You know, she'll do a rom-com - not that I ever want to do a rom-com - but then she'll go off and do The Constant Gardener (2005), have a family, and live a quite normal life, it seems. I respect that. See more »

A lifelong fan of karaoke, Gemma once worked as a singer in a south London 'gangster bar' where she was frequently instructed to sing "My Heart Will Go On" whenever things got out of hand with the rowdy patrons. See more »
