Personal life[edit]

Wallis was born in Oxford, England, but she spent much of her childhood in Portugal. She attended the Saint Dominic's International School in São Domingos de Rana, Cascais, near Lisbon.

She speaks fluent English and Portuguese. Annabelle also speaks some French and Spanish.

Career[edit]

In Portugal, she did several short films before she moved to London to pursue a career in film. In London, she did some advertisements and looked into drama schools before ultimately deciding to find an agent.

In 2009, Wallis starred as Jane Seymour in season three of the Showtime drama series The Tudors.[1] 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.

In 2010, Annabelle was cast in the film W.E., and in 2011 had a minor role in the film, X-Men: First Class. She starred as Grace Burgess in the BBC drama Peaky Blinders, from 2013 to 2016.[2][3] In 2014, she starred in the horror film Annabelle, a spin-off of 2013's The Conjuring.[4]

She also starred in The Mummy (2017) as Jenny Halsey, an archeologist who secretly works for the monster-hunting organisation known as Prodigium.

As of April 2018, she was announced to be Cartier's ambassador for jewellery and the new face of the Panthere de Cartier watch.
