Drawing: Rosamund Pike in Hedda Gabler

rosamund pike

British actress and former Bond girl Rosamund Pike played the titular heroine and one of theatre’s most dramatic roles in the touring production of Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler in 2010.

It’s the tale of the newly wedded daughter of an aristocratic general who struggles with an existence she finds devoid of excitement and enchantment. It’s often considered the role for actresses that Hamlet is for male actors.

“Pike sizzles with electrifying energy, gripped by a mania of discontent,” said The Guardian. Critic Charles Spencer said Rosamund’s performance was, “a dangerous, glamorous allure that is deeply thrilling.”

Rosamund signed this quick black fine liner sketch at the Richmond Theatre in March 2010.
