If you’re a big fan of the HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, you’ll surely agree that Gemma Whelan is a phenomenon. A woman with an amazing personality, Whelan has distinguished herself as a comedian, dancer, actress, and singer. But she became famous as Princess Yara from the House of Greyjoy on GOT.
Taking on a role for the American premium cable and satellite TV channel HBO since 2012 is, without doubt, the most amazing part of the English actress’ acting career. In this series, she has attracted a large number of Hollywood actors, actresses, American households, and GOT fanatics from all over the world to her side.
Whelan’s impressive portrayal of Yara Greyjoy, a fierce warrior, in Game of Thrones cemented the long-held belief that she could fit into any character and evoke all the necessary emotions in the role. The GOD is not as old as a hill in the media entertainment industry, having started in 2005, but she has left impressive footprints in several other movies and television shows.
Whelan played the lead role in Gulliver’s Travels (2010) and The Wolf Man, Fries, Shortcrust and Tea, The Wolf Man, Prevenge, and she is currently working on the BBC Two sitcom about William Shakespeare, Upstart Crow.
There is no doubt that the selection of the English actress for Upstart Crow, which premiered on BBC Two on 9 May 2016 as part of the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, has everything to do with her brilliant performances on stage.

The British citizen was born on 23 April 1981 in Leeds Yorkshire, England. She was raised by her parents whose names are not known.
Gemma Whelan Gay/Lesbian
Not only the fans of Whelan are confused about the sexual preference of the super actress, but also the media is not left out. Since Gemma is a very private person, she has never admitted or disproved speculations that she is a lesbian.
It is common knowledge that she has played a lesbian/gay role in the GOT, but based on information on the spot and after a Herculean investigation of her personality, we can confirm that she is not lesbian/gay.
Apart from the fact that there is no record of her having been with any man in the past, she has never been seen with another woman enjoying intimacy. However, Whelan has a boyfriend! yes! We figured that out from her Instagram account.
The actress’s boyfriend is Gerry Howell. On several occasions, Gemma has shared pictures of herself and Gerry having a good time on trips and adventures.

We went to @macmillancancer charity ball last night, this is not the ballroom, it's our hallway, Gerry's head is cocked in order to cover up the electric meter…what a ledge. You can donate to them in your hallway, cocked head or not, or at a ball, or wherever you are, bed? shed? bath? disco? (do people still say disco? I DO) Anyway, they are an incredible charity and they helped my dad so much when he was ill. If you can donate please please do. Ok thanks 👍🏻❤️👍🏻
In fact, in one of her pictures, she particularly mentioned him as her boyfriend.
According to recent reports, Whelan, who has been playing in Game of Thrones for six years, is expecting her first child with Gerry Howell. The actress confirmed her pregnancy in July 2017 and made her debut at the premiere of Game of Thrones LA.
She was also recently spotted with her blooming figure in an episode of Saturday Kitchen. Like Whelan, Howell is an award-winning comedian, actress, and author.
