Gabriella Wilde facts
Gabriella Wilde is a young British actress, most famous for her role in The Three Musketeers.
Olivia attended prestigious girls' school Heathfield in Ascot, but had to move after a suspension following "vodka smuggling". Cracking.
She got into the acting biz by sending agents a self-made tape of herself acting scenes from Emma.
Why we love Gabriella Wilde
Go back up to the top of this profile and look at Gabriella Wilde's full name. Soak it up. What a hell of a name it is – six parts long, and all of them unusual. We like that in a woman. Puts us in mind of riding stout horses across windswept moors, sipping brandy from crystal glasses around a roaring fire, and eating whole haunches of roast venison. Good times.
Gabriella Wilde is an actress and a model, and normally goes by Gabriella Wilde, which is far shorter and, we imagine, easier to sign on autographs when she's asked without running out of space and having to use the back of the photograph. Most notably she's appeared in The Three Musketeers (didn't it bother you that the musketeers always seemed to use swords, rather than muskets? It bothered us. Maybe we're not understanding it properly) as Constance Bonacieux, Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Anne of England and general quest-giver to the protagonists.
You might also have seen Gabriella Wilde in St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold (we didn't, if we're honest – nothing against her, it just doesn't seem like our sort of film) and an episode of Doctor Who, where she played a beautiful lady who turned into a horrible vampire that was also an underwater alien, of sorts. Cracking! Though you probably won't have seen her in Il Maestro, a short film in which she plays a cellist, because it all looks a bit serious and hard to get hold of.
