TIME OUT LONDONGemma Arterton bounds down a hotel corridor, fresh but flustered after lunch. ‘I got lipstick on my dress!’ she exclaims. Mindful of scheduled photoshoots, she playfully adopts poses that conceal the offending marks – and then starts our interview feeling bad about returning a slightly soiled dress to the designer. This is Arterton all over: spirited, funny, professional, thoughtful. She tells me that she was always the performer: both she and her sister Hannah have been acting since they were toddlers in Gravesend. ‘There are videos my mum filmed when we were about four and two years old,’ she says. ‘We were acting out Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. I’m like, “DO IT LIKE THIS! YOU HAVE TO DO IT LIKE THIS!” then she does it and I push her out of the way… God, it’s so bad.’ She gives a guilty giggle. ‘I was like, “Me! Look at me!”’

The world soon looked. After training at Rada, the actress landed a plum role in 2007’s ‘St Trinian’s’ before playing Strawberry Fields in ‘The Quantum of Solace’. Then came a couple of surprising picks, with grimy thriller ‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’ and countryside romp ‘Tamara Drewe’, before she really hit her stride with ‘Byzantium’ and 2016’s ‘The Girl with All the Gifts’. Her latest, ‘The Escape’, is a largely improvised British drama about a woman who has a breakdown and heads to Paris, leaving her husband (Dominic Cooper) and two children behind. ‘It’s a taboo subject,’ says Arterton. ‘You’ve got to be the perfect wife and the perfect mother and so many marriages break down and the husband leaves. When a woman does it, it’s seen as an awful thing: “What’s wrong with her?”’

Arterton is heartbreaking as the unhappy suburban wife, but filming wasn’t without its challenges. ‘We used real children that live in the house we were shooting in – they weren’t actors. They didn’t really understand what was happening, and they actually didn’t like me,’ she says, and this time she’s not laughing. ‘I found that really difficult. I’d walk into the room and the kids would be like, “Oh God, not her!”’

THE TELEGRAPHGemma Arterton and Dominic Savage are having their photographs taken in a London hotel. The star of the stage musical Made in Dagenham, in a blue dress, exudes confidence and energy; the writer and director of such brilliant TV dramas as Freefall (2009) and Dive (2010), in necktie and designer spectacles, appears a little shy. Having your picture taken with Arterton, he tells me afterwards, is like trying to play piano alongside a concert pianist. It makes you self-conscious.

Arterton and Savage first met 10 years ago, to talk about making a film that never happened. Arterton, then a rising star after being cast as a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace (2008), asked Savage if he would send her his films. He obliged. To that section on her shelf, she can now add The Escape, a remarkable new film that they have created together.

Arterton, twice nominated for an Olivier award, gives what might just be the performance of her career as Tara, a wife and mother-of-two who succumbs to depression after she realises she wants more from life. Savage’s camera dwells on Arterton’s face as she withdraws deep inside herself, tears forming while she submits wordlessly to a “quickie” with husband Mark (Dominic Cooper, with whom she last shared a screen in the 2010 film, Tamara Drewe, directed by Stephen Frears).

It’s a beautiful, internalised performance that, in part, grew out of Savage’s belief in improvisation: “The whole idea of a director is as controlling and in charge and all that s—,” he says. “And I don’t work that way at all”. Before filming began, the two of them talked in depth about their own lives, a process that required an unusual degree of courage. “Actors of a certain level are very untrusting,” Arterton says. “They’re nervous about opening up to you, in case it gets leaked out.”
