Australian model Jessica Gomes is branching out to acting in Korea through the new movie "George and Bong-sik" (working title).

Directed by newcomer Moon Woo-seong, the comedy film revolves around a Los Angeles police officer named George, played by Jung Joon-ho, and a countryside policeman Bong-sik, played by fellow actor Shin Hyun-joon. Gomes will appear as Jung's love interest and fellow cop. This is the first time for the 24-year-old to appear in a local film.

"I am very happy to be working for a Korean film, which has become an interesting subject among Hollywood actors these days. I decided to join the production because of the script, which could also work in Hollywood", Gomes was quoted as saying by her agency.

Gomes started her modeling career at the age of 13 and has appeared in fashion magazines Vogue, Glamour, the Victoria Secret catalogue and also numerous ads for brands, including Adidas, Gap, Motorola and DKNY. In 2008, she appeared in various advertisements and entertainment shows in Korea and became famous for her looks, easy-going personality and fashion style.
