- Gina Holden
- Smithers British Columbia
Born in the small town of Smithers, British Columbia, Gina knew she wanted to act the minute she realized what acting really was. At 15 years old, Gina was discovered by a modeling scout and invited to work all around the world. Realizing that opportunities like that don’t happen every day, she jumped at the chance and found herself traveling the world and growing up in many different countries/cities, but working and living in Japan was her ultimate love. Gina embraced the Japanese culture and lifestyle; she really enjoys the people and the food; she even taught herself to speak Japanese. While in Japan, Gina landed the coveted campaign as the face of Shiseido cosmetics and appeared on over 20 different magazine covers throughout the country. It was in the midst of her modeling success, that Gina began to yearn for her first true love, acting. So even though it was hard, after 8 years, she walked away from a successful and lucrative modeling career and headed back to the U.S. to pursue her dream of becoming an actress.
Once in the States, she enrolled in college where she studied Japanese and business. While working two jobs and putting herself through school, Gina decided it was time to enroll in acting classes.
Being on stage was easy since she had performed her whole life and she was overjoyed by the rush of being onstage and entertaining audiences again. Gina knew that acting was her first love and was ready to jump in with both feet. She eventually landed an agent and began booking commercials, which helped pay for her college studies and acting classes. After graduation she worked with children at the YMCA in hopes of becoming a positive role model and influence in their lives. Gina has also volunteered working with adults living with mental and physical disabilities, while attending auditions and continuing her successful acting career.
Gina's big break came when she was cast New Line Cinema's third installment of the Final Destination series, Final Destination 3, which opened at #1 and grossed over $54.1 million dollars at the box office domestically. Her past motion picture and TV credits include a strong supporting role in John R. Leonetti's The Butterfly Effect 2 and guest-starring roles on USA's hit show, "Psych," Showtime's critically acclaimed series "The L Word," The CW's "Supernatural" and Fox's "Reunion" to name a few.
