Rosamund Pike made her film debut as the Bond girl Miranda Frost in ‘Die Another Day’ in 2002. She was only 23 at that time. Being the Bond girl is what every actress used to dream of and to become one on debut and so young age is a great feat. Before the movie, she made her small screen debut with the television film ‘A Rather English Marriage’, which was released in 1998. She worked in a number of UK television series, including Wives and Daughters (1999), before getting the big break in a Bond movie.
After her debut in a big budget action film, Pike did a few smaller independent films, including ‘Promise Land’ in 2004, ‘The Libertine’ in 2004 for which she won the Best Supporting Actress award at ‘The British Independent Film Awards’. She also starred as one of the Bennet daughters in ‘Pride & Prejudice’ in 2005. She then moved to Hollywood for a couple of films including, ‘Doom’, an action flick which released in 2005 and in the thriller ‘Fracture’ in 2007. But she returned to smaller films with amazing performances in ‘An Education’ in 2009, ‘Made in Dagenham’ in 2010, and in ‘Barney’s Vision’ in 2010, opposite Paul Giamatti.
Pike then appeared in the spy spoof, ‘Johnny English Reborn’ in 2011, and as ‘Andromeda’ in the sci-fi epic, ‘Wrath of the Titans’ in 2012. She starred opposite Tom Cruise in the 2012 action film, ‘Jack Reacher’. But, she is best known today for her role as Amy Dunne in ‘Gone Girl’ opposite Ben Affleck which was released in 2014. She received wide critical acclaim for this role and was also nominated in the best actress category at the Oscars. The movie was directed by David Fincher, who has said that Pike was her first choice as he wanted someone who was not widely known, and Pike having not appeared in any major leading role prior to the film’s commencement, and because he found her enigmatic and couldn’t easily read her.
In 2016, Pike appeared as Ruth Williams in the biographical drama, ‘A United Kingdom’. She then appeared in 2017’s ‘The Man with the Iron Heart’. She was then seen as Rosalee Quaid with Christian Bale in ‘Hostiles’, which released in 2017. She was last seen in 2018’s ‘A Private War’, which is a biographical war drama based on one of the most celebrated war correspondent of present times, Marie Colvin. It was one of her best performance and she has also received a lot of praise for her work in the film. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Rosamund Pike movie and tv show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Rosamund Pike films and tv shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Rosamund Pike movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
