From very early on in her life, the British actress Rosamund Pike was immersed in the art of performance. Both of her parents were involved in the arts; her mother was an Opera singer, and her father was a professor of music and operatic studies at the acclaimed Birmingham Conservatory. Due to this, Pike’s performance-based career seems as though it was destined to be. The actress made her film debut in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day, where she played Bond girl Miranda Frost alongside Halle Berry, who played Jinx, and Pierce Brosnan, who starred as James Bond himself. This role was a huge stepping stone in Pike’s career that led her to create some of the iconic work she’s done since.
