Woman Crush Wednesday: Gemma Chan

This week’s Woman Crush Wednesday is British actress Gemma Chan.  She is currently the star of Channel 4’s gripping sci-fi drama Humans.  This is her first prime-time role and could see the actress go on to bigger and better things.  Other credits include Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Fresh Meat, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Bedlam, Death in Paradise and The IT Crowd

Least likely to…to go into Law.  Chan studied Law at the University of Oxford but she decided that she wanted a career in acting instead as she had always been passionate about the performing arts.

Impress her with…classical music.  Chan can play the violin and the piano.

Mention…modelling. In 2006 she appeared in the first season of Sky One’s Project Catwalk.  During her modelling career she appeared in campaigns for Nivea, Nokia and Selfridges – and magazines – such as Elle, Cosmopolitan and The Sunday Times Style.

And another thing…Chan is of Chinese descent. Her mother was born in China but raised in Scotland, and her father was born and raised in Hong Kong.
