Actress Olivia Wilde

Wilde about Olivia? :-)

Olivia Wilde became a breakout sensation on American television when starred in the hit medical drama "House."  She played Dr. Remy Hadley, a member of the diagnostics team of Dr. Gregory House (played by Hugh Laurie) at a New Jersey teaching hospital.  She joined the series in 2007 and stayed for the final five of the show's eight seasons.

Though she's done a few movies, television remains the medium she's associated most with.  She played a bisexual character, Alex Kelly, on the second season of the Orange County, California-based drama "The O.C.," and she played Jenny Reilly in the short-lived series "The Black Donnellys," about Irish-American gangsters.

Oh, and I understand that she did a very interesting photo shoot for Glamour!

Fun fact: Olivia Wilde's real last name is Cockburn. She got her celebrated surname from writer Oscar Wilde.
