We’ll have dinner at Rosa’s Thai or Cây Tre on Dean Street and catch up on our weeks.
I don’t like to make too many plans for afterwards; sometimes we end up going elsewhere for drinks or dancing but it’s usually spontaneous. I live with my boyfriend, Jack Whitehall [24, the actor and comedian].
GEMMA Chan is a model turned actress, but she prefers to be known simply as an actress — modelling was just something she did to pay for drama school after abandoning a career in law.
With Jack leaving Fresh Meat behind to hit Hollywood with his first major film role (in the ensemble comedy Mother's Day) and Gemma about to star in the highly anticipated Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, it's safe to say we'll be seeing a lot more of this power couple in the second half of 2016.My mum’s parents escaped China during a difficult time in its history, so I think my parents felt a bit ambivalent towards the country when I was younger.Will Whitehall be able to resist making jokes at Gemma's expense about her always being the bridesmaid, never the bride, in his stand-up shows?But the Portuguese chicken shack was where she shared a first date with boyfriend Jack Whitehall after they met on the set two years ago.‘He didn’t even offer to pay, we split it,’ she says with a warm, grammar school-polished accent.
