Jemma Rivera is a remarkable actor.
I cast her in the mini-series 'East West 101' where she gave a phenomenal performance. In every respect she dedicated herself to the series as an ideal professional and priceless collaborator. She is a particularly accomplished actor and immensely talented artist; her dedication to her craft is exceptional. Jemma has an amazing career ahead of her and definitely has ‘lead’ stamped on her forehead.

Jemma commands your attention when on stage or in frame, she has the same qualities found in some of the greatest Chekhov actors in the world, she has the ability to stand 10 feet tall when she performs. I have no doubt in my mind that she will go on to be a star of stage and screen and I only hope that I get the opportunity to work with her again in the future.

I had the pleasure of working with Jemma when we cast her as Lara Croft in a promotional Tomb Raider TVC. She's a great presence on-set, with a keen professionalism that made a shoot involving long hours - with lots of stunts and wirework - an absolute pleasure. Her physical confidence, charisma and cat-like agility made her a natural for the character. She's a unique talent.

Jemma was such a breeze and delight to work with. She not only understands the craft of acting, but inspires it with great ideas. Ask her about her gutteral chanting! She is very passionate and it shows in her performance. I look forward to working with Jemma again.
