Gemma was in Hollyoaks for five years as troubled teenager Lisa Hunter. She later appeared in ITV's primetime show Soapstar Superstar and last year she bravely stepped into the Aussie jungle to battle in the bush tucker challenges in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!. She has a role in forthcoming Brit flick Boogie Woogie alongside Jamie Winston, Christopher Lee and Heather Graham, which hits cinemas nationwide in August 2008.
EA marketing manager Stuart Lang said: "It's great to have Gemma on board for such a popular gamers' game as Command & Conquer Red Alert 3. We hope that fans of both Gemma and the Command & Conquer™ universe will be delighted at what they see when the game goes on sale in October. She will also be taking part in EA?s Be The One event in Trafalgar Square later this year, which forms part of the London Games Festival."
