Here’s something we just spotted on Tumblr claiming to be a photo of model-cum-actress Gemma Ward on the set of the Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, which has been filming in Ward’s native Australia. This would be a first look at Ward in her role of Catherine, Myrtle Wilson’s (played by Isla Fisher) sister. Although Catherine plays a minor role in the original novel, Ward has managed to reach sixth billing on the film’s IMDB page, which makes us wonder if the role has been expanded. We’re hoping it has, because as excited as we are about a film that brings stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan together, we’d be lying if we said that we weren’t most excited about Gemma.
And check out those costumes, and that hair! We aren’t in the least bit surprised that Catherine Martin–head of production and costume design for the film and Baz’s better half–has pulled out all the stops. We’re not sure if we can wait for the December 2012 release date.
