I’ve been doing drama since I was 4 or 5 years old with my sister. We made up our own shows and done them in front of our family. Then I did a summer camp of acting in my school holidays in Essex and I also did Grease at St.Piers, Lingfeld and played Mary for Christmas.
Then in 2000 I found a drama group called Stars Unlimited that stopped in 2010, but thankfully Sheree and Alice came along and now I’m in Action Replay. I love it. I love doing drama with Action Replay as my friends from Mencap come too. It makes me so happy.
And now I have a main part in our big Christmas show! What is it like being Alice in our show Back To Wonderland? I never thought I would be picked to have the main role. I was wrong. I was waiting for a main role and it is also emotional as my Nanny was called Alice, which was my Dad’s mum.
I’ve learned so much in Action Replay, more than any other drama group. It helps me a lot. I never thought I would get this far in drama. To be part of SAVVY and Action Replay is amazing. Sheree and Alice are just brilliant. Amazing drama teachers. The best drama teachers I could wish for.
Gemma is also a founding member of the Equally Diverse Group and has appeared in a number of professional shows with SAVVY Theatre Company.
