What's more, she remembers her fans the second time! Unbelievably sweet and funny. Jem also has the best signature ever - if you're fortunate enough to get an autograph, you'll definitely agree! As for what she's got planned post-Wicked, she has mentioned that she's more of a pop singer than a musical theatre stage actress. Perhaps we'll be hearing more of her...on radio? Fingers crossed! Jemma grew up on the Central Coast of NSW, performing from the age of 4 in various amateur musical theatre productions. At 21 she moved to Melbourne to enhance and develop her skills and opportunities as a Musical Theatre performer.
After a number of commercial engagements, Jemma was cast as the Bride in the Monster Rock and Roll Show (Universal Studios Japan). There she was also cast as Elphaba in a world-first staged adaptation of WICKED, and has since lived and breathed the production and the character of Elphaba, making her even more thrilled to be a part of the Australian premiere. You can hear some of her as Elphaba on Youtube: Defying Gravity, 29/6/08 1pm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oghj6JV4GK0 No Good Deed, 29/6/08 1pm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUBlB0KEdI8 The Wizard and I, 29/6/08 1pm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGpWJHh2nyg Defying Gravity, exact date unknown, 2008: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdtOSn1C4-Y Universal Studios Japan, 16/7/06: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub1-rQw628w Jem also has a solo line to sing in the touching and apt 'For Good' WICKED tribute to Rob Guest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1eQmo7GXvc written by raevenna Read more on Last.fm.
