Early life[edit]

Gormley was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England moving to Barossa Valley, Australia at age 3 and a farm in Tasmania, Australia at the age of 12. She is a country girl at heart, Gormley immediately made herself at home spending her formative years on the 50-acre (200,000 m2) property.

At a young age Gormley appeared in youth community theatre with a vivid memory of her first play, which was Oliver. Gormley's attraction to theatre is that she is an only child and was really excited to have people around her. Community theatre was how she fell in love with acting.

After finishing college, Gormley travelled to the UK where she became a flight attendant for Qantas.

When Gormley returned to Australia she was accepted into NIDA, in which she was involved in technical production, teaching, directing and acting.[1] She graduated at the end of 2009.[2]

Gormley appeared in the 2010 film Before the Rain. That same year, Gormley received the role of Bianca Scott, the sister of April Scott (Rhiannon Fish), in Home and Away. She left the series in 2014 after almost four years.[3] She returned to the role in 2016.
