Annabelle Wallis (born 25 September 1984) is an English actress, best known for her role as Jane Seymour in Showtime's period drama The Tudors (2009–10), Bridget in ABC's drama Pan Am (2011), Grace Burgess in the BBC's drama Peaky Blinders (2013–14) and Mia Gordon in the supernatural horror film Annabelle (2014).[1]

Personal life[edit]

Maternal niece of Richard Harris, Wallis was born in Oxford, but spent much of her childhood in Portugal attending Saint Dominic's International School. She speaks fluent English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish. She now lives in London.

Career[edit]

In Portugal, she did several short films before she moved to London to pursue a career in movies. In London, she did some advertisements and went to drama school.

In 2009, Wallis starred as Jane Seymour in season three of the Showtime drama series The Tudors with Jonathan Rhys Meyers.[2] She took over from Anita Briem, who quit the role at the end of the second season. She returned as Jane Seymour in a dream sequence to The Tudors for the fourth (and final) season in mid-2010, which was confirmed when the first promotional picture of the season showed Jane (along with King Henry VIII, Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr) on the cover.

In 2010, Annabelle was cast in W.E., directed by Madonna, and in 2011 had a minor role in the film X-Men: First Class. In 2013, she appeared as double-agent Grace Burgess in the BBC drama Peaky Blinders starring alongside Cillian Murphy and Sam Neil.[3][4] In 2014, she starred in the horror film Annabelle, a spin-off of 2013's The Conjuring.[5]
