Who is actress Gemma Whelan from “Game of Thrones”?
Born Gemma Elizabeth Whelan on the 23rd of April 1981, in Leeds, Yorkshire England, Gemma Whelan is a 37-year-old Caucasian actress and comedian, perhaps best known for portraying the reckless heiress Yara Greyjoy in one of the most popular shows of all time, “Game of Thrones”.
Early Life and Education
There is no data regarding her early employment history until 2005, when Gemma participated in her first big official play, entitled “Newsrevue” at the Edinburgh Festival. After that, she was seen in almost a dozen plays, which undoubtedly served as a springboard for her career leap into cinematography. Her TV screen debut took place in 2006, when she landed a minor role in the TV series entitled “The Enforcers”, going on to enact more than several characters in various films and TV shows. As her popularity and recognition steadily rose, so did her chances to star. It’s important to note that Gemma is also a stand-up comedian, and during this time she was also doing comedy. Finally, in 2012, she got her biggest break by participating in the making of the eventually legendary “Game of Thrones.” At the moment, Gemma is involved in two shoots.

We went to @macmillancancer charity ball last night, this is not the ballroom, it's our hallway, Gerry's head is cocked in order to cover up the electric meter…what a ledge. You can donate to them in your hallway, cocked head or not, or at a ball, or wherever you are, bed? shed? bath? disco? (do people still say disco? I DO) Anyway, they are an incredible charity and they helped my dad so much when he was ill. If you can donate please please do. Ok thanks ??❤️??
