Gemma Ward Signs Up for ‘Great Gatsby’

ALTAustralian actress/model Gemma Ward is the latest to be added to the cast of Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby.

It’s not yet clear who the model-turned-actress will play, but she joins two fellow Aussies in the adaptation of what is considered by many to be one of the quintessential American novels: Joel Edgerton will portray Tom Buchanan, and Isla Fisher will co-star as his mistress, Myrtle.

The film is already shooting Down Under, with Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role of Jay Gatsby. Ward, 21, played Tamara in this summer’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
