Born on the 1st of September, 1974 in the heart of world cinema, Hollywood, California, Gorman’s interest in the acting field was justifiable.

He has been non-boastful enough to express that he was the most unexpectedly successful drama in acting. During his time as a musician, he did appear in the visuals of ‘The Streets’ and some relatively famous artist such as Neneh Cherry and Armanda have had him playing on several clubs and stages all-round the world.

An influential part in the film with that success was sure to have him appear him in the latter series. Then his aspirations took him to portray the role of Wiggenhern in the Low Down series when then current star stepped out of the role. He has now got the tilte role in the “British Star of Tomorrow”. And has had the thing that he aspired to hail, ‘The Next Big Money’’. Then it was all flying colors for Gorman as he got the lead in Crimson Peak as impeccable Holly and did earn the worldwide recognition that he always wished and aspired for.

A professional life with no or seldom experience of the struggles of Gorman did the trick for him but was the personal the same? The sets of the comedy-based ‘Jonny English: Reborn’ was said to have come of joy to the star as he was said to have been romantically linked with his co-star, one British equestrian actress .
