He is 21 years old and looking at his face you can guess the genes of one of the most famous movie stars. Gaia Wise, daughter of Emma Thompson and Greg Wise, is the spitting image of the british artist, which has been awarded two Oscars (one as a screenwriter), a Golden Globe and two Bafta, among other awards, throughout his career. This was verified at the premiere of the latest Cirque du Soleil show at the Royal Albert Hall in London, which he attended with his father Greg Wise. Gaia combined a red minidress with lace and a V-neckline with a black coat and platform shoes to match the tone of the suit. Style that she has inherited from her mother, as well as her interest in acting, since Gaia has followed in the footsteps of the interpreter of Sense and Sensibility.
Among the titles in which he has participated are It’s never too late to fall in love (2008) and A walk in the woods (2015), although three others are pending release: A Love Worth Fihting For, Shooting Star Y A book about her. In their profiles you can see how close she is to her family because she shares some family remnants like her recent birthday party or a date where her parents saw her on the catwalk, occasions that are combined with snapshots in which she poses like a model and others in which she reflects a natural, fresh and spontaneous personality. His love for nature, the good harmony with his friends or his love of music (he was at the Glastonbury festival) are also reflected in his profiles.
Gaia is also actively involved in the treatment of eating disorders, as she herself suffered from anorexia for three years and had to fight the disease. At the age of 16, he suffered from this ailment that caused him great physical deterioration to the point that he had to receive treatment specialized in 2017. Together with the psychotherapist Noel McDermott, she has shared her experience to help other patients who suffer what she managed to leave behind. “Anorexia makes you think people are crazy. My parents told me ‘Gaia, we heard you train at three in the morning’ and I answered: ‘No, it was the house that was moving, I was asleep’” she once told The Sun. The turning point was a comment from her father who said he “didn’t recognize her anymore” during a conversation that her parents Emma and Greg and her brother Tindy, who is now 35 years old, had with her. At the meeting was one of his best friends. After that encounter, Gaia agreed to professional treatment.
Emma Thompson and Greg Wise met in 1995 when they were part of the cast of Sense and Sensibility, the big screen adaptation of Jane Austen’s book for which the actress received an Oscar for best adapted screenplay. In December 1999, their daughter Gaia was born and shortly after, Tindyebwa Agaba, a Rwandan child soldier who was adopted in 2003 when he was already a teenager (he studied Political Science at the University of Exeter). Since she became a mother, she lives for and for her children: “I will always feel this terrible, irrevocable, overwhelming love for my children”. Emma had already been married for six years to Kenneth Branagh, from whom she separated in 1994.
