How was the early life of Rose Byrne?

Rose Byrne was born in an Australian suburb outside of Sydney under the name Mary Rose Byrne. Her parents are Scottish and Irish by birth. Her father was a market researcher and statistician, and her mother was an administrator in a school. She has three older siblings and has described her family as tightly connected. Her father was an agnostic and her mother was an atheist, so she grew up in a secular home.

Byrne believes that her family’s support helped her stay grounded during her early years as a celebrity. At the age of 8, she joined the Australian Theatre for Young People. She started taking acting classes at her sister’s suggestion. Each drama school rejected her when she applied as a teenager.
