Biography

Despite having little onscreen experience to her name, actress Olivia Wilde emerged as a star thanks to her scene-stealing portrayal of the temptress Alex Kelly on the popular teen drama "The O. C." (Fox, 2003-07). Prior to that, Wilde had only the short-lived "Skin" (Fox, 2003) and a small supporting role in "The Girl Next Door" (2004) under her belt. But her turn on "The O.C." propelled her to stardom, opening doors to both features and television. It was her work on the small screen, however, that proved the biggest boon to her career. After starring in another ratings-deprived series, "The Black Donnellys" (NBC, 2007), she joined the cast of the popular "House" (Fox, 2004-2012), which not only exposed her to a wider audience, but also gave her the opportunity to stretch her creative muscles. Wilde continued to maintain a high profile and began landing roles in major studio features like the Harold Ramis comedy "Year One" (2009) and the long-awaited sequel "Tron: Legacy" (2010). She had a leading role in the big-budget sci-fi/Western hybrid, "Cowboys & Aliens" (2011), as well as the raunchy comedy "The Change-Up" (2011) and the dystopian sci-fi thriller "In Time" (2011), all of which showed the young actress was capable of attracting an audience in a variety of mediums.
