Whoever she is playing, you will root for her.
"My name is Mary Kate and I pretend to be other people for a living. The rest of the time I'm just a dork."
A winsome young actress who got outstanding praise for her nuanced, rich and realistic portrayals of a wide range of characters. Became known because of roles in dramatic productions and webseries since she was around 19. We can't tell you how long it was since, because a proper lady never reveals her age
. A Lord of the Rings
fan, a vlogger
, and One of Us
She played Lydia Bennet
in The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
, and plays Zelda
and Sansa Stark in the Game of Thrones
-inspired series School Of Thrones
It is only safe to assume that her characters will be cute, and she will play them well...
Ms Wiles is associated with these tropes:
- Breakout Character: Lydia Bennet is a Breakout Character for The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Sansa Stark for School Of Thrones, Zelda, Percy and Hester share the role in Squaresville, but her character started it, and most of the captures from The Woods are about her character, so there is definitely a trend going on...
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: While Lydia Bennet did her best to steal the spotlight from her sister, Lizzie Bennet as played by Ashley Clements, Mary Kate Wiles was actively promoting her and congratulating her for her performance on Twitter. The same can be said for Ashley Clements. She is also ready to work for people who, by their own admission, couldn't pay her a living wage, while Lydia was obsessed by money and fame.
- One of Us: She's a fan of geeky and nerdy things, and she's an avid vlogger.
- Playing Against Type: To the point she has no type anymore, even though she really started with adorable comical roles and mostly has likable-yet-annoying comic relief roles. This is made even more complex between all her multi-layered personas : the Fake Cutie is actually a Manipulative Bastard but turns out to have a Freudian Excuse, the seemingly laid-back Cloud Cuckoo Lander is actually a contemptful example of The Snark Knight while being herself Not So Above It All, and the Annoying Younger Sibling Alpha Bitch is actually a Crazy Awesome Spoiled Sweet Jerk with a Heart of Gold who has a Jerkass Woobie potential...
