Rebel Wilson

Having trained at the Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) and the famed U.S. comedy school Second City, Rebel started her professional career in 2002 in the theatre writing, producing and performing in the hit plays The Westie Monologues (Belvoir St Theatre, Sydney Fringe Festival, Parramatta Riverside Theatre), Spunks (The Stables Theatre) and the one-woman show Confessions Of An Exchange Student (Melbourne Comedy Festival / Sydney Comedy Festival). She then moved into television where she played ‘Toula’ in five seasons of the SBS Logie-nominated cult comedy Pizza and wrote and performed in 52 episodes of the sketch series The Wedge (Network Ten).  In 2008 she created, wrote, produced and starred in the musical comedy television series Bogan Pride (SBS).

Rebel’s improvisation talents have been showcased on Thank God You’re Here (Network Ten / Seven Network) and Monster House (Nine Network) and she has made memorable appearances on Talkin’ Bout Your Generation (Network 10), World Comedy Tour (Comedy Central), The Breast Darn Show In Town (Comedy Channel), City Homicide (Seven Network), Comic Relief (Seven Network), Bargain (Tropfest 2009), 2010 ARIAs (Network Ten), Rules Of Engagement (CBS), Workaholics (Comedy Central) and in the feature films Ghost Rider (Marvel Entertainment) and Fat Pizza (Village Roadshow).

Rebel moved to the United States in 2010, and shortly after was cast in her breakthrough role as Brynn in the film Bridesmaids. She went on to star in What To Expect When You’re Expecting, Pain And Gain and Struck By Lightning, leading Variety to name her one of their “Top Ten Comics to Watch for 2011”. Rebel’s cameo as Becky in Bachelorette garnered rave reviews followed soon after by the announcement as the first actress to be cast in Pitch Perfect. Her role as Fat Amy earned her several award nominations and two MTV Movie Awards. Rebel reprised her role in the sequels Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015 and Pitch Perfect 3 in 2017.

In 2013 Rebel wrote and starred in the TV comedy Super Fun Night which aired on the ABC network. In late 2014 Rebel appeared in Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb.

In 2016, Rebel featured in the comedy How To Be Single, action comedy Grimsby, and starred as Ursula the sea witch in the all-star concert version of The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl. Rebel made her West End debut as Miss Adelaide in musical Guys and Dolls from June – August 2016 and had a cameo appearance in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

Rebel will soon star alongside Anne Hathaway in a remake of the 1988 comedy film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels titled The Hustle, which Rebel has also co-produced. She will also appear in the comedy Isn’t It Romantic, due for release in 2019.
