran over the summer holidays prior to her taking a place at Oxford, where she was to study English Literature at Wadham College. Read Full Bio >>
