Early life

Pike, born on 27 January 1979 in London,[2] is the only child of opera singers Caroline Friend and Julian Pike.[1][3][4] Her father is a professor of music and head of operatic studies at the Birmingham Conservatoire.[5]

The family travelled across Europe until she was seven, following wherever her parents' performing careers took them.[5] Pike won a scholarship to Badminton School in Bristol,[5] and while appearing as Juliet in a production of Romeo and Juliet at the National Youth Theatre, was noticed by an agent, who helped her embark upon a professional career.[5]

After being turned down by each stage school to which she applied, she gained a place to read English literature at Wadham College, Oxford. She graduated with an Upper Second class degree in 2001,[5] having taken a year off to pursue her acting career, gaining stage experience in David Hare's Skylight, Arthur Miller's All My Sons, and several plays by Shakespeare.[6]
