In Portugal, Annabelle Wallis did several short films before she moved to London to pursue a career in film. In London, she did some advertisements and looked into drama schools before ultimately deciding to find an agent.
In 2005 she landed a lead role in the Bollywood film Dil Jo bhi Kahey, though the film did not fare well at box office. In 2009, Wallis starred as Jane Seymour in season three of the Showtime drama series The Tudors. She replace Anita Briem in the third season due to conflicting dates with New Line Cinema over Anita's previous commitment to the movie Journey to the Center of the Earth. She returned as Jane Seymour in a dream sequence to The Tudors for the fourth (and final) season in mid-2010.
In 2010, Wallis was cast in the film W.E., and in 2011 had a minor role in the film, X-Men: First Class. She starred as Grace Burgess in the BBC drama Peaky Blinders, from 2013 to 2016. In 2014, she starred in the horror film Annabelle, a spin-off of 2013's The Conjuring.
She also starred in The Mummy (2017) as Jenny Halsey, an archaeologist.
In April 2018, she was announced to be Cartier's ambassador for jewellery and the new face of the Panthere de Cartier watch.
