Do you like Gemma Chan?
Gemma grew a calm and diligent girl, she learned to play the violin and piano in a music studio, professionally enrolled in swimming and ballet. She attended the prestigious Newstead Wood School for Girls, where she was considered one of the best students.
Receiving a certificate of secondary education, she continued her studies at Worcester College at Oxford University, where she learned the basics of international law and jurisprudence. After a successful internship at the large Slaughter and May law firm, she unexpectedly decided to change her profession and become an actress. Her idea shocked her parents who knew how difficult it was for children of immigrants to succeed in a foreign country. Nevertheless, Gemma insisted on hers, went to London, and entered the acting school at the Drama Centre London.
But Miss Chan's rapid career in the modeling industry didn’t knock her off the intended path. She still dreamed of the stage and receiving the Drama Centre London diploma in 2008, got a job at one of the leading metropolitan theaters. There are a lot of bright theatrical roles played on prestigious London scenes in her creative thrift-box, but widespread fame came to Gemma thanks to her roles in the series.

The young actress wasn’t also left unnoticed in the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) spy action film, where she was accompanied by Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley. After the release of the picture, Chan was noticed by the producers of the Humans series and was invited to play the role of servile synth Anita. Gemma had to work much on facial expressions, gestures, and movements, to reliably reincarnate into the bearer of an artificial mind and harmoniously get used to such an unusual way. The series gathered a multimillion audience from the screens and was extended for another two seasons and the long-awaited fame and world popularity finally came to Chang.

In 2016 she played a key role in the widescale screening of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them bestseller by Joanne Rowling and starred in the cult Transformers: The Last Knight, which finally secured her title of a first magnitude blockbuster star.
