SURROGATES

ROSAMUND PIKE (Maggie Greer) began her career at the age of 16 when she discovered her love of the stage while starring as "Juliet” in "Romeo and Juliet.” After starring in many other stage productions such as "The Taming of the Shrew” and "The Libertine,” she eventually found herself starring in her first BBC production "Wives and Daughters,” opposite Michael Gambon, in which she received critical acclaim for her performance.

Pike's first blockbuster appearance was in the MGM / James Bond film "Die Another Day,” alongside Halle Berry and Pierce Brosnan. After Bond, Pike returned to the London stage starring in the Royal Court Theatre production of "Hitchcock Blonde,” directed by Terry Johnson. Due to its enormous success, the play eventually moved to the Lyric Theater in the West End, which was quite an achievement.

In 2004, she began work on Laurence Dunmore's film version of "The Libertine,” opposite Johnny Depp. She portrayed Elizabeth Malet, wife to Depp's Earl of Rochester. The film also starred John Malkovich and Samantha Morton. Pike was rewarded for her extraordinary performance in this film with a 2005 British Independent Film Award for Best Supporting Actor/Actress.

Pike then starred alongside Keira Knightley, Brenda Blethyn and Judi Dench in the Focus Features' film adaptation of the classic Jane Austen novel, "Pride & Prejudice,” directed by Joe Wright. Pike earned rave reviews as well as a 2006 London Film Critics Circle Award for her portrayal of Jane Bennett.

In 2007, Pike was seen opposite Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins in the New Line legal thriller "Fracture,” directed by Gregory Hoblit. She also starred in the Jeremy Podeswa-directed independent film "Fugitive Pieces,” which opened the 2007 Toronto Film Festival. She then starred in the independent film "Devil You Know,” directed by James Oakley and costarring Lena Olin.

Pike returned to the theater, starring at the Old Vic Theater in Patrick Hamilton's Victorian thriller "Gaslight,” directed by Peter Gill. She followed that performance by starring in the independent film "An Education,”directed by Lone Scherfig, which was well-received at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009. Pike was also featured in the independent film "Burning Palms,” directed by Christopher Landon, about five vignettes of life in Los Angeles.

Pike then starred at The Wyndham Theater's "Madame de Sade,” opposite Judi Dench. Shortly after completing this production, she began pre-production on the independent film "Dagenham Girls,” opposite Sally Hawkins and directed by Nigel Cole.

Next up for Pike is the independent film "Barney's Version,” opposite Paul Giamatti and Dustin Hoffman.
