Early Life of Rosamund Pike
Pike, who was born in London, is the only child of drama artists Caroline Friend and Julian Pike.
Pike attended Badminton School in Bristol, and while performing as Juliet in a generation of Romeo and Juliet at the National Youth Theater, she was noticed by a specialist, who helped her embark on a professional career.
After being rejected by every stage school to which she applied, she was offered a place to study English writing at Wadham College, Oxford.
She earned an Upper Second-class degree in 2001 after taking a year off to pursue her acting career, participating in David Hare’s Skylight and Arthur Miller’s All My Sons and some of the plays of Shakespeare.
Following graduation, she was offered a role as a Bond young lady and MI6 operator assigned to assist James Bond in Die Another’s Day.
She also appeared in the extraordinary show Bond Girls Are Forever and, a few seconds later, the BAFTA tribute to the James Bond arrangement.
She was the first Bond young lady to attend Oxford.
She appeared in Pride and Prejudice in 2005 as Jane, Elizabeth’s senior sister. In 2012, she portrayed Queen Andromeda in the fantasy epic Wrath of the Titans.
Even though the film was not universally praised by critics, it grossed over $300 million, and critics regarded her performance as one of the film’s highlights.

She has been voicing Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward in the ITV remake of Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds Are Go, which is produced by Weta Workshop, since 2015.
She appeared in Massive Attack’s music video for Voodoo in My Blood, which was inspired by the tram scene with Isabelle Adjani in Andrzej Uawski’s 1981 film Possession.
She won Best Actress at the Oxford International Film Festival in 2017 for her performance as The Woman in the short film The Human Voice, composed and directed by Patrick Kennedy and based on Jean Cocteau’s play La Voix Humaine.
In 2019, she was cast as Moiraine in Amazon Video’s adaptation of Robert Jordan’s fantasy epic The Wheel of Time.
Personal Life of Rosamund Pike
Pike had a two-year relationship with Simon Woods while at Oxford. In Pride and Prejudice, they played the sweethearts, Jane Bennet and Charles Bingley.
She was then engaged to Joe Wright, the director of that production, but they divorced in 2008.
Pike has been married to Robie Uniacke, a businessman and scientific analyst, since December 2009, and they have two children.
When they visited China to promote Gone Girl in 2015, Pike mentioned that Uniacke had given her a Chinese name, and as a fan of Chinese culture, they advised the media to use this as her Chinese name rather than the transliteration of her English name.
In 2015, she signed an open letter for which the ONE Campaign was collecting signatures; the letter was addressed to Angela Merkel and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, respectively, encouraging them to focus on ladies as they assumed leadership of the Group of Seven and the African Union, which would begin to set the needs being developed subsidising before a fundamental United Nations (UN) summit in September 2015, expected to build up new development objectives for the age.
