For the uninitiated amongst you, it's time to get to know Gwen. She trained as a semi-professional gymnast before taking up acting and counts Simon Callow as a mentor. Her androgynous looks have drawn comparisons with Tilda Swinton and at over 6 ft tall with a shock of platinum blonde hair cut into a crop, this is one striking lady.

In fact, we've learned that photographer Polly Borland became so intrigued by her stature that she made Gwendoline the subject of a series of photographs in 1998, for which she posed mostly naked.
