Gone Girl’s Rosamund Pike
Posted on September 30, 2014 at 8:00 am
Rosamund Pike delivers a stunning breakthrough performance in this week’s “Gone Girl.” She’s been a favorite of mine for a long time, for her elegant voice and precise acting choices. It’s a good excuse to check out some of her other films. The daughter of opera singers, she has a degree in English literature from Oxford. She has appeared opposite Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins (“Fracture”) and Tom Cruise in “Jack Reacher,” played a Jane Austen character (“Pride and Prejudice”), a Bond Girl (“Die Another Day”), and was Queen Andromeda in “Wrath of the Titans.” She will be in the upcoming “Thunderbirds” television series.
She played Miranda Frost in “Die Another Day.”
She was the oldest Bennett girl (the sweet, pretty one) in “Pride and Prejudice” with Kiera Knightly and Carey Mulligan.
She was married to an auto executive but sympathetic to the women working for equal pay in “Made in Dagenham.”
In “An Education,” she was a kind-hearted but slightly dim party girl, again with Mulligan.
