About Rosamund Pike (1979 – )

Rosamund Pike is the only child of opera singers Caroline and Julian Pike. She was born in Hammersmith, London, England on January 27, 1979. Her birth name is Rosamund Mary Elizabeth Pike. She’s also known as “Ros” to family and friends. Her parents' performing careers took the three of them back and forth across Europe until she was seven. Pike earned a scholarship to Badminton School in Bristol and first caught the attention of an agent when she starred as Juliet in a production of Romeo and Juliet at the National Youth Theatre.

Pike made a notable feature film debut in 2002 as a Bond Girl, the icy beauty "Miranda Frost" in Die Another Day. She appeared in the British film Made in Dagenham and in the Canadian film Barney's Version, playing Miriam. In 2011, Pike was cast in the role of Kate Sumner in Johnny English Reborn, a Bond spoof in which she played a psychologist and the title character’s love interest. The film, a sequel to the 2003 film Johnny English, did well at the box office.

In 2012 she played Queen Andromeda in the fantasy epic Wrath of the Titans, replacing Alexa Davalos, who originated the role in Clash of the Titans but had to drop out because of a scheduling conflict. Though it was panned by critics, Wrath of the Titans grossed over $300 million worldwide and Pike was singled out for praise by critics. She also starred as Helen Rodin, the female lead opposite Tom Cruise in the thriller Jack Reacher, which opened to positive critical notice and grossed over $218 million.

While attending Oxford, Pike had a two-year relationship with actor Simon Woods… In 2007 she was engaged to film director Joe Wright, but he called off the wedding the next year.

In 2009, Pike began dating Robie Uniacke, a mathematical researcher. They have a son, Solo (born 6 May 2012). Two years later she gave birth to the couple's second son.

Memorable Quotes

“Filming Pride & Prejudice (2005) was a joy and made for one of my happiest summers ever. It could well be that the story brings out the best in people — and it sounds so cheesy, but we really did behave like a family. The girls playing the younger sisters had never been on a film set before and wanted to socialize all the time, so we picnicked, hung out in a beautiful country house and went swimming naked in a lake. It was idyllic.”
