Gemma Arterton has already earned prestige by playing Bond Girl Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace. Some actresses only wish for this one casting dream and then are willing to call it quits. But Gemma, determined to be more than a Bond object, pressed on and is now starring in Pirate Radio, and next year the big action/adventure Prince of Persia with a silky-haired Jake Gyllenhaal.
A word from Gemma: “If you do this big film, it will open the doors for all these brilliant things. But you have to do the big film first.”
You make it sound so easy, Gemma. I’d advice against teaching an acting class at the local annex. Those desperate actresses will tear your pretty eyes out.
