Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, better known as Rebel Wilson, was born in Sydney. Her parents are professionals in the dog world and the family travels a lot around the world. A shy and rather reserved child, Rebel is nevertheless attentive to the people around her and whom she meets, a trait that will help her in her professional career.

The young woman graduated from the University of New South Wales and took acting classes before directing her own productions, such as the Pizza series in 2003. In order to get her career off the ground, Rebel Wilson chose to go into exile in the United States and more precisely in New York. She then appears briefly in 2007 in Ghost Rider with Nicolas Cage and continues her career with roles in My best friends in 2011, My best men the same year and Bachelorette in 2012.

The actress also plays the character of Patricia in the musical The Hit Girls in 2012. Exceptionally out of the sentimental and romantic comedy realm, Rebel makes an appearance in the action thriller No Pain No Gain in 2013, alongside Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson. In 2015, the actress resumes her role in a second installment of The Hit Girls.
