Who am I?

Woman’s Day (NZ) - - Puzzles -

I was born in 1984 in New York, the mid­dle of three chil­dren to an Amer­i­can mother and English father. I at­tended pres­ti­gious pri­vate schools and hol­i­dayed each sum­mer with Dad’s fam­ily in Ire­land. Both my par­ents were jour­nal­ists and from a young age, I was sur­rounded by their artis­tic friends, in­clud­ing stars like Mick Jag­ger. Af­ter high school, I planned to go to uni­ver­sity, but in the end, I pur­sued an act­ing ca­reer, at­tend­ing drama school in Ire­land. In 2003, I landed a ma­jor role on TV mini-se­ries Skin, and the fol­low­ing year, I had a re­cur­ring part on TheO.C. Over the next cou­ple of years, I branched out into movies, star­ring along­side Paul Walker in the film Bob­byZ. In 2007, I was cast as one of the lead­ing char­ac­ters on Hugh Lau­rie’s med­i­cal drama House. The show made me a star and I started to land big films, in­clud­ing Cow­boys&Aliens, YearOne and Tron:Legacy. In 2011, I met my cur­rent part­ner, Ja­son Sudeikis, and to­gether we’ve raised two chil­dren, Otis and Daisy, as I’ve con­tin­ued to mix movie work, ac­tivism and be­ing the face of big brands Revlon and H&M.
