Her recent Golden Globe has turned the Hollywood spotlight onto Ruth Wilson, but the British theatre and screen star had already started collecting a successful string of awards back home in the United Kingdom.

Wilson originally graduated from a degree in history after leaving school, then went on to study acting at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. She then formed a production company with a few friends, and her acting career continued to grow on both the stage and screen.

Having won two Olivier awards for performances in ‘Anna Christie’ and ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ in London’s West End, Wilson’s roles in television and film kept up, earning her further nominations internationally. Currently, she is playing opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the acclaimed play, ‘Constellations’, on Broadway, and her recent success is bound to keep the actor in the steady spotlight.

Take a look at five of Wilson's stellar roles.
