James Bond Girl Rosamund Pike Opens Up About Working On ‘Jack Reacher’

Rosamund Pike soon to co-star with Tom Cruise in 'Jack Reacher.'

**********UPDATE (12/6/12)*************

Rosamund Pike.  Beautiful.  British.  Blond. Does that really describe the actress who was chosen to star alongside Tom Cruise in the upcoming action crime drama ‘Jack Reacher?

Now that Team TC has seen the action-packed thriller, we can reveal that this incredible actress ignites the screen with her sultry smile combined with a steely determination to uncover a conspiracy.  Check out this latest clip just released from Paramount Pictures featuring Tom’s worthy co-star, Rosamund Pike:

Many of us fell in love with Rosamund in her big screen debut as Miranda Frost in the James Bond film, ‘Die Another Day‘ (2002).

But did you know she was scared out of her wits playing that totally-against-type role?  Or did you know she was college friends with first daughter, Chelsea Clinton (they both attended at the same time Oxford University’s Wadham College)?  Or that her father, Julian Pike, was a famous opera singer?

Here is what we know for sure.  The film ‘Jack Reacher‘ is based on the international best seller, ‘One Shot,’ by Lee Child.  This is the only story out of all 17 Reacher novels that prominently features a female character to play alongside Jack, an infamously solitary vigilante.  Here is an official movie still released this fall by Paramount Pictures (available as a high res download here).

During filming, Rosamund was five months pregnant with her first son (Solo was born in May 2012).  Tom remained committed to her casting and stood by her side throughout filming.  In the lead up to the exciting film opening December 21, 2012, we saw this brief but informative interview Rosamund gave and we wanted to share it with you.
