There are some people who the camera just loves. Perhaps that's why many models make the leap to acting.

Gemma Ward made her modeling debut at the age of 15 in her native Australia. Within two years she was walking New York runways and became the face of Calvin Klein's Obsession Night perfume billboards, bumping Kate Moss from the job. She made her Hollywood debut as "Dollface," one of three masked intruders in the 2008 suspense thriller "The Strangers." She's also played a mermaid in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (pictured) and had a minor role in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" in 2013.
