Early Life

Rosamund Pike was born in London, England on January 27th, 1979. Her father is acclaimed opera singer Julian Pike, and her mother was an opera singer as well. She attended the independent all girls Badminton School in Bristol, but she would travel around Europe with her parents when they had recitals abroad. Because of her parents' work, she had an interest in performing at a young age and learned how to play the cello, but she found she was better at acting than music. A talent scout noticed her in a school production of "Romeo and Juliet" and encouraged her to consider acting professionally. However, she was rejected from all of the theater schools she applied to after graduating high school, so she went to Wadham College at Oxford and studied English literature. She took a year off to focus on acting but graduated with an Upper Second-class honors degree in 2001.

While still attending college, she acted in and helped direct a number of theater productions, including one written by Rhodes Scholar and United Nations University Council member Simon Chesterman, who was a graduate student at the time.
