Gina Bellman Biography
Gina Bellman is a New Zealand-born British actress for the big and small screen. She was born in the year 1966 and celebrates her birthday on July 10 every year. She is best known for her starring role as Sophie Devereaux in the TNT channel's drama series Leverage. For her outstanding performance in the series, she was even nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress in Television, but lost to fellow New Zealand alumna Lucy Lawless.
Bellman is a native of New Zealand as she was born and spent most of her early life there. She was welcomed to the family of Jewish parents with Russian and Polish origin. They had immigrated to New Zealand from England in the 1950s. Her family returned to the United Kingdom when she was 11 years old. Besides that, there is little or no information about her early life, family and how she was raised. Likewise, there is not much known about her educational background.
Gina debuted into the acting industry with an episode of Into the Labyrinth in the year 1982. Two years later, she had a two-episode stint in Grange Hill in 1984. Her fame heightened as she landed the title role in Dennis Potter's drama Blackeyes. That even made her a household name. She is also well known for playing the role of Jane in the sitcom Coupling. Her other notable television credits include Jonathan Creek, Waking the Dead, Little Napoleons, and one-off appearances in Hotel Babylon Only and Fools and Horses. In addition to her television career, she has also appeared in several feature films such as David, Secret Friends, Horse Opera, Silent Trigger, Ted & Ralph, Paranoid, Seven Days to Live, Subterrain, Married/Unmarried, Sitting Ducks, Zerophilia, Permanent Vacation, and many others. In 2007, she co-starred alongside James Nesbitt in the BBC One drama serial Jekyll, a modern-day sequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Since 2008 she started appearing on the TNT serial drama Leverage, starring Timothy Hutton. In 2013 Bellman narrated poetry for The Love Book App, an interactive anthology of love literature developed by Allie Byrne Esiri. In late 2013 she played the role of The Italian Woman in the National Theatre's production of the Georg Kaiser play From Morning to Midnight.
Bellman is among those celebrities who are introvert and do not speak much about their personal life. From what we know, she is a married woman. She is married to Zaab Sethna. The couple dated for some time before deciding to tie the knot on September 2013. They have been blessed by a child and gave birth to a baby girl, Romy, on November 20, 2009 in London. However, this is not Bellman's first marriage; she was previously married to Lucho Brieva. They had married on July 2005. Their relationship did not last as long as expected and they separated with a divorce just two years later in 2007. She has one child with him as well. Zaab and Gina seem to be happily married. From the looks of it, divorce is certainly out of the picture for many more years to come. She is living a prosperous life with her husband and daughter.
She is not only a talented actress, but also has a great personality. She has been blessed with a beautiful face and a great body with sensual measurements. She has a good height and balances her height with a matching weight. She is also active in popular social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
