Actor Gemma Chan has The Mermaid of Black Conch in her bag

English actor Gemma Chan recently took part in Vogue's In the Bag video feature, where a celeb opens their bag and shows the camera what they keep inside. There, among the wet wipes and canvas tote bag, was Monique Roffey's The Mermaid of Black Conch (sporting the rare first edition cover from Peepal Tree).

Gemma Chan has starred in Sherlock and Marvel's Eternals.

“I think my bag says that I’m kind of an Asian mum that has to have everything with her for all eventualities,” she says.

Check out the video at the Vogue website, and see what else Gemma Chan keeps in her bag.
