The actress – who is taking on a lead role as Sersi in Eternals, this autumn’s Marvel blockbuster, – said that it’s only a ‘recent thing’ that Asian females have been able to be the protagonists of stories.

She said: ‘It’s only a fairly recent thing that Asian females have been able to be the protagonists of stories. 

‘Individual successes are one thing. But structurally, when you look at who can actually get projects green-lit in the UK, who are in those positions of power, those gatekeeping positions – there aren’t that many Asians. There aren’t many people of colour in those positions.’

On standing side by side with others on social causes she went on to explain: ‘If only black people care about Black Lives Matter then nothing’s gonna change.

‘And if only Asians are talking about Stop Asian Hate, nothing is going to change. And it’s only when we stick up for one another, and we stand side by side, that things will shift.’

During the interview Gemma also spoke about her upcoming lead role as Sersi in Eternals which is directed by Oscar-winning Chloé Zhao.

‘First of all, I never expected to be back in the MCU,’ said Gemma, who played the Kree sniper Minn-Erva in 2019’s Captain Marvel.

‘So that was a surprise. And then to be working with an East Asian female director – I would never have dreamt of that, even just a few years ago.’
