After her screen debut in the television film A Rather English Marriage (1998) and television roles in Wives and Daughters (1999) and Love in a Cold Climate (2001), she received international recognition for her film debut as Bond girl Miranda Frost in Die Another Day (2002), for which she received the Empire Award for Best Newcomer.

She also received British Independent Film Award nominations for An Education and Made in Dagenham (2010)

Early life

Pike, born on 27 January 1979 in London, is the only child of opera singers Caroline Friend and Julian Pike.

 

Pike attended Badminton School in Bristol, and while appearing as Juliet in a production of Romeo and Juliet at the National Youth Theatre, was noticed by an agent, who helped her embark upon a professional career.

 

After being turned down by each stage school to which she applied, she gained a place to read English literature at Wadham College, Oxford. She graduated with an Upper Second-class honors degree in 2001, having taken a year off to pursue her acting career, gaining stage experience in David Hare’s Skylight, Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, and several plays by Shakespeare.

 

Career

While she was still at Oxford, Pike acted in and directed various plays, including one by Simon Chesterman, who was then a graduate student. She also made appearances on British television shows, including A Rather English Marriage (1998), Wives and Daughters (1999), and Love in a Cold Climate (2001), a miniseries based on Nancy Mitford’s novels The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate. She also appeared as Sarah Beaumont in an episode of the series Foyle’s War.

 

Personal life

While at Oxford, Pike was in a relationship with Simon Woods which lasted two years. They later played the lovers Jane Bennet and Charles Bingley in Pride & Prejudice. She was then engaged to the director of that production, Joe Wright, but they broke up in 2008.

Since December 2009, Pike has been in a relationship with Robie Uniacke, a businessman, and mathematical researcher, and they have two sons. In 2015, when they visited China to promote Gone Girl, Pike mentioned that Uniacke had given her a Chinese name 裴淳华 (pinyin: Péi Chúnhuá), and, being fans of Chinese culture, they requested the media to use this as her Chinese name rather than the transliteration of her English name.

In 2015, Pike signed an open letter for which the ONE Campaign had been collecting signatures; the letter was addressed to Angela Merkel and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, urging them to focus on women as they would serve as the head of the Group of Seven (G7) and the African Union (AU), respectively, which would start to set the priorities in development funding before the main United Nations (UN) summit in September 2015, supposed to establish new development goals for the generation.
