Laurette Marcia "Laura" Gemser (born October 5, 1950, Java, Indonesia) is a Dutch-based actress of Indo descent. She is known for her work with director Joe D'Amato and Bruno Mattei. Gemser has also been credited as Moira Chen, most notably in Love Is Forever (1983).

Gemser left Indonesia in 1955, at the age of four, and moved with her parents to the Netherlands. [1] She grew up in the Dutch city of Utrecht, where she attended the MULO Regentesseschool high school.[2] After that, she attended the Artibus Art School in Utrecht, where she specialized in fashion design. [3] In 1975 she moved to Italy.[4]

After modelling in various magazines in the Netherlands and Belgium, Gemser began to take part in some soft erotic films. She became internationally recognised after starring in a number of Black Emanuelle films in the 1970s.

Her most mainstream and well-received role was as Laotian refugee Keo Sirisomphone in Michael Landon's 1983 American television movie, Love Is Forever, in which she was credited as Moira Chen.
