Gina Bellman is a New Zealand-British actress.

Gina’s parents were Polish Jews and Russian Jews who moved from England to New Zealand. The family returned to London, England, when Gina was eleven years old. She is married to Zaab Sethna, with whom she has a daughter.

Gina has stated:

New Zealand was very outdoorsy… It was very un-Jewy. In fact, to compensate, my parents were quite observant. So we did go to synagogue every Saturday. And my mum’s always made a kosher home. When we came to England I went to Rosh Pinah first and then to JFS, so I always had a Jewish education. It was very much that liberal, north London Two Thousand Years kind of thing, with wannabe socialist, Guardian-reading parents.
