Born in 1993 of Spanish and British descent, Gemita has a strong background in horses and swimming. She was in the top synchronised swimming team in the country and won numerous competitions. She has also competed internationally in show jumping and eventing, running and managing her own stud yard in the UK and around Europe.
Gemita's parents; Alejandro Samarra (from Reus, Tarragona) and Diane Samarra (from London, UK) have influenced Gemita's lifestyle massively. Both her parents worked in the circus in Spain, her mother as a professional dancer, trapeze artist and animal handler, her father as a performer, stage-hand and lighting technician. This daredevil blood has definitely passed down to Gemita who has since purused a career in stunt work alongside her modelling.
Gemita played Brea in the hit series Game of Thrones and most recently stunt doubling for actress Léa Seydoux in the 2015 Bond film Spectre. (Stunt credits also include Kingsman, Pressure and 24.)
