Gemma Chan Wikipedia

Chan made her professional debut in the Horror Channel miniseries When Evil Calls, which aired in 2006. She was a contestant in the first season of Project Catwalk, a reality show. In 2008, Chan made her stage debut in the UK premiere of Bertolt Brecht’s final piece, Turandot, at London’s Hampstead Theatre. Chan played geologist Mia Bennett in the BBC’s Doctor Who special “The Waters of Mars” in the autumn of 2009. The episode was later nominated for a Hugo Award. In the same year, Chan starred in Exam (2009), which received mixed reviews when it opened at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

She made an appearance on Channel 4’s Fresh Meat later that year. She filmed a film for Amnesty International to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a supporter of human rights. Chan appeared as Kiera, an “impulsive” and “free-spirited” woman, in series two of Sky Living’s horror thriller Bedlam in 2012. True Love, a five-part semi-improvised television series created by Working Title for BBC One, also featured her.  Chan got to know her co-stars on-site and was given the freedom to “flesh out” her role during the scripted scenes.

Chan starred in the action-thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014), which received mixed reviews and a modest box office haul. In the French comedy-drama Belles Familles (2015), she played Chen-Lin, the protagonist’s girlfriend, which premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. Chan was also nominated for five BAFTAs for his role as the American witch Madame Ya Zhou in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016).

In Josie Rourke’s directorial debut, the historical drama Mary Queen of Scots (2018), Chan played Elizabeth Hardwick. The film premiered at the AFI Fest. Because Chan’s role was a white woman, her casting “provoked uproar among internet trolls.” “If John Wayne can portray Genghis Khan, then I can play Bess of Hardwick,” Chan said, adding that “art should represent life now.”

Chan debuted in Captain Marvel (2019) as Minn-Erva, a sniper who is a member of the Kree Starforce. The part called for a lot of prosthetic makeup, which was characterized as “four layers of airbrush paint” that took four hours to apply. To critical acclaim, the film had the sixth-largest opening of all time.
