Annabelle Wallis is a British television and film actress. She is best known for her roles on series such as "The Tudors" and "Pan Am," as well as the horror film, "Annabelle."
Annabelle Wallis (originally Annabelle Wallace) was born in Oxford, Oxfordshire, England on September 25, 1984. The maternal niece of legendary actor, Richard Harris, it comes as no surprise that Annabelle eventually found her way into the profession as well. Of course, this was not until later in her lifetime, as she spent most of her childhood years living near Lisbon, Portugal, where along with being surrounded by people of all different cultures, she was able to pick up on many languages. In fact, she can speak English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish fluently.
After spending 17 years in Portugal and attending Saint Dominic's International School, Annabelle decided it was finally time to move back to London, England and explore her roots. This exploration also lead to her attending drama school, which in turn landed her an agent rather quickly, and her first acting gig soon after that. Annabelle has described the process of transitioning into acting after moving to England as "quite organic," and soon enough she was booking acting jobs on a fairly regular basis. After landing a starring role in the Bollywood film, "Dil Jo Bhi Kahey..." in 2005, Annabelle continued to book several small roles in television and film for several years.
By 2009, Annabelle landed her biggest role to date on the Showtime series, "The Tudors," replacing actress Anita Briem in the role of Jane Seymour. Her success in television would go on to land her future roles on such series as "Pan Am," "Strike Back," and BBC's "Peaky Blinders." But her success was not limited to television. Annabelle has also starred in such films as Madonna's "W.E.," "Snow White & the Huntsman," and horror film, "Annabelle," which was a spinoff to the incredibly popular film, "The Conjuring."
