Early Life

She has three siblings.  Gemma attended Presbyterian Ladies’ College and Shenton College to complete her education. She used to act in her school and played the role of the witch in Hansel and Gretel.

Gemma had no intention of becoming a model much less a supermodel. She had a passion for acting instead. In 2002, she and her friend went to a modeling contest named Search for a Supermodel where she was spotted for her unique and fragile looks. She entered the competition and ultimately lost it but she caught the eye of Vivien’s Model agent who made a reel with her.


Gemma started her incredible career in 2003 by appearing in Australian Fashion Week. In a span of months, she gained fame and recognition. Her success paved the way for other baby-doll like models for example Lily Cole Heather Marks and Lisa Cant. At the tender age of 17, Gemma was chosen as the face of Calvin Klein’s Obsession Night perfume billboards. She earned $1.3 million from this job.

She has graced the covers of numerous magazines like Pop, Vogue Thailand, Harper’s Bazaar, Russh, Vogue Paris, Maxim, Vogue India, Elle, Vogue Italia, Vogue China, Elle Australia, Numero Tokyo, Teen Vogue, and Allure. Gemma took a break from modeling in 2008 and returned in 2013. She appeared in the movie Pink Pyjamas. In 2008, she was cast in the drama movie The Black Balloon for which she received positive reviews. Then, she appeared in the horror movie The Stangers.

In 2011, Gemma was cast as Tamara–First Mermaid in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It was a box office success grossing more than $1 billion worldwide. She also appeared in movies The Great Gatsby, The Caged Pillows and Double Dutchess: Seeing Double.
