Biography

A wickedly talented comedienne-actress-writer, Rebel Wilson started her career in self-penned Australian theater productions before debuting as the leader of a local girl gang, the "Fat Chick 12,"on the television series "Pizza" (SBS, 2000-07). A writer and performer on the Aussie sketch show "The Wedge" (Network Ten, 2006-07), Wilson trained with The Second City in New York and earned a bit part in "Ghost Rider" (2007) as a biker babe interviewed by Eva Mendes. After creating and starring on her own series, "Bogan Pride" (SBS, 2008), Wilson achieved an international breakthrough with a supporting comic turn in "Bridesmaids" (2011). Playing Brynn, the creepy roommate to Kristen Wiig, Wilson stole all her scenes, including a showstopper in which she shows off a free "Mexican drinking worm" tattoo and then attempts to ice it with an open bag of frozen peas. Rocketing onto the actresses-to-watch list, Wilson booked supporting roles in a slew of high-profile projects, including "What to Expect When You're Expecting" (2012), "Struck by Lighting" (2012) and "Ice Age: Continental Drift" (2012). Blessed with a thoroughly unique presence and world-class comic talent, Rebel Wilson was a standout in any project she appeared in.
