Rebel Wilson, Sydney native, is an actress/comedienne of merit. Her parents named her after their wedding singer (funny, right?)
In order to avoid being teased at school, Rebel used her middle names (Melanie Elizabeth).
She is known for her role as Toula in the comedy show Pizza. She is also known for her characters on the sketch comedy show The Wedge. Some of her most well-known character portrayals were Fat Mandi, Lucy, and Tina while on this hilarious show.
Following her success with comedy television, Rebel made her way to the big screen, with roles in hit movies Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect. Eventually, she also made it big on the American comedy TV circuit.
