Rose Byrne Biography:
Australian actress, Mary Rose Byrne (who acts under the name Rose Byrne) was born on July 24, 1979, in Balmain, a small suburb of Sydney, Australia. From an early age, Rose became interested in performance and acting and attended her first acting class at the age of eight years old. She soon realized her passion and joined the Australian Theatre for Young People. At just thirteen years old, Rose Byrne was scouted by an agent and landed her first movie gig – in Dallas Doll (1994). After this, she gained minor attention in Australia and appeared in various Australian TV shows such as Echo Point and Heartbreak High. These appearances traveled across the pond, where she was soon noticed by American agencies. She was offered her first American acting job in the Hollywood movie, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, where she was cast as the handmaiden to Natalie Portman. That same year, she starred alongside Matt Dillon in City of Ghosts, where she soon became recognized as a sought-after actress. Rose Byrne was then overrun with acting jobs but would gain the most traction when she appeared alongside Kristen Wiig in the hugely popular comedy movie, Bridesmaids (2011). After this, Bryne appeared in major movies like X-Men: First Class (2011), The Internship (2013), Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013), and Neighbors (2014) alongside Zac Efron and Seth Rogen. In recent years, she has continued to star in the X-Men franchise, as well as the Bad Neighbors franchise, and Rose Byrne has numerous upcoming movies in the making.
