Early Life and Career

Born on January 27, 1979, in London, England, actress Rosamund Pike is known for her work in such films as Die Another Day (2002), An Education (2009) and Gone Girl (2014). She had an unusual upbringing. Pike is the only child of two professional opera singers and spent much of her childhood accompanying them on tour. As she explained to New Statesman, her desire to become an actress came from "seeing all the drama, close up" as she watched her parents rehearse and perform.

At the age of 11, Pike enrolled at the Badminton School. She then went on to study at Oxford University's Wadham College. During her student days, she took acting roles to help pay her school costs. Pike appeared on the British television movie A Rather English Marriage (1998) as well as mini-series Wives and Daughters (1999) and Love in a Cold Climate (2001).

James Bond and Hitchcock

Soon after completing her studies, Pike landed a major break when she won a part in Die Another Day (2002) starring Pierce Brosnan as legendary spy James Bond. She really didn't know what to expect. "Before I was cast as a Bond girl, I had never actually seen a James Bond movie," Pike told W magazine. The following year, she took a different type of challenge. Pike took to the London stage in a production of Hitchcock Blonde. Her performance brought her strong reviews and even raised a few eyebrows. For one scene, Pike wore high-heeled shoes and nothing else.
