Biography

Jeunesse et formation
Ruth Wilson a grandi dans le Middlesex. Elle a trois frères plus âgés qu'elle. Son grand-père, Alexander Wilson, mort à Ealing en 1963, était officier au MI6 et auteur d'une vingtaine de romans d'espionnage, dont les protagonistes, le maître espion Leonard Wallace et l'agent Hugh Shannon préfigurent M et James Bond. Ruth Wilson apprit de sa grand-mère, lorsqu'elle eut 18 ans, qu'il avait mené une double vie digne de ses personnages ! Reconnu polygame, (il avait quatre épouses), il fut arrêté pour fraude, vol et port de fausses décorations.

Après des études d'histoire à l'université de Nottingham, elle entre à la London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), dont elle sort diplômée en 2005.


Carrière
Après avoir joué au théâtre dans des pièces classiques comme Macbeth au sein d'une compagnie qu'elle a créée avec des amis, Ruth Wilson fait ses débuts au petit écran en 2006 en incarnant Jane Eyre dans la mini-série de la BBC. Mais sa passion reste le théâtre, où elle prépare ses rôles avec soin : pour Philistines (Les Barbares) de Gorki en 2007, elle a appris le piano. Pour le rôle de Stella Kovalski, qui lui a valu le Laurence Olivier Awards du meilleur second rôle, dans A Streetcar Named Desire de Tennessee Williams en 2009, elle est allée se plonger dans l'atmosphère du Deep South.

Elle participe à diverses fictions et séries britanniques, avant d'être choisie pour le remake américain du Prisonnier où elle campe N°313. Elle revient l'année suivante en Angleterre pour la série policière anglaise Luther, produite par la BBC, aux côtés, entre autres, d'Idris Elba et Indira Varma ; série dans laquelle elle interprétera Alice Morgan durant les trois premières saisons.

En 2012, alors qu'elle est à l'affiche de la fresque Anna Karénine de Joe Wright, elle tourne avec Johnny Depp et Helena Bonham Carter dans le blockbuster adapté de The Lone Ranger, qui sortira dans les salles durant l'été 2013. Cette même année, elle évolue aux côtés de Tom Hanks et Emma Thompson pour le biopic américain Dans l'ombre de Mary, puis revient en Angleterre pour prêter sa voix au polar indépendant Locke, porté par Tom Hardy.

C'est à la télévision qu'elle se confirme, avec le rôle d'Alison Lockhart dans The Affair, pour lequel elle décroche le Golden Globe 2015 de la meilleure actrice dans une série dramatique dès la première saison.

In 1961, the financially strapped author Pamela "P. L." Travers reluctantly travels from her home in London to Los Angeles to work with Walt Disney at the urging of her agent, Diarmuid Russell. Disney has pursued the film rights to her Mary Poppins stories for twenty years, having promised his daughters that he would produce a film based on them. Travers has steadfastly resisted Disney's efforts because she fears what he would do to her character. However, she has not written anything in a while and her book royalties have dwindled to nothing, so she risks losing her house. Still, Russell has to remind her that Disney has agreed to two major stipulations - no animation and unprecedented script approval - before she agrees to go.
