Jun 03, 2013

Awesome Aussie Rebel Wilson is an actress, comedian and writer, getting her start on TV and eventually making people laugh all the way to Hollywood! Find out more in her Kidzworld Bio.

Feverish Dreams

Rebel Elizabeth Wilson was born in Sydney, Australia and was named after a singer who performed at her parents wedding. Her parents are professional dog handlers, and she has three siblings - two of which were on The Amazing Race Australia! As a teenager Rebel was great at math, and later studied Law and the Arts at university. She discovered her passion for acting though when as an Australian youth ambassador for Rotary International she was sent to South Africa where she contracted malaria and had hallucinations that she was an actress winning an Academy Award. She decided these hallucinations were a sign.

Aussie TV

After studying at the Australian Theater for Young People and spending some time in NYC, people began to see Rebel's talent and she even starred on a couple of Aussie TV shows, like Pizza and The Wedge and earned recognition at home for her work on screen and in the theater, she not only had a talent for performance but for writing comedy as well. She was ready to make the movie for the Australia small screen to the bright lights of Hollywood.

Bridesmaids to Pitch Perfect

Upon arriving in the U.S. it didn't take her long to get signed to an agent, and she landed her break out role in the side splittingly funny comedy Bridesmaids as Kristen Wiig's quirky roommate and was named one of the Top 10 Comics to Watch of 2011 by Variety magazine. She also starred in What to Expect When You're Expecting and Struck By Lightning.

Her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect cemented her place as a comic talent in Hollywood films, and she received several award nominations and won the MTV Movie Award for Best Breakout Performance! Most recently she joined the voice cast of Kung Fu Panda 3.
