Olivia Wilde Biography
Born in New York City on March 10, 1984, Olivia Wilde was christened Olivia Cockburn but changed her family name for acting purposes. A love of the craft inspired her to pursue it as a career following graduation.
Wilde's first role came in 2003 in the exciting but short-lived TV drama Skin, in which she played Jewel Goldman. When the show's execs announced Skin would not be returning for a second season, Olivia took the news in stride and concentrated on her personal life. She married documentary filmmaker Tao Ruspoli that same year.
It was her next television role, however, that really put her on the map. Cast as temptress Alex Kelly on The O.C., Olivia rocketed to stardom in 2004 and 2005 as she stole the show and attracted many, many male fans. As Wilde looks to continue on as an important character on the popular FOX show, she's also trying her hand at film. After starring in Girl Next Door (2004) with Elisha Cuthbert, Wilde has five films in the works, including Alpha Dog with Sharon Stone and Running with Scissors, co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Annette Bening, Joseph Fiennes and Alec Baldwin.
