Personal Quote:

I thought, 'I can't believe he's asked me that!' So I said (firmly, through gritted teeth), 'Of course I can, I went to the Royal Academy of Dramatic F***ing Art!' See more »

Gemma's matrilineal great-grandmother, born Jean Specterman, was Jewish (of Polish Jewish descent). The rest of Gemma's ancestry is English, with more distant German and Scottish. See more »
