Gina comes from a showbiz background. Her father, Mitch, was a pop songwriter in the 60s and 70s and her mother was a singer and actress. Gina trained with her sister, Mazz (currently “Killer Queen” in We Will Rock You) at Redroofs Theatre School in Maidenhead in Berkshire. A life treading the boards was inescapable!
Her first West End lead in a musical was playing the young Patsy Cline in “Patsy Cline – A Musical Tribute” at the Whitehall, soon to be followed by playing Claudette Orbison at the same theatre in “The Roy Orbison Story”. She was back in the West End, shortly afterwards, starring as Serena Katz in “Fame” at her favourite theatre – the Cambridge! Subsequently, Gina appeared as Ruby Tuesday in “Carnaby Street” at the Arts Theatre, followed by the critically acclaimed production of “One Touch Of Venus” at the Kings Head theatre in Islington, in which she starred as Gloria Kramer. Gina has also appeared in a number of plays, including “Broken Journey” at the Kings Head and “Fuddy Meers” at the Arts. In 2003, another West End appearance was to follow as leading lady, Georgie, in “The Full Monty” at the Prince of Wales theatre.
Other work includes numerous workshops for new musicals; pantos, tours and adverts for MFI, Littlewoods, Special K and Harper Collins, amongst others.
Her most recent feature film was “Sorted”, in which she played actress, “Jo” and her most recent TV appearance was as WPC Berry in “Judge John Deed”.
Gina loves writing and acting in various comedy programs and wherever possible she does so with her sister. They played “Comedy Central Live” in Hollywood together and they have a number of ongoing comedy projects in development with Endemol at the moment, in this country.
Voice Overs are a major part of Gina’s life and she has completed several cartoon animations, computer games and enjoys regular English Language work, as well as session singing and concerts, up and down the country.
Gina is delighted to have joined the cast of “Chicago”. She is playing (and loving) the role of “Mama Morton”, back at the Cambridge theatre in the West End again, after taking a little time out to have her two angelic little boys, Joe & Max.
