Gemma has recently been announced as part of the cast for 2013's Jeff Buckley biopic MYSTERY WHITE BOY and comedy thriller THE WRIGHT GIRLS directed by Andy Fickman.

In 2011, Gemma voiced the character of Shelley in A TURTLE'S TALE: SAMMY'S ADVENTURE, an animated feature including voices from John Hurt and Dominic Cooper. She also starred in the title role in TAMARA DREWE directed by award- winning director Stephen Frears, opposite Dominic Cooper, Luke Evans and Tamsin Greig. In 2010, Gemma appeared alongside Sam Worthington as the goddess Io in Louis Letterier's remake of the 1981 epic CLASH OF THE TITANS, based on the classic Greek myth. She also played the lead female role of Princess Tamina in Disney's PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME, directed by Mike Newell, starring alongside Hollywood stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Sir Ben Kingsley. In 2009, Gemma starred in J Blakeson's independent film THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED, a thrilling tale of kidnapping and intrigue in which she played the title role alongside Martin Compston and Eddie Marsan.

Amongst her other film credits, Gemma starred in Richard Curtis' THE BOAT THAT ROCKED, a period comedy set in the 1960's co-starring a host of greats such as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy and Emma Thompson and in 2008, Gemma starred as iconic Bond Girl Strawberry Fields in QUANTUM OF SOLACE, directed by Marc Forster and starring Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench.

She also returned to the stage in November 2010 at the internationally renowned Almeida Theatre in Henrik Ibsen's THE MASTER BUILDER, for which Gemma's performance earned her critical acclaim for her 'spellbinding' turn as Hilda Wangel.

After gaining an award for 'Best Supporting Actress for Kent', she gained a full scholarship to RADA where she took lead roles in productions such as AN IDEAL HUSBAND, TITUS ANDRONICUS and THE BEGGAR'S OPERA.
