Career

Wilde began her career as a model. Spotted at age 14 by Naomi Campbell, she joined her agency Premier Model Management and appeared in campaigns for companies including L.K.Bennett, Lacoste, Abercrombie & Fitch, Burberry, Topshop and posed for InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Vogue and Nylon.

In 2007, she was named the second-most-eligible girl in Britain but rejected press attention and the "It girl" label. She did not do her first interview until 2008, when she said: "I don't understand why I got anywhere near such a list because I have done nothing to help it. It's the same with my sister Isabella – we both avoid the society thing. We never go to parties, we never hang out in the clubs associated with all that – we are incredibly private."

In December 2009, Wilde made her acting debut in the adventure comedy film St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold. In May 2010, Wilde appeared in an episode of the BBC television series Doctor Who.

In December 2010, Wilde was announced to have been cast in her film debut in the adventure film The Three Musketeers, an adaptation of the novel of the same name. Wilde portrayed the role of the queen's lady-in-waiting Constance Bonacieux and starred alongside Orlando Bloom and Logan Lerman. The film was released in October 2011 and went on to make over $132 million worldwide. The film was poorly received by critics with a rating of 24% on Rotten Tomatoes based on reviews from 90 critics.

In March 2012, Wilde was cast in the ABC Sci-Fi television pilot Dark Horse. The series centers on a science student who learns that he is the chosen one, tasked with destroying the forces of evil. The pilot was not picked up by ABC for the 2012–2013 television season. That same year Wilde starred in the Short Film Il Maestro and is attached to another film titled Squatters.

As well as Dark Horse, Wilde was cast in the MGM and Screen Gems' remake, Carrie, that same month (as Sue Snell). The film was directed by Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce and starred Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore. Filming began in June 2012 and it was released in October 2013.

In 2014, she starred in the remake of Endless Love, opposite Alex Pettyfer.

In 2016 she played Caroline Penvenen in the second series of the BBC drama Poldark.

In 2020, she portrayed the role of Raquel in Wonder Woman 1984.
