Gemma Ward..Australian model/actor
Gemma Ward was born on 3 November 1987 in Perth, Western Australia, the second of four children of Gary Ward, a doctor, and Claire, a nurse. She has an older sister, Sophie (who also became a model), and younger twin brothers, Oscar and Henry. She was educated at the Presbyterian Ladies’ College and Shenton College. Gemma was the family clown whose ambition was acting. Her passion for acting was born in 1997, when she was cast as the witch in a school play of Hansel and Gretel when she was ten.
In early 2008, Ward was reported to have been seeing actor Heath Ledger after media articles linked the two together at end of 2007 holiday celebrations.
Ward and Heath Ledger first met in November 2007 in New York when Ward had just turned 20. Both were struggling with things and they bonded over that. In The Sunday Telegraph 2011 interview, Ward confirmed that they had “developed a relationship and we started seeing each other.” The two then spent Christmas together in their home town of Perth before returning to New York where Ledger died less than a month later, on 22 January 2008.
